Head-hunting season is open again, according to latestpilotjobs...

Anyone know whether T&Cs have changed significantly since their move to Malta and the partnerships with WheelsUP and that other US firm which name I cannot remember?

Same old same also for the roadshow run by the usual suspects?

Good luck all those in search of a seat!

Not sure I got you seven3...

The link you posted, I had figured it out myself long before you joined PPrune. My question concerns the T&Cs that VJ offers these days, with their Maltese AOC and OPS well and truly established. Lot of rumors coming from within the company and the usual speculation from outside, so since they have just began a new recruitment campaign for FOs, I think it is worth to ask what the craic is. As you may well know these terms will deeply affect the lifestyle of those offered to join the company.

Regards

Yes, sorry I just misunderstood what you wrote.

I have no clue about the new T&Cs and the mood within the company.

Latest rumour, according to another aviation website, is that they've placed an order for 12 ACJs....Back in 2007/2008 they announced similar order that was later cancelled.

Update please

Anyone able to give me a realistic view of how things are at Vistajet right now? Looking to move out of the UK to Salzburg. 5000hrs RHS airbus.

Are VJ taking unrated or only rated FO's and what is the time to command?
Any genuine info on lifestyle, pay and conditions really appreciated.

I think his point is that you don't have to move to SZG to work for them, seeing as the aircraft are all over the place anyway, not standing around there...

Any trends on fleet hiring for FOs recently? What is more likely these days with "decent" experience, 605 or Global?

Opps, I posted elsewhere about Vista. I should have looked here first.

I know of one non rated, nil jet experience pilot from SA who got into Vista.

He's getting the whole package paid for on a 3 year bond.

But the advert makes it clear they require RATED pilots.

So how does this work; do we apply anyway and risk incurring the wrath of HR and CP for wasting their time by not looking at the advert or heed the explicit wording of the advert and move on...

Actually I feel it comes down to a matter of integrity about the company concerned.

Advice and thoughts please

Who cares what the HR dept and CP think, apply and let them sort it out. If you do incur their wrath, at least, they'll remember your name. Wimps don't get ahead.

@Buzz Exclusive: VistaJet in talks with banks on possible $900 million sale - sources | Reuters

I was told that one of the perks to their staff was that you would get shares or similar and make a lot of money when the company was sold.... In my world a company like this cannot make money so the $900 million is a joke..

Warren Buffet bought NetJets in 1998 for $725 but they had a fleet of 132 aircraft....
