They are still up and running but with 2 planes I believe and a handful of pilots. Yes COVID-19 has harmed everybody but it is unlikely this company was going to survive after what I have seen. The day to day policies and decisions made were not very good at all. If they are here in a year still I will be amazed...

IMO FJ chose the wrong AOC to use as a European launch springboard.

I almost took a position with them, but elected to stay with my current operation... Glad about that decision now by the sounds of it.

Yes, FlexJet were 2 years too late to enter the European market! You need to change job when the market starts opening up - otherwise you might be at the end of the queue when times get rough, like now. For all the employees of FlexJet I hope that the company will make it through these hard times.

Well, what a great, giant step towards becoming a major player.

Any news on the company? Last I've read is that the European expansion is postponed for spring 2021, but that's all. I also see that Learjet 75 has been removed from their fleet list on their website, so I guess it's not an option anymore?
