Catreus UK. Anyone know anything about them ?

A friend was offered a FO job with Catreus in the UK though is being asked to pay 28,000usd for a Phenom 300 rating.
I've never heard of this outfit. Anyone got any info ? Are they legit ? Is it a stable job (as far as biz jets ops go) ?

Thanks

They're a legit outfit with AOC, several Citations under management, mainly Excels, don't tend to have home base, move around where they are needed by owners and chartered where available for charter. Been around several years. Lean and efficient.

Leaving aside the ethics of paying for a type rating for a second...

$28k for a Phenom type rating?! If it was something a bit more useful (Boeing, Airbus) then maybe...

Could explain why buzzc152`s friend needs to pay for his won rating.

Here is another link to another company which is no longer with us. Cy Williams of Catreus was a director of that one also.
