So the CFO left after a couple of years, now replaced by 2 interim co-CFOs. Feeling the pressure to generate revenues perhaps?

I hear they are attempting to be financially "creative".

Has anybody been invited for an interview in the last week? My application has changed from submitted to under review, things might be moving... slowly!

Any news at Vista?
Are you guys flying more or less "pre-covid" levels or still far to go?

COVID aside...

Does anyone know whether Brexit will affect the hiring of British pilots in the future ?

Surely you'll be required to hold a valid EASA license at time of employment. Will a national UK license be an EASA license after a hard Brexit? We'll know in 18 days.

No, we know now and have done for months. With or without a deal, from 1st January a UK issued licence is no longer an EASA licence. So will be no use for a job at Vistajet or any other European operator. Probably academic, since you also ned the right to live and work in Europe which 99.9% of Brits won't have.

Ok, I didn't realize this was already set in stone. Sorry for that chaps. Is it possible for license holder of an UKCAA issued EASA license to convert to another EASA issuing country and this way maintain the EASA license alongside the UK license? Thx.

You can only hold one EASA licence per category of aircraft at the same time.

The only solution is to change SOLI from UK to another EASA member state, then after 1st January 2021, use that to get either a validation or a full UK CPL/ATPL.

Evening all,

Does anyone have any up to date info on the interview process for VJ? Looking to apply under 'general consideration' and want to know what to expect if and when I get a call. not expecting anything this side of next year of course, but info in the back of the head will help!

Thanks,

CloudChopper

VistaJet Check in rules

Hello Everybody

I have heard somewhere that VistaJet have a check in time of 45 min before OFF BLOCK.

Is there anybody who knows if this is true, and maybe how they can do this?

Thank you very much :-)

What's wrong with that? We have a check in time of 40 minutes before off block when out of base.

Offtopic, but out of curiosity... do you actually show up at the airport 40 minutes before scheduled off block and only then start preparing your flight?

40 mins might work in cargo ops, but wonít work with lowcost passengers or business jets.
Ryanair has the same but I guarantee you the FO at least will be in the airport at least eobt -60 if not earlier, not a secret. Green light for boarding is what, -35? Letís be serious please.
Business jets pilots will be atb the airport even earlier than -60, and I speak by experience

You indeed can prob. get any biz jet ready in 30 minutes without considering fuel/water/lavatory. 10min to get airside and to the aircraft depending on the location.
Regarding Catering & Cabin preparation however I have my doubts and the IFS needs at least somebody to power up the AC.
If the client turns up early and wants to go with 40min only...yuk! One hour check-in is still rough more often - 90 to 120min is what we have mostly.
