FAA database shows 8 VistaJet CL350s and 6 Global 5000s, all operated by Xojet, Inc which they acquired in 2018.

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".

I am not 100% sure on this but apparently positioning flights to and from the aircraft back home are all economy class and the hotels are not that great either.

I would be very interested to see how they go over the next 12 months.
A bit more than 12 months but I would be very interested to hear your views now.

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.
