Probably better that I don't know until my start day, especially if it changes. Just struggling to contain my excitement and impatience!

When us old farts joined the company, we indeed got to know our fleet assignments only on day 1 of Indoc: there was name tag on the desk, paired with the aircraft type folders. Back in the days I did not know what a "Citation 560XL" was. Something small....

And just because on Day 1 you have an XLS on your desk, doesn't mean that's what you'll do your type rating on. As with anything with NJE, it'll change.

I was lucky, there was no rating-swap necessary. But others on my Indoc did that, due to body-height.

Disappointed to get the XLS on my training bond, but hey, an airplane is an airplane. Only disappointed because I like new tech and the XLS is the oldest airplane in the fleet. I’m excited to get a new type rating either way. And hopefully I can eventually bid onto something else. I’ll happily take the phenom. I know not everyone is keen on the lemon

on another note. How does one join the union? I’m given to understand that NJ has its own union.

i’m not exactly a “fight the man” kinda person but i do like representation.

Until the paper work is signed off, nothing's happened. Folks have moved types before Indoc's finished. Yes, we do. Are you in Indoc? Ask the lads. Otherwise, see your PM.

It didn't take that long for me but understand there's only 2 or 3 people looking at all the applications and also then conducting online and face to face interviews. So time probably varies a bit, you will definitely be told either way though so no news is good news for now.

Hi,

Can anyone tell me what a typical day at NetJets is like on the smaller size fleets?

I understand there's a lot of changes etc throughout the day but maybe a day from your roster in the past?

Thanks!!

Typical day? Are you talking Summer or Winter? Peak season? Special airports included?
A normal revenue flight would have you showing at the FBO around 1.5 to 2 hours before planned departure. Usual pilot stuff plus making sure the cabin is prepared and the catering put away. Keep an eye on the flight plan to see if there's any CTOTs etc. Negotiate the TSAT and work out if it's a push back or taxi off stand.
45-30 min before departure. One of us will go to the FBO to collect the pax and luggage. Liase with your colleague about the luggage and any delays if required.
Board and settle the pax. Brief the pax. Show where the food and drinks are. Serve a drink if there's time.
Normal pilot stuff.
During the flight go back and check that the pax are fine and happy with things.
30 ish minutes before landing, tidy up, prepare the cabin and brief the pax on the weather and check if transport is organised.
Normal pilot stuff.
Escort pax to FBO and make sure they and their luggage gets away fine.
Clean cabin, restock where required. Refuel and toilet service if required. Prepare aircraft for the next flight.
Repeat.

Clean?? WTF. Does this mean NJ pilots gets paid the Cabin Crew salary in addition to the pilot salary or that´s included in the pilot pay?

Only 1 of the main euro fleets is big enough to require cabin crew.

The others have Inflight Service Reps some of the time and the small fleets only have 2 pilots.

Sorry if €300k isn’t enough for you to run a wipe over the tables after a flight.

The Falcons and the Globals have FAs, the Challenger may have ISRs "only". But essentially they do the same job, except for the safety briefing that has to be done by the flight crew.

Cleaning the cabin is - in 90% of cases - quickly done. There are only a few flights where the cabin may look like after someone has detonated a bloody food-bomb. And GloballyChallenged writes: I don't mind doing this for a salary like this. It's part of the job. If someone does not feel comfortable with this kind of work, stay away from business aviation!

Since when have pilots become too good to do some wiping of surfaces etc? Especially for this excellent salary. The whole point of working in GA instead of the airlines is to have that sense of “ownership” for the airplane while on tour. Can’t wait

I used to help the CC pick up rubbish on the turnaround if I had time when I flew a certain pink jet. It boosted morale, shortened the turnaround, and on rare occasions resulted in a wee token of gratitude like a bar of chocolate during the next leg.

Now,
where’s that bin bag?

Netjets US just announced the start of home base airport program, instead of gateway, any idea if Netjets Europe will follow suit?
