I donít know your profile and Is not my intention to criticise your choices, far from me, I m talking in general.
Is absolutely acceptable from low hours or cadet accept any conditions and Blackmail for start(with unionís complaisance) but not from experienced people and more what the European Union is doing, if we have one?

good luck Camel and all the best sincerely.
Thank you sir, no hard feelings from me, we are all in the same business and I wish everyone success.

Whatís truly great for me is we can live in our lovely home, the kids are happy at school. There are no jobs at my local airport, the loco job was a bit of a drive and Iím not going back to that. I would get called on days off, last minute shift changes and low salary - I left for better T&Cís and I got it. We canít all be ďat the top of the food chainĒ.

So if I dug my heels in and insisted on ďeven better termsĒ I would have to up root the family to near a major city. That would not be great for the family.

I personally feel Iím on a great gig. I really enjoy it. Iím happy and my family are happy.

I signed up here to post my opinion regarding the Air Hamburg takeover. Here Vista completely destroyed a really cool flight operation with a good atmosphere. A reporting culture is being introduced more and more, fleet chiefs are putting a lot of pressure on pilots and functioning systems are being abolished for no reason. We don't have 17/13 yet. But everyone is sure that it will come. And those who can and are lucky look for a new job. There must have been 30 people quitting already.

Hey!

Has anyone recently had an interview at VistaJet to work for Air Hamburg? If so, what kind of roster was offered?

Cheers!

Ran into some pax the other day waiting 8 hours in the FBO for a recovery plane due to AOG. They said this was the 4th consecutive time they had a VJ or AH jet go AOG and leave them stranded with no recovery plan.

I am a full time employee and the job is fine. For me personally I actually enjoy it. Yes we train during the 13 off days but itís all explained prior to signing the contract.
No mate you misunderstood my post.
I was responding to ATOguy, who said that we as pilots who are away a lot in general shouldnít complain since we work far less than a generic full time person.
My response was that I disgree with that reasoning.

If you are willing to sell your soul, have at it.

Rather try one of the US airlines, they will treat you better and pay more.

No doubt, hence my comment about it being below the going rate in the US. However, no majors are offering Ozzies (or anyone else) assistance getting the E3 visa, at least not yet. My feeling is that Vista will lose these pilots as soon as they can move on to greener pastures, but that may even be part of the plan as long as it keeps the turbines spinning with enough pilots in their seats.

Yes, this may work for a charter outfit, such a HastaLaVistaJet, but not the likes of NetJets US which seems to be loosing a lot of experienced pilots, being replaced with new faces and less experienced pilots (lower entry requirements than the past!).

Yes, correct. From what I understood, Aussies are able to join US regional carriers. This might be a more viable stepping stone to the US majors.
