Metrojet Hong Kong

Does anyone have any information for Metrojet, a corporate charter service in Hong Kong?

I'm interested in the terms and conditions and the experience from anyone who is either still there or have been there.

Thank you.

A little birdie told me they are looking for pilots as well, I think 3000hrs minimum.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm also interested in terms and conditions, scheduling, benefits etc.

Wondering if it's anything like NetJets, i.e. one week on one week off etc.

More input will be much appreicated, especially from the current or past cockpit crew. Thanks again.

Have a few friends there, they tell me roster is dependant on the owner, pilots as a rule are tied to 1 a/c and one owner, so depends how much they wan't to go flying and to where.
It's definitely not 1 week on 1 off, and the hrs per year seem to be anything between 200-500.
I believe T&Cs are dependant on the owner also, ball park figures seem to be 85,000HKD/month for f/o and 130,000HKD for skipper, as far as I know that is all inclusive with little or no benefits ( eg. schooling, medical, gratuity, CNY bonus etc etc ), not that they are bad T&Cs by any stretch !

Appreciate all the info everyone. And $130,000 HKD sounds pretty good considering the amount of hours flown annually. Some of Hong Kong's best kept secret perhaps...

If anyone cares to add anymore please do. Thanks.

I believe a bunch of KA f/o's are about to join, due to lack of expansion/opportunity at Dragon.
