Hi,

I am not sure I have ever seen how many days in a row one can consistently have off using the various schedules(probably 14/14).

It would be helpful in some decision making.
We try to make the schedule as flexible as possible and the number of consecutive days off can be as little as 3, with no limit on the other end. If you are on the 14/14 schedule then you have 14 days off to play with in any given 28 day block. There is a max of 8 consecutive work days at a time (up to 13 if you sign an optional waiver), and generally the longer you're available to work, the longer the stretches of days off can be. Commonly we see 7 on and 7 off for the 14/14 folks. But, some like to run longer shift.. example: 13 days on, 14 days off and and then back into work.

Cheers,
Thanks for the information,

Is one able to consistently get 14 in a row off similar to a rotational job.
In order to consistently get 14 days off in a row you would need to consistently work longer stretches (say 13 consecutive work days). There would certainly be some less off day stretches, simply based on the system trying to keep everyone happy, but you would probably see an 85-90% success rate assuming that's all you were asking the bidding system for.

We are going to take a breather for the next 45 days and see what the environment looks like after. Regrettably, this week we did have to cancel some expected hires as we will be unable to train them (Simulators in the US). We do expect to see continued growth and hiring as the world gets back to normal.

I would say that there are no longer currently any vacant positions and when things turn around we will look at posting the positions again.

Thanks,

James

Is AirSprint going to follow the model that Flexjet is putting into place in the US?

Hi Hawker Driver,

We have had some fairly significant changes in the past two weeks as we have been diligently working at significantly reducing airline travel and we continue to look at all options to ensure the safety and well being of our owners and crews.

Average days worked per month is 14?? That's a lot in the corporate jet world.
14 days may seem like a lot but some months a lot of that is sitting around not to mention I have met corporate guys who fly a lot more than we do not knowing when they will actually be home. The company provides the ability to have a schedule that you are bidding for and from my experience I have gotten my bid every time.

Greetings to all,

I hope all is well and everyone is staying safe from this crisis.
I had a small question for HR. What would happen if we were put into a pool for future positions. With this crisis; does that blow us out of the water for any future positions when this thing subsides or do we remain in the pool? Thanks to all:)

Yes, I second the question; enquiring minds want to know!

Hi Sky_Conqueror and ayseven,

Anyone that has been placed into the pool for future considerations will remain there. Only applicants that we feel would be a good fit for AirSprint are placed into the pool. When new positions open up we often look to the pool first, but entertain new applications as well.

That said, our main priority will be returning our inactive pilot group back to active status first as we transition out of the pandemic.

I encourage both of you to contact either myself or Matt Sanders directly for hiring updates as we are both happy to provide them at any time.

Hope that helps and that you both are staying safe and healthy!

Thanks for that. It is not that often people take the time to communicate with prospective employees. It says something.
