And pilots complain they dont make enough money....don't know of anyone in average circles that can afford a nanny. Obviously some people are overpaid.

Take a look what people are making outside of being a pro pilot. Take a look at any experienced tradesperson and they are all making about 80,000 per year. Unfortunatly 40,000 per year really isnt a whole lot of money anymore. Try and get a mortgage with that with house prices the way they are now a...

when you out and low ball contracts and not cover your costs thats what happens........you go tits up sooner or later. The landscape is riddled with those types of operators, here today, gone tommorrow. You'd figure that these outfits, courier or medevac would ensure they contract out to reputable c...

Now here's the really sad part; judging from comments on this forum justifying bonds up front: If another big jet startup operation comes along and its terms are for pilots to put up a wad of cash for training there will be a ton of applicants banging at the door with money in hand. And when it fold...

Yes I'm am riding my high horse. I've never paid a job in my life nor do I ever intend to. And I've never worked for sh#t wages either. I'll get out of the industry before that happens. If everyone else took that stance we wouldn't be where we are today. But wave an airplane before most pilots and t...

jetsgo jobs

If pilots had any sense of dignity,ethics, and self worth they wouldn't have bought a job at Jetsgo. Unfortunately there are always desperate people out there who will do anything to get flying job or to try and get ahead. Now it's bit them hard in the ass. If Jetsgo really wanted to have set up sho...

Way to go Jetsgo

Whats with all the negativity towards Jetsgo? Calling them unsafe? I doubt it. Sure they had a few incidences, who doesn't? I fly with them a lot to get around and feel very comfortable doing so. Heck when West Jet started they had a lot of screw ups going on, a whole lot more than what's going on a...
