Anyone know anything about these guys?

Guess its 135 with SAABs. Guy just called me, left a message saying he was looking for SAAB pilots...I've never heard of them and never applied.

Anyone?

They have one SAAB that they use to fly no more than 8 people a trip from FXE to Bimini a few times a day. I have heard from a former employee of lowsy management and bounced paychecks.

They don't fill the plane up for Bimini because there is no fire truck there. It's also a 15 minute trip for the SAAB. All VFR.

I talked to the guy today-

$38,000/year for FOs
$62,000/year for CAs

No benefits.

2 SAABs now, getting 2 more for a CPA in South America. Want me as a CA.

Not bad pay when compared to other Saab companies.

I dont consider Colgan to have any benefits when I cant afford any health benefits, and they dont match 401k. The only thing that is a "benefit" to me are the travel privileges.

BIA used to have a HUGE mixed fleet from 402's and 208's through Hawkers, now they have just a handful of planes. That's all I know, have not spoken to anyone that has worked for them.
