In a time of serious economic turmoil in the business world, isn't flight dept cost something that gets bean counter's attention ? Zap said they don't expect pilots to "pay to play" so does this mean they're spending lots money to fund a high turnover in the flight dept ?I don't know any specifics about the job but do know that their flight department has EXCEEDINGLY high turn over.
Zap,Oh...and by the way with regard to "Pay to Play". Crew training costs are just a part of doing business.
Amen, Bro. Most of the corp jobs ads I see say "...typed and current..." so it's nice to see a company doing things the right way. It's rare to see one say "...will type the right person...".
The airlines around the world are just as bad, if not worse, in terms of "pay to play" and certainly don't seem to think training cost is part of their obligation. Lots of pilots looking, so maybe the airlines don't have to foot the training cost.
I take it you are happy at HD despite of references to high turnover ? Stay away from the airline biz...
Zap,Our organization just hired three and, I may be mistaken, but I don't think any of them were typed in the airplane beforehand.
