For those of you considering a career as a flight attendant, perhaps rethinking your aspirations to work on a corporate jet would be the best approach for you to take. After all, who wouldn’t want to be the sole flight
attendant on board a $45 million dollar jet winging passengers and crew in five-star comfort to destinations around the world? The high level of service you will be providing, your pay and benefits, and overall working conditions trumps anything that the airlines can possibly offer.
In case you haven’t noticed, business aviation is booming. Yes, those small jets that are often parked on the other side of the field at airports all across the US are in great demand.
40 New Aircraft For NetJets
Just last week Gulfstream Aerospace Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of General Dynamics, reached an agreement with NetJets to supply a total of 40 new Gulfstream aircraft. The agreement is valued at approximately $1.9 billion which means that four Gulfstream G450s and four Gulfstream G550s will be delivered to NetJets each year from 2012 through 2016. This deal also includes a long-term maintenance support agreement.
No, that may not sound like a lot of jets being delivered, but NetJets has the largest business jet service in the world. NetJets provides long-range service for corporations, wealthy individuals, and celebrities who must be able to fly on short notice. NetJets has over 90% of the long-range cabin fractional market and is the largest operator of Gulfstream aircraft in the world. As of June 2008 NetJets’ worldwide Gulfstream fleet totals 110 and is comprised of 21 Gulfstream G550/V, 55 Gulfstream G450/400/IV-SP and 34 Gulfstream G200s.
In the US, NetJets has two fleets operating — one flying Falcon Jets, the second flying Gulfstreams. The Falcon Jet side of the business isn’t accepting applications right now, but the Gulfstream side is. So, if you are interested in applying, then why not send your resume out today?
