Airborne/Barnstorming 04.23.18: We Can Do So Much Better...

I'll Admit It... We're A Mite Frustrated, But We're ALSO Not Quitting... Ever

As possibly the last remaining truly credible independent aviation media source that hasn't cow-towed to aero-disappointments like Icon or Cirrus -- or other special interests -- we still have only one allegiance... to tell YOU the truth.

Flexjet Calls Netjets Pilot Union Statement Self-Serving And Inappropriate

Says It Is Not The First Interference From Pilot Union Representing Flexjet’s Competitor

Fractional jet company Flexjet has dismissed as self-serving a NetJets pilot union press statement criticizing Flexjet’s interaction with its pilots.

Oddly, the statement that attacks the Company and supports the Teamsters fails to mention that just a few days ago, more than half of Flexjet’s pilots called for a vote to decertify the Teamsters as its union representative. The vote is scheduled to begin May 2, 2018.
