Ready to Fly in Kansas City, Missouri said: Hi Mirlad, is Falcon Air still hiring? I would love to live in Miami and see they are based there. I hope you don't mind answering a few questions for me. What was your interview like? How long is training? Paid or upaid? What is the percentage needed to pass tests? Any retakes on tests? Do they provide accomodations during training? What is their minimum guarantee of hours?

Thanks so much. Good luck in training!

i believe they still are hiring!!check their website flyfalconair.com or careerbuilder.com good luck and hope to see you in miami

Thanks Marlad. I'm filling out the application now. Do you have time to answer some of the other questions I asked? A lot of airlines put that information on their website but I didn't see it on Falcon Air's site. Maybe it's different with a charter. I just like to be well informed if I'm fortunate enough to get an interview.

I'm excited for you and would love to get this opportunity also.

Thanks so much Marlad. Is Miami the only base Falcon Air is hiring for right now? Then will they hire later for the other bases or are some of the Miami FAs going to be sent to the new bases?

And yes, I would love to know more about training when you get your packet.

FC, if you can provide me with amy more information while I'm waiting to hear back from Marlad, I'd appreciate it. Do you live in Miami now and did they say they were recruiting for just the Miami base or other bases as well? How many planes do they have and are they all the MD83s? What was the pay? How many were at your Open House and then did they conduct one on one interviews?

Thanks so much in advance for answering anything you can. I really appreciate it. Good luck to you and Marlad!

Thanks so much and good luck?

AirSick in Missoula, Montana said: Falcon is recruiting for SAT and MYR...SAT flying is prisoners back to central America for ICE. Not sure what the flying is out of MYR.

The SAT contract was being flown by Capital Airlines but they lost the contract. Now Xtra and Falcon are doing the SAT flying. No service on those flights, all you do is sit in the jumpseat, you cannot walk through the aisle due to the type of passengers. At least that was how it was at Capital and I think Vision is doing the ICE flights out of Alexandria, they just sit....no service. The guards escort the pax to the lav, and also get up to get water.

Well, thats good info...thank you

Ready to Fly in Kansas City, Missouri

This was an OPEN HOUSE Interview they basically said all FA;s in Miami that were interested to work for Falcon Air, had to accept to relocate to Arizona or Texas and that MYR,SC would be opening base around JULY for a seasonal job then maybe If they have availabily in Punta Gorda,FL which is close to Tampa and Sarasota,FL then those interested in being based in FL might go there IF". PAy is 21.85 for 60 hours guaranteed flight time,that 1311.00 before taxes. and they kinda give you some info on the crash pads after training usually around 200 bucks a month. not bad! Im very excited Cant wait to get a call I been waiting for this opportunity in a long time!! I think they dont have many planes because remember its charter, they didnt really talk about that + they have all the benefit and cover parcial medical health benefits. ALso it was mentioned we might be discounted on Spirit or JEtblue which is awesome! good luck.
dont forget to mail RESUME+COVER LETTER+ APPLICATION.

Is there any pay for training and are hotel accomodations/meals provided during training?

And Airsick am I understanding you correctly that some people are being hired after a phone interview and are not having to attend a group or face to face interview? Was that because the applicant lived a long ways from Miami where the interview was being held and since Falcon Air is a charter they are unable to provide transportation to the interviews?

Thanks again for your time!

how did you find out about the SAT contract and do you know what the seasonal fly is going to be in MYR, They are also opening a base in arizona, any word for that anyone?it also looks like xtra airways is hiring for the same positions in the same locations. Are both these charters working together on certain contracts, would just be nice to know? Does anyone know if they pay for training , do they take care of hotel acc. I guess whoever goes to training---i guess we eat burger king for a few weeks and go to the gym for the month to work it off..LOL

I was interviewd, drug tested and invited to training with Falcon Air Express in the last week, but on Friday afternoon I recieved a dissapointing email from the manager of inflight stating that the f/a class had been delayed and that i will be contacted on Monday. Does anyone know whay is going on? Apparently the class was originally scheduled for Tuesday May 4th. I really hope they call me, sounds like a great oppuritunity. I was also told that the bases they were hiring for were atlantic city, san antonio and mesa, arizona.
