I am but a simple salaried bloke.  The pay doesn't change, fly none or fly a lot. 

Call the mechanics and tell them to be really thorough on that jet inspection.

Are you on call 24/7?  Can that easy schedule get busy in a hurry?

Not on call.  September and May are the busy months.  15 December to 10 Jan there are no flights.  Very few if any in the summer months.

The airplane is in maintenance until July 15.  There are no flights booked for the remainder of July and none in August.  This may be a very good job for cottage life. 

In the immortal words of Adam Sandler, "YOU SUCK!" :D

Dearie has flown 1-2 times in his firm's private jet (for a national oil firm).  At that time, it didn't have free movies. But they were served some food by co-pilot.

He prefers commercial..

He has been flown in other private craft by vendors (who were looking to land a big contract...) several times.  This is to look at facilities of vendors.  Nowadays...a drone would help..

The oil companies operate shuttles, not true corporate aviation.  Billionaires sure never return to airline flying over a corporate aircraft.  ie: oil companies aren't doing it right.

What aboot the fetzer valve and the ball bearings?

I think the humidity is to blame for that 7th Fetzer valve sticking.   As far as the ball bearings go, it is all ball bearings these days, so I just figured they were a given.
