Open Jaw

Janet airline is the name of a small fleet of passenger aircraft that serve the famous Area 51, the U.S. Air Force top-secret base in the Nevada desert, along with some key military airbases used for research and development.

Janet unofficially stands for “Just Another Non Existent Terminal”, is a shuttle service operated by AECOM a private defense contractor, from a terminal at LAS with a small fleet of Boeing 737-600 jets. It`s livery is a simple nose to tail red line with no other markings. Janet also operates 5 smaller Beechcraft with similar anonymity. overall white with red cheatline livery., along with  two Beechcraft 1900s and threeBeechcraft 200Cs painted white with less noticeable blue trim stripes.

Well, our friend and journalist Ian D’Costa has just discovered that the secret airline is hiring.

“Aside from military aircraft with proper clearance, Janet flights are the only aircraft in the U.S., let alone the rest of the world, allowed to access Restricted Area 4808 North, the airspace above and around Groom Lake. As you can imagine, flying for Janet, while probably not terribly exciting, is a hell of a cool job, and recruiting tends to be very selective and exclusive."

AECOM listed the job posting for a First Officer based out of LAS adding in the listing that there is a requirement for a background check and the ability to hold a Top Secret clearance from the U.S. government. A candidate applying for the First Officer’s position with Janet should also apparently have a minimum of 2000 hours generated in fixed wing aircraft, of which at least 1000 hours have to be in turbine-powered (jet) aircraft. It’s also preferable for the candidate to possess high-performance aircraft experience, though apparently not a strict requirement. This potentially gives former military pilots a competitive edge over civilian counterparts. Previous experience as pilot-in-command (PIC) of an alien spaceship or the Millennium Falcon not required either.

"So if you qualify, and you can find them… maybe you can join, the Janet team.”

But, in spite of their secretive nature of its operation Janet flights can be tracked online on as the following tweets (courtesy of @CivMilAir) prove.
