    Herk, Thanks for the chart. Yes, it's all a moot point now. It's gotten crazy.

    Atlas Air?

    Just as an observer, you might want to do a lot more reading about conditions at Atlas. It appears the situation isn't particularly positive at the moment. Check APC and Jetcareers forums. Hope it works out for you.

    Anyone know of a list of retirements by year @ different airlines Yeah 65 just add 5

    Thanks, Herc. As an aside, I recently saw a statement (and I think a chart) showing that AA is going to increase the amount of off-the-street, civilian-only hiring in 2020. Now, of course, I can't remember where I saw it but I think it came from an internal AA memo. Would you happen to have...

    MOXY...Neeleman's latest start up

    Bits & pieces re Moxy: “There is, however, one outstanding issue with basing an airline in Utah. There are fewer executives with airline operations experience, so Neeleman’s startup is expected to keep an East Coast base for its operational team. That group will work on certifying the carrier...

    MOXY...Neeleman's latest start up

    Is Neeleman on the verge on a launch ? “Breeze Aviation will locate their corporate headquarters in Salt Lake, Utah. The company plans to create 369 jobs in the next five years. Breeze Aviation plans to unveil an as-yet-unnamed low-cost carrier in the new year which will provide flyers with...

    Asian Start-Up Airlines

    Anyone who can go to the PRC and fly for one of their airlines is a better man than I. Flying Upside Down was a fun read though. The author hinted at a Volume 2 but I haven't seen it yet.

    Purdue University Bachelor's Degree

    Purdue has shortened its bachelor's degree curriculum to three years. Not too sure that has any effect on the pilot shortage: https://generalaviationnews.com/2019/11/14/new-three-year-program-designed-to-alleviate-pilot-shortage/

    Asian Start-Up Airlines

    Interesting wrinkle on Starlux, a Taiwan start-up. Appears they're funding the cost to their ab initio pilots. However, not sure what "accommodated" means: "Our cadets will be trained in the United States for approximately one year prior to receiving their Commercial Pilot License, followed...

    ImagineAir Expansion ?

    I make no claim of business acumen or knowledge but I just don't see how a company like this could make a go of it. Even with light jets the model didn't last. DayJets ? PogoJets ? I just don't see market enough to sustain it.

    DOT Helps Vets Become Pilots ?

    This appears to be the same idea as Forces to Flyers. Why are both programs needed ? "Democrat Tammy Baldwin, along with Sen. John Hoewven, R-N.D., has reintroduced the American Aviator Act that would offer funding for veterans to train to become airline pilots."...
