Winter 2001 had major paper write downs on aircraft valuations (over 1 billion). It is...
I have more of a problem with ATA and their completely unethical business practices. They continued advertising for several months, in magazines like Flying, ASA as a bridge airline when ASA had pulled the plug on them and their program for poor quality. In addition, with several students they...
Excellent training. A good bunch of guys and the training department is not the "gotcha" kind. They do all their training with in-house instructors, using United sims at TK in Denver. Slow hiring and a great company to work for. Rumors of international expansion to Mexico and Canada.
"I've seen no shyness from some of those willing to pick up (AND JUSTIFY) extra time."
The SSC has reported that last month less than 50 hours of overtime was picked up throughout the entire system. That's 2/3 of a pilot on the street, but when you consider 9500 some pilots, this is still a...
A Lorenzo fan?
A SCAB is a SCAB FOREVER. Do not be fooled by whomever this CAL ja may be, your actions will NOT be forgotten by rEAL pilots.

***Censored*** is a SCAB!!! Like any SCAB, he will do whatever it takes to turn your back so that he can put a knife in it. The story of this SCABs ability to lie is entertaining, and illustrative of the lengths to which any SCAB will go to STEAL YOUR JOB!
When told he had to retire...
FSI = Berkshire Hathaway
EJA = Berkshire Hathaway
Odds of Berkshire Hathaway starting an indoc program at FSI Academy to create profits with the promise of moving low time pilots to EJA where they can do type ratings at FSI training centers all over the country owned by Berkshire Hathaway?
Response to Flying Sig
The grievance on SJs and the 124 is being held in abeyance until March, in return for no furloughs in Jan and Feb. Hopefully things will start to settle down and some real fleet planning will take place in the meantime.
The info on the Delta passes is appreciated. UAL...
Short Courses and Retirements.
Bear in mind that 100 new hires requires a lot more capacity than re-quals and short courses. Haven't heard anything on many people taking early outs. Projected 2002 retirements are 360 (don't know if that includes 20% for herpes or not, some figures do, some...
