    Arinc

    Anyone know the inside story on ARINC in Annapolis, MD? They posted 4 openings for Flight Coordinators a month or two ago; after submitting my app through the website, they sent me a list of questions to be answered. Then, nothing. They posted again for 1 opening, then again for 3. Are they...

    The Greatest Generation

    I've been a pretty avid collector of aviation books over the last 20-25 years (not as intense as some, but I still have a decent collection). I actually don't think I've ever come across a first-hand account of the German bomber pilot experience in that era. Lots of stuff from fighter pilots...

    Job Openings

    Starting pay in 2012 at US was a base of about $36K (plus change....don't have the exact numbers in front of me), but after finishing training and passing the comp check, it bumps up to $39ish. Adding in holidays and some OT, you can make $40-$45K first year. Second year base is $52K, Year 3 is...

    The Greatest Generation

    Amen to that. I've had similar experiences on a number of occasions. A relative at the family gatherings who had flown B-24s over Ploesti, and been shot down and injured and protected by the underground to get him back to his unit; the group of guys who rented rooms in the same house at Oshkosh...

    AA/US Ops center

    There will definitely be some attrition, as the age demographics of both work groups are skewed toward retirement age. US is looking for possibly 10 Dispatchers right now, and the openings are posted on the website. I would post the link but I am using a borrowed laptop and can't figure out the...

    AA/US Ops center

    Most people's money is on Dallas as the location of the merged OCC. There are those who put forth arguments about how there is more space in PIT than in the DFW facility, and those who say it could be PHX or CLT for various reasons, but that could be as much wishful thinking as anything based in...

    FEDEX Jumpseat

    FedEx jumpseat I am a dispatcher looking at possibly jumpseating on FedEx this summer. What is the dress code and the procedure to get on? Is there a number to call to list in advance, or do you just show up? Thanks!

    AA/US Merger and the future of US SOC at PIT

    I was told that the AA dispatchers are TWU, same as the AA mechanics, so I guess it's a package deal. Word in the PIT OCC at the moment is that everyone expects to be consolidated in Dallas if the deal goes through, which is also the belief of the AA dispatch contacts that we have. Sucks for...

    US Airways hiring in PIT

    Just got mine! I've heard that they finally got Finance to allow them to hire the 4 they have needed for a while, plus they are trying to get 4 more due to attrition known to be coming soon. There is also a rumor that they may be getting the 10 E-190s back from Republic, and that would require...

    US Airways hiring in PIT

    So, did anyone hear from HR on returning for phase II? They'd told they were planning an August class, but I recently heard that could slip to possibly October. That's a long way from February when the openings were posted....

    I didn't ask about that specifically, but they didn't indicate that it was different for anyone. I'll ask again as the process continues.

    US Airways hiring in PIT

    Hard to say, but they expect a lot of retirements in the next 3-5 years, so it may not take too long.

    US Airways hiring in PIT

    My friends there said the schedule is 4 PMs, 2 off, 4 AMs, 4 off. New hires can expect to work a relief line, in which case you will work all over the office and have liitle structure to your schedule until you can bid a real line.
