Does anyone know much about the company Air Wisconsin?

Has anyone here ever worked for them?

Are they owned by United Airlines?

We are not owned by United. Go to www.airwis.com for info. We are not going to be flying for United as of April '06 (assuming nothing changes).

Boy, oh boy! You are truely internet handicapped if you couldn't even find your way to the Air Wisconsin website...never mind use the search features of this site!

This request surely will cause some interesting responses. Is this what people do when they are bored? I refuse to believe that this was an honest question.

What makes you say this? I am looking for some opinions of pilots that fly for them. I found the website and could not find information on who owned the airline.

Shoot, there are active threads about AWAC on the first 2 pages of this forum...

Talk about Lazy AND Lame! It speaks of the ownership in the first sentence of their home page and then there is the history page that goes more in depth...but I suppose one doesn't need to be able to read AND comprehend to fly!! Yeah, memorization will get you that regional job, that's it!

Might as well ask about headsets and luggage while you are at it too!

Reading your post, first thing that comes to mind is "where have you been living???" AWAC is one of the most reputable and well known regional. If you want to get into this industry, you will definetly have to learn about who's who. You have come to the right place though.

Scratchin my head'

You know, it doesn't matter who comes on this board to ask a question, there is always somebody that's gotta be a Smart A$$!! Not only that, but just downright rude.
Yeah the questions most likely could've been answered if he scrolled back 3 or 4 pages but he didn't. Big Deal!!!!!!!
Air Wisc. is one of the leading Regional's contract wise. They are not owned by United, but by private investor's. You can find alot of info about them on this message board. They're hiring right now. I've heard they're starting classes after the first of the year. They've got East Coast Bases, so if you're on the E.Coast then you're lucky. If not then have fun commuting if that's the lifestyle you choose to live. Goodluck..............

This is coming from a Military Intelligence guy.

AWAC is being slightly selective in choosing new hires. I've been lucky enough to be pary of an upcoming class. They're really people friendly and are totally into quality of life.

They have 6 primary investors: 3 from the east coast and 3 investors that have been with the company from the beginning. There is alot of loyalty within the company. Example: During the preliminary Sim session I met Stan. Stan had been with AWAC 25 years. On the day of the Sim the gentleman giving the Sim had been with the company for 30 years and his son Chad works for the company also.

I'm really glad that I mad the cut.

Ding! We have another thin-skinned pilot here at Smartassinfo, er, flightinfo.com. Them Air Willy guys are going to have fun with you! Good luck with training in ATW - you're going to need it.

Friendly piece of advice - ATW is a VERY small town. You'd be well-advised to keep a low profile.

Hmm

HMM, you're a prime example of what I'm talking about. Literally.....

On the second note, what's the deal with AWAC if you don't get hired. Do they send you a "no thankyou" letter in the mail?

YES.

YES.

YES, and they have a flow through for the pilots. If you're a hot stick, you can usually bypass the senior guys and go right to the Boeing 777.

Good luck, you're definitely going places with your dedication and resourcefulness.

This could have changed. Offers are made on the telephone on Fridays after all the interviews are completed and decisions made. Letters are sent out shortly there after. Lack of contact would be an oversight so call Appleton if you don't hear anything in two weeks. They will let you know where you stand.

How about us poor Indy pilots getting furloughed at the end of the month?
What are our chances to get picked up?

Odds are good but I think it depends on your timing. They were holding information sessions trying to recruit pilots, but I believe they have stopped until after the holidays.

Fax and mail your resume right away. They really like pilots already qualified on the CRJ, and they plan on hiring a lot in the next 6 months. You guys get an accelerated course, which means they won't have to use as much sime time and they can get you out on the line quicker.

Don't plan on being able to hold DCA, even reserve, for awhile though. You'll get ORF or PHL. DCA very senior right now, but that could change.
