My brother in law is a captain and he overheard the chief pilot say this yesterday.

My friend there stated he would be displaced, well not yet, if he does not move from his current base. I guess he stated that ASA planes would pick up some western routes. Does this sound right? Man that would suck.

I would imagine if that happens it would be because SKYW makes SLC all SKYW, taking the 70's out there and sending those ASA pilots back to ATL. That would suck, and I'm sure they couldnt train enough people on their side very fast ----- but who knows? That would really suck for all those SLC people, most who just were forced to move up from DFW!

GEORGE DUBYA,

Who is your brother in law so I can call him and verify it?

Good old George is a flamer.... He works (or so he says) for Colgan and writes like he's 16.

I thought ASA was cancelling flights due to lack of coverage, now furloughs, NOT!

that's just BS we are actually gonna grow even more next year we are getting at least 28 CRJ-700's out of the 46 aircraft that were awarded to Skywest-ASA beginning next year. So I figure we are gonna need to hire at least another 200 guys and gals or so for next year to staff those new airplanes. As a matter of fact I was in FSI today in Atlanta and it was bussines as usual they were even interviewing people today and they had a new hire class in basic indoc. They did cancel a few classes next month but only because we are way behind in training and we are short of instructors. They have at least 50 typed captains waiting for IOE plus the sims are going 24hrs and they are still behind in training. Plus the whole Airline is getting Cat 2 qualified and they need extra time to train those guys as well.

:cool: We are hiring like crazy! Another new class of flight attendants and pilots going through class right now. I am in CAT II training right now and it is MORE than business as usual. We need to keep the pilots coming to keep those new airplanes filled! :)

I dont think SkyWest has ever furlough a pilot? Maybe if ASA is over staffed. SkyWest does run realy thin on pilots.

They can't possibly run any thinner than ASA is right now.

Also, for what it's worth (and it really isn't much), ASA has never furloughed a pilot either. But it's more for business reasons than a goodwill thing.

do you guys realize this is a game some of the ASA instructors play? they see who can't start the craziest rumors and how long it takes to get through the pilots lounge and back to training department.

If ASA is getting 28 70 seaters that will be nearly 600 training events. Each airplane should be staffed with about 5.5 crews, or 11 pilots. That would mean 308 new hires, plus another 200, or so for attrition.

But things could change on a dime. 40 of the 50 seat airplanes are being left on Delta's books so that they will be wasy to dump if (when) Delta has a serious retrenchment.

I thought every one started a rumour from time to time just to see how long it took to get back to them! You have to entertain yourself some how.;)
