uh...can't do it, it would be so easy (expansion) with the Colgans. Good luck there, it's gotten alot of people where they want to go, or the next step in where they want to go. Get lots of time, apply elsewhere, and bail.

Route structure go to colgan.com We have a contract with Continental to name the 50 seater by the end of the year if that works for you. It's going to most likely be the saab 2000. Not sure but probably somewhere around 10 of them. And we are getting shuttles old united runs. And have bought between 6-10 more saab 340's

All the 50 seat RJ operators are trying to get into the 70-90+ seat market, because with oil prices doing what they are doing, there will be a lot of small RJs moth-balled in the coming years.

Colgan, on the other hand, is putting every SF340 in the air they profitably can. There are a lot of routes that can't support a jet that you can make a decent profit with a 30-34 seat prop. Colgan wants them all.

Like BSkin said - quick upgrade, get your PIC time, get a better gig. Not a bad place if you stay below the radar and keep your guard up.

Todays' flavor was Cherry, yummy! You forgot to mention that 50 seat contract was written on a roll of TP with disappearing ink.

Thanks for the laugh chper now back to those solarcaine treatments with the Swedish Massuse

That was in poor taste dude, even for this message board. Two fellow pilots lost their lives in that accident.

I don't know anything about 50 seaters, but we got some rowdy FA's. Anyone ever hear this when they check in for their show time:?

"I woke up naked on my front lawn this morning with my hair smoothered in vomit"

"kid rock is hot"

"he drove the saab from the terminal to the hanger and just left it there"

"he's real senior"

....."he's real senior"....you know, who the hell cares? I swear people see this as a status symbol here. I love it when FA's drop this line. This is not the oufit to be real senior. This isn't the show Survivior where the last dude on the island gets a million dollars. You will not get a wide wallet being "real senior" here, you may however, perhaps, develope a wide arsehole. And have the aircraft MEL book memorized.

Anyone ever see a saab driving on one engine while the opposite one is starting at the same time? How did they do that? Out

I don't think that was in poor taste at all. It was a joke in reference to a poor choice of word(s).

Did you know the two pilots you mentioned? I can tell you that both Bskin and I knew them from the day they started flying the line at Colon Air.

Hey d-head, I knew those two pilots well. Flew with both of them. Enjoyed their company. My post had nothing to do with them, just making light of what he had posted. If you have a problem, than pm me.

Oh, to answer the question....Colgan's future is sure to involve yesterdays aircraft. Probably without APU's and perdiem. It may also not involve: crew meals, duty rigs, MX cancellation pay, and virgins.

"he knocked her up"

"she slept with who?"

"it was a 2 on 1 type deal?"

"flithy"

"rape?"

"she seemed to want to sleep with everybody"

Dude, next time you are watching VH1 or one of those E true hollywood story shows, just look closely. I think you can spot it in the one they did on Poison. They talk about how the band would hand pick the "talent" that would come backstage for later on. Well, if you if you look closely you may be able to spot some dude with a shirt that said "COLGAN HR" and holding a bunch of applications. I swear.

You can on occasion spot that same t shirt on that station that used to be TNN. You know, it had nascar and bullriding. Look in the audience for a shirt that had "COLGAN HR" written on it. Usually standing next to the dude with the copenhagen t-shirt and sporting the #3 hat.

The more I see this post, the more I want to throttle you! You have no idea what I went threw that day, granted nothing near what Scott, Steve, and their families went through, and are still going through. I flew the aft. out of HYA and was in there less than 30 min. after it happened. Do you know who Jessica is? I doubt it. Sweetest girl, always bubbly, runs on my plane, closes the door, and proceeds to tell us what went on and breaks down. Meanwhile, I have half a dozen messages on my cell phone, from my wife, friends, and folks, wondering if I'm ok.

So you can put your year ago in a piper head up your a$$ and enjoy your time at colon air

That was a horrible day... I was the one who wrote the thing up on Friday that sent in into the shop for the weekend.

Almost 2 years now.... It's going to be a drunk night in a few weeks.

I never met Scott or Steve before my time with Colgan, but I can empathize with your sorrow. I lost way too many friends in military flying accidents. Hopefully, they can rest knowing that they won't be forgotten by the loved ones and friends left behind.
