Guys:

For those that know any of the guys at COP at IAH, they just layed off 4 pilots in Houston, several line staffers, Safety specialist(s), dispatcher, and some FA(s)... Do not know the exact numbers for a total, but more is one the way, from what I am hearing...

Good luck all... Lend a hand if you have any openings or know of something for any of these guys... Pass it along... I know that there are a lot of people out there looking...

How many were EMB drivers? That's the only "network" I have at the moment.


well, one flew it part time, but was IAH based on the G550/450. That thing is being moved and cut too... More to come...

Who is next? Air Force One's pilots?

They had four G's lined up wingtip to wingtip at IAD a few weeks ago and I was pondering what a great job that must be, even if it's in Houston. ;)

I was laid off from my G job Monday AM and was hoping that I was on the tail end of the madness. If CP has to downsize nobody is safe.

Misery loves company.:smash:

That sucks! More unemployed pilots in HOUSTON. How the h-ell am I ever going to be able to get a job here now?

I haven't flown in a long time.

4 pilots, 4 f/a's from what I heard. Pretty much parking one plane. Well keeping it in the rotation but operating with one less.

Anyone know anything about WMI, APA, or APC across the 15's?

Sucks though. Best of luck to everyone out there.

I just spoke to one of the APC guys yesterday and know their director very well. They are good. As long as oil stays at or above 40.00, they are good. He said they are lean anyway... Three airplanes and six pilots...

Your news on COP is correct, but several more people... Maintenance guys, line guys, safety guys and scheduler...

Also heard phasing out the PNC shuttle. So no more triangle just BTV to IAH. Not sure about time frame for that.

Glad to hear APC guys are ok for the time being though. Are they still flying Joe Jamail's G?
