About a month ago I spoke with a buddy of mine over there and he said they washed a couple guys out of Fokker-ATR transition training and actually furloughed a couple more. Doesn't sound like there is any hiring going on. I don't know about the 135 side though.

do yourself a favor and don't go unless you plan to be there at least a year and a half to get out of your training contract. they are a pretty bad operation, don't write anything up in the mx can either. could get you fired.

Anyone have any current news on these guys? Are they hiring?

Not much news. We are tightening the belt. We did just furlough some guys and closed a 121 base. I have not heard about the 135 side hiring. No news about us getting any more airplanes to change the hiring status.

How's that skateboard injury healing up, as such?

Brutal. Its amazing how much you actually use your hands, seriously. So you're pretty screwed when you not only bust both of your arms, but crack your wrists and ribs too. I even broke my nipple. I hit so hard that one of my nipples got damaged and it feels like hard cottage cheese.
My left arm is about 90% but since I'm right handed, its taking a while longer for that one to heal. I'm just now getting to where I can turn on a faucet or open the fridge without wicked pain. I will be so glad when I dont have to do the eye of the tiger thing to physic myself up so I can wipe my but or tie my shoes. The worst part is that it was a HUGE wake up call that I'm too old and fat to be skateboarding. I'm all paranoid about getting hurt now too. Sucks, but at least I can't find a job. Thank goodness for distilled spirits. And oh ya, no Handgella either.
