I recieved this in my email today and thought I would pass it along to my fellow pilots. The website it came from is wasinc.net It seems to be a pilot recruitment company like Parc Aviation or Hawaii Aviation.

*Contract Term: First contract: 2 years. Subsequent contracts: 1 year

*30 days personal leave per year

Sounds like an absolute dream. TWO YEARS in China and away from the U.S. with seven leg days. I must assume that the personal days are unpaid and there is no mention of vacation (paid or non-paid) but the email I received mentioned eating for approximately $1.50 a meal & inexpensive clothing at C. $7.00. I might also have to assume that your F/O will be from China...but I may be wrong-you think?

The only thing worse than flying for Mesa is flying for Mesa in a hostile communist environment where we don't speak the language.

I'd like to have 1/100th of the optimism of anyone signing up for this debacle.

Sounds like a good deal for a single guy.

Having flown in China on and off for the last 20 years I'd say go for it.
Good food, good drinks, cute girls and tax free money.

It's 9 days off a month. 9 DAYS OFF.

It's Mesa. Ask anyone at Mesa if they like their job or enjoy flying anymore.

While I agree that this job would have some potential for fun if it was run by anyone else, the hostile/anti-pilot environment at Mesa is going to make this a sweatshop. At the very least, anyone interested should go stop by the airport and talk with some Mesa crews about this.

There is a post about this on the foreign airline board where a Mesa pilot says he saw the planes being prepped to be sent and that they are the most clapped out POS's in Mesa's inventory--25,000+ cycles.

It hadn't occurred to me, but I really am not surprised.
