CA1900 said:No, actually. We've been 900/100 for quite some time, and that's the lowest we've ever gone.
NYCPilot said:Well the guy is 800/250 - not far off, maybe a month or so away. No harm mentioning it as he is quite close to the minimums and he's looking to begin applying.
Also, the guy is asking about low time regionals, at 900/100, I'd say Colgan qualifies. By the way, how's maintenance over there? I heard you guys lose a lot of engines.
CA1900 said:Certainly worth checking into us once he hits the "magic" 900. I think hiring is stalled right now, but I'm sure it'll start again.
At CommutAir? Uhhh, no. I've been here nearly seven years, and don't recall a single engine failure. Preventative maintenance is a big part of our philosophy, and MELs don't linger long here at all. They may be 1900s, but they're some of the best-maintained ones you'll find. Our folks are top-notch mechanics.
So to answer your question, our maintenance is fantastic. Thanks for asking.
My Bad. (I hate when ppl say this, but I think its warranted)
Somehow I had mixed Colgan and Commutair in my mind. Apologies to the MX dept.!
