Anyone know if Miami Air is doing any hiring recently?? Thanks
Actually, it looks like Miami Air has become the de facto training grounds for JB and Atlas... Have a pulse? Get a B737 type, get some international experience and get a job with a National or a Major. Of course if you leave in less than 3 years you'll owe them the balance of the training contract but that might be well worth the investment.
No word. They hired 22 in 2013, but also lost 13 total. Expectations are that they'll have to hire, but mgmt keeps that close to the vest until just before they advertise.Any word on any upcoming hiring/interviews?
As stated in the post above, the last class started in Sep 2013. There were 6 classes in 2013. No class has started this year (2014.)I was told a class just went thru since the beginning of the year?
Plan to live in South Florida. There are only about 6 or so of the 70'ish pilots that commute from anywhere beyond south / central / southwest FL. 12 days free of duty per month, with many lines having 10 of those in a single block. No trip longer than 7 days unless you volunteer for it. Frequent days off in MIA between trips along with reserve at home equal extra days with family - unless you commute. As for commuting, you can't think of it in the traditional airline sense, i.e. jumpseating home for a couple days between trips. You cannot do that here. You are always on at least 11 hour call out between trips, unless you're on one of your 12 days free of duty. So jumpseating home for a day or two is out of the question. They will emphasis this at the interview. Pay is low. Don't expect to exceed guarantee much, if ever.Also, what's the QOL like?
No. Well, if you're referring to the previous "deployments" to Europe or Alaska, no, neither in '13 nor in '14.Still overseas work during summer, etc?
Probably, I was just relaying what was said at the job fair. I think he was saying the Europe thing to make the job more attractive but the room was full of 121 regional guys who freak out over anything longer than a 4 day trip.Very unlikely. Nothing has been announced to the company yet.
