Try www.usairways.com. However, you have to get hired in 1987, get furloughed a couple of times then be recalled into MidAtlantic.

Technically, the airline doesn't exist in the FAAs mind. The 170s are on the USAir certificate. MidAtlantic was created as a C-Scale.

There is no such airline, it is a division of USAirways. Currently the aircraft are being sold to Republic airlines (aka ChQ airlines)


Anyway, they are not hiring, all staffing to this point is done by furloughed U pilots or W/O pilots (PDT,ALG,PSA)

Been hearing the transaction was, or will be cancelled. Any truth to this?

According to USAviation.com the deal was completed today. :(

"We have been advised by Captain Lyle Hogg that the sell transaction between Republic and MDA is complete. Classes at Republic to resume on September 27. He states that a new pref. sheet will be sent out shortly. This just posted in Sabre Crew Trac."

Good luck to the fine people at MDA. They have been tossed around, used, and discarded time and again -- pawns in some kind of management chess game. They deserve much, much better.

What are they bitching about, won't they be more stable at Republic? They will still have their USAir seniority number and can go to USAir when recalled. Sounds like a win-win to me.

Republic is just as stable as Mesa. In fact, those two have a lot of similarities.

I was hoping that deal would be off. Hope everything works out for the MDA folks.

I can't wait to fly with former ALG and PDT guys!

After having worked on both sides of the playground, I feel entirely qualified to say that I'm sure both parties would learn something.

Will all MDA people go to CHQ? Will they start as newhires? I have a friend who passed another job to stay at MDA. Sounds like a mistake. Good luck to all.TC

Especially contract issues when CHQ's CBA is up. ALG and PDT people would be good in that role.

Very true. However, the nature of the pilot group at present day(and probably future) CHQ is different than the nature of the groups at PDT and ALG back in the 90's. And would the existing CHQ pilot group allow a couple of washed up wholly-owned pilots any say in such matters?

no, i belive NONE of them will go, and they'll tell rep/chq/wex to 'f' themselves like last time when none of them (except the cp and one other guy) ditched the training class

My guess is 60 % will go. Time will tell.
