Hello,
I hope that it works out well for the current pilots and staff at "Race City". I worked there last year for a few months and I have only fond memories of my time there. With the exception of a couple of pilots I think that everyone that I worked with has moved on. Best of luck to all you guys and gals!

Regards,

ex-Navy Rotorhead

There are rumors about Tyson's departure. I've heard several storys. I'll wait 'till it comes from the Wolf's mouth.

As for those of us on the line, it's not that great. The pay cuts are comming in the form of $25 per week less, We loose the company phones (are now 'required' to have phones, but there is no kicker to help pay for them), and there is a new state of disorganization as no one at Ram is really used to running two different operations.
For those of us with some seniority, no seems to be a good time to depart...

I left Package right before Ram Air bought out Package but the things I hear are not so good. Seems like most of the guys are not real happy about the change. Especially with the pay change and the loss of $500 dollars at one year with the bonus. Instead of $1500 it will be $1000.

Hello,
I think that Tyson is heading to fly the big iron for PACE.

Wow! Good for Tyson. I am also a former 'Race City' guy. Good outfit when I was there, with above average pay. But I guess the Check 21 thing has narrowed the playing field.

It is true. Tyson has accepted a position at Pace, B757 out of ORD for 6 months and England for 6.

Glad Bill is doing alright. I used to fly for him back when it was Corporate Air Fleet.

Is he still working the tower at CLT and flying for Ultra Motorsports?
