Just curious as to what regionals are currently hiring, which ones have canceled classes and are just stagnant, and which ones have and/or will furlough pilots. Also, if you guys know the specifics on numbers and when the furloughs or hiring will pick up again. Thanks

Mesaba has suspended hiring, new hire classes halted, 13 on furlough, more furloughs to come this week.

Pinnacle has stopped hiring and may be furloughing (not sure, just from what I heard from a friend there). They certainly won't be adding pilots anytime soon either.

Comair not hiring, most likely furloughing soon, may be liquidating if worst case scenario comes true.

That's all I know.

What?
Piedmont is hiring somewhere around 600 and 100 multi., AE is hiring at 1000-100. Both are running classes through the end of the year from what I've been told by HR people at both airlines.

chq still hiring

I think hiring has been halted on the 145

170 hiring is slowing down as well due to SAAB/MDA integration (no flames pls)...

Seems like CHQ, Skywest, XJET is about the best thing avail if peeps want 121 jet PIC within 2-3 years.

This is starting to resemble that game where you have so long to put the shaped pegs in their spots and then when time runs out bang!!! The board pops and you have to start all over and try to get everything back together again.
If you guys work really hard maybe you can get hired flying 100+ seat aircraft for what the regionals once got paid to fly 50's.

These are the good ole days!

I know more than a few guys that have been floating in the CHQ pool for almost 3 months.
