there is a massive amount of attrition here. looks like a lot of f/o's are bailing out; smart move. redneck air oops i mean regions air is a black hole, the more you are in the harder it gets to get out like some of us captains here that are lifers.
get the time and bail out.

Let me tell you about the Saabs. Regex is down to 8 or 9 J32's. If a company can't afford a little jeststream its kind of hard to believe they can afford saabs. S*it they cant even afford to pay for a better hotel in FT. peckerwood. Like shinydiscoballs said get the time and get out.

So, then.. is it a "decent" place to "get the time, and get out" or would it be better to just go somewhere else to begin with?

Rumor is they have to get the SAABs to keep the EAS contract??

The advise is take a header off the bulding before going to Regions! You might have the money to buy a gun before Regions, but after your hired you will never be able to afford the bullets.

Careful, they'll make you sign the evil training contract so that you don't jump ship to CHQ or SKW like everyone else has.

Can someone tell me when Regions took delivery of a Saab?

Is losing airplanes and cities considered rapid growth these days?

Great group of guys there. Used to j/s from STL to CGI regularly and the Corpex guys were great to talk with. Retired CA Buck (when he was active) helped out when the gate agents were a little clueless on who I worked for. Heard he got a corp gig after retirement. Great guy.

Actually, these aircraft are apparently being based at CVG for West Virginia flying. If you call WV the Northeast, then okay. This information is from the mouth's of HR at Regions Air.



Take Care,

Eh, WV is north and east of me.. :) I knew it was in that area of the country.. I guess it's not really the NORTH East..

I hear there is 1 airplane lined up? I also heard rumors about these possibly being based in Cincinatti? What have you heard ArtV?

I have heard that they could be flying for Delta to mountain home in WV. The only point that I wanted to make is that this is not the first time Regions has luered people to them with promises that are not already in place. We all know not to believe anything associated with an airline until we see it. Its not fair for a company to lure low time pilots into a job for an airplane that is not on site yet.

Buck was one of the smartest people I've ever met, and boy did he have some good stories from his Army days! He was very encouraging to me regarding my career aspirations, and definately one of the finest elder statesmen of the profession I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I think he went to FLOPS, but not 100% sure.

I think about 95% of the pilot group has turned over since 3C quit flying to LAF in Feb of 2004!

Just to play Devil's Advocate, what about pilots who don't mind which aircraft they are going to get hired into? I can think of two people I know who are low time pilots and trying to get some time under their belt to open their options. To paraphrase the first post: get your time and get out. Peace!

Good question. I would say alot of it depends on if the company pays differently for each a/c flown. If the company pulls you in with the promise of a saab paycheck and all you ever have the opportunity to see is a jetstream 32 paycheck then it is still wrong. I don't think that anyone has ever gone to Regions to get rich, but at some point professional pilots must say NO to unreasonable wages and lies. That applies to every company,not just Regions.
