For people in the know, what's the story with Shuttle America? Is it worth leaving a Beech 1900 right seat for them? Are they somewhat stable?

Any info would be appreciated.

Shuttle has re emerged from bankruptcy and is transitioning from an independent flying Dash 8 300's to a US Airways Express contract carrier using Saab 340's. We have been told that hiring will remain strong for the next 6 months or so, we are growing from a 3 airplane fleet to at least 16 Saab's, maybe more in the future. Is it worth leaving another job??? who knows? Upgrades are sure to be quick for a while until things calm down. Keep in mind that the deal has not been completed yet and there are zero Saabs on property right now. Planned revenue operations should be starting the first week in January or thereabouts. If you want to know anything else, send an email to my mailbox and I'll try answer any questions you might have in detail.
