Does anyone out there have an idea of the percentage total of pilots whom are unemployed?

Just wondering?

I'd say pretty much everybody is chopping 20%, which I am a part of...

Airbus;

Thanks for the information. I gives a pretty clear picture of the affect 9-11 has had on our industry.

I am very optimistic! I believe that by the summer of 2002 many of the pilots out of work will be hired again; For sure by the Fall of 2002!

Skywalker, Sorry to hear you are also furloughed. The good news is that Mesaba cancelled it's Dec. 1 furloughs - total of 54 currently furloughed at Mesaba. Express One has recalled many pilots, I THINK they have recalled everyone who had gotten through training before being recalled.

At Eagle they cancelled the 100 more furloughs for December but are currently looking at 50 more in January...
