Not as many as in the recent past. Company says official its around what it was in 2005, but once we get the bankruptcy payout expect it to peg out at full max out-flow.

I know many how are waiting then leaving ASAP.

The company won't be able to train newhires fast enough, that is of course if they can recruit people.

FYI payout should be happening within the next few days.

When I joined in mid-2005, they were saying it was 7/month. Last I heard it is still higher than that, about 15/month. I bet after the payout it'll go to 30+ again.

Attrition can't be as bad as MESA. we are loosing 120 pliots onthe average a month, they are going toi JB, and saddly other regionals. There is a class action thing going on over ther about lsack of payment. (Let them deal with that.)

What are the hiring minimums for Comair?
Body temp around 98 deg. and a pulse between 1 and 100 bpm and able to identify an airplane in a picture of an airport.

But, this seems to be the min's everywhere.

Wow...back in the summer of 2002, Comair was the HOTTEST place to be. I knew a guy who had 3,000 hours with F-18 time, and he couldn't get an interview at Comair. Tells a lot about how quickly this industry can change.

12/02. Newest upgrade classes were delayed 3 months, due to a decrease in attrition/sick calls and "sim issues." Last I heard, attrition was down to 11/month. On average, we lost 35/month all last year. I would expect attrition to spike in the months after the bankruptcy claim awards hit our 401k's.

This "2nd year FO" is getting significantly less than that despite the fact that I took a pay cut almost twice as much as you and can't bid out of the CR7 for a decent schedule.

I jsut finished 2 years here and am taking in 16,500ish. Why can't you bid out of the 700?

How long did he fly that thing for? I know a guy who has been flying F-18's in the Marines for the last 9 years, and only has 800 hours in them. Regardless, he's going to UPS with 1,100TT.

I've been there since December, getting $11,433.

Lots of guys are saying they're getting thier payout, and walking with no 2 weeks notice.
