Engineers? I don't know too much, but I think they are on a good deal and I haven't seen as much turnover as aircrew. Maybe they were all in a union and stuck together during the last negotiation you know, didn't chicken out at the 11th hour.

According to those who strut the hallowed halls: F100s ordered and awaiting delivery or something!!

It beggs the question then, will the deal be as good as Network or will the flow to "greener tailed pastures" continue?

I just got off the phone to my mate in Perth and he said that the Skippers F100 pilots are going to be looked after very well. Looking at 2 frames initially with a 3rd one down the track. Engineers have been trained up apparently ready to rock and roll.

Best of luck to Stan and the team.

A few questions.

Where will they park them?

Who will be the clients given that the clients who have sealed airstrips already are well served by Skywest, Alliance, Network and Cobham?

Will the jets be used on the RPT coastal routes perhaps? YCAR, YSHK, YKBR, YGEL?

You forgot "who will fly them?" No one here with any jet time is there?

I mean it would be a real morale killer if they hired outside crews and didn't give those guys with right stuff a shot at the jet wouldn't it?

"Skippers F100 pilots are going to be looked after very well"

Doesn't that go against company culture?
