Hello,
yes my start date has been delayed UFN due to the Max grounding they said.
I am Type rated and was in the pool since a year almost.

It looks like we have to wait more and more...
But what I have heard, they are a lot of pilots resigning each month...
So at a point, they have to hire some pilots !

Everything is on hold right now, upgrades has been cancelled, new joiners as well... We have 14 MAX grounded, it means lots of pilots at home.

Major U.S. carriers extended MAX grounding up to August, the novel seens to have a long road ahead...

Don t expect anything before august...

Resignations are 'd say on average for the last 12-18 mnths. Nothing moving that much. May will see a small batch of cadets join (they need 6-9 months of training remember) and thats it untill further notice. No DEC's, no upgrades. Purely due to MAX grounding. Once we have those frames back and the company knows an approved timeline things will move up 2 gears. Remember, around 14 frames on the ground (25% of the fleet) and another 6 or so to be delivered this year. Well that was the original plan...

Now we are overcrewed, voluntary leave and low monthly hours. But that can quickly change. Are Naples and Budapest still starting in June? I know of at least one other unnanounced new destinations with a few more possibilities. It all depends on the MAX grounding.

What do you mean by Cadets ? Second officers ?

So there is still some pilots who are joining the company in May ?

Thank you

Yes, second officers. They must have joined in March or April but I'm not sure. The number is low too. They have a looooong training time so this is a long game decision. A DEC on NTR guy/girl take no more than 3 months from joining to being fully released. A second officer/cadet takes 9 months and sometimes up to a year or longer. Their programme is different you see. Back a while ago I knew some SO's were doing maybe 1 flight per month, sometimes 2. And they need to do 106 sectors/265 hours to complete the programme. Factor in the now required mandatory GCAA ATPL theoretical study/exams it all takes time.
