Republic's latest offering. I guess this is in addition to the academy they recently announced ?:

“Republic Airline has partnered with ATP Flight School in its Tuition Reimbursement Program to contribute financial support for pilots in flight training. This program provides professional development and career progression for pilots, setting the course to gain the necessary experience to fly for the airline.”

“Pilots enrolled in the program will receive up to $11,000 in tuition reimbursement payments and up to $6,500 in bonus compensation.”

And GoJet works a deal...of sorts:

“Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. today said that its Atlas Air, Inc. unit and GoJet Airlines have entered an agreement guaranteeing GoJet pilots an interview with Atlas after as little as one to two years of service.”

That's kind of funny - if you have prior military flying experience you can get an interview after a year. The vast majority of guys with prior military time will have moved on, and most likely not to Atlas, before that year is up.

misd-,

They certainly have a good chance of doing that (maybe even better than average) but it's apparently far from guaranteed. There's no way to understand what goes on in the heads of the HR people (including the ones with a license and medical in their pocket).

Many good candidates will ultimately get left behind at places they'll consider a consolation prize.

Apparently Commutair is sending around this announcement:


https://forums.jetcareers.com/threads/this-arrived-in-the-mail-today.262174/#lg=attachment44012&slide=0

And this. Not so much about management changes but this statement:


Through 2019, CommutAir will triple in size to an all-jet fleet of up to 61 aircraft and actively hire in all areas.”

Republic Airways launches first ab initio pilot class:

“Over 600 applications were received for the first class.”

"...total tuition for the flight academy is $65,000, which is lower than most other aviation training schools in the U.S."

Yet another regional plays the "Working for us isn't all that great, and we don't plan on fixing that, but if you work for us for a while you might get a good job" card.

I get the feel from the Regions Airline Association publication that they want to repeal the 1500 hour rule.

I find this funny because before the 1500 hour rule regional pilots qualified for food stamps. Only now do they get paid even close to what they deserve.

If they overturn the 1500 hour rule cockpits around the country will fill with 250 fresh CPL grads willing to work for nothing to get to a major.

ALPA just sent out an email saying they had a win on this front in that the rule isnít going to be changed, it has at least another 5 year stay of execution

The ALPA may have a win on that front, BUT Congress (US parliament), will have the final say, if there's going to be any rule change.

The House and Senate passed the FAA Reauthorization bill and Trump signed it October 6. It is a 5 year plan for the FAA that makes no mention of changing the ATP CTP program or the "1500 hour" rule (121.436). ALPA sent out the email when Trump signed it, thus their "win."
