So, Air Wisconsin now recruiting ? Can't tell from their careers page but found this one which listed a time as "6 hours ago" and "...sign-on bonuses up to $5,000..." and "...Must have an ATP or be qualified to obtain an ATP or Restricted ATP...":

Z,

Are the people getting hired coming from some pre-COVID pool or fresh meat ?

Expressjet redux. Not sure what it means for pilot hiring. They'll need a few I assume:

"According to ExpressJet, the goal is to start operations using a fleet of Embraer ERJ-145s to operate on underserved communities across the United States."

"While a route map has not yet been announced...will start in June 2021."

This Skywest ad appeared today. Not sure if it's new or recycled as there's no date on it:

Speculation time:

It appears the regionals are starting to hire again. Once this COVID thing gets turned around, what will the pilot supply for regionals be...short like before...or still plenty of refugees from the three defunct regionals available to meet the need ? It's hard to know how many of these folks have either found a spot elsewhere or left the profession completely.

And how about the supply of the people who were working toward their 1500 hours CFIing, etc., on their way to a regional ? Any change in those numbers ? Have new entrants to the profession been scared away by the mess of the last year or so ?

Some Regionals who say they are "hiring" have merely resumed new hire classes. Commutair and Gojet are the only ones I know who have people in class right now that didn't have a CJO from last year. A few others are also doing classes for cadet programs that they run.

Skywest have 600 CJOs to get through before an off the street hire gets a class.

Most regionals also don't seem to be interested in taking people who don't either have an ATP or have not completed ATP-CTP already. This only applies to non cadets and no CJO people.

Remember the 100 people that Frontier was saying they were hiring in January? They only just started Interviews for that 5 months later.

I also just looked on the Envoy website. No pilot jobs listed in careers section.

Yes, I don't doubt what you've listed. There are lots of loose ends to be tied up from this mess. My question is more about what happens to regional supply after the dust settles from all the interim processes you've described. It'll take a crystal ball hence the use of "speculation" in my question.

I looked at the FAA data for student pilot certificates issued as a loose measure of how many people might be contemplating entering the profession. Unfortunately, data for 2019 is the latest they list.

When the dust settles do you mean when international travel returns? Because until then we won't get back to 2019 levels. I don't think there will be any shortfall of 1500 hour peeps to feed the regional machine for at least 24 months.

Flight schools in my area had a drop in students from March to July 2020 but have been back at normal levels since. That in my opinion has given supply a chance to "catch up" with demand so to speak.

I don't buy the pilot shortage apocalypse some people are predicting. Sounds like flight school marketing to me!

I don't have any specific timeline in mind...I'm just spitballing the topic. I also don't put much faith in the notion of a pilot shortage although the regionals did appear to be scrambling a bit for fresh meat pre-covid. Just curious if that circumstance will return when the world rights itself. Who knows...I sure don't.
