F9,

Understand. But these days managements have the upper hand and will certainly use it. But nothing lasts forever...

We started working for this company with good intentions but our hands were always tied behind our backs.
Hi F9320, tried to send u a PM but seems your inbox is full. If you can kindly make some space and then PM me, appreciate it.

Also, anyone else who has some info about Airbahn? Thanks.

Hiring pilots is the last piece of the puzzle so there's no hurry. And the supply of pilots is endless...even before the virus added hordes to the supply. There are enough who will take any amount of abuse and neglect...and still be ready and willing when the employer decides to hire.

Hillwood Airways is a charter company owned by Ross Perot Jr. They recently fired a pilot (for his involvement in storming the US Capitol building), so they probably had a position open up.

Yes, I see now that Avelo is being built on the skeletal remains of XTRA. IIRC, XTRA had one 737 to keep the certificate alive ? Their jobs site mentions hiring F/As but not pilots. If they had only one airplane, they can't have had many pilots.

Xtra was hiring pilots back in December. Their hiring window was open for a very short time but while I was furloughed, I put in an app. They contacted me with 48 hours for more info but they sent out a lot of TBNT letters the following week. After everyone got recalled with Cares 2.0, many 737 rated guys who got TBNT letters got contacted again asking if they were still interested. They plan on growing quick this year.

Appears to be official for Breeze now:

"Breeze Airways, a new Utah-based airline from JetBlue founder David Neeleman, received final approval Wednesday from the U.S. Department of Transportation to commence operations."

This ad from Breeze popped up this AM. Note type rating listed as "minimum" qualification. I guess they can be fussy these days:

Minimum Qualifications

• E170/190 Type Rating

So here's a Q400 start-up, Connect Airlines, by a US-based company planning to operate into Canada (could go in the Canada forum but I put it here since the parent company is US although the pedigree is a mix mixed):

"Connect Airlines would be the second company formed by John Thomas, an Australian who as already created a business jet firm in the United States called Waltzing Matilda Aviation. Waltzing Matilda is based in Boston and uses Cessna Citations for clients. John Thomas believes that the market is right for a new Canadian firm that can contest business routes between Canada’s Billy Bishop Airport in Toronto and the northeastern and midwestern United States."

And here's the pilot hiring ad:

“Airline Transport Pilot Certificate Multi-Engine Land (Transport Canada or FAA)”

I keep seeing posts on LinkedIn about Airbahn and pilots going through new hire course as we speak.

havick,


Haven't seen much from Airbahn lately but I'm not on LinkedIn or Facebook.

I did see this ad from Avelo pop up last night. I don't know if this is an old ad being recycled or something new. The F/O requirements are interesting. I assume they'll get much more than this from applicants ?:

First Officer

Eligible for an unrestricted ATP Multi-Engine Land

Completed ATP-CTP course, 14 CFR §61.156

• B737 Type Rating, preferred

1,500 TT

• 500 PIC

• 500 MEL

• Meets 14 CFR §121.436(a)(3)

The airbahn posts I’ve seen on LinkedIn are all front director of ops or the CP, mostly showing management type pilots going through what looks like initial CADRE.

That being said it all could be a little glitter to entice more investors as being a little closer to operating? At least Breeze has actually aircraft etc whereas Airbahn doesn’t really seem to have any infrastructure?
