Republic/Skywest proposals (article)

https://www.flightglobal.com/safety/...149331.article
much of this has been covered but this article adds a summary of these two regional carriers plans to deal with the shortage. I worked at Skywest years ago when they operated the Brasilia under part 135. Skywest used this to build horrendous pilot schedules at the time. I donít think turning to charter operations is the solution.

I don't know all the ins and outs of the US market but wouldn't an airline identifying as a part 135 charter company be the same as a man identifying as a woman so he can use the ladies toilets

work permit

Hi,

I'm a german citizen and fully FAA qualified ATP with a couple thousand hours lacking a work permit for the US,
Tried the greencard lottery several years with no luck.

What is the quickest way - and hopefully still affordable - to obtain a greencard?

Any advice appreciated, thank you.

Unfortunately it is paywalled, but the title already says the most important thing:

Blimey…where the US leads, others will follow I imagine. Didn’t think I’d see this in my career.

Interesting...effective Oct. 21, 2022...changes to PIC criteria for FAA ATP...for some types of flying. Kind of long article but you'll get the idea:


"This final rule provides additional crediting options for certain pilot in command (PIC) time to count towards the 1,000 hours of air carrier experience required to serve as a PIC in air carrier operations. In addition, this final rule allows credit for select military time in a powered-lift flown in horizontal flight towards the 250 hours of airplane time as PIC, or second in command (SIC) performing the duties of PIC, required for an airline transport pilot (ATP) certificate. This action is necessary to expand opportunities for pilots that meet the amended criteria to use relevant flight experience toward the requirements for an ATP certificate and to meet PIC qualification requirements for air carrier operations."

A bit of a thread drift ... but it might affect the shortage.

Any signs showing up on the horizon that indicate that activity could be spooling down in the near future, recession and so on, or is it still going strong ?

It seems that Fedex is parking aircraft due to a $500 Million revenew shortfall. "Macroeconomic weakness in Asia and service challenges in Europe"

No one knows for sure. But lots of opinions, I'm sure.

US produces lots of pilots yearly, but many of them are foreign pilots seeking for training abroad and the returning to their home country. also you can check 30k private pilots but airlines need the full 1500h and thats not an easy job.
