I think awac has stopped hiring for now. Did you get smart and not want to come back to PSA? We're hiring 8 a month. Good place to get current

Air Whiskey bought their flying... I'm sure they're willing to let you buy yours.

There is no training contract. If you change equipment say from Saab to Q there's a 1yr seat lock. So, in other words NO WE DON'T BUY FLYING

Is it worse to buy your flying and be paid a slightly better crappy salary, or be so cheap that majors come knocking on your door? I know which one I'd prefer...

Where does "proud" come into play? Just stating the facts. I'm looking to move on ASAP.

Which airline are you talking about? If its 9L, yeah the pay was crappy at ONE POINT. Now its on par with ExpressJet, Eagle, and actually will exceed Horizon because each year there's a pay bump across the board through 2014. (I hope to god im not here until 2014)
PS I'd rather have pay thats right on par with said mentioned airlines above rather than exceed it. Look what happened to Comair, and unfortunately Air Wis isnt that far behind.
