Yeah, AMF had a small furlough and a few other layoffs. Tough for those involved, but . . . I believe it's the second furlough in the company's 41-year history, and it probably won't last very long. The reason is a simple need to balance currently available crews with the current and and short-term projected level of flying activity.
A couple of Basic Indoc classes were also canceled or delayed, but again -- this is a temporary setback, and the hiring process will likely start grinding along again in a couple of months.
