New Management at ATR are going to have to ply catch up ball in order to remain in the game, or otherwise.... well you get the picture. There are a lot of great people at MAC and deserve better than what RN delivered.
I keep hear IFL will get ATRs. Is this confirmed? Are they even going to be able to staff them? No one wants to fly short hops in turbo props except for guys like me. I donít think moving planes from one place to another will attract pilots. Doesnít make sense. MAC will have to improve and it will take time.
