Also, the "flow", don't rely on it. One economic downturn, you will be flowing for 10 years. There are some guys (without degrees) who have been hired through the United CPP program, however, it's contingent upon completion of their bachelors.

There's a lot of movement here in Air Wisconsin. You can reach captain upon reaching 1000 hrs SIC. Also, they are lacking CPT and Sim instructors, another pad on your resume if you so desire.

If you need to make more money, we have a lot of open time. There's an FO in Columbia that tries to fly whatever he can legally. He will hit 100k for this year w/o the bonuses.
If the flow is stopped itís because the whole industry has stopped hiring most likely. An economic downturn is bad for everyone industry-wide and people will be stuck where theyíre at for a while. But I agree, a new hire today should only really consider the flow as a tool that generates constant movement off the top of the seniority list. Not as a way to get a legacy job...

I say go to wherever youíll be happy. If youíre from CAE and want to live in base? AWAC is a good fit for you. If you live in the Northern VA, DCA or ORF area and donít want to commute, then PSA would be a good choice.
During my time, except a year I had to commute and commuting sucks. Itís aggravating and stressful. Itís no fun getting bumped off jumpseats or being sandwiched between two fat people in a middle seat oozing into your personal space. Plus commuting you have to come in the day before sometimes or canít get home that day when youíre finished.
Plus, commuting you deal with delays, cancellations, weather and perpetually full flights.
Take a foolís advice and if you value youíre sanity, donít commute.
