It's an easy way to say they want TSA, Compass, and XJT folks. They were already on that path back in the first days of the virus. And look how many Commair alums are at AWAC for a historical basis.

Good luck luring in the compass, TSA, XJT guys with that first year pay rate. Especially with places like endeavor hiring...
They'll eventually have to accept guys without the ATP written completed.

I think it shows we're really not looking to hire very many people. Need to "contain costs"

Compass, TSA, and XJT combined put thousands of highly experienced pilots on the street, and Endeavor, Atlas, etc can only hire so many. There will be plenty of high time pilots to weed through before having to go after low time pilots. Iíd suspect that those people arenít as concerned about the first year pay as they are setting themselves up for a repeat of their first shutdown. In a world where scope is maxed out, going to a company that only flies aging 145ís or 200ís is a gamble. Of course, turning down a job in this market is too.

Good to see the options are continuing to expand, though. There are still a lot of Compass, TSH, and XJT peeps that are running out of unemployment. Even though Air Wisconsin might not be there new home, it should spark others to restart hiring or risk losing out on theses experienced crews that will be Captain eligible before long.

These are businesses where the goal is to make money. No one is going to "restart hiring" earlier than necessary if there isn't a need for it. The fact that you think if AW starts hiring/training is going to force others to fire up their training departments is laughable.

If anything it could seem like ZW is the one to restart hiring because others are. Commutair, PSA and Endeavor among others already started before them. Oh yea and as mentioned earlier theyíre paying for ATP-CTP unlike ZW
