Unless you want to be based in PDX, the new Gig Harbor of the universe, I can't think of a single reason why anyone would want to work for AS, except that this may be your last stop. QOL, $$$, and retirement are what matter, which puzzle palace will never willingly offer. I suppose you can always hold out for Hell to freeze over.


Santa clause isn't real!!?? [emoji17]

But... we won JDP 10 years in a row. Why do you need pay and QOL when we have a trophy.

It's not a story, it's fact. Where's the growth/movement with VX/as?

AS will conduct two new hire pilot classes per month beginning July 17 continuing through the remainder of the year. I believe the next opportunity to meet with the recruiting team will be at Oshkosh in July followed by OBAP in early August and a FAPA.aero event in late August. Best of luck everyone!
