Default Base Seniority

Everyone is always asking how long it would take to hold XYZ Base. I thought I would help sort through the data. I compiled the numbers of pilots in each base along with the most senior and junior in each position in each base. This is the July 2019 numbers.

Keep in mind a couple of things.
- Because of the seasonal nature of flying here, the seniority fluctuates a decent amounts in certain months. I will try to update this seasonally so that you can see the trends.

- VBDs and TDYs are included in the current bases that they are bidding. I did not break them out separately.

Interesting but as you noted the TDYís arenít included. This time of year, IWA has a lot of TDYs from the bottom, so the actually junior FO is not 5/16.

Are you able to post how many vacancies were not filled for each base during the last vacancy bid?

I am not sure how useful it would be since the company will change those vacancies before anyone would be hired anyway. Iíll just say that there is basically an entire class worth of openings in SAV and GRR. FLL and PIE also look like likely candidates for new hires. Other bases with 1 or more unfilled openings are AVL BLI TYS and VPS

Thank you so much for posting this. As mentioned already I would expect things to change slightly from now till someone actually finishes training, and also the seasonal changes.
