Any latest on how the CPP is working out at Air Wisconsin?

Has anyone heard anything about AW Hogan pass rates, interview pass rates, and pool size? Is the AW CPP percentage known?

Talked do a guy who finished the interview and the word is 5% of UAL classes will be ZW. I'm sure they will adjust it to suit their needs. They are also waiting until we have a full quarter of exclusive UAL flying so we are eligible in July. Now, if UAL will run a class or two we could give you actual numbers.

Hogan rates anecdotally seem to be about industry average.

5%???? 1/20????? 30 twice per month classes equates to 36 in a fantasy world. Run the numbers and see how long it will take from new hire to class date through CPP.

I thought our percentage would be higher than Commutair solely based on our pilot group being roughly twice the size.

All of this is contingent on UA running classes with any regularity, and ATW letting the pilots in the CPP go when we clearly canít keep our own airline staffed.

Maybe it will be better when we become a wholly owned, thatís the ďbestĒ latest rumor.

I hear we are skipping the wholly owned stage of evolution and we will be given numbers at united beginning 3rd qt of next year. It will be similar to a SLI situation where if opted in we will be given an employee number slot, 3 new hires 1 AWAC slot. They are working on 200 rates in a mid cycle contract negotiation sit downs.

It finally starting to look promising for us, just hang in there a little longer.... by the way we have an extension for you, please call scheduling.

UAL FA's have some sort of clause in their agreement that prevents United from owning any other carrier unless it's staffed by their FAs.

So, you can put that rumor to bed.

They can still purchase another airline, all you have to do is work out a deal with the FA union which usually involves money... UAL managment is not worried about that clause at the moment because that can easily be settled. A FA clause will not stand in the way of something that can be a significant benefit to United whether its a buyout of another airline or whatever it may be.. So, dont let some clause that you hear make you actually think something wont be done.... Money always settles things, you will be surprised how cool money is LOL

Maybe so,but give us ONE good reason United would want to buy awac ?? Why would they need to?
To own a load of old,worn out 200's? For the pilots? United has more apps on file than they can sift through, so whats the point?
Dosent make any sense as to why they would even consider it.
The current awac is not the awac of 10,20 or 30 years ago.Things have changed. So please enlighten us with your rational and reasoning.

HUH??!! Maybe you need to go back and read my statement CAREFULLY.. not once did I mention UAL will buy AWAC.. All i did was respond to the "clause" in the FA contract about purchasing another "airline" LOL Pretty simple if UAL wants to make an investment and buy another airline whoever it may be to benefit their bottomline they really don't need to be worried about that "clause" in the FA contract because money will take care of that.... I don't know how that statement about the FA clause makes you think all the sudden United wants to buy AWAC

Keeps bragging? Where was I bragging about my pay? The flow was being bashed as being a fraud or a smoke screen. All I said was 3rd year pay at mainline doesn't have me complaining about the flow.

I'm on 3rd pay and making over 150 dollars an hour to basically fly an RJ at group 2 pay. It's all gravy to me. Plus I'm flying with a few TWA guys making Group 2 Captain pay on the same RJ.

I will agree that I think American should take over the hiring process from the WO's. However I don't think the HR department could handle it. They can barely keep up with hiring of Non-Flows as it is. Remember in 10 years half the seniority list at American will be out the door. Anyone hired today will probably see Group 2 Capt. in 7-8 years. Enjoy.

People failed the interview.

People will inevitably not make it past the ďfinal review boardĒ



We donít know what percentage of class makeup we will be, and no one has been selected for groundschool at UA. Hopefully by this summer staffing will stabilize (haha) and we will be over staffed just enough to let people go if UA is running classes.

Even if you made it past the interview there are still lots of unanswered questions. Hopefully this summer/fall we will see how this CPP works for us.

Do you put vodka or gin in your koolaid? The CPP is a joke. They already said no one will go to UAL until 3rd/4th quarter 2018. It will likely be 2 per class. Do the math on that. Just like we still don't have people upgrading in 18-24 months which was advertised about 18 months ago...

I dont know what the interview board is looking for in a CPP candidate.

A mentee that I am mentoring passed his Hogan Assesment but did not pass the interview with United CPP. It was not with Air Wisconsin. This was with Lufthansa Training Center. So now to reapply for a CPP he has to wait 1 year from letter. He is now looking at regionals and I dont know if he can apply for the CPP at a later date once he is hire into a regional with United CPP program. Or has to apply for it right away when he applies for Air Wisconsin or Commute Air. Is he given only one shot at the beginning of employment because that would unqualify him. He was turned down this past week. Or can he after 1 year of employment with Air Wisconsin reapply for the CPP. Does any one know?

Any feedback, appreciated.

That's another question: how many are passing Hogan and Failing interview, etc..... Any info word of mouth?

Piedmont has a new CP in PHL, the one that came from AWAC is no longer going to be dealing with pilots. Theyíre moving on to do something else at the company.

I dont know what the interview board is looking for in a CPP candidate.

A mentee that I am mentoring passed his Hogan Assesment but did not pass the interview with United CPP. It was not with Air Wisconsin. This was with Lufthansa Training Center. So now to reapply for a CPP he has to wait 1 year from letter. He is now looking at regionals and I dont know if he can apply for the CPP at a later date once he is hire into a regional with United CPP program. Or has to apply for it right away when he applies for Air Wisconsin or Commute Air. Is he given only one shot at the beginning of employment because that would unqualify him.

Iíll be looking into the Lufthansa program in the future and this is very illuminating, thanks for posting.

Good. Eddie is an *******. He disciplined pilots for medical reasons.
Fired one for depression. Seatlocked another for sleep apnea and tried to discipline one for a death in their family. He doesnít deserve to have any position of authority. I hope he gets sent back to the line and had to fly like everyone else. Then again I heard heís a crappy pilot anyway.

So you have to instruct until 1500 hours, have a bachelors degree, AND be employed for least 18 month before applying to the CPP? Then wait some more? Definitely targeting career flight instructors. Just go the traditional route and fly at the regionals. It would be about the same amount of time. Now, if they had a pathway to Lufthansa, that would be a different story lol

Itís a pathway to United. You go in as a relatively new instructor and the 18 months that you spend there are technically the same 18 months that you would have spent somewhere else building your 1500 hours. If you canít pass the Hogan or werenít able to pass the United interview you can just go apply at a regional after your reach your 1500hrs/18months and go from there. Iím sure itís not easy to get hired at the school and the United interview is probably very challenging as well since they are essentially hiring a fresh instructor, but for those who are interested I think itís worth a shot.

The LAT USA / United Airlines Career Path Program offers qualified flight instructors a direct pathway to a US Major Airline. Candidates who are qualified and selected will, after 18 months of flight instruction with LAT USA and meeting the program completion requirements, be placed in the hiring pool at United as a First Officer on their narrow body fleet.

Iím reading this to mean that if in the 18 months instructing with Luft. you pass the Hogan and the United interview you will then be placed in the United pool after 18 months. Now, I donít know if there are any other shenanigans that might pop up like the school keeping you as an instructor for much longer than the 18 or so months. We would need input from actual students of that school for that.

Iím just skeptical. It all sounds amazing, but I feel like you have to wait until the 1500 hours or 18 months to apply for the CPP. By the time you take the Hogan and do the interview THEN get a class date, how much time have you really spent at the school? I could be wrong and I hope I am, but it sounds too good to be true.

At what point are people opting in to the CPP and taking the Hogan? Is it during training or some point after? If itís after how long after training do you have to wait?

You have a year from hour hire date to enroll. Itís been 6+ months since the second round of CPP enrollment closed and as far I know no one from that group has taken the hogan yet. Could be tomorrow, could be another year, no one really knows. The people through it successfully are moving along pretty regularly so Iíd anticipate sooner rather than later but no one really knows.

Anyone gotten the Hogan yet, or know why it hasnít been put out yet?

It will be interesting to see if the union survey puts out any results that are worth a turd.

Iíve heard ~40 this year to United. Not sure if thatís accurate though because the last couple months have only been 2 a month. Unless we do 3 a month that number is likely to fall short. The good news is, United is looking to hire 600-800 pilots this year. Though there was recently an ALPA merger meeting between UAL and B6. Not saying there will be a merger, but if there is, it may temporarily stop hiring.

I think I read in ALPA magazine that XJT has a 25% United new hire class CPP guarantee. There was another UAX carrier (I forgot which, maybe Republic) advertising a 10% class guarantee. I haven't heard a hard number from Skywest, but I'll bet it's substantial. That leaves AW, Commutair, GoJet, Mesa, and TransStates to fight over MAYBE 300 slots??? Not counting what United does in direct street hires ... 40 is already less than 5% of expected hiring and they don't look on track for that at the moment. Yes, a few AW folks will get picked to make good on the promise but I doubt it will be over 20 in 2019.

This is wrong on so many levels. It actually hurts to read it.

The only regional airlines that UAL has CPP agreements with at this time are Expressjet, Air Wisconsin, Commutair, and Mesa.

Skywest has no agreement, and no CPP slots. Same for Republic. Same for Trans States and GoJet.

We are sending people to UAL via the CPP. I personally know 3 that left in January...and Iíd be willing to bet there was a 4th.

Itís not a huge number, itís not a true flow, but it is a way for many of our pilots that deserve to move on to do so.

Respectfully, you really need to get your facts straight before you post. As mentioned, your CPP airlines are all wrong. This is exactly how bad rumors start and a great lesson in not believing everything you read on Internet forums.

You know, if we were having this conversation in the crew room and you said, "Wait, not all carriers are part of the CPP. Only a few." I would have said, "Oh, sorry. I assumed all UAX partners were invited to participate in CPP. My mistake." We would have moved on in the conversation. Instead, on the internet, we hide behind the anonymity of our keyboards and bash people. This tends to be why I don't participate in many online discussions. Thanks for reinforcing it....

Now that I know "the facts" it makes the CPP program for ZW even more frustrating. Of the few players in the game, a couple have been given class size percentage guarantees. Not ZW. It is my opinion, only supported by my observations, that a 10% guarantee to ZW would be fair. If that were the case, we would be talking about 60-80 going to UA this year not 40 or less.

I was also acquainted with a couple of the people who have had a chance to move up to UA and was happy for them. I saw a new article yesterday that said the CPP MEC members met to discuss the program and early poll results. I did fill out the poll. I hope their discussions were fruitful and will result in a better program.
