So, I'm considering applying to Mesa. I would want to be based in SDF. However, the only places that I have seen anything about the SDF base are on the ATP website and by a Mesa recruiter over the phone today. Is SDF a pretty junior base or a pretty senior one?

Junior for CA.
Medium for FO. They have plenty. You want to live there. Early starts, late finishes. Mixed signals about the future of the base but it seems solid for now. AA is doing some mainline flying from SDF now - and that's interesting.

They just recently updated this information on the website. I made this table to keep track of trends. SDF is a new hire base, and pretty junior on CA side too. But, it is by far the smallest base. IAD seems more likely for new hires lately.
