Anyone know if Mesa is still implementing the 3 month base lock in IAD for all new hires?

You'll most likely be based in DFW. There were no IAD openings on the last standing bid that I saw. They seem to be putting the effective date 3-4 months out from when you are awarded the base.

I lied to you. Apparently new hires are still getting IAD but it wasn't available on the standing bid for guys on the line. hope this helps.

Flyboy68: Trying to remember where you said you were at...but, IAH or SDF should both be pretty close to you, aren't they?

Got it. I assumed they were still doing this. I actually went through training at mesa about a year ago but had to leave for personal reasons. We were locked in IAD for 3 months after IOE. So im thinking of trying to go back, just hoping DFW is somewhat of an option, if not right away then soon after.

I wasnít hired recently but I think you can select at time of hire - before class. I donít know of anyone who didnít get the aircraft that they wanted.
