Somebody once told me you're not a real airline pilot until you get divorced, file bankruptcy, and get furloughed all atleast once. Transstates will gladly help you become a real airline pilot.

We haven't had furloughs in a while. Been hiring like mad to cover the massive understaffing.

As for the company, it's a regional. Better than friggin' gojets, probably not as nice as some of the nicer ones. You won't find a better pilot group to fly with, but you could probably find a better prospect for growth. (There won't be any. probably ever.)

No growth to speak of. Hiring for attrition. Once the leases and contact with united are up in 2013 this place will be a year to year contact renewal with united if they want us. With possible reduction in uax flying (depending on who you talk to) with the new united ta, there will be some dumping of 50 seaters somewhere. Not sure if our 17ish will make the cut. That being said, the contract isn't bad. About average or slightly better. And the pilot group is great

If the TAs at AA and UA pass, the MRJ90 Hulas has on order is scoped out; the MRJ70 is allowed though. The order book might have to be adjusted to use the planes in the US.

I hope the pilots at TSA come out ok in the next few years with hiring beginning to spool up at much greener pastures. The most important thing to get out of TSA is yourself.

Amen brother. Trans States helped me with 2 out of 3, would've been a 100% if I wasn't already broke as a joke :o

The MRJ90 has or will be scoped out due to it's max allowable takeoff weight at ever major. Only US air has the scope to allow it. It's my belief that either pre or post bankruptcy, AA and US will merge. Rumor has it that the agreed to terms of an AA/US merger will have scope similar to what AA is voting on now which would also scope out the jet. They could convert orders to the MRJ70 but the 90 is supposedly the first jet off the assembly line which is already behind schedule to late 2015 / early 2016. In the meantime, TSA is left with obsolete 50 seaters and an uncertain future.

sure, pal. that sounds way better than gojet.

gojet offers different equipment and different pilot bases. there could be beneficial things for new hires at either side.

Just got called for an interview. Been in the business for a while, so I know what the issues are at Trans States. Looking for solid information on the interview as I have heard some things have changed from the past. Anybody who has interviewed recently PM me.

Thanks
