I just read every post and checked out the job posting on the company website and have a couple quick questions.

Way back on Page 1, post 10 from December 2017, a comment was made that there is true world-wide home basing. Is this still the case? FRA is my home airport, and as that is not likely to change anytime soon, the ACMI world and scheduling is very attractive to me. I've really been looking at K4, but I'm open to most options and Western looks like a quite attractive career.

Second, the job posting is also from 2017 for 2018 classes. Is the 1000 turbojet still a requirement? I saw that for Military guys K4 may take turboprop folks like me. Is the same true for Western or would I need to commute for 12-18 months to a Regional or LCC to be eligible?

Thanks for the help.

When I was hired not too long ago they were looking for pilots living in the US. But needs change, so throw in a Resume with a good cover letter stating where you live and see what happens. If offered a position take the MD, they do a lot more Europe.
As for the 1000PIC, you donít need it here but youíll be in the right seat much longer.
Best of luck.

Yes to both. No agreements with DL or AS though.

Did anyone here go to the recent job fair? Any news on WGA hiring in 2019 and beyond?

What's attrition like? Growth? How many on the seniority list? Most Jr Captain hire date?

Thank you!!
