[QUOTE=point432;2656417]Seriously. Who is the ATSG ABX Air President?

David Soaper. But I hear he thinks he is the president of ATSG.
It appears as if his buddy Radamaker is trying to force him into the ATSG president position. Didn't he run Comair into the ground and get fired from Southern?

So I think it's about 60 pilots have quit. Think of all that money spent training them and then trying to find replacements!

I know abx thinks it's free cause they own the sim but the instructor gets $275 hr and student $50 hour for 2 months while not being productive online.
And now they pay Perdiem and hotel on top of that. So it's prb about $35,000 for each Pilot who quits and then another 35k for his replacement. So about 60 have quit hired 50 more around 3.5 mIllion in pay!

But when your losing flying at the same time?

Just a question :
Radamaker got fired from Comair
Soaper got fired from Comair and Southern. What gives these ďtoolsĒ the ability to destroy a company?
That answer is Joe Hete

Never in history has there been a better time to harness both the momentum of an industry set to double global departures by the year 2035, and a large supply of highly experienced pilots ready to go to work for the right price. The only one who sees it is Connie Kalitta. I don't get it........

ATSG has been milked by all concerned. The investors have seemed to take note. Falling stock prices seem to indicate the listeners of the quarterly babble just arenít buying it.

Funny how Kalitta signs a good contract and is growing by 200 pilots. They must have secured a huge amount of flying ATSG missed out on! We get an update from 1224 that says they spent a week trying to talk about what the definition of international is! Heard 1224 might be working on preferred hiring for pilots who want to go elsewhere!

Iíve heard that also. I think itís a great idea. Who wants to stick around at a place that treats their employees so bad and appears to be shrinking into oblivion.
