I am from the opinion that they are completely overloaded in HR with applications and trying to put classes together.
For the September 5th class, I heard there were 2 who backed out last minute.
Seems to be one class per month right now, and coming from the inside, the planes will continue to come if they are successful
in staffing them.

Default Growth and hiring are usually good signs.

And it might be pure speculation at this point. But any idea if the planned growth at Amerijet purely internal, DHL, Amazon, more MIA flying, etc?

Thanks in advance also.

Announced this week that both DFW and ONT will become temp bases. DFW is a DHL run. ONT is a new USPS run that could start by January. Peak will be working for FedEx again going to VCP. 349CM in TPA finishing checks and is ex-AA bird with winglets. Sheíll probably be added to ETOPS. And we do not know if we have been awarded any of the DHL flying they bid on.

One did get a better offer that was suited for his QOL. It can happen even in these times.

With SMF and CVG lines being senior, is it a safe assumption that ONT/DFW will probably go senior as well?

I think thatís a good assumption but honestly itís up in the air. We donít know the details of ONT yet. As they say bid for what you want and get what seniority allows for. Even if I bid for a temp base, which is as close to being home based as we have, I still bid what days off I want. That way if I canít hold my first choice at least I got a say in when Iíd like to work.

Default Rats bring plague

Lately weíve had a problem with guys not using a proper chain of command or even addressing issues with an individual. Unfortunately and recently some of our new hires are guilty of this. Itís not entirely their fault. BB has encouraged it. Nobody disagrees that when issues arise we need to fix them. But use the proper chain. Talk to the pilot first. If unsuccessful go to you chief, etc. Unfortunately weíve had a few here go right to the top and that does not sit well. Hopefully soon under ALPA and pro standards that will stop. But right now there are a few pilots here more than willing to screw you over to curry favor. Itís divisive and wonít be tolerated. And over time youíll be unmasked and true colors shown. Donít buy the hype that itís ok to just go to BB. Respect your fellow pilots and use your proper chain of command. We know thereís room for improvement and we are trying our best to make it happen.

Do you know anything about the history of AMJ and 36st street? Have you ever flown cargo? Not throwing stones, I also work for a scumbag cargo outfit. Its overrated, fatiguing and does serious damage to your health family/life etc, I'm only still here because of COVID. I'm also not shaming guys for applying that are unemployed, but trust me it's nothing special.

I myself am a bit locked in due to the golden handcuffs for the next few years, but after that give me a domestic Citation gig 7 on 7 off for less pay any day.
