AU

The initial class of check airman I want to say are in sims by now.

June second we have a class of captains transitioning to 767 and 3 street hire FOs with 767 experience, I assume they can’t afford to pull FOs off the 737 yet to move.

Not sure what their next class will be composed of, I think they’re just trying to have the initial launch ready.

Any updates on 737 classes for those in the hiring pool? Any chance of a June class?

Cool

A certain person that has a 3x week podcast is tracking flights and mentioning Swift/iAero. Seems there is an increase of “border flights” in the last week or so. KELP, KSAT to KCVG and many other places around the US. Hoping these are legitimate “JPATS” ops, but it’s been hypothesized as the opposite. Thoughts?

Man I sure hope the recent uptick in iAero border flights are for the right reasons!

Take a look for yourself, particularly at the 15min mark. Flight Aware - iAero aka “Swift” flights to/from border towns and between points in central america to/from the US. Interesting....
