Default iAero Investment

The iAeroGroup investment in the 2 companies on 36th street, and Swift, seems logical at first glance.
But then they allow continued mismanagement from Swift.
2 emergency landings, in less than a week due to Maintenance. Flight Crew members are afraid to fly the aircraft. Instead of getting to the planes fixed properly, they continue to punish people for refusing to fly broke airplanes. Safety department, Quality Control department, completely failed and ineffective.
But then again, this is what 36th street is well known for.
Just had hopes.... So much money invested, but nothing changed. From the beginning of this thread until NOW.

Any hiring going on at Swift right now? If so, how often and where are classes held? What is the training footprint? Is home basing still an option?

And all that with a Chief Pilot who cares and stands behind his pilots.

Where are you guys doing the sims? In house training? or are you using a third party (cae, flightsafety, etc)?

Any update on the SW pathways program? Not a lot of information out there.

Sims are at Pan Am with company instructors. Dry lease sims, and no update on the southwest deal yet.
