Jeff90-as articulate as always I see.

Jeff90 & Mexi - don’t feel bad about not understanding, without the bottom few bricks we’d have no pyramids...also, let me remedy your near-vision: theres alot more Swift pilots here than you think

All in all, Swift in the past few years has become a legitimate money maker due to its lack of competitive compensation and lack of investment in product. Investors have noticed this and have decided to make Swift operate more reliably using our existing product offering. THE WAY THIS COMPANY OPERATES WILL NOT CHANGE BECAUSE IT WILL ADVERSELY AFFECT iAERO’s CAPITAL PLANNING.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE WHAT SWIFTs FUTURE WILL BE, LOOK NO FURTHER THAN CENTURION-I mean SkyLease...

This purchase is the eventual fate of all 36th performers. If you can fly consistently and become dependable, a group of shady investors with vague backgrounds will come in and start pumping you full of steroids and protein shakes so you can fly faster and more often. iAero=pump and dump.


I wholeheartedly invite any pilot interested in working at Swift to jumpseat on a Swift flight out of any scheduled ops base (ACY/ENV/MIA etc.) don't stay along for the ride, just list for the jumpseat and watch the preflight/departure process. Notice everything a pilot has to do to get off the gate. Notice the lack of company support. Notice the condition of the aircraft, both the cockpit and the seats in back. Ask the pilots and flight attendants what they think about working for the company.

Don’t believe anything anyone says on this forum, just go and see for yourselves!

Its very clear that the people who defend this place are foreign pilots that think this is a legitimate airline/company, the chief pilo-errrr ummmmm I mean “Jeff90” and Mexi, a recruiter.

So once again, use your jumpseat privileges to get to MIA and just observe. Then come back here and report what you saw. Thats fair right?

Oh and BTW, this is not the first or second time -277 has had flap extension issues, ask me how I know...

Recently one of the company's Nice Guys, Favorite Guys, crossed the CP when he refused to take an airplane with the Antiskid inop. At that time he went from Company Hero, to Company ZERO, and was FIERD.
But yet they continue to talk about how safety is such a big priority.
My Highest Cudos for that individual. He was / Still is, a dam good, well qualified, Pilot, Check Airman, Sim Instructor.
I am sure that he was employed somewhere else before the day was done.

Just wait till another tail scrape turns into a tail strike turns into an accident with a “FLL Dynamic” style evacuation and a couple of pax bouncing off their heads off the pavement.

(Mexican) 737 crash out of Havana? My first thought was Swift and please don’t let it be anybody I know.
(Miami Air) 737 off the runway in Jacksonville? My first thought was Swift and please don’t let it be anybody I know.

We all know anything that happens will be classified as pilot error.
It will take somebody that has worked there or for a similar 36th street operation to understand how the whole system is setup to make the PIC the fall guy.

These operations are a house of cards.

Man you guys just always wishing well onto others, Christ almighty. Hope your careers never go facing a dire situation. Calling everyone here to fail basically.

Some of us are working hard to better this place, even when those of you who have had negative experiences bite at our ankles.

Yeah a one crash airline is correct, we’re not delta or American who have had hundreds of incidents/accidents a year and can afford to stay afloat with their billions in insurance, lawyers etc. Doing it right the first time is key and that’s a struggle growing fast and trying to maintain a status quo. We have come a long way from what we were years ago. The mom and pop airline mentality unfortunately still exists in the operation and as it grows it’s unsustainable as you get to 200 pilots and 30 plus acft. FOQA is being implemented to help that and we do have gate keepers calling asking about flights. So they are keeping score.

I have never as CA, FO or LCA been made to do anything outside of safety or regulation. Nor have I ever felt the repercussions from it. 2 people sign the release not just one. Even if you’re the FO you have a say. Walk away and if as you guys claim someone pushes you ASAP it, report it etc. Your leadership doesn’t always know everything, show them in the book. Call out your CA. How many accidents have happened because the FO sits there and lets the CA dig both of their graves.....
