Guess what they can hold it if they want, they have good faith exemption and then the new employer can go to the PRIA board and submit a complaint

100% true regarding the slow walk of the PRIA requests

I'm interested in finding out a little more info about IAero. I know itís not exactly the top of lists for places to work. However the junior AEX base is close to where I live, so itís appealing in that regard. Obviously COVID turned everything upside and Iím assuming they arenít hiring. What were upgrade times and average hours flown per month pre-covid? How many nights away can you expect a month particularly if you live in the AEX base?

Rumor has it we have to hire 90 by November. Upgrade time is a crapshoot right now. If we start hiring consistently you can probably expect 12-18 months. Flying in AEX varies, but you can expect 70-80 hrs per month with less than a handful of overnights as almost all the flying there is government and day trips

Aex in normal life as someone stated you can fly over 60hrs. Itís all day trips so youíre back in base almost daily with few exceptions like catching the plane somewhere else.

The complication is thereís no established crashpads, we have FAs that have apartments or actually live there. The pilots we have in aex have been living in hotels and have their own vehicles down there since they live somewhere in the southeast.

We are about to open GSO as a base as well but it will be small and will most likely go senior.
