Default USA Jet questions

Hi All,
offered opportunity to apply with USA Jet, and am quickly approaching furlough with another non sched. Anyone have some good intel on USA Jet. Ive seen schedules, and dont seem too bad. Also, anyone know of crashpad 30 minutes from DTW? ANY info would be very welcome. Thanks,
Meash

30 mins from YIP would be better.....Several of their pilots are over on PPW if you have specific questions.

30 mins west from DTW would put you right on the door step of willow run.

what he NEEDS is a better option than usajet. But yes you are correct it is KYIP and not KDTW. Willowrun is in a pretty depressing area. The only thing I miss about that place is Sidetracks in Depot town.

Well if you work at a non sched now you pretty much already know the drill. Was there anything in particular you wanted to know?

yes, I wish there were more promising offers out there, but there arent. Over 10 years in the airlines, and Im being vetted by commuters, and outfits like USA Jet. Should I just go on unemployment and wait this thing out? I want to stay current, so pretty much need something, anything! I wasnt looking for a com pany breakdown, just crashpad info, or apartment info for YIP. Any info will be appreciated yall.
