How long were you out for? After a certain amount of time your able to bid for what you can hold. Are you sure you have to do the 145? Or perhaps you want to.

I’ll be starting indoc in Nov just wondering if the 145 will be available, and how long it would take to get back to Miami. The 175 would be great but since it’s not based in Miami I think the QOL would be better on the 145.

No one knows what will be available for each class.

145 guys have been able to bid back to Mia on the FO side after one or two bid cycles. 3-6 months.

A lot that went to Mia have since come back to Lga as they never flew at all on reserve in Mia. So that will help speed up a transfer to Mia for you.

Thanks,

Also if I donít get the 145 Miami, and say I get 175 instead what is the next best base to pick for QOL if Iím commuting out of FLL?

Iím not sure if this was meant for me, but I was out for over a year. I would take the 175 if they offered it, but it doesnít sound like thatís an option. Iíll ask when I can get in touch with someone in training.

Training department has said all new hire FOs are going into the 175 for now. How long that will last, who knows. But the 145 training is winding down significantly. They just displaced another 7 145 instructors back to the line, along with 6 instructors doing line rotation, and additionally a handful of 145 PSIs are transitioning to the 175.

The situation here is certainly a bit intriguing. The company claims a captain shortage but I personally donít see it reflected anywhere. No critical coverage, reserves not being used much at all, not much OT to go around, etc. Weíve just been stock piling pilots. Almost as if a bunch of flying is about to get dumped on us sometime in the near future...

Well...a wave a new 175s is starting to roll in beginning this November. 25 planes on order if I remember correctly. At roughly 20 pilots needed for each plane, that's 500 pilots required. And considering that we're losing 29 pilots/month to flow alone throughout next year, things are gonna get very tight next year. We may not be feeling it too badly right now, but it's no doubt coming.

Ten 175s in the 4th quarter this year, then 15 next year. So theyíre definitely loading up for the future staffing needs.
