Default hiring and class date

Did anybody get hired into the right seat lately, and what class date were they offered? Rumour has it that the wait for the class date is beyond 6 months now. True?


I am part 135 with 500+hour of turboprop PIC looking to move on. It seems that this is a bad time, long wait at most of the popular regionals. TIA for your input

These rumors are funny.

The wait from job offer to class date is 1-2 weeks. This was last weeks hire.

You're only doomed once you get through training and you cash that bonus check.

Why are people still coming here? One of the lowest pay rates in the industry, terrible reserve rules, flow is close to 10 years. And a management group that is asking for concessions!

Here are a few reasons:

Stability, no wait for class dates, no delays for sims, best travel benefits if you live near markets AA serves, fast upgrades.

Hopefully with hiring picking back up, Envoy is going to go through all the “low hanging fruit” and get to a point again where they can’t fill classes. Of course, probably just up bonuses again and not fix any of the real problems.
