Default DFW Base

I might be a new hire soon, I would like to eventually be based in DFW, what equipment should I bid for, that would allow me to return to DFW ASAP?

Thanks

“Bid” for Skywest or Mesa if you want DFW

Don’t even consider coming here, do some research.

Seriously, just read the top topics in this forum and if you are still even considering this place, god help you. Not even joking, consider Skywest, they are not going anywhere and have a base here, as well as many other locations should you choose.

If you thinking of Envoy because of flow due to not having a degree, spend the next five years getting one online easily and cheaply and then go to another major. This route will still have you beating the flow by 4.5 years.

Yeah, at this point, you would make much more money AND get to a major before half a decade before flowing if you followed this route, even without a degree. 8-9 year flow is not worth anything. If it even exists then.

This has to be a troll. Or dumb enough to not even skim any of the top 10 current threads.

It really is going to be hard to tell what equipment to select for them fastest transfer. 95%would probably say the 175 but it really is up in the air.

Secondly if you want DFW as a base then Envoy or Skywest is unfortunately your only options. Skywest has a small base here but with better pay and no union.

Don’t listen to the sky is falling guys on here. It’s not sucking any more or less when they chose to come here. The thing is there are much better options out there right now than Envoy in terms of Pay and QOL.
