Let me put it this way. United has made it very clear that they intend to shift the 145 to IAH and away from ORD and EWR. They want to increase the 550 presence in those bases.

XJT is a United puppet. The emails we get about the future are just them painting a rosy picture when in fact they only find out what is really going on a short time before we do. Trust me no one at XJT knows what we are doing.

All I am saying is that I believe that some bad news has been handed down to XJT management and that we will find out what it is before too long.

The airline will close and those with valid CFI certificate will have the opportunity to fill in instructor vacancies at Unitedís new flight school, for an Aviate 2.0 or CPP 3.0.

...I donít understand how some of you draw such rumors.

I agree. I was the person on here last August saying we would hire DECs and I nailed it despite everyone saying I didnít know what I was talking about. At the time the upgrade was 5 years. If you follow my posts they arenít generally negative at all. I always call it like I see it. I hope I am dead wrong and we announce some great things. Iím just reading the tea leaves bro.

So United is just going to throw away what theyve invested?
