Got a response from my resume to fill out the application package last November. The email states that they were looking fill FO class positions for January and February classes. I had multiple job offers at the time and just now deciding that planesense is the right fit for me. Have I waited too long or do you think I would still be able to get a class date before August as previously stated? Starting to regret taking so long but that is a decent contract so wanted to outweigh all my options before I made the commitment.
Thanks

They've probably moved on. That was nearly 4 months ago. You can give it a shot and send it back in but they usually don't run classes in the summer peak months.

Are they still having trouble keeping pilots? When I was there a lot of pilots were leaving. Even senior captains/IP's.

Matriculation is always a problem at most 91k 135 operators. Most that left captain wise went on to majors. 2 to Delta 2 to SWA 1 to United and 3 to JetBlue. 1 went to DPJ, another took a 91 job back home on a CE-680 out of his home airport. 2 went to NJA, and 2 went to FXJ, 1 TO XOJET. Progression. Bettering yourself is the name of the game. With regards to the FO'S, they're out mostly at 1500 if not before.

Where are most captains coming from prior to PS in order to get multi-time?

That I cannot answer with 100% certainty. Some were prior 91 in light twins or MEIs. Some of the senior guys were in the jet program here which aided in that as well. Captains at PS have a positive image in the aviation community as work horses and are generally viewed Ina positive light with respect to other 91k 135 operators mentioned above. I cannot speak from the major side of things. I've got zero experience. Another guy went to virgin Atlantic also now that I think of it which ended up as part of Alaskan.

Do you think they would take you back? Not many companies will rehire especially since you left (likely) before you finished out your initial contract. I would consider another company. PS is not as focused on recruitment as compared to retention. However, some new management may change that focus. A well worded cover letter is certainly in order.
