94% of those DL hired since 2014 have been white male with similar at the other top end carriers. Youíre right, itís so difficult being a white male in this industry.

What is the percentage of white male pilots? Iíd guess higher then that. Hiring should be in the exact same percentages as the whole.

It's higher than that as a pilot group, but the demographics of those getting into the industry have diversified some.

Still... seriously arguing against 94%???

55-60% are civilian. Try again. I guess ignorance really isn't bliss.

My class, the first class post-2001, was 100% civilian.
