If you hear anything I'd be interested, however, I'm not holding my breath. Been talking to a recruiter since July and back then details of their program were to be announced "in a couple weeks" and yet... crickets. Three months later.

Jonneax's, being a MBA, knows how this works. His reputation acumen are beyond reproach.

Basically he's, like, right about everything, so...

Just because weíre not in the best state currently doesnít mean that we wonít be back on our way to the top. Youíre sitting in your chair all high and mighty just because youíre a regional lifer at SkyWest airlines and you beat your chest as if the continuous growth you guys receive is helping any new hire pilot move up towards a future at a mainline carrier, when in reality the more the regionals grow the less flying at mainline is happening and thatís the opposite we want. I am planning on going to mainline one day but until then this is my airline and I am here to tell you that we will be back to where we need to be and I hope you are as salty as can be about it. Continue spewing your crap about Horizon for all I care but you donít see any of our horizon guys trolling the SkyWest threads on the daily like you do here. Iíve still got a lot of respect and a lot of friends at SkyWest and I donít have any beef with OO except for you. Constantly trolling these threads trying to make this place sound like itís in a nose dive for the ground when In reality weíre coming back up.

Side note, one thing I really enjoy seeing is how much effort you put into making Horizon sound worse than it is on a pilot forum.... I mean letís be real dude, in the last month have you seen any of us QXíers posting about how badly YOU say it is? No. For the most part you see Horizon guys telling potential new hires what is currently happening within the company so they can get help making a decision on a career with QX. You on the other hand come in here talking about us closing, losing money for AAG and making the brand look bad. Dude go find a new hobby youíre bored and terrible at it clearly.

And that's an excuse? We have APU/RADAR issues all the time in the lovely Q400 yet we still fly. The flying overall OO does for us compared to QX your cancelations are ridiculous. You are unreliable as can be when it comes to AAG flying. Yeah we might be unreliable in the pilot staffing department currently but You have more MX/WX cancels than I have ever seen with the small amount of flying you do for us right now and that's saying something when comparing it to a Q400.... oh btw you had 23 today not 17 So far looks like a constant 20+ cancels per day due to MX and "poor weather" lmao looks like the Northwest isn't your best market when it comes to CATII and lack of RNP. Get with the times dude.

This thread has become quite the ****ing contest. Don't you guys have anything better to do than compare OO to QX? At the end of the day, they're both regional airlines.

As for me, Horizon is a means to an end, and I have zero regrets about coming here. I don't intend to stay here forever, but for now it's working well for me. I'm paid a market wage, I have a good schedule, have never had to commute, and I live in base. Maybe I could have made a little more flying a shiny OO jet, but I also could have been commuting to ORD or MSP at least for a while... not doing that (ever) is worth some $$ to me, and I'm glad I didn't do it.

Truth is, none of you actually KNOW what will happen with Horizon. All I have seen here is speculation. I can't predict the future either, but I'm optimistic that we've turned the corner and will come back from this. Either way, the only thing I know for sure is that regardless of the outcome here, I'll be fine. I'm healthy, I've got an ATPL, a bit of experience, and a positive attitude. I think that last one is a LOT more important than some of you realize.
