I award you zero points due to your lack of originality and creativity. Sounds like Breeze management has a lot to learn before they advance in union busting level. This is 1990s bush league BS.
Iím actually very glad for them that management isnít screwing with them or playing hardball. That means an industry standard contract should be easy to sign on a pretty quick timeline!


that will happen, right?

You would think that by now even management knows they really donít have much of a choice; but I have been blown away by their incompetence before.

The entire program is brand new and some type of a trial. No one but recruitment would know much of anything about it. You move to Orlando or Gulf Shores, AL and fly 500 hours with a partner flight school. Then who knows how long youíre on the hook for

Well, no more Mesa refugees it looks like, with their new pay. Skywest is close to a deal too. Don’t know about Republic but I’m sure they’ll have to match as well. Where will Breeze find the pilots for this planned big growth?

All you guys need to do is quote DN- "where's my RJ rates + 20%?"

I still always say to potential pilots with no 121 experience, tread lightly. Our training is spitballed for already-typed, previous 121 experienced pilots. Not saying you wonít make it, itís just something to consider. Regionals have established training programmes already in place that are better suited for new hires
I see a lot of people warning off who donít have prior 121 experience or a type rating. I donít technically have 121 experience nor a FAA type rating. Iím originally from the UK and have a class date with breeze in the coming weeks.

I do have about 3 years experience of airline flying from the UK and two type ratings. Would you say my experience will count for anything in helping me get through the breeze training? I know theyíre both different kettle of fish, but thought Iíd ask the question anyway!

You'll definitely have a leg up compared to CFI's, but I don't think they really cover the specifics of 121 & 117 regs because they're used to newhires already knowing them cold.

What did you fly in the UK? Off the top of my head are you familiar with or could you learn on your own (FAA) takeoff minimums, alternate minimums, two navaid rule, max flight time and duty limits, the categories of MELs etc. (possibly similar or identical?) There's a lot of little stuff that could all add up to make you unsuccessful during training or IOE
