Hoping someone can answer my following questions..

How long is indoc, systems?
How many FTD's & Sims?

We added roughly 200 pilots last year, probably more than that this year. So look at percentages.

Again commuting can be done just takes your days off away. Once in base even on reserve your home!

The plane is amazing, the people are great, just the trips are not commutable yet. You have to get to the base a day earlier and leave a day after.

In base: the trips are highly efficient flying day. 15 hrs 2 day trips with a 24 hr layover pretty great!

The company has to fix it or they will loose a lot of pilots this year

Thank you for the info!! My ultimate plan is to get the TPA base and ride out commuting on the A220 and build seniority. Iím pretty excited, not sure what I would do if I got the E190/195 though. Probably wouldnít be for me. When do you find out?

On day 6 of an 18 day rotation 🫠Ö Keep seeing Breeze A220ís. When can I start lol

Good call on the 190 plan. Not sure thatís really doable living in Tampa. When exactly do you find out what machine?

It depends... Some have been told with their class date offer, if its a one aircraft class. Others don't know until week one of indoc after getting a seniority number and bidding. Welcome to the airline industry.

Indoc is about two weeks with some type specific stuff
Home for about two weeks for CBT training
Two and a bit weeks (closer to three weeks away from home with days off included) for systems training with FTD work
Then about two and a bit weeks (about three weeks away from home too) for full flight training

Initial investment costs of starting an airline are HUGE. So itís obvious that Breeze is burning through cash. Avelo is most likely doing the same. The difference between the two is that Breeze has built a charter business on the side and it is actually doing well. Very well. The profit margin on charter is huge, and that money funds the airlines growth.
Avelo has a pretty lucrative charter business too.

So Iíve heard from three different people, or maybe it was the same person three times over that Avelo has a pretty lucrative charter business.
