Yes it a real shame to have one's lifes savings in the form of a pension eroded by more than 50 percent. Increasing the retirement age to 65 for some is not a gift... it's a requirement so they can survive and increase their chances of having some form of retirement to supplement their eroded pension plans. Good luck guys.

I don't think there's ever gonna be ANY public clamoring for pilots to get restored payrates.

Only when there is education for those who aspire to become a major airline pilot realize selling their low-time ticket for $20/hour to a 121 operator results in the stagnation (plummet) of the profession will this ever begin to recover.

Until then ... don't use those dasderdly rudders <tic>

If you're an aspiring major airline pilot ... get your experience w/o going 121. You'll be doing yourself a huge favor. If you're a <2000 hour guy @ a 121 operation working for <$50 hour ... you'll do yourself a similar favor by finding another venue.

If you're <27.5 years old, drop me an email [email protected] I can offer you a few options.

Good luck to us all!

These days it seems that if one is going to have a real chance at a major airline the regionals and specifically a left seat in an RJ at a regional is the dominate path to success. I know I would be interested to hear what your alternatives are.

On another note I have suggested that we form a non-profit organisation that produces a DVD on the hardships one faces in pursuit of a flying career. I could host and we could solicit data and stories from everyone on this forum. We could mail it out to every newly issued student pilot licence.

Age 27.5 is about as late as you can start the military application process and finish before you reach the cutoff of 28. Although the cutoff has been variable in the last few years depending on need.
