Default Champion Air

Does anyone have any current info on Champion Air?

1. Are they hiring?

2. How many hours do lineholders get average?

3. How easy is it to get DFW domicile out of training?

1)I think they are hiring SO's into the panel with upgrade to FO in 6 months.

2) I don't know what lineholders average, but my understanding is right now they are short staffed and the pilots are getting overworked, could be wrong though.

3) I believe DFW is one of the most senior domiciles so I would say getting it out of training is unlikely. I believe you would most likely get STL or their new domicile OKC.

right here,we are going through apocalyptic contract negotiations right now,our future is very much anyones guess,many of the lads and lasses are headed for greener pastures (aka Co,DAL,NetJets et al),upgrade is quick,but you are rolling the dice in the proverbial crapshoot if you come over now,that being said the 727 is superb,you fly with great people, I will always treasure my time here. this was my first jet.
