HQ and their minions run the show. The rest unfortunately are cannon fodder. What was once a respected pilot program is no longer. You are just labor. Think Army Aviation run by the Border Patrol. This is exactly what happens when non pilots or pilot trainees are put in charge of professional pilots period.

Do you and your buddies a favor and look elsewhere. The 121 world is a better place to be. I'm quite content where I am but call it the way I see it. 7 and change to go!
So what is a professional pilot?

Someone who flies for a living, and understands what all that entails.

The military for example almost always promotes tactical operators to be the leaders of their specialty corps, to avoid the problem of managers who don't understand what it is they are managing.
