The company is now ramping up recruitment at the universities with big flight programs in concert with the lowered minimums to try to grab as many qualified pilots as possible before they are all the way on the airline track. I'm sure we will get many pilots from these programs, but I doubt we will be able to hold onto a huge percentage of them very long unless the company offers more money in a new contract. I'm personally hoping for lots of hires followed by lots of rapid departures since this is the only way the company will be willing to come to the bargaining table to improve things for everyone on property- we have at least 5 or 6 years left on the current contract with the extention available to the company. At least this may accelerate the process of hiring/ retention pain for the company.

Funny how they want to be rid of the older very experienced pilots and continue to lower the bar for new folks.

Umm, they’re more expensive. That’s not hard to follow.

Folks on international fleets, that are too old to go international, are problematic.

How expensive is it when an inexperienced pilot bends metal, much less harms someone? Ever heard the phrase ‘you get what you pay for’?

There are many countries that fall into the international category that don’t have limitations. It’s not hard to create an algorithm to separate who goes where.

'Bout the same as when an experienced pilot bends metal, no?

No argument there. However, who is more likely to make the bigger mistake?

Hard for an experienced pilot to bend metal when they are too old to legally take the trip. Sorry, old pilots are a drain on what we do. Pilots know this. Management knows this. FDAC knows this. At some point, pilots need to hang up the headset.
