I think that's what the Cherokee's are for but the hold up is trying to figure out where to mount the iPads. Rumor is the pay rates are gonna be $4.25 an hour, but at straight pay, so if your duty is 16 hours you'll get 16$4.25=$68 not bad at all! The only bad thing is that there's no per diem ; ( that's a deal breaker for me.

I know. The article I read said that Silver would DROP Cleveland, and go all Pitts. There's also a lot of other much bigger rumors circulating like different plane, getting rid of the Beechs, etc... Like any other rumor in aviation... don't believe it until the product is on campus, your paint is on the plane, and your pilots are in the cockpit. Which is exactly where I am with all this. That it all.

I normally don't even listen to rumors, but since everyones all "whats next" around here... here's the latest I've heard 'round the rumor mill:
-Possible code share with Lufthansa through MCO connecting to the Bahamas, or some other airline, to be announced at the end of this month
-staffing bid end of July ::rolls eyes::
-Saluki is the new Chief Pilot (seems legit)

Boom.

Oh Jesus could you imagine?

Add that we're getting 175s too...seems like everyone else is.

On an unrelated thought I should add some soul to this thread from time to time.

I heard (again...RUMORS). Were getting rid of the B1900s cuz of IOSA, and them needing reinforced cockpit doors w/crash axe. Too expensive, so bye bye B1900s. Also, gettijg rid of BIL system completely, and with the $$$ from the sell of the B1909s getting more Saabs for the CLE system. Codeshare with Delta, and Silver is working on a $45mil deal to fly Q400's out of FLL for longer Bahama flights. Oh, and new manuals. Again... ALL RUMORS here folks. Believe 0 til you see them on campus, with company paint, and Silver pilots flying it...
