That base has numbered days. Normally a base manager does not have that much control, if you get hired on you will understand exactly what I mean. He's the golden boy who can do whatever he wants and try away with it.

I would imagine the HWD base is not a happy place then. Build your time, keep your mouth shut, and get out?

If this guy kills the base, isn't he out of a job also?

Moral is low there from what I understand. I left right before the move. My guess is he's trying to kill the base right before he retires.

That is too bad. I have heard the company does realize that largely people are there for the short term. The pay isn't good at all so I would have hoped they would have treated people well. Sounds like HWD is possibly isolated in these regards.

I hope your move out was a move up.

There is very much a "revolving door" policy still live and well throughout the company but it is a fantastic experience. My move was absolutely a move up.

Same here, my time at Ameriflight helped me get to Allegiant. Even when I'm flying the MD80 I know I'm going to miss flying the Metroliner.

Me too. I will cherish the flying I did. It was super fun. We all heard through the network about somebody getting hired at Allegiant, that must have been you. Congrats!

Companies that know what's going on, respect AMF pilots because they know they are fantastic pilots. I got hired onto my current gig because of it.
