But generally, you are correct.
Even then, just ask all the SC people at whiskey how CAE worked out. Still a safer bet in your example though.

Both are good points. It does take awhile for MX bases to come and go with significant infrastructure investment (access to a cheap hangar). ORF is a great example with PSA since taking over the hangar after AWAC left.

Wholly-Owned regionals tend to hold on to their maintenance base flights/routes a bit better, but at non-wholly owned carriers its a bit more of a crapshoot. Look at CAE for ZW, COS/PSP for SkyWest, etc.

not sure what the crapshoot is in COS or PSP. those have been MX bases for years and while the domiciles are small, they're very stable and very senior.

the crapshoot is that even though they are maintenance bases for the wheezy, a lot of other regionals tend to get through flights through them.
