New announcement today Piedmont is offering new hires the opportunity to fly the Dash. It has an incentive program of an extra 1,000$ a month to make up for the increased summer flying schedule. Classes start March 1st with Sims immediately after. Base opportunities are SBY, ROA and PHL.

If you were in the January class and waiting indefinitely, would you take the Dash? I'll be in the jet eventually, but I would rather start building some time and such.

Interesting about the dash flying. Wonder if it's really worth if for a Jan or Feb hire.

Yeah I'm on the dash and can't hold philly. Can't even hold a line. Couldn't even hold an upgrade last bid. Wonder if this announcement means more opportunities. It'll be nice if they have more spots available in Philly because the last dash class all went to Roanoke.

There are still a lot of December hires waiting for sims. Who knows how long it will take for a Jan or Feb hire to get back for ground/sims. I'm concerned about the Dash leaving Philly late next year and getting stuck in ROA or SBY.

Its a personal decision. If you want to fly the Dash it's a great opportunity especially with the incentive and extra bases. If the only reason is to fly a little sooner it won't be that big of a difference. I'm on the jet so I would talk to some Dash guys and get the scoop on the schedules, bases, training, etc.

I second this. If you're in the pipeline for the jet you'd be a fool to not stay on it. Especially if you want philly.
This program specifically mentions the summer. It might be well and good for those few months but what about after? Could you even hold philly?What about a line? Would you be happy in reserve in Roanoke?
