Default The Number of Pilots Leaving Regionals

Does anyone have any idea as to the number of pilots leaving their airline is each month versus the number of total pilots on their seniority list? It seems to be picking up rapidly, but I can't get any actual numbers.

Averaging maybe 1-2/month with a list of roughly 150. Mostly junior FO's moving laterally, very few CA's are leaving for greener pastures. Not much movement at all.

I've moved up about 25 numbers in the past 6 months. 1700+ pilots total.

Comair is losing an average of 20+ per month. That's includes the early outs. Many are mid-list FOs, downgraded captains, or junior captains. We also lost about 40-50 very junior FOs. Personally, I'm up around 120-130 numbers since the January SNL

Eagle is seeing a LOT of movement. With more flowthrough pilots leaving this fall it will continue. Then comes the 800+ new hire slots at AA. Lots of Eagle new hires are holding hard lines within a couple months.

I moved up about 100 numbers so far this year a RAH alone, almost 300 since I was first furloughed. Not too worried about reserve anymore for the time being.

ASA is more-or-less stagnant, very small numbers of pilots leaving and nowhere near enough hiring/upgrading to mitigate the staffing loss.
