Default How many are waiting for an AWAC class date?

How many people are in the pool waiting on AWAC? Any word on when the next class is, and how many from the pool will be in that class?

I'm waiting, last time I talked to Sara she said they were shooting for early Feb. I don't have any idea how many are in the pool, but she said that she didn't know if the class would be big enough for everyone.

Good point, that part really sucks. But waiting around months for a class date that keeps moving back? AWAC is probably a great place to work but sounds like things are pretty slow over there.

Do you folks really think two years from now, upgrade at Skywest will still be two years?

They used to make them buy the original set. The company would then provide the updates. Now, the company pays for the Jepps.

I don't know when the rule changed though.
