Default Bedford's last update

Any idea what the "projects" are they've been working on? My guess is new safety vests for all

Rumors I've heard with location and source of hearing them:

Training Center:
1. Potential Flow announcement with United - Company is in talks but it is a very difficult situation since they are 22% owned equally by each of the Big 3 and 44% privately held. Source: A Chief Pilot

2. Buying a Flight Training School - This would help with recruitment and give people a path from PPL to flying the ERJ-170/175 at Republic.

Flight Deck:
3. Buying another regional (Trans States seems most likely). Source: 18 Year Captain

In general multiple people have said Bedford is very good at this type of thing - getting people excited and talking about announcements/projects vaugley, letting people's imagination run and then sometimes nothing comes of it, or if something "Big" does happen it may not be that big of a deal to you personally or to the pilot group but is big for the company.

Hope that helps. Best Regional in the Industry IMO.

I'd be shocked to see a flow agreement with United. Especially since American owns the majority of us. But yes I agree, best regional in the industry. No more industry leading pay but easily the best contract of the regionals.

-Flow
A fleet manager mentioned that Bedford was talking to DAL AND UAL and is aiming for a release of what every they come up with in Q3. best case scenario flow, worst case a guaranteed interview.

-Flight School
Already has happened actually, will be in Indy from what I'm hearing. I work on PTAT and have been told the angle we are selling it is we aim for people graduating from high school to the folks who want to do the job, but cant afford it. Not sure what the work commitment will be on the back end of those agreements, but they really are trying their best to pull in as many people as they possibly can currently.

-Flight Deck
Fleet manager is working on getting iPads data on the deck, right now the hold back is one of the majors.
