Now that the shit has entirely hit the fan, is zero to jazz/porter/encore 10 years the new norm?
Right this instant zero to Jazz/Porter/Encore is never. The answer will almost certainly be different by the time someone’s commercial/multi/IFR training is finished.

Re: Furlough with bond

Please oh please tell me you kept a copy of your bond for review. If not, ask the company for a scan or photocopy of the one on file that you signed while hoping they have enough people still on staff to care about doing it in a timely way.

Re: Two RTO's on the same runway - at the same time

I’m honestly surprised that a takeoff clearance can be issued with the airplane ahead still on the runway.

GGN is shuttered.
Not completely shuttered, they still maintain an office and a skeleton crew. Last I heard they had six pilots still on staff to operate somewhere between two and four remaining airplanes. Your guess is as good as mine as to what those airplanes are doing.

Re: Good time to quit training?

do the people here suggest anyone about to start or who doesn't have much invested should quit due to the bleak future? Do you want to fly? Then fly. If you’re doing it for the riches and supermodels pursuing you, I’ve already taken them. There will be a span of years between starting flight traini...

You guys in love with the 1900 as the pinnacle of aviation: one of us needs to get out and fly more planes and I’m not even sure which one at this point.

Calin has a lot of respect for his pilots, doesn't he? That's a classless response. How about No, if I'm not happy I go back to my strike rights and put you out of a job?
The main difference I see is that he doesn’t take this sort of thing personally. Neither should any employee.
