When AC hires a large number of pilots from Jazz when are the vacant positions posted? I know there is lots of communication between both airlines with respect to just how many pilots should flow and when. Only a small number of Jazz pilots were hired at AC over the summer, where as the first (very large) class in September was primarily Jazz.

After reading the biographies I have to wonder if the Training Department has a complete turnover every 6 months.

They don't really post them unless in a bid. I guess you could cross check the seniority list against the proposed numbers

It’s really only the bottom of the training pilots list that turns over, the rest are career Jazz pilots, on my type only the bottom 5 right now are likely to go, above that not going for sure

Okay so how Jazz will provide AC with the 60% for the next year?

Barring no changes to the CPA with AC or addition of new business (Transborder CPA), Jazz will be getting smaller and smaller...

The biggest barrier to Jazz providing 60% going forward (for example 0.6 x 600 = 360) for 2020 is the lack of qualified candidates (ATPL plus 2000 hours).

The big winners will be the recent Jazz hires who meet these minimum qualifications and could leapfrog those that do not.

p.s. there is a Jazz PML flow-through pilot holding left seat on the last AC equipment bid (interim). 26 years old.

Congrats.

So is it not a 2 year minimum now and it's just whenever they can take you?
