Just saw on these guys website that they are flying BWI-HGR-Cumberland now for Pan Am. Also mentioned some pretty extensive growth in other areas. Anyone flying with these guys? Any speculation on if they will actually make these expansions??

My impression is that they are only going after folks with J31/J32 time right now. Word of mouth is that they want you to resign your seniority number if they hire you. I believe its a non union shop so you will have to draw your own conclusions.

Boston-Maine has about 10 furloughed pilots working for them. None of which were forced to resign their numbers.

But they WERE required to sign 5-YEAR, $14,600 training contracts.

18 months??

18 Months now?

When I interviewed early this year it was 5 years and I had to decline. I had almost 2000 hours in the J31 back in the mid-90s and the thought of flying it again for a further 5 years seemed excessive.

Thats dissapointing because had it been an 18 month contract when I interviewed -- I would have accepted the job.

Oh well...guess thats how the ball bounces.

I can verify the furloughs, a new-hire cruised by our FBO with a resume in hand, said they actually shut down the simulator and sent him home.

All of the above is true,
This place is a joke to say the least, yes they do the BWI-HGR-CBE
12 legs a day, talk about a joke! There is a 5 year training contract $14600, reduced each month of "service" by $700 until 18months goes by then it stays fixed at $2000. They are non-union so yes its their way or the highway, they think they can run an airline like the railroads they own. Upper management a joke. They have just shut FLA routes down and cut way back in the Northeast, I have never been at a place where Moral is so low! IF I WERE YOU I'D STAY AWAY, STAY VERY FAR AWAY!!!!

Homer69,

You sound a bit miserable. Maybe you should leave that company if it is so bad...
