This is a repost because I couldn't figure out how to "undelete" the previous thread.

For those of you who are unemployed or underemployed (like me) here's a good one~

California Pacific Airlines is hiring: http://www.flycpair.com/

A regional start up out of the newly renovated Carlsbad Airport flying E170's. I read an article on "Cranky Flier" that gave it a thumbs up. They have the money, the aircraft and the market.
If you've never been to Carlsbad, CA it's a must see. One of my very favorite towns in So Cal. BEAUTIFUL with a lot of history.

Side note: My buddies at Virgin America tell me they will have more openings soon.

Happy Dispatching!

They've had this posting up for at least the past 2 months now without closing it. Odd.
