Equipment:
About 75 Brasilias and 50 CRJs used in codeshare agreements with United and Delta

Domiciles:
Delta Brasilia and CRJ: SLC
United CRJ: FAT
United Brasilia: PDX, SMF, MRY, FAT, SBP, SBA, PSP, SAN, and DEN.

Pay:

January RSMs were 101.9% higher than last year due largely to the dramatic increase in CRJs on property. Another 80 CRJs on the delivery schedule between now and Dec 2004.

Happier than most.

Are there any plans for this summer maybe for any open houses considering projected hiring plans?

Thanks,
Mike

Funny you should mention that. There are going to be three recruiting open houses in March that will include pilot recruiters. They are being billed as Friends and Family events designed to bring in folks already tied in with SkyWest employees. It is not clear to me whether you need a reference letter to get in or not.

Here is the info:

All locations will be open 10 am to 2 pm with general presentations at 10 and noon and specific area presentations (pilot, ramp, mechanic, customer service) following.

Wed Mar 6
Salt Lake City
SkyWest Hangar and Training Center
1129 North 3950 West

Wed Mar 13
Los Angeles
Rennaissance Hotel
9620 Airport Blvd

Wed Mar 20
Portland, OR
Embassy Suites Hotel
7900 Northeast 82nd Ave

Thanks, I live in Portland. I do know some Skywest employees, both pilots, and ramp personel. That would be nice to talk to someone.

Andy,

Do you happen to know Skywest's hiring plans? Are they currently doing interviews or waiting until March?

No one is being called in for interview until the March-June timeframe. We have about 70 folks in the pool.

Hi Andy,

I miss seeing all the good info from you on the old SkyWest board. I had a buddy jumpseat in from SFO to SMF last Sunday night on the Brasilia and he said it was manned by two captains. Is the manning starting to get tight with the the prop crews?

Andy,

Is anything written in stone about the next pilot class. The most current intel I have is something I believe you posted 3-4 weeks ago about a late March class (subject to change, of course). What's the word from UAL?

Tailwinds...

Refferal letter

All applicants planning on attending the SkyWest refferal fair, should bring a letter of referral written by a SkyWest employee.:p

g159av8tor,

The latest info I have on class dates is March 27th and, as always, subject to change.

We anticipate (rightly or wrongly) that UAL will reach a settlement with IAM before a strike. Don't have a clue on the outcome of scope issues but it looks like we will encounter a ceiling before long. Our president addressed this issue with some financial analysts during a webcast last week and gave several alternatives if that happens.
