Letter To the Editor
Hi Craig,
I am really enjoying the grid you have in each edition of your magazine.
I find one item puzzling though. While you have awesome information to
compare airline to airline you don’t shed much light on 1st year pay. I don’t
know why you show “FO Top Out Pay” and nothing about first year pay. I
would certainly hope I don’t hit FO Top Out Pay at any airline I go to. I would
hope to upgrade before I see that figure. Could you please add first year
pay to your grid? Also is there any chance that American, Alaska, Delta or
United will be attending your job fair in September?
Thanks,
Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,
We do compare first year pay on page 35 and 47 in a bar graph format.
While it doesn’t show the exact numbers it does show a direct comparison
to other airlines. There are other sources that offer pay charts to compare
the exact hourly rate. We wanted to offer something more unique to our
pilots. I do not believe that any of those airlines will be attending our job fair
in September.
Fly Safe,
Craig Pieper

ExpressJet offers CJOs $1,000 referral bonus
We are excited to announce here for the first time
that we are now offering our $1,000 post-tax pilot referral
bonus to AP3 and PSP students. All students enrolled
in our Airline Pilot Pathway Program (AP3) or our new
Preferred School Program (PSP) who have completed
testing and earned a conditional job offer (CJO) are
eligible.
Here’s how it works:
• CJO recommends ExpressJet to a pilot
• That pilot lists the student as their referrer in their
interview and their first day at ExpressJet
• Once the referred pilot successfully completes
training, $1,000 is put into a “bank” under the CJO’s
name
• When the CJO completes training at ExpressJet, they
will receive all banked referral bonuses
Central Washington University AP3 students show off their

CJOs!
There is no limit to the number of referrals a
student can make, and all referral bonuses are worth
$1,000 each with no additional tax taken out. That means
that if you recommend 10 pilots who all successfully
complete ExpressJet’s training, you’ll receive a check for
$10,000 once you’re here! That’s it. There’s no catch, but
you can learn more at expressjet.com/pilots.

Allegiant Announces Vote to Ratify Pilot Contract
with International Brotherhood of Teamsters
executive officer. “It is a good deal for our pilots while
supporting our unique business model and ensuring a
bright future working together on behalf of our customers.”
Allegiant announced that pilots represented
by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT)
have voted to ratify their first contract agreement with
the Company. Allegiant and IBT have been negotiating
in mediated sessions with the National Mediation Board
since February 2014.
“Having the first contract agreement with our
pilots is an important milestone, and opens a new chapter
for Allegiant,” said Maury Gallagher, chairman and chief
“This contract represents years of hard work at
the negotiation table, and we would like to thank IBT,
the National Mediation board and all who have been
involved,” said Jude Bricker, chief operating officer. “Their
efforts have brought us to an agreement that improves the
lives of pilots, makes Allegiant highly competitive across
the industry for wages and benefits and puts us in a strong
position to move forward together.”
The contract goes into effect August 1, 2016 for a
five-year term.
Allegiant Announces Purchase of Twelve
New Airbus A320ceo Aircraft
Allegiant announced an agreement to purchase
twelve new, current engine option (ceo) Airbus A320
aircraft. This first-time new aircraft purchase by the
company is another step towards Allegiant’s planned
transition to an all Airbus fleet by 2019.
“The fact that these planes are new is notable,
but should not be seen as a change in our fundamental
strategy,” said Maury Gallagher, Allegiant chairman and
chief executive officer. “We have always looked at building
our fleet opportunistically, and this agreement is no
exception. With Airbus preparing to transition production
of its current engine option models to new engine option
models, we were able to negotiate an order for twelve
end-of-line slots.”
Allegiant has selected the CFM engine type for
the aircraft in this agreement. The aircraft are expected
to enter service between 2017 and 2018. This transaction
brings Allegiant a total of 77 Airbus aircraft either in service
or committed for future delivery.
“This purchase agreement is an important step
in transitioning to a single fleet type,” said Jude Bricker,
Allegiant chief operating officer. “Streamlining our fleet
will increase efficiencies across our entire operation and
bring economic advantages in fuel savings and a higher
number of seats -- allowing us to continue offering
the industry’s most affordable fares, while increasing
reliability.”
By the end of 2016, the company’s in service
Airbus fleet will number 33, consisting of 16 A320s and
17 A319s. At the end of this year, Allegiant will have a
total of 85 aircraft in revenue service.
“We love it when we hear the Allegiant team say
that ‘Airbus is our future,’ because that demonstrates
they are hitting their bottom-line goals while also
satisfying their passengers, and they know it’s because
of the Airbus A320 family,” said John Leahy, Airbus chief
operating officer -- customers. “When an airline grows
its A320 fleet, it’s making a sound investment in its
financial future.”

SkyWest Airlines Announces
Partnership with ATP Flight School
ATP students may receive up to $11,000 Tuition Reimbursement;
ATP Latest of 56 Flight Schools to Join SkyWest’s Pilot Pathway Program
SkyWest Airlines is pleased to announce a new
Tuition Reimbursement Program agreement with ATP
Flight School, helping aspiring pilots solidify their career
pathway to SkyWest Airlines. Together, SkyWest and ATP
are providing a pathway for students to take control of their
aviation careers. As part of this agreement, SkyWest will
participate in ATP Flight School’s Tuition Reimbursement
Program, and ATP will be one of 56 exceptional flight
schools to participate in SkyWest’s Pilot Pathway Program.
With the ATP Tuition Reimbursement Program,
SkyWest will reimburse pilots up to $11,000 for flight
training costs at ATP. In addition to the financial tuition
reimbursement, the agreement also creates a direct
path for pilots to become SkyWest cadets, securing
mentorships, access to company facilities, simulators and
more.
“We’re excited to partner with ATP to provide
tuition assistance and prepare a solid pathway to SkyWest
Airlines for ATP students, said Tracy Gallo, SkyWest Vice
President of Flight Operations. “Pilots at SkyWest Airlines
have more career opportunities than at any other regional
airline, and this partnership with ATP helps students at the
40 ATP locations across the country to truly take control of
their careers by connecting with SkyWest Airlines.”
Some additional benefits of joining the SkyWest
Airlines Pilot Pathway Program include enhanced seniority,
guaranteed final interview and access to pilot mentors.
Unlike an internship, the SkyWest Pilot Pathway Program
allows students to remain at their campus to complete their
flight training until they are able to meet SkyWest’s Airline
Transport Pilot standards. The SkyWest Pilot Pathway
Program prepares a clear path for pilots to launch their
SkyWest career, where they enjoy an unmatched culture
of professionalism, teamwork and success. For more

Envoy to expand American Eagle
Embraer service at DFW
As we reach the midpoint of 2016 and look ahead
to the coming year, we’re pleased to share more good
news about Envoy’s fleet. American Airlines has advised
us that additional Embraer 145 (E145) aircraft will return
to Envoy in 2017, in addition to the two that returned last
month and we are currently flying in support of the summer
schedule.
“These E145s will mean that all Embraer aircraft
operated as American Eagle service at Dallas/Fort Worth
will be flown and maintained by Envoy employees,” said
Dee Temples, Senior Vice President Air Operations.
“These aircraft – in addition to the new Embraer 175s
10 | Aero Crew News
(E175s) we continue to receive each month – represent
opportunities for all of the employees who support them at
American’s largest hub.”
“For pilots, Envoy’s significant presence at DFW
and ORD is perfect,” added Ric Wilson, Vice President
Flight Operations. “When it comes to ease of commuting
or quality of life within the community, Dallas/Fort Worth
and Chicago are hard to beat.”
The schedule for these aircraft is currently being
finalized, but we expect to start receiving them in February
2017, and continuing through June.

Trans States Airlines Rolls Out
Seniority Reservation Program
This unique program allows new hire pilots to
come to training for two days, and then leave for up to 90
days to complete other commitments. When pilots return
to training, they already have up to 90 days of seniority
and may NEVER sit reserve as a First Officer.
Seniority determines everything for pilots, including
schedule, base assignment, and upgrade time. Pilots are
more likely to get their preferred base assignment right out
of training with three months of seniority backing their bid.
Plus, pilots in the seniority reservation program reach year
two pay in 9 months instead of 12 months.
Something else to consider is upgrade time.
Taking on 52 new aircraft in 2015-16 means that Trans
States can offer one of the fastest Captain upgrades in
the industry (12-18 months). Fast Captain upgrades
mean that Trans States pilots start earning PIC time fast.
And don’t expect to spend much time on reserve—Trans
States pilots are spending two months or less on reserve
before getting a line.
What’s more, pay at Trans States is among the
best in the industry, and currently includes a $7,500
signing bonus.
Trans States Airlines is your smart choice for high
pay and career progression. Visit transstates.net to learn
more and apply online.

Piedmont Airlines Announces
Additional Expansion of Jet Fleet
Piedmont Airlines is further expanding its fleet of
Embraer 145 regional jets with accelerated deliveries of
aircraft from American Airlines starting in early 2017.
“This is a vote of confidence from American and
a goal we worked very hard to achieve,” said President
and CEO Lyle Hogg. “American had previously committed
20 jets to Piedmont and we are pleased that our parent
company will now continue to increase that number. The
expanding fleet of jets puts Piedmont on an exciting path
to the future, and that will lead to even more opportunities.”
Piedmont began operating the E145 regional jet
in February, and has taken delivery of seven jets so far.
All Piedmont jets will operate out of the American Airlines
Philadelphia hub.
“We will greatly expand our operations in
Philadelphia, including placing more crew members there,”
said Hogg. Piedmont offers a $15,000 signing bonus to
new hire pilots and plans to hire more than 200 pilots in
2016. “This is a very good opportunity for pilots who want
12 | Aero Crew News
to work for an airline that promises growth, stability and a
guaranteed job at American Airlines one day.”
As a result of the accelerated jet expansion,
Piedmont will begin to transition away from its traditional
aircraft, the de Havilland DHC-8 turboprop. Piedmont
expects to start retiring turboprop aircraft at a rate of about
one aircraft per month. “The Dash has served us well for
years,” said Hogg, “but we know that passengers prefer
the regional jets and we want to provide the best service
we can for American and for our customers.”
The expansion of Piedmont’s jet fleet comes amid
growth in other areas of the company. Piedmont is adding
300 customer service jobs in Charlotte, N.C. this year and
recently opened a new maintenance base in Richmond,
Virginia. “At a time when so many regional airlines are
shrinking, we are adding jobs across the country, adding
aircraft, adding new routes,” said Hogg. “It’s exciting to be
part of a very robust American Airlines Group and we’re
thrilled to be part of that success.”

Q&A
with Tracy Gallo
V.P. of Flight Operations
For a better idea of what it takes, we talked to
Tracy Gallo, vice president of Flight Operations
at SkyWest Airlines about what makes a
successful candidate at SkyWest:
How do you select applicants to be brought in
for an interview?
SkyWest pilots are top tier and experience some of the best
training in the industry. We look for professionals with great
attitudes who are looking to work on an exceptional team. Once
someone fills out the application for the first officer position at
skywest.com, we evaluate their qualifications, ensure they have
what they need or help them secure any additional things like
their CTP or work with them until they complete their 1,500
hours or FAA-approved equivalent; and if they’re ready we set
up an interview.
Can you talk me through a typical interview?
The interview is an important process for the pilot and for
SkyWest. We really want to get to know the applicants and
test their knowledge about safely operating an aircraft in a
121 environment. Candidates can expect a few hours for an
interview. Right before the interview starts, we give candidates
a brief introduction and let them know what to expect during
their interview. We spend some time going through a CRM
scenario, go over their Jeppesen knowledge, aircraft systems,
and review FARs and some general HR questions. This covers
121 rules, approach procedures, en route chart knowledge
and symbology, jet aerodynamics and high-speed flight
characteristics and similar topics. After the interview we debrief
and let the candidate know how they did.
When do you tell applicants if they are hired?
We’re very quick. If the candidate is exceptional, they can receive
an offer on the spot. At most, you’ll hear back within a few days
of the interview.
continued
Can you explain the ATP-CTP class that your
company offers?
If a pilot applies and passes the interview but still needs to complete
their ATP written exam, we will cover the cost of the ATP-CTP course,
plus travel and lodging, to ensure they meet that requirement.
Does SkyWest have a cadet program?
Yes, the SkyWest Pilot Pathway Program provides a direct path for
exceptional pilots to become a SkyWest Airlines pilot. This is an
awesome program that gives pilots a clear pathway as they complete
their training. Anyone with 250 hours and a CFI can become a SkyWest
cadet, and then once they’re enrolled [at skywest.com], they receive
a SkyWest date of hire, access to pilot mentors who help them along
the way, enhanced introduction to the company with a tour of our
facilities, interview tips and of course a guaranteed final interview.
What other incentives does SkyWest provide?
Well, in addition to the great quality of life, culture of teamwork and
professionalism, access to four major carriers, top-tier pay, benefits and
profit sharing, SkyWest is currently offering a $7,500 bonus to any new
pilot who comes to SkyWest with a type rating for any turbo jet aircraft
over 12,500 lbs or who are currently qualified Part 121 or Part 135 pilots.
The bonus is paid out once they complete their IOE. We also have
tuition reimbursement plans with certain schools and of course, the
Pathway Program. So there are a lot of great opportunities at SkyWest
for pilots who want the best possible aviation career. Anyone who
wants to learn more can visit skywest.com/careers for details.

Hydrate Your Way to Better Health
T
he human body can
survive without food for
weeks but cannot go for
more than a few days without
water. Water makes up nearly
60% of a person’s total body
weight and is the facilitator of
digestion. It is also responsible
for cellular health, regulating
body temperature, and blood
circulation.
While hydration is important daily, it is especially
significant during summertime. Fluid loss occurs more
quickly in the warmer months. Dehydration can be
detrimental to bodily functions and in extreme cases,
fatal. A safe general recommendation for fluid intake is 3
liters daily. Ensure you remain hydrated with these tips:
1. Prevent thirst before it begins. The body
triggers thirst at 1-2% fluid loss. This marginally low
percentage of fluid loss compromises some bodily
functions.
2. Consume a glass of water before each first
meal. Studies show people who consume water
Water does not have to be boring. Consider adding
lemon, lime, cucumber or orange to your water. Not only
does citrus fruit add great taste, it is also a natural fat
burner. Peppermint leaves add a nice minty flavor to cold
water and as a bonus, it freshens breath.
Next month we will learn about hidden calories in your
beverages.
Exercise of the Month

Primary Muscle Targeted: Back, Glutes and Hamstrings
Secondary Muscles: Abdominals, Chest and Shoulders
1. Lie face down on the floor with your legs straight
and your arms stretched out to the sides.
2. Raise your upper body, arms and legs together
about 18 inches off the floor as if you were flying.
• Hold this position briefly, then lower yourself back to
the floor, and repeat.
prior to each meal eat fewer calories at meal times;
contributing to weight loss.
3. Consume at least 5 cups of vegetables/fruits
daily. 5 servings will not only aid hydration, it
will provide you with potassium, a key nutrient
(electrolyte) that regulates body fluid.
4. Diversify your consumption.
Herbal teas,
coffee, milk, and unsweetened juices all contain
water. Beware of caffeine. It is a diuretic and will
deplete some of your water intake. Sports drinks,

S
un Country Airlines® wasn’t born in a corporate office.
Instead, it was started in 1982 by a small group of pilots
and flight attendants in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, the
very people who love flying. The small group that once flew for
Braniff International were joined by a few area businessmen
and MLT vacations, and the company with new Sun Country®
colors lifted off, quite literally in 1983, with a maiden flight
between Sioux Falls and Las Vegas.
In an industry that’s seen its share of changes, Sun Country
Airlines has adapted through the years, opening new routes
across the U.S., and taking more vacationers to the tropical
beaches of Mexico, Costa Rica, and the Caribbean. Even flying
charters to support our troops across the world.
TAKE YOUR
CAREER TO NEW
HEIGHTS
Since July of 2011, the airline has been owned by members
of the Davis family of Minnesota, who are also owners of
Cambria®, a manufacturer of premium countertops. Always
a Minnesota favorite, one passion guides every Sun Country
employee and every flight – to safely and effectively help
people connect with each other.
The “can-do” hometown spirit that launched Sun Country
still lifts us and our passengers today. While we may have
changed quite a bit from our humble beginnings over three
decades ago, our commitment to entrepreneurship, customerfirst service, and homegrown Minnesota values remain the
same.

Sun Country Strengths:
Hiring Perceptions, Past and Present:
•
•
Sun Country only hires pilots who live in Minnesota.
This is no longer the case. We are actively seeking pilot
candidates from both inside and outside of Minnesota.
•
Sun Country only hires pilots who have an internal
referral. While we welcome internal referrals, we also
consider candidates that we meet at Job Fairs, and
process resumes received via the Careers link on the
company public website (see below):
•
Sun Country has developed over the years the ability
to expand their fleet during the winter months. While
most airlines see a downturn in the winter months, Sun
Country has developed a relationship with Transavia
Airlines (based in the Netherlands). Transavia aircraft
are flown to Minnesota each winter. This allows extra
seats for increased Sun Country winter seasonal flying.
These aircraft are returned to Transavia after the winter
months.
The Sun Country Charter Department has grown to be
very nimble and effective at generating new business
and destinations. Sun Country has contracts with
various sports teams, and casinos to fly nationwide and
frequently to international destinations. Charter flying
allows crews to experience a wide range of diverse
destinations. Pilots joining Sun Country look forward to
a variety of flying.
•
Sun Country Vacations® has become a popular method
for customers to book their entire vacation package. Sun
Country’s relationship with resorts and hotels provides
a high quality vacation experience for its customers at a
lower overall cost, especially for families.
•
Sun Country operates out of Minneapolis – St. Paul
International Airport: Terminal 2. People “in the know”
already fly out of Terminal 2, but now more and more
are realizing the benefits of the relaxed terminal
experience that Terminal 2 provides.
www.suncountry.com/ibepublic/About/Careers.html
•
Sun Country pilots fly mostly out and backs, and are
home most evenings. While these types of trips/
pairings exist, Sun Country pilots also fly multi-day
trips, including ETOPs legs to several international
charter destinations.
•
Sun Country does not follow-through with their training
agreement. Sun Country has an eighteen month,
$20,000.00 training agreement. Though there is very
little attrition on the pilot list, those who do choose to
leave prior to the eighteen month service requirement
pay the prorated amount owed.
•
Sun Country only has one pilot base. This is true, and
all trips start and finish in Minneapolis-St. Paul. We do
have flight attendants based in Gulfport, Mississippi
and Laughlin, Nevada.

Contract Talks

Health Insurance:
The Most Overlooked Compensation
H
ealth insurance isn’t usually the first thing that comes
to mind when job seeking, even though it is one of the
largest single components of total compensation that
an employee can receive. In the era of spiraling healthcare
costs, the amount of coverage made available by the company
and the amount of cost absorbed by the company can have a
tremendous effect on the overall compensation and quality
of life of a pilot. It is also one of the things that most people
don’t regret going cheap on until they need to use it for an
unforeseen or major expense related to healthcare, which
can easily soar into the multiple thousands of dollars of out of
pocket expenses.
In most modern cases, almost all airlines provide at
least some insurance options for pilots that are paid, at least
in part, by the company. Coverages and prices may vary
depending on the airline or type of coverage selected. Some
airlines may have multiple plans a pilot can choose from, and
some may not.
Another major factor related to health insurance as it
relates to pilot compensation, is the amount of coverage that
the airline subsidizes. As an example, assume that Airline A
covers all of the insurance cost except 20%, which is passed
onto the pilot; while Airline B covers the total cost of the
insurance except 40% which is passed onto the pilot. Assuming
identical coverage, this difference can cost the pilot an extra
several hundred dollars per month, which could add up to
thousands of dollars in annual costs. While not something
immediately considered by most people, this can have an effect
of several thousand dollars or more for each pilot per year,
without changing anything else.
The other potential outcome for this might be that a
pilot for Company A can get more coverage for the same price
as the pilot for Company B.

Green Laser Strikes at Newark
It was a cold crisp night last December; we had just
been handed over to the Newark tower controller from New
York approach control. It had been a long four-day trip and we
just wanted to get on the ground so we could go home. I was
working the radios and a few seconds after I had flipped the
switch the radio crackled.
“Tower, HeavyJet 226 we were just lasered several
times in a row.”
“HeavyJet 226, roger, can you identify the location?”
“It happened approximately niner miles south of
Newark, I’m not too familiar with the area, but I see some
docks and several buildings.”
“Is any one hurt?” the tower controller queried.
“Negative, there was only a few short quick bursts and
we did not get a direct hit.”
“Copy, attention all aircraft on frequency be advised
reported laser strike niner miles south of Newark on the ILS
to 4 right. Repeat, laser strikes reported niner miles south of
Newark on the ILS to 4 right.”
I glanced over at my First Officer and advised him to be
cautious of where he is looking when we get there. We were
probably number four in line for this exact same approach.
Each aircraft in front of us reported the same thing.
“Green laser strike, same thing short burst, it looks like
Perth Amboy area.” Another pilot exclaimed.
As we approached the same area, we cautiously looked
for the laser and prepared to cover our eyes. At first I thought
maybe the person stopped, but then there it was. A green laser
pierced the night sky from the ground up. It quickly moved
towards our aircraft. Noticing the movement I looked down
and closed my eyes, but it was too late. The laser had come
within feet of a direct hit. I hadn’t lost any of my vision, I could
still see, but my eyes hurt and my vision was ‘glared’.
“Are you okay?” I asked my First Officer.
“Yes.” He replied.
“I think I got hit. I’m seeing a glare.” I clicked the push to
talk button. “Tower, LinkJet 4316, we just got hit also.”
“Roger, was anyone injured?”
“It was close to a direct hit. I am seeing a little glare, but
nothing serious.”
Pilots Against Lasers Strikes LLC
PALs is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to reducing the
number of laser strikes on America’s flight decks.
We are seeking volunteers to help us grow and educate the public on the
dangers of pointing a laser at an aircraft. We are also seeking donations to
help support our mission.

“Roger, you are cleared to land runway 4 right. Let us
know if you need any assistance.”
“Negative on the assistance for now, cleared to land 4
right, LinkJet 4316.”
We touched down on runway 4 right without further
incident. While we were taxing in to our gate the ground
controller asked us to copy down a phone number for us to call
once we got to the gate.
At the gate, I dialed the number on my cell phone, and
the controller answered,
“Newark Tower.”
“Hi this is the Captain of LinkJet 4316, we were asked to
call you, we were just lasered on final approach.”
“Is anyone hurt?”
“Negative, I was seeing a little glare, but it’s gone now.”
“Okay can you tell us more about it?”
“Sure, there were several short bursts and one long
burst. It was a green laser, after looking at the map on my
phone I can say it was definitely in Perth Amboy, just off the
Raritan Bay. “
“Great, thanks we will file a report and let the local
authorities know about it.”
I could hear quiet beeps on the phone, indicating that
this was a recorded line.
“Okay thank you, do you need me to do anything else?”
“Nope that’s it, thanks for your help.”
I hung up my phone, grabbed my belongings and headed
to my car. I later filed a report with my company and even
followed up with my doctor to make sure that there was no
damage to my eyes. My doctor cleared me even though I had
still seen glares for a few weeks afterwards. He said it would go
away eventually, just be glad you didn’t get a direct hit.
It was months later and I couldn’t stop thinking about this
event. I started thinking about what could I do to help educate
and stop these laser strikes. From what I have read most of the
people behind the lasers have no idea of the potential damage
they can cause, they just “want to see how far it will go.” It
was then that I decided to form a non-profit volunteer group
to educate the public and come up with new ways that we can
help reduce or prevent laser strikes on aircraft. I enlisted a
few close friends and we formed a board. Our first order of
business was our name. On March 29th of 2016, we started a
weeklong board meeting, via text message group; first order of
business was the name, we voted on Pilots Against Laser Strikes
or PALs. We became an LLC on May 31st and hope to become
a true non-profit within our first year. To volunteer or donate
please visit our website at www.pilotsagainstlaserstrikes.org.
Disclaimer: Names have been changed to protect the
companies involved.
Pilots Against Laser Strikes is actively seeking volunteers to help us educate the public on the dangers of laser strikes.
Below are several of the openings that we have.
Pilots Against Laser Strikes plans to start an educational campaign that will
hopefully reach around the globe. We intend to do this with volunteer pilots
going to schools, handing out fliers at airports and placing posters at airports
for starters. We encourage all participants to express their ideas to help
further our mission.
