I believe this would be devastating for the pilot group.

Re: Jazz/encore

With the biggest hiring boom since WW2 for pilots....why not do both. Plus you'll need 2 jobs to make up for the deep salary cuts and concessions that union (rhymes with 'alfalfa') made their membership sign.

Yeah...100 percent for sure do both.

You're welcome :smt045

My belief is that the noise complaints should generate a flag on your property deed & the number of complaints available to the prospective new owner. If you complain about noise from any form of transportation you should be banned from using that form for travel for life. Daryl First paragraph is ...
