Ground Schools for 2015

#1 Post by pacman007 » Mon Jun 22, 2015 9:39 am

heard rumblings of more ground schools added this year for WJ. Which means more outside hires? anyone know the numbers and how many outside pilots they will take this year?

DaveP posted in the other wj/encore hiring thread a few weeks back regarding planned GS for the year. 1 in August 2 in October. Not sure if that's changed since. Everyone coming from flow and existing pool.

Hi there
We ended up adding an extra class and bumping some if the planned class sizes from 8 to ten.
(12 additional pilots needed)
Cheers!

Hi there.

I was wondering if we could get an update on the status of the current WJ pool. The last update in the other thread was 21 pilots with 12 to be used this year. With the extra class and the increase in some of the class sizes how does this sit now? Is the WJ pool growing or is the idea to use the current members and then just have the Encore pool moving forward aiming towards 100% flow through?

Thank you
