    This is my best guess.
    Yup and AA may meter their training by skipping a month (or more) of new-hires. That means no Envoy pilots like the past. You answered your own question to me. There is a difference between AA and Envoy though and that’s AA is trying to hire as many as needed, whereas Envoy is succeeding in flowing as few as possible. That means the two are operating against the interests of Envoy pilots who want to flow who get a smaller percentage of the flow pie. As long as Envoy is “metering” the flow, Envoy pilots lose out. Envoy is indeed meeting THEIR goal, but their goal is NOT Envoy pilots goal.

    I agree with this but you made it seem like AA not hitting there hiring goals was a bad thing for the envoy pilots. Over all this is a good thing, for the envoy pilots, as long as AA hires no more than 50/mo. Of course they will have a month or two that is lower. They always have.

    My guess is, you were trying to use this tidbit as, " the sky is falling". But then you realized this actually helps the MQ pilots and had to change the course a bit.

    AA so far is maintaining their estimate of 570 new-hires. Hiring every month except December = 51.8 Pilots with 25 Envoy for 275 pilots. So far nothing good or bad from planned. If AA gets logjammed in the Summer, Envoy May fall below 275 or the monthly average of 25. Last year Envoy fell short of advertised, so nothing new.

    Bottom line is the “plan” or what is advertised is just that and shouldn’t be depended on too heavily.

    Agreed completely.

    A buddy of mine, sent me a screenshot from their website. It shows more than 570 for 2018. He said they are saying anywhere from 730-930. But 730 seems to be the more common answer now. Where did you get the 570 from? 570 would be better.

    He pulled the 570 right out of his ass because he is a LIAR. I would take anything he says and flush it down the toilet because he thrives on spitting out lies and deceit to make it seem Envoy is on the brink of disaster.

    You are correct. My error......it’s 730. They usually run fewer through training in the Summer months and little, if any in December so hows January shaping up to meet the planned 730 with those factors ?

    Not likely.

    But again that’s a good thing.

    Well, if AA hires more then that’s not such a good thing for Envoy pilots, yes ? Worst (or best if you’re an Envoy flow) case scenario then would be 730 pilots with December classes at 61 per month. Did the hire 61 in January and February? If not they are already behind. Best (or worst if you’re an Envoy flow) of 930 and no December classes is 85 per month.

    I guess AA will really have to hit the hiring gas pedal this year going forward.

    With AA's track record, you have to assume only 10 months of hiring at most - usually a break in July as they send the instructors to the line and then the December month off. And if last year is any prediction of this year, take another month say October as well.

    Perhaps they’ll do a bit better with the extra check airman and Sim P’s, but 730 is aggressive. 930 I can’t see.

    This is the difference between some popular personalities. Some apologize and correct themselves while others attach and never admit mistakes.
