Airborne-Flight Training 03.07.24: SWA Retreats, CBP Hires, Boeing Shorts Pilots

A memo from Southwest Airlines has begun circulating out on the web describing the company's plans to halt all hiring through the rest of the calendar year, stating that the company's current size is sufficient for anticipated growth and demand.

SWA has already begun rescinding conditional job offers to pilots in its pipeline, with water cooler talk sounding as if those with class dates past April are more likely to be canceled. CBP has reported that their Direct-Hire Authority to hire 200 air interdiction agents has been extended through Jan. 30, 2026. The air interdiction agent position is open to pilots with a minimum of 1,500 flight hours (500 hours can be waived), including 250 pilot-in-command, 75 hours of instrument time, and 75 nighttime hours. The union for Flight Technical and Safety Pilots took issue with Boeing's Flight Operations Group, citing poor pay scales relative to other pilot groups of similar importance at the company. The group checked in on a report drafted by the FAA as it works through safety and production issues at Boeing corporate, noting a "disconnect between public commitments to safety and quality made by senior executives at Boeing and the situations faced by Boeing employees in the workplace." All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
