Airborne-Flight Training 03.14.24: UAL Hiring Pause, APA Wants 65, Piper 100i

United Airlines will pause pilot hiring like its Boeing-family companion Southwest. 

United won't be expanding its fleet as planned, leaving it with a large pilot base following its hiring bonanza in 2021 and beyond. Carriers feel they have enough personnel to weather through the rest of the year, even accounting for attrition. United Airlines' VP of flight operations Mar Champion said that new hire classes would be paused in May and June, possibly to resume sometime in July. The Allied Pilots Association says it believes the pilot supply is "sufficient to meet forecast demand", so the mandatory Part 121 retirement age of 65 should not be changed. “The perceived pilot shortage is over, eliminating any further need for policymakers to consider changing the retirement age,” said APA President Ed Sicher. Piper's trainer-specific iteration of the Pa28 remains popular with Skyborne Airline Academy, with another order for 20 more filling out the manufacturer's order books. The school already has almost a dozen on the books, with an initial order placed in late 2023 as the first element in a multi-year fleet agreement. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
