Airborne 03.06.24: Piper M700 Cert!, Spitir/JetBlue NoGo, SWA Pauses Hires

Piper Aircraft’s new M700 Fury achieved type certification by the FAA on February 29, 2024. 

The swift bird has a maximum cruise speed of 301 knots and a maximum range of 1,424 nautical miles. It is equipped with Pratt & Whitney’s PT6A-52 engine generating 700 shaft horsepower and the latest G3000 cockpit. The would-be merger between JetBlue Airways and Spirit Airlines is done for good, since the carriers fail to see a way where it could be completed within the shareholders' agreed-upon July 24th deadline. Despite their attempt to expediently handle the appeals process after the merger's blockage in court, both airlines feel that "terminating is the best path forward for both companies..." 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. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unlimited!!!
