I am starting in the MPD program at ASU this fall and was wondering what people think the job market will look like in the summer of 2010 when I graduate?
Agree!! The plane makes sense, it's economical etc.
Hopefully that does'nt happen! I chose between ASU, UND, and Auburn. ASU seemed like the best fit for me then but sometimes I think it wasn't. I don't really want to work for Mesa and will choose others over them!What happens to an MPD guy if Mesa shuts down? I've never been a big fan of MDP but this is seems like a pretty bad time to go that route.
I've heard the 5 year number a couple of places, but I'm confused since the contract clearly says 7 years (13.B.2 A pilot on furlough status who fails to accept recall or who has not been recalled within 7 years will have his name removed from the seniority list.)I'm going to guess that in 2 years the last of the ExpressJet pilots will have just been called back.
And if you think that's unrealistic, consider the union is trying to get recall rights extended from 3 years to 5 years right now...
