Piedmont Airlines Pilots Approve New Contract to Fly Regional Jets for American

Pilots at ATP’s recruiting partner Piedmont Airlines, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the new American Airlines Group (AAG), have approved a tentative agreement. This agreement includes plans to refleet the airline with regional jets as well as guarantee opportunities for Piedmont pilots with the airline’s parent company, American Airlines. Today Piedmont Airlines fleet consists of forty four de Havilland Canada Dash 8’s.

“American is pleased pilots at Piedmont Airlines have voted to ratify a tentative agreement that was reached on August 22,” American spokeswoman Martha Thomas said in a statement. “We look forward to working with Piedmont to add jet aircraft to their current fleet of turboprops to connect our customers in regional markets to American’s growing global network.”

Here’s an excerpt from the letter Piedmont president and CEO Steve Farrow wrote to Piedmont employees.

September 16, 2014

Fellow Employees:

I am very pleased to report our pilots have ratified the tentative agreement we reached with the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) with a decisive 77 percent of the vote. As you know, this agreement, which will now become part of our Collective Bargaining Agreement with ALPA, significantly broadens our options for re-fleeting Piedmont Airlines and positions our company for future success in a highly competitive industry.

With this foundation, we are beginning the process of preparing Piedmont for re-fleeting with regional jets. We have already started working with a consultant to add RJs to our certificate. I will share more information on the process in the weeks and months to come.

Piedmont Airlines

Piedmont’s expansion will create new flying jobs that have to be filled in order for them to operate their new aircraft. Piedmont has teamed with ATP for many years to recruit our exceptionally well-trained and highly-qualified graduates and ATP will be sending many more pilots to fly the most advanced new jets. These pilots are are beginning new lucrative airline pilot careers that are waiting for those who begin training now.

Over 450 new airline pilots hired in the last year began their career by training with ATP. Many of those same pilots are being informed that they will be upgrading to Captain in the near future at their airlines. This proves what we have been saying for close to thirty years – In the airlines seniority means everything. Get there first with ATP.

The airlines in the US are reporting their traffic statistics for the month of July, and the good news continues to come in. Airline passengers continue to increase the rate which they fly by more than ten percent in this country compared to last year, and that fact combined with record load factors (the average percentage of seats filled in an airliner) continue to bring record profits to the airline industry.

Expanding Pilot Groups Means a Short Wait for Upgrade to Captain

I recently surveyed our Regional Airline partners about how long it is taking new First Officers to upgrade to Captains at their airline. Across the spectrum of regional airlines the same can be said, upgrade times are coming down. What this means is that the discussion about entry level pay in the regional airlines becomes pointless when you can expect to make Captain, along with the 50% increase in pay, in your second year of flying with your new airline.
