American Eagle / Envoy Air

Latest News

For those of us that have been in this industry a long time, we clearly understand the cycles.
After a period of change and uncertainty, Im pleased to see a much more positive outlook
here at Envoy.

Envoy to Retain More CRJ-700 Flying: Pedro's announcement today means that we will
transfer 12 instead of 18 CRJ-700s to PSA during 2015. Envoy will continue to fly the
remaining fleet of 35 CRJ-700s until transfers to PSA resume in of the second half of 2016.
This translates into an additional 30 Captain positions, bringing our forecasted requirement
for Captain upgrades between now and the end of 2016 to around 230. This is terrific news,
expect a new vacancy bid shortly to cover these new flying requirements.

Large Cabin E175: June 1, we reached a major milestone in the launch of the E175, with
all of our Flight Operating Manuals submitted to the FAA for approval. This puts us well
underway for our first aircraft acceptance scheduled for November of this year and on
course for us to operate a fleet of 28 two-class E175s by year end 2016. Initial pilot awards
are complete and training is scheduled to begin in late August.

Pilot Flow to American: Since January 2013, Envoy has successfully advanced 481 pilots
to American Airlines, strictly seniority based with no additional interview requirement. We
project that an additional 100 pilots will move to American by year end and we expect
approximately the same rate of flow throughout 2016.

Time to Captain: A new hire at Envoy today is projected to make Captain at Envoy within
2.5 years and is projected to flow through to American within 6 years of date of hire.

Here we go! The momentum is building.
