American Airlines to Recall 40 Pilots per Month

Young pilots are often told that the Aviation Community is very small, and like that game, The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, we are all connected somehow. A few of the Pilots that I am connected to received good news that American Airlines has sent out recall notices to furloughed AA pilots asking them to come back and fly for American.

The recall notice stated that “American Airlines plans to recall approximately 40 pilots per month for the foreseeable future. The first recall class is scheduled to begin on Jan. 9, 2013.”

That is great news for a lot of furloughed pilots and is in line with American’s report that they intend to hire over 2500 new pilots over the next 5 years.
