Regional Airline Contract Boxes In New Pilot Hires

A professional takes a look at new conditions of employment for some commercial pilots.

Boeing 737 pilot Sam Weigel goes through the details of this legal agreement from a professional’s perspective—why it’s making a stir in the pilot community, and what it ultimately will mean for future hiring.
