  • We would like to announce that next month, on August 2 from 900 – 1500 CT, a consultant from T. Rowe Price will be available in the ORD crew room to answer pilot questions about their retirement plans and the options they have available. Be sure to make time to take advantage of this free resource available to all of our pilots.
  • The Air Wisconsin MEC has contracted the University of New Hampshire to conduct pilot polling on behalf of your MEC. This poll will begin tomorrow, Thursday July 21 and will run for 7 days. UNH survey operators will call approximately 150 Air Wisconsin pilots to gather a scientific sampling of our pilot group representing all categories of domiciles, seniority, and position.
  • Earlier this month, the ARW MEC sent out an email addressing the ongoing CRJ700 and CRJ900 training. As previously stated, senior FOs will receive differences training that will qualify them to operate both aircraft. This training is voluntary. Unlike our normal training events though, there has not been a bidding process for training on the CRJ700 and CRJ900.

  • The MEC would like to remind pilots that LOA 49 is in full effect. Paychecks today should reflect the mid-contract raises as well as the captain upgrade and retention bonuses. Commuter hotels can now be approved under the guidelines of LOA 49. We encourage everyone to request their commuter hotels as far in advance as possible.
  • The way we login to MyIDTravel has changed! Going forward, to create a jumpseat listing for carriers that use MyIDTravel (such as American, JetBlue, and Southwest), Air Wisconsin pilots will need to use to login. This link will take you to the Air Wisconsin Single-Sign-On (SSO) portal, the same place we sign in to CSS,, and webmail.
  • Some airlines are intent on diverting attention away from their failure to effectively manage air service operations as post-pandemic travel resumes. They're pushing the false “pilot shortage” narrative along with reckless solutions—such as dialing back pilot qualification requirements and now seeking to raise the mandatory retirement age for U.S. airline pilots above age 65. Raising the retirement age will not increase the supply of pilots. In fact, increasing the retirement age will displace pilots and introduce risk into the aviation system.
  • Last week the MEC voted unanimously to approve a new Letter of Agreement incentivizing voluntary upgrades and improving overall quality of life for everyone at the airline. In this email we’d like to explain the details of this new LOA, LOA 49. You can read the full text of the LOA here:
  • The MEC held a special meeting recently and voted to approve LOA 49 which ratifies the previously announced AIP. Full details are found in today’s separate LOA 49 communication with explanations, charts, and the attached LOA. Highlights include competitive pay raises for all pilots, captain upgrade and retention bonuses, commuter hotels and reserve pilot benefits.
