I was just wondering one thing. A new pilot who gets a certain amount of hours, is supposed to start at a regional airline like U.S. airways express or American Eagle. Now after doing some research, American Eagle's training facility is in DFW. Once a First officer for them, say you get assigned to LGA or JFK. Where does a first officer or new pilot expect to fly from a small airport like LGA?

I think hes saying what destinations does a new hire based in NY expect to fly to. My guess is NE airports and destinations from BOS.


Never be afraid to stand up for who you are.

Small airport like LGA? It may be small in size but not in the number of flights....

Doors open, right hand side, next stop is Springfield.

I Guess if you are in a SF-340 or an ATR you will be mainly in the NE. If you are in an ERJ or a CRJ you can go all over the east coast and the mid west. Not sure what American Eagle bases out of JFK or LGA. And LGA is not exactly a small airport and JFK deffinently is not small.

Out of LGA, Eagle flies shuttle flights to DCA and BOS, plus lots of flights to RDU as well. There are flights to YYZ (or is that mainline? LGA-BGR, LGA-YHZ. There are some farther runs such as LGA-JAX, LGA-ATL (this service might be replaced by AA soon), LGA-XNA, LGA-DTW, LGA-CLE, LGA-MSN, LGA-DSM, LGA-CMH LGA-CVG (starting in April). The Eagle LGA and BOS hubs are so close together than their flying meshes, and they have lots and lots of point to point flying in the Midwest, Northeast and up and down the east coast from LGA BOS and JFK. There's quite a bit of flying done from JFK, but this is built into their schedule as if JFK were an outstation. An example would be BOS-JFK-YUL-JFK-CMH (day 1) CMH-RDU-EWR-BOS (day 2). That's not a real schedule (I just made it up), but it is representative of how many of the schedules at Eagle are built in the Northeast.

By the way, most of the Northeast flying is done with the EMJ-135s, though there are some exceptions.

The flights are a mix of mainline flights that are operated with 738/MD80's usually in the mornings and evenings and the other flights are operated with ERJ's
