Been trying to search around the web without any luck....

What regional airlines have pilots based out of PHL?
What type of equipment do they use?
What routes are flown?

Thanks for any help!

I know Republic has a PHL base. They flew the 170 & 175 up and down the east coast.

Republic also flies E-Jets to the midwest and plains states (Texas, Missouri, Minnesota etc.)

I can only think of Republic and Air Wisconsin that have a PHL pilot base (regional).

Thanks for the info guys!   Air Wisconsin looks perfect since they only have bases in the northeast!

Piedmont has always put bases in the spokes, not the hub (except LGA). Last I checked there was no PHL base.

Definitely no PHL (or any hub) base for Piedmont. The LGA crew base just closed.


Every flight counts.

I stand corrected. I would have assumed there would be one, if only just to save on relatively expensive PHL hotel rooms and to have backup crews available for sick calls.

Not quite sure how UPS qualifies as a regional airline but what do I know. Btw, I am pretty sure that UPS does not have a pilot base in PHL.

Airways, republic, and AWAC are the only companies with a PHL base. Before you think of jumping to AWAC, do some research and you will find it might not be such a great move, especially with only 3 years remaining on their capacity purchase agreement.

You might want to look up the road in Ewr or Lga for alternatives.

Thanks N757ST! Yea, did some research on AWAC and read that. Planning on moving to the Paoli, PA area come march. Only 1.5 to 2 hours by train from EWR, what would be the best airline to apply to with a EWR base? I currently work as a CFII/MEI in Orlando - should have 1100TT with 150 Multi by then (850/65 today). I'm not against commuting - but would like to avoid having to commute to the west coast,SLC, DEN etc.

For an EWR base try
Expressjet http://www.airlinepilotcentral.com/a...major-national-lcc/expressjet.html
Colgan http://www.airlinepilotcentral.com/airlines/regional/colgan_air.html

Would you be able to have a car and drive to LGA/JFK for a base? That would open things up quite considerably

PDT doesn't overnight very many aircraft in Philly, and when it does the hotel sucks and is about the same price as any other overnight. They schedule crews with 3 hour sits throughout the day that get tapped as reserve crews if someone bangs out sick. Generally sick calls don't happen in the middle of a trip, so the reserves at the outstation bases get used (if they're not out flying because the airline is perpetually understaffed).

The only true hub base PDT ever had was CLT, and they closed it '06.

Pinnacle's colgan division fits your bill. Pinnacle also has a base at JFK. Go to flight info and airlinepilotforums.com. There's a lot of info on those sites that is not present here. I don't know what the answer really is though, I moved on from the regionals and am happy I did,
