Pilots choose Mesa because of the real opportunities that exist for both experienced pilots and newcomers to the industry. Mesa's training, job security and upgrade times are second to none. Since our latest expansion began in the Spring of 2013, we have hired over 8000 pilots and upgraded more than 380. A testament to our success and future opportunities -- is the fact that -- while our growth is among the fastest in the industry, our pilot attrition is among the lowest.

When compared to sign-on bonuses now offered by some carriers; it's important to know our upgrades beat the value of their bonus time and again. Over a 5-year period our pilots, on average, will have upgraded before year 3. This means, unlike other carriers who can't offer upgrades for 7 or more years; our pilots will make nearly $70,000 more than their peers elsewhere.
