SkyWest Airlines' Pilots Accepts Three-Year Pay Agreement

The agreement, for which the strong majority of pilots voted in favor, is effective immediately and runs through mid-2018. The new agreement provides salary increases for all pilots, a substantial increase to first-year pay, guaranteed profit sharing and an increased 401,000 match, as well as a number of enhancements to work rules. The previous agreement became amendable in January 2015.

Federal Aviation Administration Proposes $320,000 Civil Penalty Against SkyWest Airlines

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposed a $320,000 civil penalty against SkyWest Airlines for allegedly operating an aircraft that was not in compliance with federal aviation regulations. The FAA alleges SkyWest failed to inspect certain main landing gear components on four Bombardier CL-600 jets at required intervals for wear that could lead to an unsafe condition or failure of a component. SkyWest allegedly operated the aircraft on more than 6,700 flights when the inspections were overdue. SkyWest has 30 days from receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
