Even though it does not have regulatory approval to fly, Virgin America is getting ready to hire the first 6 flight attendants for the new airline. With help from Governor Arnold Swartzenegger, Virgin America is acting confident that all their regulatory approvals will pass in the near future.
Virgin America Inc. is about to hire the first of roughly 100 pilots it wants to add in 2006 as the startup airline continues preparations to start flying this year.
The Burlingame-based airline said it will begin by hiring six pilots. Those six need to be veteran flyers because they will help Virgin America as it seeks necessary regulatory approvals. Virgin America said it is reviewing pilot resumes and will make job offers around March 1. Training will start in April. via San Francisco Business Times:.
