ALPA/Mesaba Pilots Sue Employer for Alleged Mishandling of 401(k) Funds

Mesaba Airlines pilots have filed a lawsuit against their employer for the mishandling of contributions to their individual 401(k) retirement plans. According to documents filed with U.S. District court in Minneapolis today, the pilots allege Mesaba withheld money from their paychecks that was earmarked for their 401(k)s, but never actually deposited the money into the pilots' retirement accounts. "Mesaba has been deducting money from our paychecks that was supposed to go into our 401(k) accounts, but instead they've kept the money in the company's coffers," said Kris Pierson, Mesaba pilot and ALPA spokesman. In addition, the lawsuit alleges that Mesaba failed to make all of the matching contributions required under the plan, made certain other contributions outside of the l

ANN Names New Managing Editor

Arturo Weiss Joins ANN When we first announced that we would be searching for a new Senior Editor some weeks ago, we were unprepared for the quantity and quality of the resumes we received, in response. We were impressed and humbled at the kind of people who spoke of an interest in joining the Aviation World's Most Dynamic DAILY News Service. While the quality of many of the people who applied was pretty impressive, so were the backgrounds and work experience claimed by many. ANN covers the entire aviation and aerospace world, so someone with an extensive background in a number of aero-disciplines was just what the flight surgeon ordered. Finally; temperament and personality is a big deal here at ANN... we work REALLY hard here... so working alongside staffer

Heading Into ANN's Fifth Year... How Do You (Adequately) Say Thanks?

Happy New Year! Not a day goes past without my receiving emails or phone calls from ANN readers expressing their thanks for what we bring to you each and every day. Many of these communication come from people who have read ANN since its inception and many more from those who have been reading me, personally, since my print days with US Aviator and or even further back to Air Progress, Sport Pilot and beyond... Many of you know about the road that we've taken on this journey and how the trip has not always been the most joyful pursuit one can take on... and that it has been, at times, difficult if not treacherous. We've been tested... time and time again. We've gotten what seems like more than our fair share of the hard breaks, the (seemingly) impossible tasks, and the

Seattle Area Pilots: Watch Out For Short-Notice TFR Near Space Needle

Despite the fact that it took some hours to appear on the FAA TFR web site (showing up some time after 2000 EST), we understand (via our friends at AOPA) that the FAA has issued a very last-minute temporary flight restriction for New Year's Eve night in Seattle. The NOTAM was published after 6 p.m. EST, less than six hours before the TFR was to go into effect. In the past, AOPA has (justifiably) argued that the FAA must give pilots adequate notice of flight restrictions — not doing so sets pilots up for unintentional violations. The 1-nm-radius restricted area is centered on the Space Needle and extends up to 3,000 feet. It will be in effect from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. local.
