BRAD TILDEN, CHAIRMAN (2013-12), & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (CEO) ALASKA AIR GROUP (AAG) (2012-05), & PRESIDENT ALASKA AIRLINES (ASA) (2008-12), BECAME THE HEAD OF THE COMBINED ALASKA AIRLINES/VIRGIN USA/ HORIZON AIR GROUP (2016-12).
GARY BECK, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (CEO) & PRESIDENT, SUBSIDIARY HORIZON AIR (2018-01).
Gary is a former Alaska Air (ASA) executive who came out of retirement. Gary replaced Dave Campbell, who announced his resignation in December after a troubled year at Horizon.
Low pilot (FC) pay had created a pilot (FC) shortage so severe that Horizon had to cancel hundreds of flights. Its flight schedule was cut from an average of 360x-daily a year ago to 295x-daily last month.
Recruiting and training about 400 new pilots (FC) this year will have to be a priority for the new leadership. They’ll also oversee the resumption of deliveries of Embraer E175 regional jets for Horizon, scheduled for March.
Beck was VP Flight Operations at (ASA) from 2008 until June 2015. Responsible for ensuring a safe, reliable flight operation, he oversaw 1,600 pilots (FC). Beck also developed (ASA)’s "Greener Skies" initiative (a satellite-based navigation program to make takeoffs and landings at Sea-Tac more fuel-efficient and quieter) and introduced new technology such as pilot (FC) iPads and a paperless flight deck.
