My question is this: Is most everyone who is getting interviewed/hired at SWA currently flying in the left seat of something? Are my chances of getting interviewed/hired by SWA slim-to-none since I'm not currently flying in the left seat? Any info. would be greatly appreciated.
I went to the SWA pilot open house in June. One of the things that was mentioned by the recruiter is that they like to see recent
PIC time. I'm in the same boat as you. Nearly 1800 PIC turbine, but none in the last year and a half since I was displaced from 737 captain. Unless I change jobs, there's no hope for me to get anymore PIC turbine time for a long time. I still update, but I'll be suprised if I get the call.
