Colgan is a viable option for you. The upgrade times have fluctuated over the past 3 years from 2 years down to 12 months. there are some guys in training for upgrade right now that have not had a yearly FO PC. However the boom is over for now. I predict the upgrade will be more like 18 months. A factor driving this in my opinion is the fact that 1 or 2 out of a class about 6 or 8 has been sent home somtimes prior to the checkride. The fact is that low time guys need to be sharp if they plan to upgrade fast. It has forced Colgan to hire "Street Captains" and there is an availibility of SAAB typed folks out there with the likes of Chicago Express and Eagle.

Colgan is a great place and if Quality of life is important to you I reccomend it. However, that is if you live at your base. If you commute it could seem like a bad quality of life.
