I personally came to xjt so I can fly with experienced captains on the type, not the guys trying to figure it out after flying it for 300-1000h in some cases.
For me that 170 award would probably not be a welcomed thing.
That's one smart pilot right there! I'd wager that a 170/190 type rating probably won't be of much use in this country anyways after AA and Jetblue dump their 190s if the majors/LCCs are someone's ultimate goal . . . overseas is a different story.

My apologies in advance for asking this question and derailing the thread a little . . . . which one of the XJT bases has the most experienced captains yet is junior enough on the FO side to be attainable right after initial training?
