Default IAD Senority

So I'm living in Central Virginia flying 135 and thinking of taking the jump to a regional to hopefully help me make the eventual transition to a major. Looking at airwhisky because it has the best bonus and a IAD base. The question is, how senior is it? I dont mind being on reserve but would hate to be unable to upgrade for 3 years (and stuck with F/O pay).

Well two out of your three can be had easily. It does go to new hires lately (last few bids). And reserve FO there is about a yearish. But upgrading there in under 3 years is not currently possible. You would have to go to CAE to upgrade if you wanted something close.

Thanks for the quick reply. It's "hard" having a good 135 job but knowing that getting to the major airline is probably going to take some sacrifice to get to where you want to be. Even with 4500 hours, 1800 hours twin turbine PIC and a few type ratings, I dont think my resume is going to get any attention without some 121 time.

Doesnít matter whether you have 121 time or not. I bet if you apply, itíll be a matter of minutes before youíre contacted

I ment getting on with a major without 121 time would be a challenge.

Not necessarily
Depends on your time and experience.
I know one who flew corporate for 16 years then applied and was hired at FedEx. Never say never

CA line holder is around 11-12 years seniority in IAD.

Ouch.... Too bad CAE isnt more commutable. I guess thats why its so junior.

I appreciate everyone's help. Not being in the 121 world makes it hard to figure out how it all works sometimes.

Yeah CAE commutability really hurts its recruiting draw. Not that the company concerns themselves with such matters.

Iím in the same boat, only 1700 hours not 4500 lol. Leaving a good 135 is tough, but Iím hoping the bonus and insurance for the family makes up for it.
