No. Not really. Around 6/month, although I hear there is one more class for 2006 (although its filled up) and then the next will be 1Q 2007.

That seriously varies. It could be yes, it could be no. You can probably get it within a few months though, depending on attrition and vacancy awards.

Depends on you resume, quals, how much they are hiring. With hiring slowed, I would think it would take awhile unless you get someone to walk it in or stand out in some way.

No idea. I pretty much though all airlines wanted active pilots. One thing - they do like former 121/135 guys so you'd stand out in this respect.

Unless you know somebody or Have a CRJ type it will take a very long time to hear back. I know some people that have sent there stuff in over 7 months ago and havent heard anything. I am current 121 and havent heard anything for months. Like other people have said, they are not hiring a whole lot anymore and they like internal recs. If they get the midwest flying that could change though.

good luck!

Sorry to rain on the parade but from what I hear, they are snatching up UND graduates like crazy...Also if you are a UND grad they will take you at 500/50 with the CRJ course...So I really don't know whats going on with other peoples apps because from what I hear, they are still hiring.

I didn't go to UND and had no one on the inside, but I sent in an application last spring... had an interview within 3 weeks and got the offer the very next day. There aren't currently any classes planned until 2007, but we are still accepting resumes and interviewing. An internal reccomendation goes a really long way here... possibly further than flight time.

Um... no, sorry for the mis-communication. My interview was June 6th and I started class on the 26th of June. I finished OE mid September and now I'm livin' the dream on reserve.
