Default What am I doing wrong?

Had my stuff in for a couple years at least.

7500+ TT
4000+ PIC TURB (Jet)
Master’s Degree
Currently 91/135 but have 121 Experience.

I am wondering if my times matrix is screwed up.

Are there head hunters out there or someone in recruiting I could call? I’m really bummed...

Many thanks in advance.

Have you successfully landed the space shuttle on an aircraft carrier at night at least 10 times? If so, you may just get an interview OTS.

My guess.....

Currently part 91/135... nothing wrong with that but out of sheer numbers 121 gets more results.

And 7500hrs is about average..many from the lost decade are over 10,000 with thousands more PIC. Your times are competative, but so are alot of others.

I think AA also has a large flow deal that requires a lot of slots be made avail. to certain applicants.

So I’d have to go back to 121 to get a shot? Don’t think I can take that haircut, unfortunately. My three-plus years in 121 doesn’t count?

I should open a pawn shop or something. Ha ha.

It may help to go somewhere else first, like Kalitta, Omni, etc. Getting a new type rating, big jet, and intntl experience has helped a LOT of pilots get to where they want to go.

PSA, Piedmont, Envoy have direct flow through to AA...you just have to wait.

Also very quick upgrade opportunities, and several hired outside the flow from PSA.
