My interview at AA was interesting...I had 2k multi fixed, over 4k of total time....Since they don't track rotor time on the application..they were concerned about the discrepancy until the HR portion of the interview--Some of the best points that I made in the interview was from talking about the things I did as a rotor guy!! So no, they don't count rotor time...but if you get past the magic FW mins, the rotor time and the airmanship associated with it were very important to a successful interview!!

Yah I'm ok at pointing out where the rotor side comes in as a plus. Figure the CRM, decision making under fire (literally) should be selling points. I have the a deployment next year, so I'll hit up the apps after that. Thanks for the input guys!

I was told that no they are not the same, because if I get confused on an approach I can just stop and figure it out! You know, on approach... In IMC... Just stop... I just bit my lip and moved on!
I figure JetBlue is the next step. I hate the idea of giving up 1000 hours because I have the rotor smell to me!
I got that a lot from straight FW guys. They have no idea what they are talking about. I flew old-school UH-1s and if anything it only made me a better FW pilot.

To bad you couldn't offer them a chance to try to hover or "fly slower" in IMC. Crap pilots say amazes me sometimes. Almost all fixed wing guy, but can hover. I got to show a Rhino driver what it took to fly a helo once. Good guy, but thought he was a pretty good pilot until.we compared skills in a helo. He went back with his tail between his legs.

AAL mins include the ATP written (in lieu of the ATP ticket), does anyone know if anyone has been hired with just the written and not their ATP?

I hear ya Huey. Dual rated myself and some of the stuff I hear is pretty bizzare...

I also heard that some airlines and/or the military re-classified the powered-lift category so it doesn't count as FW time either. That rules out all the Osprey guys.

Low rent, IMHO.
