I believe I qualify to enter my application with UPS. I just don't have the preferred qualification of 1000 hours PIC in fixed wing jet and/or fixed wing ME turboprop.

It don't believe I qualify to enter my information into Pilot Credentials for FedEx. I do not have at least 1500 hours total time as PIC or SIC in multi-engine turbo-prop or jet A/C or combination thereof. I can click yes for every other question, just not that one. I click no because I believe that is the correct answer. The system tells me thanks for playing and come back when you meet the requirements.

Hours:
50-SE piston (CIV)
2800-SE turbo-prop, 1400 PIC (MIL)
105-ME turbo-prop SIC (MIL)
70-ME Jet, 40 PIC (MIL)
400-SE Jet, 360 PIC (MIL)

ME-ATP, CFII, Mil evaluator, over 100 hrs in the last year.

I would like some opinions especially if they are contrary to what I believe. Thanks.

I exceeded the requirements and got a canned TBNT email sent to me 25 minutes after I submitted the application... on a weekend. Now it says "on file" and won't let me update my times or any other qualifications I have gained. Anyone else with this problem?

UPS only lets you update once a year I believe. If you read their forums I think it resets Jan 1st. I got the same TBNT email and on file also but I'm still working towards my 1000PIC jet.

My UPS app shows “Active” and still allows me access to update flight times.....

Sorry. Should have been more specific. If it says on file, this basically means no thanks, try again in a year. Active means they are interested and want you to keep your information up to date and a current year application done. (All this info you can read on the UPS current hiring thread)

I filled mine out with the info listed above and got the immediate TBNT email also. Guess I have to wait until next year and update maybe. I am severely lacking multi and jet time.
I guess they are not fans of single engine turboprop time. Oh well.
