Currently scheduled for the September 4th class, so I was just wondering if anyone who started Indoc recently had any updated info or tips. Thanks in advance!

Read the FOM and do the workbook they issue you. Donít waste your time with quizlet crap on the internet. Half of it is wrong or not on the test.

One other thing I recommend for systems is the crj700 study guide by Nathan Leming. Great resource

From one of your future captains, welcome aboard.

Donít study ahead

Only study what they give you (there are some flash card quizlets out there, make sure itís a Endeavor one though)

Make study groups

Take breaks on weekends, donít burn yourself out, have fun, Uber to Dinkeytown around U of M on weekends for some cold ones.

Be prepared for tests. Study at least 5 days a week. A couple hours after class will prepare you more than youíd think. But make sure you keep some downtime on weekends or youíll go crazy.

Have fun and donít over stress yourself, lots of people before you have made it , have a good attitude and theyíll work with you if you need extra help.


Attitude attitude attitude is the name of the game. Do what they ask of you and youíll be flying jetzz in no time. Seriously tho, just be prepared and have fun, itís a long stressful couple of Monthes but itís worth it. Youíll have a good time here.

Would anyone familiar / from a relatively recent class be able to provide a breakdown of the training footprint?

The 900 really has no delay now. Expect a non stop sequence from indoc to LOE.

The 200 has more of a back up, probably 3-4 week delay for OE.

Are the 200 and 900 different bids? Are they different type ratings?

Same type rating different bids and pay scales.

Unless the training deptartment has caught up, then never mind me, Iíve heard more of a 6-7 week delay for OE on the deuce

On the 200, 4/9 Hire dates are being called for OE right now. LOE dates in the 7/7 time frame.

Took me exactly 60 days from day 1 indoc to LOE. I was doing IOE 5 days later on the 900. Problem is now itís just come to a complete slow down for reserve life on the 900.

Oh boy. I want the 200 for more flying / easier to get ATL. I suppose Iíll just have to ride it out if I get it. Any idea if itís getting shorter or longer?

This is a temporary issue created by movement that was awarded in late 2017 and should be resolved by the time you get to training.
