I got a class date of October 1st, for the CTP course on the 175. Its only tentative though. When should I expect a hard yes/no for that class date? And when do you get all your CBT stuff prior to class?

When I was hired in mid May, they offered me a firm class date a few days after offering me the job.

I think the CBTs became available at some point after the ATP CTP course. Even if they were available sooner, I put all my effort into studying for the ATP written.

Don't think I touched a CBT until mid way through indoc.

Btw, when you finish training, enjoy sitting reserve in LGA. New hires are going there in flocks.

ORD is the base I want, so it wonít be long until I can transfer. With ORD getting new 175s every month it seams feasible. Plus, Iíve never been to NYC, I wouldnít mind getting to know that city.

If you enjoy overcrowded, smelly, disconnected, unbelievably expensive, noisy, polluted, dirty places, as well as an overwhelming sense of left leaning political bias and high taxes, you'll love NYC.

I grew up around NYC. Would never go back.

Why do you say that? There's already 89 FOs at LGA, OO does not want LGA to grow much, 50-60 crews tops, all remaining DL flying will be crewed from ORD.
Things are moving pretty quickly and by the time you or the OP finish training you might get something else.

I felt that way too, seeing the rats crawl around the tracks while your subway train is broken down in the middle of a hot and stuffy tunnel will cure that itch.

Ah, the classic, Delta Connection NYC operation crewed from not NYC. That always ends well...

Funny, but I heard OO folks swear blind they'd never do NYC flying, then that they'd never have an NYC base and would staff it elsewhere. NYC on OO first year rates, I don't envy you.

There's usually a long wait for the ERJ, they use it as a recruiting tool. They know that newhires will be willing to wait for a class date, get paid less than a competitor pays, and commute to reserve in LGA and ORD for a year just get on the shiny new jet.

Hello all from Australia,

Just joining in the conversation here and about to have an interview next week.

Oddly enough, I am already type rated on the E170/190 with time on type but was told I would be CRJ if/when successful.

It's also an FAA TR from CAE so was quite surprised.

Looking forward to hear from any other Aussies etc.

Cheers n' beers

Not many openings in ORD as of the last month, but I'm sure you'll be able to get here in no time. Trip quality seems to look better in ORD but you'd probably be able to get some good seniority in LGA faster.

They're going to put you where they want you unless you tell them you're not interested in the CRJ, but then they might not be interested in you (unlikely). I'd still go for the CRJ though. You'll make more money, more diverse flying, seniority moves a lot faster.

FYI -- I decided to go another direction and sent a letter today that should result in an open slot for the October 1 ERJ class.

If you are waiting and available, maybe reach out to your recruiter?

Good luck.
