I hear Republic has a really high wash out rate, and it makes me second guess whether or not to choose them.

I am fairly new. I finished training end of September. Been out on the line since. My class had washouts

Let me assure you right now

Republics training department is good. And they WILL get you extra training If you need it. But If you got 4 extra flat panel GFS sessions and you still barely get off the gate in 45 minutes as a pair.....then when you get to sim 2 and canít even complete the entire thing the company is gonna have to let you go.

The washouts are examples like that. Itís always either they didnít put in the work needed whatsoever, or they just simply were not cut out for this kind of training environment, and If you donít pass training you wonít survive the line.

Our training failure rate for initial is very close to other regionals. You will get multiple chances, but honestly itís up to you. By no means are we trying to fail a new hire out, but we have to maintain the standard. Many feel entitled to the job, and donít apply themselves. Thatís a big mistake, because they will terminate you.

Don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised at all. With how backed up SIMs are and the fact that they are flooded with new applicants and trainees, they can afford to be more selective.



btw, wash out rates and training failures are not made public. The only way we know is from other people in their class posting it on here or hearing about it on the line.

Not entirely true, but you better have a good excuse for extra training. Donít show up unprepared for training. I would have flow down for GFS 1, because not knowing your flows will increase to to get off the gate.


BTW the training department has definitely became more strict in the past 12 months. Itís not just intitial qual, but also continuing qual as well. As other posters have said, we have classes backed up, so they can be very strict.

Just finished training and now on the line. Youíll pass if you put the effort in... if you donít, you wonít make it through. Easy as that. They wonít baby you through training, itís the real world now. Youíre given the tools to succeed, itíll be up to you to use them. I wouldnít let a washout rate turn you away, itís a great company to work for and I love it here.

My initial class started with 18. 2 were let go due to PRIA/background check issues. 1 withdrew due to personal issues. The 15 who remained all passed with no additional sims, and nobody has left since (with the exception of an ex-military guy who went to Southwest.)

What Iím hearing from current instructors is this:

If you are disciplined, and put in the work, youíll pass. If you goof off at home during the self-study portion, you wonít.

Hope that helps shed some light on things.

I went through a couple years ago for initial...out of 20 in my class 2 or 3 didnít make it. The guys that struggled seemed to be the ones that left town on the weekends instead of studying or left class with a ton of questions and just seemed kinda clueless about everything. If you donít understand something, speak up!! The instructors have all been great, and will answer your questions. As others said, they arenít there to spoon feed or pick up slack when you arenít putting in the effort though.

Donít text in class, take notes, study hard during your free time, donít leave town every day you have off, and thereís little reason why you shouldnít do well. Itís not rocket science..I wasnít a straight A student and I did ok, just had to put twice the effort in. Also donít show up to day one of sims without knowing flows or you will have 10x tougher time while youíre fumbling around trying to figure out your flows on top of other things.

Donít sweat the washout unless youíre the type that has bad study habits. Overall I think itís been a very fair process even recurrent.

If you have to chose a regional based on washout rate rumors and you're scared you won't make it through go to Mesa. Otherwise if you study hard, commit the time and effort it takes, and really dedicate yourself to training for a couple months you'll be fine.

The instructors and training at Republic are second to none. From indoc, to the new EFPT and sims, there are so many tools in place here to help pilots succeed.
