I am still working towards my RATP minimums and should be done by March. My interview with Skywest is on Feb, I'm curious about how things work out after the interview. You then get a date to go to ATP-CTP training, how long is that? then from what I understand you do more training before you start off flying on reserve? How long does it take to go from the interview to being officially hired and flying aircraft?

Interview now and youll probably get a class date for April and A ctp date for early april. You complete CTP in 4 days or so, then you start class soon after (may a week or so) training is like 6-8 weeks in SLC or DEN, then you have a week - three weeks waiting for IOE, then you complete two 4 day IOE trips and a line check, then you're cut loose into reserve life. IOE is basically on the job training. So 2-2.5 months to get from setting foot in class to flying the real thing, and then one more month or less to being cut loose into the system.

I interviewed 11/18 and was hired 11/21. Did ATP-CTP 10-16 Dec paid for by SkyWest including transportation and lodging. Took my ATP Written after that but before starting indoc/GS/sims on 28 Dec. Due to finish 22 Feb with my ATP after check ride in the ERJ sim. I start IOE after that. Reserve to follow.

Hope Iím not hijacking this thread, but can we also include how long it took from application to interview? I just applied and would like to get an idea of the whole timeline too. Thanks.

I'll add another question. How soon can someone interview before reaching ATP mins?. Is 1200h too soon?. I'd like to get an April class hence my early Interview plans.

Got a call to interview less than a week after I applied. Two weeks from invitation to interview, which I spent studying the material in this photo full time. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181231/14c3b4887c677d6eaffc7aee427ad7bb.jpg

I don't think Skywest will interview you if you don't have a multi-commercial.

As long as you are within 4 months of getting all your ratings you should be OK.

the way i'm reading it... he doesn't even have the commercial single yet.
I doubt you would get an email without a commercial, but I could be wrong.

I remember back in early 2000 it was impossible to get a job with a regional. Flying 135 night bank freight single pilot in a crappy 402 was such a privilege back then

Any advice on studying, I've studied the books and materials they emailed. I'm asking cause I completely botched it with PSA specially on the scenario based questions.. I asked what was wrong and they said attention to detail, which I completely agree, but I feel like reading books wont fix that and I really want to join skywest. Any advice on how to study more efficiently?
Thanks

How long would it take to hold a line out of KLAX right outta training? Would it be faster on the CRJ or ERJ? Also, which training takes longer? CRJ or ERJ? Thanks in advance.

West coast bases are super senior... you'll end up in DTW, ORD or somewhere junior. IDK about ERJ

SkyWest website has domicile seniority dates under Pilot Careers. ERJ FOs can hope for SAN but not much else soon on the west coast. You will sit reserve in LGA or ORD for a few months at first no matter what.

Senior CAs are dug in like ticks at the west coast bases.
