What do you guys think of this? I'm currently at UND and I was wondering if this is worth pursuing.

Wouldn't hurt, definitely keep your options open though. Maybe I didn't see any of the fine print, but it doesn't look like you would be obligated in anyway to sunny.
Ask about getting the ATP-CTP done.
Regionals have hiring bonuses and faster upgrade...might be worth looking into as well.

Don't do it. It's a classic bait and switch scheme. Upgrades have slowed significantly. You can make more at the regionals. The pass program is a joke. The work rules are a joke. Reserve guys have 10 days off a month. Go spend a couple years in the regionals and get hired by a real airline.
