I don't think so b/c I got a call for an interview last week with no 121 time.

military A code is treated as 121 PIC there

I remember reading on the website that they will take military time instead of 121, but didn't know if you could get in without either...

I doubt it...most of the people that I know that have gotten interviews all had a significant amount of PIC time. Most had been Regional Capts for a while or were military. I don't see why they wouldn't look at corporate though...just probably have to have a significant amount over 500hrs. I've always heard that corporate time was valued as well but was somewhat hard to verify. A fractional might be a different story though. Good luck

No need to spend money or time building qualifications. Just wait. The bar keeps getting lower. Let the mins come to you. I can see the MPL on the horizon. No experience needed!

Soon very soon the equilibrium the airlines seek will be attained. Max Capt pay 75K wide body; 50K narrow. 1000 block per year and 3500 hours away from home. No retirement? No problem; Fly until you die.

You did say all you cared about was a flying job right? Come right this way and welcome aboard!

I know a few people that got hired there without an ATP or any PIC. And a few more that got hired with between 100 and 300 turbine PIC.

It all depends on who you know. If you know the right person then minimums don't apply.
