Found some older threads about centerline thrust, but couldn't find the answer I was looking for. At this point in time, if it's in the multi section of your logbook, the regionals don't care (so I think).

Anyone have any insight on the regionals thoughts on centerline thrust? I.E. Cessna 337

I have never heard of regionals not counting CL thrust. You will need to not have a CL Thrust restriction on your MEL ticket, ie if 337 is the only ME plane you've flown you should have that restriction.

Majors accept CL thrust time from military fast-jet guys, they often have the CL thrust restriction on their commercial ticket, which they need to get removed (nowdays they'll just do it when they get the ATP)

It's legal time. These day, if you pass the legal mins, can fog a mirror, and actually show up for class you are their dream candidate. As rickair says, you need to get the restriction removed if you have it.

A DPE the other day told me that he did a multi commercial checkride for a guy who was already hired by the regionals pending that he got his multi commercial and 25 hours. I think you'll be fine.

They will want standard multi time, too. They probably don't care if it's to ATP standards since they don't care for that law anyways. You could log horse buggy time and they won't care as long as the FAA accepts it towards ATP mins.

Although there is a "centerline thrust restriction" on certificates, and there are "centerline thrust aircraft" according to a specific list kept by the FAA...

...there is no such thing as "centerline thrust" multiengine time in your logbook.

It is just multi time, period.
