Shhh, and the espresso machine for those ultra-long haul flights...and that machine is a no-go item if it isn't working...

One time, a wise-F/E(aren't they all? ) commented on my nicely ironed uniform shirt. I asked him if he had time to iron his and his response was, Why? That's why we have uniform jackets.. lol I miss those guys!

OK, trying to remember all the good info in the last 606 pages, did my best with the search function, and I *think* I have a question that hasn't been asked yet. :-)

I'm a F-16/UAV guy getting ready to retire. I just got my ATP along with a B-737 type from Higher Power last week (thanks GI Bill) and am working on the PAQ.

Question - Can I claim B-737 on the PAQ with just the Level C sim time?

Thanks much, and look forward to burning some beef on the grill with y'all!

you can claim the type rating.... but you have no time in type.

I didn't put it on my PAQ, as I haven't flown it, even though I have the type rating from Higher Power also.

Good luck, I'm sure you're studying the ATP stuff just the same as I in case the call comes.

Just a word of advice for the guys who have gone to get there 737 type or who are thinking about going to get their 737 type. Be extremely careful with that type rating you could get labeled as a southwest guy. Granted there is nothing wrong with being label as a southwest guy they are great pilot group over there. But be ready to explain why you got that kind of type and expect to be asked about going to southwest and be extremely adamant about not going to southwest. I learned over my short lifetime that the 73 type is bad news with all the other airlines out there it like you going to having a strike on you before you even start to bat. Now granted, you can knock the interview out the park an still get the job but realize your walking in with strike one.

My partner during initial last summer did the same thing for his ATP. At least for Atlas, be able to explain it during the interview.

Especially if you have the type-rating and no actual pilot time that you can show in your logbooks...

I'm an HPA grad and zero time in type. Was asked about it in the interview. PM me if you would like to know my position on it. I was hired as many others have. I went through the contracted Boeing training for Atlas...HPA facilities, people, and training BLEW Boeing out of the water. A 737 type from HPA is nothing to be afraid of sharing - I'm still proud of it.
