Sounds good, thank you very much.

What aircraft will I likely get, I’m hoping on A220 based somewhere in the N East. I believe your placed based on a class lottery. Can you swap if someone else is keen to do so. Thank you so much.
Sent you a PM mate

Anyone know what training schedule looks like starting in April here? Interviewed end of Dec, got the offer like a week or two later, they stuck me in a class start of April (probably got in quick because of previous 121 experience and a bunch of PIC turbine) they told me time line is about 7 weeks from start to finish. Assuming that's accurate how long are ya'll taking to get on OE after checkride? Also anyone have experience here jumping from breeze to a major? I'm hoping like everyone else to be on that grind sooner than later, had my apps in a few months now but it seems harder to get a call when you're a 91/135 guy.

Default Part 135

Gotta question, does 135 experience on a Saab 340, or jetstream as a copilot count towards the 1000hrs to go in as a captain

No. Certain 135 and 91K counts, but it must be PIC. You can credit up to 500 hours of certain mil flight time.

The only SIC which counts is US 121.

Are the A220 guys willing to trade trips with guys having to commute? I'd like to work here but a big issue is the spotty pairings. If guys are willing, can you stack trips together so you can fly at least 4 days straight?

the whole commutability issue stems from the fact that the two day trips all start roughly around 6am and return to base around 10pm. So it’s legally impossible to stack 2 two day trips together.

Hi everyone, long time lurker, first time poster here.

Does anyone know how junior PVD and BDL are? It also looks like they’re not hiring FOs at the moment, but how long are upgrade times typically? And I saw it asked a few times here, but does anyone know when they might resume FO hiring? I believe I more than meet the requirements of 121.436(a)(3), but don’t have the “Group II transport category aircraft” time they require for the Direct-Entry Captain positions.

Thanks in advance!
