Current regional CRJ Captain...would like some relevant info on the FedEx feeder ops in the PNW, FedEx is the ultimate goal.

Street CA and easy commute to work (live in GEG) with similar pay ($90/hr.) would pique my interest.

Is the purple runway even a legit program that actually gets guys in at FedEx or more of a ploy to keep guys at the feeder?

Also never flown freight, but I like the mission, a lot. Recently attended the FedEx pilot expo in Pensacola and could not be more impressed (yes I realize this is not FedEx Express).

Thanks in advance for any useful info...

How likely would it be to get hired for the TUL base? Iím currently a regional CA and have ATR experience.

You could easily hold TUL as a Captain or FO right now.

The books of the ancients tell of The One who desires to live in Tulsa. Yay, so it was written. We have found him! Hallelujah! Hossanah!

Stay at your regional and keep applying to FedEx. The flow program is not really a flow and would take forever to get an interview. Plus you'll not make the same money and probably won't be in geg.

There is no flow agreement on the Ohana side , it's just an guaranteed interview with a lot of stipulations, you'd be better applying on your own. Empire is not a place you would want to come.
