Shoot...At K4 you could upgrade less than 3 years. Plus it's a respectable place to work.

Can’t say that about ATI for sure.

Connie Kalitta has never led by being on his knees. Can’t say the same about ATSG.

I know people that did upgrade in less than 3, but I don’t think people hired tomorrow or even 6 months ago will have that opportunity anymore. We have hired a lot of people.

Depends, they are gearing up the training for FME's, we could be getting a bunch more 747's in 2019.

Isn't some of the hiring in anticipation of the 777's? I was told in the interview that they wanted to hire Captains with experience because "you'll be a Captain in two years." I know things change, and people want to do all they can to make their company more attractive, but I don't feel like K4 would outright lie to your face during an interview.

Every rumor they told me became true. Since I was hired in 16, the company doubled. The 777's are a wildcard though, it's not Connie controlling that destiny, it's DHL. No one made any promises as to how many we might get, beyond one. However the rumors I've heard about more 747's I have no reason to doubt.

Pretty simple to do the math. We are training 16 every 3 weeks. There are 7 Captains per 747. 5 per 767/777. On the 747 we have 2 FO’s for every CA. I don’t see how a pilot hired today could expect to be a CA in 2 years. However, I have been wrong lots of times before.
