Default Trans Air 737 info???

Does anybody have any info on the Trans Air 737 position? I'm specifically trying to see if one could commute from the lower 48? Or do you have to live in Hawaii? Any info would be great. Feel free to PM me as well.

Such a bad idea. 5-6 hour commute? If you want to stay on mainland then get a job on the mainland. Keep it simple. 737 rating is nothing to wet your pants over and kill yourself with a tough commute. Besides you don’t build up very much time with .4 hour trips in the middle of the night.

Good point. Though I wouldn't be doing it to "build time" per say. I'm more looking at it to get some PIC time. But you're right... probably not worth the commute time either.

It's a two year training bond they don't tell you about. They had some housing for thirty days to get you settled but the Middle Eastern owner took that away. They will work you to death too and you will be threatened a lot. Just do some past research on Transair. Commuting to HNL would be difficult as they don't have much access to jumpseats on real airlines. I think it would be hit and miss getting to HNL.


Do you also happen to know how expensive AND BLOODY NOISY, HNL is. You're home every night for day sleep, rinse and repeat. It's hell on the body!

Thank you for the insight. All things that I did not consider when I saw the job posting.
