When is the 767 class scheduled for? Before or after the New Year?

They told us they have a new hire class for 767 plan for 2 pilots in Dec and 4 in Jan. However, no one has heard if anyone has actually interviewed or been hired. currently there is vacancy of 8 FOs in MIA


If you get 767 base in Miami, do they put you up in a hotel while at Boeing training in Miami?
NAC is only planning to hire for the 767 and MIA is the only 767 base right now. So if you get hired you will be based in MIA. Hotel is paid for until you finish IOE. Training is done at Boeing.

How many hours a month are guys flying and/or crediting?
line are built to approx 90 hrs.


Do they have a seatlock if you want to switch to the 737 or if you get assigned the 737 in Hawaii can you bid 767?
We have 2 different certificates. The 737s in Hawaii are under their own certificate and currently do their own hiring. That being said, we have one seniority list so if you were hired by HNL you could bid for 767. But since NAC is currently hiring directly for 767 , if that is what you want just apply at NAC.
There is seat lock language in the CBA.


Line bidding or PBS?
line bidding, with SAP

How easy is it to drop or pickup flying?
right now pick up is easy since we are short of pilots. currently they will not let a straight drop but you can trade.

How often are you staying in hotels?
currently we only have 1 trip per week that is an RON
If you live in MIA you will be home after every trip. If you don't, you will need a crash pad.


Why do guys leave? Schedule, QOL?
a few have left in last year. why, everyone has their own reasons

Where do they leave to?
people in Hawaii tend to go to Hawaiian
others , Jet Blue, UPS, American, etc

APC shows a min grnte of 65hrs @ 84hr 1st yr FO, is this accurate?

What are upgrade times running if you already have your 1000hrs?

How are the hotels for overnights and training?

What kinda timeframe should I expect to start training if I apply today?

Do I need to reach out to a recruiter?

it is 87 now

you will not upgrade soon, we only have 2 airplanes and there are no CA vacancies. but currently 8 FO vacancies

How are the hotels for overnights and training?
very good, stay at Marriott Residence Inn , Doral for training. you get to keep all your Marriott points

What kinda timeframe should I expect to start training if I apply today?
if you apply today, first you need to get hired.then worry about when you start. IMHO they need to start training pilots yesterday, and no word if they have hired anyone but we did hear some have interviewed. if you get interview just ask that question.

Do I need to reach out to a recruiter
can't hurt

we heard some pilots have been interviewed and 1 guy i know got a call and was told TBNT. He was told they are looking for pilots with wide body time. However I also heard that is not a requirement just prefered, IMHO if you live in MIA, they would like that.

Thanks

Aloha Air Cargo wouldn’t be advertising for direct entry 737 captains. That would most likely be Transair. Be very careful with that company.

NAC/Aloha just finished awarding a vacancy bid.

After the awards, there are currently 4 slots open in HNL on 737 for Aloha side of the house.

4 on 737 in ANC and 4 slots for 767 in MIA for the NAC side.

Also 4 new hires started 767 training on Jan 7

We were told a new hiring procedure is being developed.

I was wondering if anyone could help me find some contact info for a recruiter or should I just stop in the office next time I’m in ANC?
