Second worst case would be he calls and gives you a path forward if you're truly interested in Lynden. I know he has done that on occasion. Best case, you get an interview. Small company, so the time from application, to interview, to class is pretty compressed into a couple months, or even a couple weeks at times. Showing an interest now could pay off for a future class too. Currently hiring for an early April class.
Thanks...I have an A+P but not the FE written...not sure if I'd be considered for an FE slot.

I assume they require loading/unloading along with fueling of the aircraft as well?

We carry loadmasters to do the loading and unloading. The FE does do the fueling normally, as well as preflight. Need to have at least the FE writtens done or they won't look at the application. The Chief FE is a DE who can and has done the initial FE ticket, but if you don't have tests done, it doesn't show you really have much interest in playing. That said, almost all of the competitive FE applicants, and from that the new hires, have some Herc experience, either flying or maintaining. Somebody who knows the plane sitting in the middle seat makes everything run better. Of course, there are getting to be fewer and fewer of those as the military sheds their C-130Hs in favor of Js.
