As far as the 777 is concerned, it's probably more likely you'll get that. But some 767 FO's were awarded 777 CA on the last bid so they will have to replace those people.
Awesome thanks, so are they hiring for growth or just pure attrition?

I believe with the addition of 2 777s it would be for both growth and attrition. I think it puts the fleet at a net +1.

Is the 1000 pic include time in C172s, or is it all 121/135 pic?

So if one did the phone interview with DC back in September and got the nod that your package was sent to FltOps with approval, how long until youre contacted to come to Tulsa? Starting to think my package was lost. I hate when I lose my package.

Just a question, do turboprop 135 guys have a chance for FO spot even without 121 experience? like b1900 typed 135 PIC, transition to a wide body jet even without jet time? or do they accept guys for FO position even with 121 time?
thank you.

I think at this point Omni is looking at everyone. We have had a lot of training problems lately. You have to come here ready to work.it is mostly on you to be prepared.If you get behind your done.

Experience levels are the primary reason someone can not get through the training. If someone is a mediocre pilot the training will move faster and be more challenging than expected.

It is true that there have been some unsuccessful candidates. But I don't think it's a blanket statement about Omni training in particular. It's not AQP training. It has more to do with prior experience and whether or not you are a self-starter. There were several 135 turboprop guys in the classes last year and this year. I've found the training department instructors and examiners to be very good at what they do.
