What letter are you talking about and when did you receive it? I too never received anything. I sure hope we don't get flushed from the pool. That would suck and I'll really regret not rolling the dice and showing up for class in January.

I am assuming you guys were scheduled for the class that got canceled. I was never scheduled for a class date so instead of getting a call I got a pool letter in the mail back in Dec.

It reads "Congratulations on successfully completing the interview process. You have been placed into the pilot hiring pool for Kalitta Air for a six month period. Once you have been selected from the pool you will be given a class date and sent a pre-employment package. If you have not been contacted for a class date within the six months, you will need to reapply........."

Maybe you guys are in the pool indefinitely since I am assuming you were already scheduled a class, I don't know. Good luck!

I would be REAL surprised if they held any new hire classes in June or before....

Judging by the fact that it is nearly April and there has not been a vacancy bid posted I would say that is a safe bet. Typically a vacancy bid is open for about a month and then the class date is a month after that. (give or take a week or two)

I saw that Kalitta will be at the Aerocrew Solutions job fair in DFW on 1/30/15. Will the start hiring again and will the minimums come down? I have a relative that is a pilot for them, but he doesn't know what's going on. I'd like to go fly for them.

They just ran a class at the end of 2014, and will be hiring in the new year as you said for a class (possibly in February or March? Dunno). I heard from a good friend who is employed with them that the minimums are down to around 1,200 or lower if you have an internal recommendation. Was told a few of the new pilots got hired with 950 and 1100 hours (with internal recommendations).

Good luck to you, I will be applying myself.

How are they getting hired with 950 hours? Connie is still 121 or did I miss something.
