Default In the school house!

In case you all were wondering - our group started out last week!
We had 5 in our class. 2 military, 1 former 121 and 2 CFI's. We're on our home study now. A lot more work than I anticipated on the home study side. From what I deduced, hiring has slowed to accommodate Captain upgrades. Overall pretty impressed with Compass with their organization in the classroom and footprint laid out for us. Not loving the home study but appreciate being home with the family vs being in a hotel and doing this in a classroom setting.

Any word on if there will be a delay for sims due to captain upgrades? 5 seems like a relatively small class.

Are the military dudes ex-fixed wing or rotary wing? Did they leave the military current or non-current? Asking for a friend.

They just posted a vacancy for November for 28 captain upgrades and 41 FO vacancies.

Somebody correct me if i'm wrong, but that's the most upgrades in a bid period we've ever done, or at least in 3 years. That's really extraordinary. The list will continue to move pretty fast.
