Can I go to that expo at the museum? Or do I need to meet certain criteria before being able to go?

Theyíll post requirements but itís more important you register the moment registration opens. Follow Delta Air Line Pilot Recruiting on Facebook. They will post all the pertinent details on their page and they are usually the first SM group to post when registration opens. In times past, all the eligible slots have gone in less than an hour. They typically have several hundred slots available so that tells you how many people live by their computer leading up to the opening of registration. If you donít get a slot at first, stay tuned to their page as they will reopen slots for those who have to cancel in the weeks before the expo.

The route you have layed out is a good plan, many have met success with it. It is also a popular path so it is highly recommended to do stuff outside your role as a line pilot. What stuff you ask? Doesnít matter, do stuff that interests you: work, fun or charity; try to take a role of responsibility and put it on your app. No kidding, you coach your kids football team, put it on there, part of a magician society, put it on there(if youíre allowed, I have no idea if magicians allow that).

What makes you different will get you the interview and the job.

All good info. Iíd also recommend that put off Army training until you consolidate. But then itís all about fly, fly, fly. Donít just focus on one over the other. Iíd make sure to fly enough at the regional to move up there as well. You want to be able to upgrade asap. Your ďAĒ time is much better than co-pilot time. Same for Army. Get your advanced quals ASAP. Thereís a good window for the airlines. But... you want to be as far out on the front of it as possible. Seniority is everything. And I mean everything. So go all in. Bust your ass and fly, fly, fly. Upgrade and fly more.

Iíve done community service with my unit and church. Also I love mentoring, Iíve a couple of student pilot/pilots who want to follow my steps towards a civilian/Military career, Iím coaching them. The leadership position I hold is PLT leader, which gives me the opportunity to be with my soldiers and get to know the team, I enjoy meeting new people, mentoring and helping others towards their goals! :-)

Yes that is what I want, fly as much as possible and get my ratings quick (while enjoying it) lol... Iíve read Delta will need over 8,000 pilots in the next decade, and Iím committed to try to become part of the team.

ENJOY the Bro...Loved it!!!! Build time and keep App up to date w/ DAL. But before submitting App make sure it's been looked over by a service. Too many sit and wait for a call that will never come due to a crappy app.

Good Luck!!

It is such a fun airplane to fly, hardest type rating Iíll probably ever take but worth every night without sleep. Iíve my app ready(I think) I compared it with my Delta pilot mentor and looks pretty sharp. Still Iíll pay for a service to go over it also will pay for a prep service to get squared away.
