Default SLI jobs on 220, 330, 350

Applications are opened for seniority list sim instructors jobs.

Those are great jobs, please consider applying!
I am a DGP guy, but I wish I have done this when I was still active.

I am sure SLIs on this forum can answer logistical questions.

Sorry, brother, I wouldnít know. Definitely a question to ask from Fleet managers. Go to fleet pages to find their contacts.
Makes total sense to me and if the furlough does happen .. maybe being hired as the DGP right away is a win win?

Does anybody know if you have to already be on a plane to be eligible to apply or will they train you on a new aircraft?

They will train you if need be, SLIs have been jumping from fleet to fleet for years in order to stay in their own bed every night. Great gig if you live in the ATL... When I was there they had an 88 F/O who had no airbus experience come onboard as a 330 instructor.

Minimum eligibility requirements include both:
  • 750 hours as PIC or SIC at Delta
  • 1000 FAR 121 PIC or SIC hours
Doesn't mention already on the aircraft. As a matter of fact, the training timeline mentions 3 months.

Thanks for the info. Iím currently on the 320, but 330 and 350 SLI might be appealing. I have 10 month old twins and one on the way, so Iím sure my wife would love for me to be home every night. Plus Iím one of the UNAs returning to flight status, so there is no telling what base and airplane Iím gonna get on this AE. This might be a good way to guarantee I stay in ATL. Any current SLIs care to share their experiences about quality of life?

For those curious. Itís a good gig, but itís not perfect (no job is).

if youíre hired as an FO SLI, you get paid 85 hours of highest FO plane you can hold. So if you can hold Capt, it doesnít matter. You only get FO SLI pay. With the exception of if you canít hold 350, but can hold A, they will give you 350 pay. The 85 hours is for 17 Sims....so only 5:00 per event.
You give up some flexibility. Letís say youíre senior in category as a ďregularĒ line guy/gal. If you want to stack all your trips in the first 2 weeks of the month, and go on a vacation the last half of the month, you can do it. Not as an SLI. You only get to pick 6 ďX daysĒ Per month.
Also, you can preference bid what periods you want. But not many guys want A, D, or E...so you will get stuck with some.

ive been here 5 years, and recently left one of the Departments. I enjoyed it. The people are great, and your customers are your fellow delta pilots. The pay pre-MOAD was awesome cause I was making 777 pay.
if I went back now Iíd be on 7ER pay, and on my fly months Iíd be junior....vs being senior as a line guy on 737 or 717 where I pick EXACTLY when and how I want to work.

thatís the beauty of the gig. Something for everyone. Happy to answer any PMs
