Na i'm the other guy. Same boat as you. 13 minutes driveway to parking lot. I set a new record a few months ago, setting parking brake to pulling up in my driveway in ATL, 47 minutes. Crew bus to lot waiting on me, no traffic, green lights all the way, kids already finished with their bath's etc etc.....

Iíve been here over 2 years and still around 200 numbers away from even being awarded upgrade. Upgrades at ExpressJet may even be shorter than here soon.

Minnesota is beautiful, has lots to do, good fishing and a good place to live, great schools if you have a family.

But good luck getting it as a base.

January '17 hires on both the 900 and 200.

On the plus side, it's the largest number of upgrades since the middle of 2018.

Itís definitely good that 19-05 has a large number of upgrades, vs mostly CA base switching like we have seen on all of the vacancies for the last year or so. Iím guessing the growth that has been announced so far, coupled with (hopefully) high continued attrition on the CA side, will be enough to upgrade most of the pilots who were hired in the first 4 or 5 months of 2017. I think it will take about 3 more vacancies to bring staffing all the way up to where it needs to be to fully staff the growth. That would mean a March 2020 vacancy would account for the current growth and beyond that it would just be upgrading for attrition.

There are still a lot of pilots on the list who were hired in the summer of 2017 and I think itís either going to take another growth announcement or some serious attrition to get those pilots into the left seat.

Doing a logbook audit and am having a brain fart...

Is there no endorsement or sign offs associated with a Part-61 MEI?

As an add on? No I don't think so. Check the AC though. It's been a few years for me

61-65
