Default How many hours are you flying

I'm just trying to get a feel for the amount of flying you will get from each base. I have heard that DFW based pilots are getting about 20 hours per month, but LGA based are getting to fly about 80 per month.

What kind of flight hours can be expected at each base?

As little as possible. Getting displaced rocks.

Are you talking about being on reserve? Lineholders don't fly 20 hours per month unless they drop trips (which never get approved), call in sick, or as the previous poster said, get displaced. I'm not sure what the average line value at DFW is, but it's well over minimum guarantee of 72 hours/month.

As a lineholder in ORD I am always over guarantee, and then have the option to pick up OT. I have flown 95 hours some months and as little as 35 others. It all depends on how much you want to work.

Is this pretty consistent across the company? How much does this differ based on base, seat, equipment etc.?

145 FO, ORD. I can agree with MD-11, only thing to add is OT was a little more scarce this month (makes sense with flying being down overall this time of year).

Thatís good to hear. Iíve been reading here about lines that barely meet min guarantee and not being able to pick up extra flying and that kind of concerned me. Im looking at an April class date and that is probably one of my biggest concerns so far about Envoy. Just trying to get in and fly to boost the resume.
