Default Flow upgrade time with military experience

Question for the military guys at Envoy. What has been the average timeline for getting a call from the majors? Is it 6 years like the recruiting campaign is preaching or is it shorter. Thank you.

You have to be much more specific. What kind of military time? Are you talking RTP or FW with lack of currency?

If you don't have an ATP, you need it from somewhere.

Ummm maybe because some military guys are tools and canít have a normal conversation so they canít pass an interview. Maybe they need to go get some. Social interaction time and build their personality experiences vs their flight time. Just a thought.

Even a USAFA grad (KC-135; who'd been away from flying for awhile) needed something like two years as an Envoy FO to get picked up by AA. So...

Yes, well if you had competitive TT/PIC you wouldnít have to, as long as that was in the last year or so. And there is some magic formula, different for each company, how much of what kind of time and how recently to still be competitive. Other wise you ARENíT competitive and you need recency. And a 121 training event will probably do it for most in that situation, even from a regional. But you still have to have the apps already in and update. Again different companies, different trigger points, as to what MIGHT trigger a call.

Same situation but the FO did 3 months on reserve and got picked up by AA. He didnít consolidate by the time he was picked up.

pitchattitude, to be more specific: Iím an Osprey guy who will be transitioning to civilian straight out of the fleet. Now that the FAA counts my MV time as Ďfixed wingí instead of powered lift, just seeing if that will speed up my process for getting to the majors faster. Thanks for the reply.
