Would it be a risk to choose the crj in ground school ? Only reason I would guarantee an ORD base

What risk? It doesn't matter if is AQP or regular type ride, there's always risk of screwing something up.

I started in the E-145 back in 2010, supposedly it was harder than the CRJ. Transferred last year to the CRJ and the training was about the same. If you really want ord, go for it. It's a very complete training with great instructors. They will help you as far as you want to be helped, if in doubt never hesitate to ask questions.

As far as risk, I was leaning towards the uncertainty of how long they will be on line.

It's a valid concern, but if you get displaced you'll be able to displace to whatever seat/base you can hold. I realize it's not a thrilling prospect to face that risk, but there are very few people who make it through an aviation career without base, seat, equipment or even a company shot out from under them at least once.

Are you worried about not being able to stay in ORD if that happens?

Let's not forget that yesterday was the one year anniversary for Charlie Bucket. First Officer Bucket only has 18 months left until he upgrades and 4.5 years left until he flows to AA.

Congratulations Charlie on getting hired at the premiere regional in the U.S. and for your pending upgrade and flow.

He's supposedly still on reserve, so the next 18 months should be quite a slingshot forward, especially 2017. Curiously though, others have also claimed he got a "talking to" by ALPA attorney's, whatever that means. I guess it's tough to have the golden ticket at the "premier regional" in the industry and not have all eyes on you monitoring and marking your impending meteoric success ?

So the 6 month or less reserve does not exist as some are told ?

If you can get a leave of absence for a couple years, it totally exists.
