Since you declared the new base there, you should know what the routes will be. If you have no idea.....just keep making stuff up!

Hey guys. I'm a senior DFW based FO at an Envoy competitor and contemplating Envoy for that flow. Can anyone tell me what the current upgrade/flow time is over at Envoy now? I've seen the charts talking about quick flow, but the last Envoy captain I talked to last October-15 was a 1999 hire and flowed in Jan-16. I know that that will come down in the future but if anyone has some hard numbers on the current situation that would be dandy. Thanks guys.

How do you define "hard numbers"?

Hey guys, new to thread. I have a class date approaching. I recently was informed about APC. Prior to knowing about this site I did some pretty thorough research and interviewed at many regional's, talked to many pilots and Envoy felt like the best fit for me and I live in base. I understand that every place has its own risk and I am fully aware of that. Before reading this thread I felt pretty confident about my decision however now i am a bit nervous. I am practically committed for two years if I decide to move forward with the new bonus and ctp-atp commitment. I understand it is pro rated after the first year, I am also a bit worried because many of my colleges at other regional's have told me its easier to get through other airlines training as compared to envoy.

If you live in base life will be good.
As for taining, nothing to worry, as long as you do your best, study hard and forget about anything else that is going on in your life for the duration of training. You will do just fine.

If you take training seriously and work with your classmates, you will have a good experience. The same is true for any training program.
The schoolhouse has a lot of new blood and some of the characters have moved on. My experience has been better the last 2 years or so since it has become more training and less testing

Our training is great, it's slightly harder than some crud holes but it's worth it for how you will continue in your career.

Guys coming to envoy right now have amazing timing.

I fail to see how someone hiring on at Envoy today has amazing timing. Unless you are still buying into that sub 6 year flow baloney.

Or, unless they enjoy being worked to the bone with minimal days off, early starts, late finishes, abhorrent treatment from top management all the way down, seriously sub par wages, depending on your aircraft...almost terminal reserve, minimal credit lines, 2 days off between sequences, pay comp screwing you out of dollars monthly with a fight on your hands just to get what's owed to you, 8 year upgrades and 15 year flows.

The 8 yr upgrade is going to drop I don't understand how some people don't believe that . 2 years ago people kept saying endeavor will go under and that their upgrades were 7 yrs . Now look what happend . All this negativity is so annoying , if it sucks so bad go work in a warehouse and then complain.
