Upgrade times aren't going to come down to 3 years overnight. When they do come down, it will be the recent new hires who will win out.

Yeah... when it was 9+ years that is a great improvement. But I understand your game. You’re all about the quick upgrade.....
I'm not in my 20's bud, I don't have time to wait 5 years for an upgrade. And I have >1200 hrs SIC Part 121, so why should I? And don't give me any BS about "paying my dues". My dues were paid for a decade in the 90's.

Don't blame me because you have no sense of humor.

You must be a miserable little person. All you do is make snide remarks. Does it make you feel better about yourself to degrade others? I know your type, you're a pathetic human being.

Man you must be Chuck Yeager with all that experience. They should make you a 777 CA.

Unfortunately, you will struggle. There is more to being a CA then flying skills (and yours have atrophied). I feel for your LCP, CA and FOís when they fly with you. The chip on your shoulder(s) is quite evident.

Hey hey HEY! Donít besmirch his good name. He has OVER 1200 hours. SIC, no less! Those numbers speak volumes. We could all learn from one so wise as this.

Are you at ExpressJet? If so, how long? I don't see five-year upgrades much longer.
I'm no longer at ExpressJet, but I've seen this rodeo a few times. Eight-year upgrade turns into 18 months. Two-year upgrade turns into 6 years. They are tough to predict.

So I have a chip on my shoulder because I have the hours required to be a CA and don't want to wait two years to upgrade?

I never said I'm ready to jump into a CA seat right away. I'm well aware I it will take some time to get back to being proficient enough to even contemplate a CA upgrade.

You don't know anything about me to make the stupid and immature assumptions you're making, so speak for yourself. If anyone is acting like pompous ass here, it's you and PhantomHawk frat boy.

I hope your ridicule of others helps lift your obvious low self esteem.

Maybe you could learn to be an adult, frat boy.
