Any new hires within the past 12 months have any Kalitta Air pilots in their class? FedEx is where I want to end up.

Ever get any more information on this? This is the route I'm planning on taking. I spoke with a recruiter today and after a year of service you can apply to transfer to positions you're qualified for and you'll be considered before an outside hire. I'd like to speak with someone who's done it but that sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Is that still a thing? Can someone take a part time position in some capacity and use that to get an internal track to an interview? Also, does anyone know if past employment as a driver can provide any benefit in being selected to interview (assuming the pilot has competitive quals)?

Default 1000Hr Mark

Is the 1000 hrs PIC time before or after the sortie conversion? In the aircraft type section on pilot credentials it adds in the .2 conversion, but below that in the "Aircraft Category Subtotals" section it does not include the conversion.

I'm right on the bubble and my sortie conversion is about 150hrs. I don't want to get out of the Air Force too soon and it would be really nice to know which one they use. In the end it would only take a few more months to make up that difference, but every month counts!
