Default Type Rating Contract Length for XO / Flex

I've been looking at XOJet or FlexJet as a short-term stop before getting a call for one of the majors.

Does anyone have any info on what length of contract is required to be signed in order to get typed and if that contact can be "bought out" if I were to get offered a job at one of the majors in say a few months?

Flex used to be a 2 year contract with a pro-rated pay back based on length of service.

Two? I was told one year during my interview and ended up getting none. Where are you getting two from?

Correct one. Pro rated. Enforceability in CA is questionable though.

I'm not sure. I have no idea in fact, but I am in a position to be competitive and that is my end goal. I don't think it's unreasonable to be optimistic yet plan accordingly if things don't go how I would like to see them go.

Assuming you have more than 20 years to go, the career earnings difference between any fractional and any non-regional 121 would be over 2 million, so more than enough to pay the penalty...

I 100% want to be with a non-regional 121. Just looking at some non regional alternatives until I get a call from a major (I have 1500+ TPIC and over 3000 total with almost all of it being turbine multi-engine).
