Any chance of picking up an open fall spot from people who don't accept their conditional offers from the spring or is there a super long list of FO's waiting for their class date?

I just gave up my October class for a August 29th date. Call HR and let them know your available.

Same here. I had an August 29th class date and got bumped to July 11th, and there were a couple others from other class dates as well. Just let them know that you're available. When the class date is 6 months out from the interview, some people reconsider or start another job.

I haven't interviewed yet, think if I flew myself to Portsmouth I could have a chance of getting in this fall? Guess I'll have to contact HR and ask. Thanks folks.

I'd say get a interview and the acceptance call first.

No ****. I'm asking if they'd even offer an interview at this point.

Default Really

Im just finishing up my IFR and will be starting my Com SEL soon after, I should be done with all my requirements by summer or fall 2018. My question is, do they really hire FO's with just barely 500 hour. I don't know if having a non related BA counts but I do have one. Does anyone knit if there is a chance for me at Planesense? P.S. I will be 55 years old when I am ready.

I just applied to PlaneSense in DFW. Very responsive HR department. Responds to emails very quickly, not a common thing these days. I am looking into a captain spot in DFW for the Fall and am just wondering, (as i read different opinions and situations) what are the chances of getting on? The pool size, and how long between interview and class date usually? I would absolutely love to fly the nice PC-12's they have. But if it's a handfull of months between interview and class, i don't know if i want to do that. If anyone is a reletively new hire or is based in DFW, any help is appreciated! I currently have just over 2K TT and 1800 PIC

Planesense has many pilots that are 55+ and from what I have seen age has nothing to do with the hiring process.

Assuming you get the interview, the main disqualifiers would be weak IR skills, weak Jepp knowledge and a perceived unwillingness to do the dirty work (i.e. cleaning the interior of the plane on empty legs, restocking the catering and emptying the lav if necessary). There is also a heavy emphasis on personality as you will be interacting directly with the owners and playing the role of gate agent/flight attendant/pilot/psychiatrist.

Once getting to training you'll find that the Honeywell Apex has a steep learning curve. Do everything you can to study up on that before hand.

I suspect they will consider applications for FOs at 500 hours if they feel you have a good handle on all of the above.
