3-4 days for initial ground isn't much. I would bet it's longer than that.

2 full weeks in IFR refresher / ground school and a full week in the sim. Plan on 3 strait weeks of training and a final checkride before you're officially offered an FO position.

Hey I'm new to airline forums and have some questions. I'm currently flight instructing and looking to go to PlaneSense at PDK. I know a decent amount about the company but can't find any information about their base at PDK. Anybody have any information?

Here is a quick rundown: regardless of your base, it is only an indicator of where you are required to show up on day 1 of your work cycle. From there, you will be assigned to fly, drive, or airline anywhere else for the week.

PDK is a legacy base chosen due to the high number of owners and customers in the area, as well as an onsite Pilatus service center. We maintain a healthy working relationship with the FBOs, lease crew rooms and catering storage, and provide parking for crew members while they are on the road. Anything else, shoot.

Roughly how many flight hours per month can a new FO expect to fly out of PDK? Also, are they currently hiring?
