Default Initial Training

Hi to all,
I got the CJO and I'm having a virtual welcome/orientation next month
Can someone provide info about how long is the initial pilot training?
Is ground school and Sims also @ DEN ?
Just wondering for how long I'm gonna need a crashpad / Airbnb or hotel.
really appreciate any info.
Thank you

Congrats and welcome. From start to last sim itís roughly 8 weeks. Everything is in DEN with the possibility of MIA sims for a handful. Usually goes senior in your class because you get a hotel and per diem.

Congrats! Were you a Pre-Covid applicant? Or did you interview just recently?

Great, I thought it was longer.
It would be great if I can get the sims in MIA since I'm from MIA.
answering the other question..
No precovid
I applied a few months ago, I believe in February.
Thanks for the info

No

For the most part we don't wear them in the sim. But during your actual checkride I think you will. There are sets in the sim.

on the line about half of people have their own. I recommend it

Just remember to replace the ship headset and iron/starch the checklist before you exit the cockpit for the day.

Just need to know someone at F9 that you are close enough to and is willing to recommend you. Supposedly a guaranteed interview, but no guarantee how quick thatíll be. Should be a good program for everyone.
