Who knows.
With the 121 time required to upgrade non FAA PIC time doesnít gain you anything other than experience. Seniority based upgrades arenít going away.

Having pilots on a work visa is an advantage to employers that have turnover problems because they canít jump ship to another airlineÖ unless that airline takes over sponsorship which can be a pain.

Default Instructors

Speaking of training. Does Frontier use instructors who are line pilots also or is it mostly full timers? Also does anyone know what the instructor schedule and pay is like at F9? Thanks guys.

Most instructors are line pilots, but there are contract instructors too. All check airman are current or former Frontier Captains by contractual requirement. The schedule/pay is different depending on whether youíre a contract or line pilot instructor.

Candidates for interview on the 10th will be largely selected from those who attend the MTC on the 9th.

Appreciate the reply and information. Good to know that line pilots are also teaching the SIM. How often do those guys rotate between SIM and the Line?

If I remember correctly when my group and I got our CJOs, we were told we wouldn't hear a thing for at least three weeks...It was pretty close to 3 weeks and I got the email with a choice of August/September. In that email it stated you could make yourself available for anything earlier...

The vast majority of our instructors are line flying pilots but theres a few contract and retired guys.

I'd guess on average the instructors do two months in the sim and one month on the line if the training dept is busy like it is now
