Default Hiring minimums

Where on this site can I find the hiring minimums of selected airlines? What section?

Yes, I have been on that page plenty of times. It gives you airlines by majors, regionals, cargo etc, andit gives you pay rates for each. But I have seen nothing about hiring minimums

Your best bet is to look on each individual airline's website.

When you are on the main website page, there's a section in the upper right hand corner called Airline Profiles. Let's say you click on the Regional link. This will take you to a page that lists a number of Regional Airlines. When you select an airline it will take you to a new page that gives you some information about the airline; fleet type, pay scale, number of pilots, and if they are hiring or not. Sometimes they tell you the minimums, but most of the time you have to click on the link that they have on top of the page. That link normally takes you to the home page of that airline's website, and from there you can check out their employment opportunities.

also remember, there will be minimum hours and competitive hours. Another website to check out would be pilotjobs.com they'll also have links to lots of different airlines and will tell you wha tthe mins are and the competitives, you could also go to aviationinterviews.com and after you find a company w/ the mins you're looking for, check to see what people are getting hired and how many hours they have on average to see if you meet the qualifications.

Also, mins aren't normally set in stone. Some companies are hiring under their mins, some are hiring well above them. If you know someone to walk in a resume' that'll normally be enough to get you the interview, and that's more than half the battle. good luck.

I was checking out pilotjobs.com and noticed all the multi time, for the regionals, was in the PIC column. I have been in the right seat of a KA 350 for about 100 hrs, is that gonna hurt me? Do you need the 100 multi hours to be PIC?

the majority of companies don't really care, but some will...check the company's website that you want to apply to and see if they are requiring it as PIC on there as opposed to simply pilotjobs.com, if no mention is made, you can try it. Ive had buddies though who were told by an airline during an interview that "we're not going to count this time" it was actually right seat king air time as well, simply because they didn't think he should be able to log it.

Bobcat-

Just make sure you are careful about how you present your 350 time. Last I checked, it is a single-pilot airplane that requires a type rating (although I am certain that it becomes two-pilot automatically once a certain amount of pax are carried). So, you can't log it as PIC (unless of course you have the type), and you technically can't log it as SIC (Can't be second-in-command if only one is required for command)...but you can log it as total, multi, and dual received, assuming the PIC signs your logbook as a qualified MEI or ATP (due to ATP privileges in 61.167). In this position, if I didn't have the appropriate signatures there, I'd make it completely clear exactly what that time was, so that they didn't think I was trying to pad multi/turbine experience.

This issue is interpreted differently by just about everyone, though...just make sure you can back up whatever you have logged with the FAR's, so if they ask, you'll be able to provide a defense. Good luck.
