Default Restricted ATP

Approaching 1000tt with over 350 xc and about 200 multi-turbine. Quite frankly, getting 1500 for the regionals is taking me forever so i'm looking to getting there asap.

I see American Eagle, RAH, ExpressJet, and others are interviewing pilots with unrestricted atp mins with a bachelors

What are my chances of landing a regional gig with restricted atp mins?
Any input would be awesome!

Thanks in advance.

I believe the R-ATP is only issued in conjunction with an FAA-approved aviation training program certificate from an FAA-approved school such as UND, Kent State, KS-Salina, Embry Riddle, etc. If you have that certificate then sure, regionals will hire you. I know persons with R-ATPs and they are getting hired. That's how the system works, with FAA-approved programs (only).

How do you go about getting a R-ATP? Take the test, have the mins, and do a check ride at a FSDO?

I think cub driver is right. And those who went to those schools before they had the cert are not grandfathered in.

No, you complete the school training program, get a job using the fact the regionals know who has the program and wants graduates from the schools working for them, then the regional handles the flight/ground training (for example an 8 week class and Level D simulator program) and administers the actual R-ATP checkride using a sim. FAA may have no direct contact with the applicant for testing, it only processes the application.

Nay. The FAA says depending on their review of the academic program, graduates going back up to 5 years may qualify.

By FAA approved, do you mean a 141 training program approved by the FAA (which the 4 year i went to is) or the 4 year school has to be listed under "institute of higher education"?
