Default New hire questions

Hello,

Trying to put timelines together.

How long typically is it from date of hire to training? How long is training to IOE? How is basing determined? How senior is Medford?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Depends on the aircraft. I was hired in September, and probably wont finish IOE until January sometime. This is on the Q. But it sounds like they are trying to speed things up.

You will bid for your bases in training, but chances are you will get Medford right out of training. That is where all the newhires have going lately.

Welcome aboard! I am guessing you are in the Q. The training is top notch.

Any idea how long is the wait for the ERJ? Which base is junior? How long is training? Can you ask for ERJ or company decision?

Thanks

Not sure what classes are looking like for the ERJ. But we are resuming deliveries in March, and parking 15 Qs next year. So I would say your chances of getting it are pretty good. I think budgeting about three months for training is good. Right now SEA is the only base for the jet, with a PDX satellite base. Who knows that will happen next year. I wouldnt be surprised to see PDX become a jet base.

Are the 10 four hour sessions split with a sim partner so each gets 20 hours flying the sim (PF) and 20 hours acting as PM for their sim partner?

Or do you get 40 hours hours as PF?
