Default Horizon

Is Horizon hiring for a specific aircraft like the CRJ or if I interviewed with them is it possible I'd be placed in any of them?

Any of them. And getting the CRJ right out of the box is highly doubtful, especially with the F9 contract closing. The CRJ is the senior airplane at QX. If you do get it, you'll be on reserve until you look like my avatar.

Not exactly. Hiring plans are for the Dash-8's right now but many of the current RJ FO's are going to upgrade next year, as well as a good amount of attrition in the FO ranks. This would require some RJ FO's to be hired early next year. The company tends to award the RJ to applicants with the highest sim score from the interview.

With the new service that is starting out of LAX does that means that they will have a base there as well?

Highly doubtful. It has been a rumor for some time, but nothing more than that.

Default thank you sir, may I have another?

clear as mud..... your guess is as good as anyone. That said, this is a mute point. If you are offered the job, you say "Thank you, where do you want me?" Are you really going to turn the job down if they make you fly a lowly turboprop?

Default Lowly?

The QX Dash 8-400s have most, if not all, of current cutting edge technology. The only difference is that the "fan" only has 6 blades.

With the exception of the wx radar. Hence the arrival of EFB's in the Q400 first.
