But youíll likely be a line holder at some point on year 2 and make 85-90 hours a month.

$80k/$120k is prob a conservative number for low effort. I know guys working VDAs who are making a lot more than that though.
Many thanks. Do you think it differs across bases? Hoping BOS. Apparently the debate on equipment offer significantly different scenarios.

Starting 1 May, the first year rate is $88.14, 2nd year 320 is $$119.54 and 2nd year 190 is $98.68. May 2020, 1st year rate is $89.90, 2nd year is $121.92 on the 320, and $100.66 on the 190. As the navy guy said, multiply times 1000 to get a rough estimate.

190 will hold a line and potentially earn more inside 3-4 months. 320 you may be on RSV as long as a year, though those times should be dropping soon due to the 144 slots that have opened since 1 Jan.
Posted while I was typing. Ha. Thanks again to both of you.

The biggest difference I would imagine comes from being a line holder or not. JFK 190 guys seem to get to a line the quickest right now. Once holding a line, you tend to get more credit as well as more days off. Hourly pay is equal on the two airplanes the first year, but holding a line means being able to trade trips and pick up more flying typically.

So i did a brief search and came up empty. I apologize for a somewhat hijack of the way this thread is going. What hours are realistically competitive for getting hired at JB?

I have a litte over:
2000 tt
500turbine all 121
1200 pic

But no 121 pic/tpic

Second time i have applied. I realize iím probably less qualified than most/all other applicants getting jobs, but how much so?

Anyone hired with relatively low time care to share their times?

March monthly bid was #3523, not sure what his hire date was but guessing early 2018. They stopped posting DOH on the recent seniority lists

I would say your chances are better once you hit 4000TT. I know JBU has hired guys with less than that, but thatís a good start.

TPIC is not a requirement and I had a few classmates that didnít have any. I personally think itís good to have.

Just spent the last hour filling out the application online. I figured each time I clicked "next" it would save and move on.

BUT

Apparently not! Clicked "next" again after sorting though the work experience section (took a bit of time since it pulled from the resume but needed a bunch of information fixed) and it timed out and lost all information on the application...

Really?

SO Warning... click "save and finish later" often!!

Majority of guys/gals in my interview group had north of 5000 hours. Most had at least some TPIC, some 121, some had 135 or corporate. Average age was probably 35. Some were younger, in their late 20's, some were 55 or so.

It is obviously still competitive, and still a desired place to be.
