I ask because sim instructor position requires 2 year commitment and flying the actual plane here and there can keep you from getting too rusty.

Hey Taylor,

The company gives you two days a month that are designated for flying the line. You can pick up open time on your days off, but you will not get paid for doing so. There is a thing where you tell the company you are available to fly, they put you on a list, and if you get called for a trip it is paid above your salary.

Is there any important thing to know for this kind of transition? Thanks
Not quite sure what to say. We had 2 or 3 in my class leave for United during training. Anywhere between 1 week after starting to 5 weeks in.

Why would anyone go to jetblue? Itís a gateway program for Delta/United is the only thing I can come up with.

Why would one care if itís not their decision to make? Some leave, some donít.

Delta rumoured to be opening a BOS base soonish. Gonna have to add another sim in OSC for that.

Any open time flying or flying from being called from the list (VDA) will pay you above the salary. If you ďbuyĒ an extra trip from another pilot on your day off, then you are flying for free.

Really small class... Guess the LOA is signed and the acquisition is announced, no need for big classes anymore?
