My only concern as I am filling out the pre-interview JetBlue flight time grid is that the JetBlue application and during the phone screen asked for just my PIC time...not only PIC time where I signed off the aircraft. While the flight time grid wants only "signed off the aircraft" PIC. So the times will vary a little. In the end, hopefully it won't matter as long as I follow the instructions.

I think the next one will be OBAP in August.

When I was called for the phone interview they were just checking to see if I met the bare minimums. Again if it's legal pic, leave it in your logbook. Fill out the form how they ask. I think you're right about it doesn't matter if it's a little different.

You figured it out yourself in the last sentence.

Yea, my flight time was different on that grid than what I had down on the application because I had time that was neither SIC or PIC. Which I'm pretty sure everyone has.

It's just you! I'd recommend this place to all my pilot friends, unless they're already set at a legacy. What do you mean about providing food? Troll

As of May 15th, JetBlue has 6 candidates who are fully vetted (background checks, PRIA, and drug test done). My understanding is that those candidates will be offered slots in the class that starts on June 8th. The classes are now running at about 12 pilots per class and they have announced that classes will be starting every two weeks through the summer.

What that means is that the pilots who interviewed in the beginning of April will most likely see classes starting on that day for a half dozen lucky few and continuing.

JetBlue also doesn't necessarily place a pilot into class in the order in which they completed the vetting process. They like to have a mix of pilots from different backgrounds, a la, a few with Military, a few Regional, part 135 or charter guys.
