C'mon, guy. Lack of common experience is a barrier to communication. Basic fundamentals of instruction.
He's the one who asked how it compared to AQP....

Why are CFI’s suddenly struggling with RJ training?

Because they ALL get a job now, not just the top 20%.

Why y’all hating all of a sudden. Honest questions, can’t you find a better way to use your time than talk crap on younger guys in the industry?

Because it’s too big of a task, the training is not meant for CFIs. They don’t explain the E190 and airline ops like Skywest and other regionals would. Others are hiring CFIs straight into the A320 now it’s just how it is.

I would steer any 1st 121s away from breeze. Just consider the big picture threat. It's not an airline for newbies, these arent smaller regional jets, and it's not AQP. Sure they will do what they can to get you through but as we all know (except light twin CFIs, of course)- it's a big jump to make going from a light twin to an E190 or bigger. RJ companies are more favorable places to transition.

If you fail out of training because you saw the shiny jets and low seniority number but maybe bit off more than you could chew, you'll have that failure on your record to explain for all your next job interviews.

If you make it through, you still have to face the reality that you're walking into a situation where the pilot group has an active card drive and a lot at stake (and if you dont know what that is, then case and point).

Respectfully, its gonna be over your head to manage that plus everything else. And I only say that because I've been there, but without the card drive part.

Tread carefully.

I’ve flown 121, 135 and 91 corporate. I have no clue what an “active card drive” is!

Alpa vote...I guess my point is to know the context of what's happening where you're applying. Big learning curve

ah, got ya. The only thing I’m trying to figure out is what the lines are like at Breeze. I’ve heard commuting for the 190 is terrible and it’s a flip of the coin if I get on the A220. I couldn’t do it if they still have a three year seat lock.

The training at Breeze is not suited for non 121 experienced pilots. It can be done, but tread lightly and consider going to a regional where it is more common. Our training was created on the idea that the pilots were already typed in the AC, OR had thousands of hours of 121. Over the past 3 months, they began hiring low time, to no 121 time pilots and several have washed out. Also the sim instructors have become way more strict since some that were “borderline” made it to IOE (and shouldn’t have), but washed out there.

The union vote closes this week. The company really has backed itself into a corner, union or no union things must change around here.
