What are the specifics surrounding the upgrade time for someone coming in with 1000 121 SIC time and wanting PVD/BDL

Can someone elaborate on the training timeline? Basically start to finish, how long Indoc is, do you go home before SIM's, etc.. Thanks again for everyone's input. Just trying to get an idea of expectations and timelines.

4-5 months, but the training dept. is trying to get that timeline down. It was about 70 days when I came though in 2021. Thatís the target theyíre trying to get back to.

Thanks to all for your input!
United has an MCO base that will open in the next few months and eventually TPA will be a coterminal. At the moment, MCO is very junior on the FO side. Food for thoughtÖ

Default Thoughts on my situation

Hello, I posted in here a while ago. Iím getting tired of the 135 stuff and want to jump to 121(Iím an FO at 1600hrs and plenty turbine). Preferably a LCC but havenít heard back from others, but have an offer from Breeze. I live in Tampa and my thought was ďgreat Iíll get the A220 (heard everyone was because of how many they had on order) and live in base TPA, or commute until I get it eventually. Read all the previous pages on the forum, and it sounds like living here in TPA will almost make me worse off due to seniority and if I got the E190. Any thoughts on what I should look at doing? I was actually really stoked to work at Breeze but from some previous posts, now Iím not so sure????

Commuting on the A220 sucks, but if you live in base itís great! Those lucky enough to be able to move to a base are very happy. Seniority is relative. Every new hire is at the bottom. But with the number of planes on order your seniority will go up quickly. Tpa is senior so you will be junior there, but as we get more planes, junior seniority becomes senior rather quickly. We added roughly 200 pilots last year, probably more than that this year. So look at percentages.

Again commuting can be done just takes your days off away. Once in base even on reserve your home!

The plane is amazing, the people are great, just the trips are not commutable yet. You have to get to the base a day earlier and leave a day after.

In base: the trips are highly efficient flying day. 15 hrs 2 day trips with a 24 hr layover pretty great!

The company has to fix it or they will loose a lot of pilots this year

I would get in and get that seniority number here. We’re supposed to triple in flights in 2023. At least there is a TPA base with non stop flights to the other bases and you’ll be on your own metal if you need to commute. Otherwise it seems pretty straight forward, go some place that can give you TPA or MCO.

What this guy said. Apply at F9 (TPA JR). In the mean time, take the class date at Breeze. If you get the 190, update your apps with breeze on there and f9 will call. If you get the 220 drop, stay home in tpa and watch the seniority list grow below you (if we can keep hiring). Congrats and welcome.

Is there any concerns with Breezes profitability, there are a couple articles floating around saying Breeze is burning through cash and Avelo is the more likely candidate to make it.
