Thanks. Didn’t realize their profile was there now.

It took me 3 months from first interview to be in class. Then from class to finish my checkride was 5 months and a week. Last I heard they were filling April classes. If you’re a DEC I’d expect it to be on the shorter end. The training footprint is going to be shorter now that they are getting an apm and apds for the ejet Atleast. The A220 training seems to be pretty streamlined already

I received the CJO on 12/23 and was told late Q2 of 2023 for a class. a week later I got an email asking if I could make the 1/31 class, which I replied, ABSOLUTELY! We were told in class that a new group is coming in every two weeks out as far as they could go - So I think it could be a game time decision for those waiting for a date, you just don't know.

Default Breeze training department?

For Breeze pilots: how does your training department compare to other airlines you've experienced? Where is the training? Thank you.

If you’re asking how training is at Breeze, it’s very straight forward. Not a gimme but not very hard either. Training is in SLC. The ground school portion is basic FAA box checking, not a whole lot of in-depth teaching. If you have no previous airline experience you’ll be doing a lot of self studying regarding regs and procedures to really understand how you’ll be operating in an airline environment. Still, most have no issues getting past ground school, I think it’s designed that way, the simulator is where it gets challenging for some. The simulator portion is just like any other airline, you can either fly or you can’t. Great instructors. They work with you if you’re having issues as long as you’re showing effort. But there’s only so much the instructors can do if you can’t fly IFR or have no concept of a multi crew environment using checklists etc.

The training department is fantastic here. Some of my favorite ppl are instructors and LCK’s. Breeze is wayyyyy more relaxed than the regionals. You don’t feel like “they’re out to get ya”. My experience at my previous job and some of my buddies that were at other regionals was that, your job was on the line every single time you went into the sim. Immense amount of pressure, which hinders any opportunity of learning something new.

Just got my CJO for June class. How long do you expect to be on reserve for each fleet? The letter said training is now close to 7 weeks, Is that correct?

I'm accepting today! Have you had a good experience so far? I'm coming from 135 and haven't enjoyed it much and haven't flown much either. 200hrs in 6 months.

Welcome! You’ll enjoy it here. If they hired you, you’re most likely going to fit in. We do a good job of hiring a “personality”. Safe, dependable, and professional, all while being laid back and fun. As mentioned above, the training dept is not out to get you. You’re required to put the effort in to learn the aircraft and callouts/flows. But if you put the effort in, they can see it right away, and you’ll be golden.

Reserve varies by base and airframe. You could potentially hold a line in 2 months, or it could be a year. It’s a crapshoot to try and guess. Plan for the worst, and hope for the best. By the time you get on board, we will have far more pilots and several more airframes on property. So hopefully things will move faster for you than it has for some hired last year
