Default UAL Hiring Mins

This is official. Now the question is will anyone be interested?



To be considered for the pilot position at United Airlines, you must possess the following minimum qualifications at the time of application. Those who do not meet the minimum qualifications will not be considered as applicants by United Airlines:

1500 hours Total Time - Fixed Wing.
1000 hours Multi-engine time (PIC) or Military fighter/trainer (PIC).
500 hours Turbine Time.
100 hours flown in the past year (Recency of experience).
Current FCC license.
Current valid passport.
Current First Class Medical.
Current ATP Certificate with Multi-engine land rating (AMEL).
High school diploma or GED equivalent.
Legal right to work in the United States.
A college degree from an accredited school is preferred.
Please note that PIC is defined as Captain/Aircraft Commander of record, not simply the sole manipulator of the controls. United only considers pilot time in fixed wing aircraft toward minimum qualifications.
United is preparing to commence pilot hiring later this year. If you are interested in becoming a United pilot, please continue to check this page for more information.


Now accepting pilot applications

I did the application...don't meet the multi PIC requirement, but nothing risked, nothing gained.

I was just wondering if someone could clarify what this means. Does this mean some of the PIC time you receive in training doesn't count to them?

Example, I used to fly a private aircraft that required two pilots, I was SIC and they let me fly PIC on the empty flights and counted it as training.

I would suspect that training where you were rated in the aircraft, logged PIC, but recieved dual instruction (working on your MEI for example) would not meet this requirement.

In your case, as long as you were PIC typed, logged PIC, and the other pilot logged SIC, it should be good. If you logged dual recieved, it probably does not count. 91 rules are pretty cut and dry here...if you logged it, it's all you. Just be sure that your previous employer will back up your story on this.

Thanks, unfortunately the company is long gone, but I am still in contact with the pilots so they can.

If they plane would have been in an accident would you have been the one Ultimately accountable? If someone let you fly that doesn't really mean you were the PIC. Just my couple pennies.

I heard a couple of new rumors the other day.

* UAL thinking about dropping the PIC requirement down to 500 hours.

* My wife ( a DEN CSR) had a captain tell her that UAL was putting a hold on the March and April classes.

Anybody know if these are true or not?

I hope not. I have a March 3rd class, and have not heard anything. Also, seems like no one else heard for the 17th, and 31st classes.
