How long has it been since NWA last had a new hire class? Late 2001?

They had classes all the way up until 9/11.

FWIW, back then competitive was 5000+, with all the bells and whistles. The low stated mins are to cover the under represented demographics. Given how many pilots have been camping out in the Regionals flying CRJ's significant jet, 121 PIC, and TT will probably be the norm

does anyone have any idea if NWA is going to require the FE written.

I know you don't need it for what's online now but for those that are lucky enought to get that 30 day email will they need it then?

Hi!

NWA uses FEs on the 747-200. They don't have very many. I think all the FEs are either pros or pilots hitting age 60 and wanting to stay on.

I don't think you could even BID FE unless you were a very senior guy.

NWA guys-is the above about right???

No PFEs at NWA....just a lot of senior pilots including ROPES. ANC FE very senior

I know it's senior, I'm just wondering if anyone knows if it will be required because it's so senior.

Default FE not required

Took me all of about 3 mouse clicks to get the info from their website.
