That magic number is three. Under three, you can erase those events with additional quals. Three or more, you’re statement is correct. All the majors meet annually and share their hiring protocols—this is valid across the board.

You have to be kidding me.... So, Southwest that is hiring 800 pilots has the same standards as United that is hiring 200?

I was successful on my CFI-A. However, someone who tried is certainly looked upon more favorably than someone who did not. What you are advocating is not true, unless you already have two failures.

No more than two checkride failures. What’s so hard to understand about that?

When a former pilot recruiter gives you advice, you should probably take it. Good luck to you sir, you’re gonna need it with that attitude.

wow, I didn't mean for this thread to turn into an argument. So now I'm onto working on my commercial ticket. I'm not pushing on CFI for now, I'm always looking for recommendations on how to build the hours at the lowest cost possible. Anyone out here in Hawaii that may have advice or is able to help? Thanks in advance as always!

Welcome to apc!

We used to have a Captain that commuted from Hawaii. Let me check and see if he is still here. I will PM his name to you.

So, you will have Commercial, Instrument, Multi..... two ways to build time after that without costing you a fortune: instructor or commercial flying. Check out Moukelele Airlines. They have CASS privileges and don’t require an ATP.
