Cant be CAs...too many senior FOs to step over. Now that they supposedly have the upgrade program approved, no point in more DECs. Seniority list sent out last week has them listed as "New Hire" DOH 7/15/13, FO Saab.

I asked myself the same thing still took a class at another regional to fly the Q. Have no regrets so far and can't wait to start.

RAH has no intentions on getting rid of the Q. United came to THEM and asked them to operate the Q. And the Q isnt covered under mainline scope so its possibilities for expansion are limitless.

New united contract closed that loophole.

Just to go back to this for a second...

Read 121.436 - it becomes effective August 1, 2013. Bold added.

(a)(3) If serving as pilot in command, has 1,000 hours as second in command in operations under this part, pilot in command in operations under 91.1053(a)(2)(i) of this chapter, pilot in command in operations under 135.243(a)(1) of this chapter, or any combination thereof. For those pilots who are employed as pilot in command in part 121 operations on July 31, 2013, compliance with the requirements of this subparagraph is not required.
The interesting section is the following areas:

(b) No certificate holder may use nor may any pilot act as second in command unless the pilot holds an airline transport pilot certificate and an appropriate aircraft type rating for the aircraft being flown. A second-in-command type rating obtained under 61.55 does not satisfy the requirements of this section.

(d) Compliance with the requirements of this section is required by August 1, 2013. However, for those pilots who are employed as second in command in part 121 operations on July 31, 2013, compliance with the type rating requirement in paragraph (b) is not required until January 1, 2016.
With the new hires currently in class, do they fall under the currently employed or will they be required to have an appropriate type rating as they will not be qualified to act as second in command until after July 31?
