There are no official mins that I know of right now. However, You probably won't get goes hired unless you are qualified to take the ATP/CTP course and get your ATP. So 1500 for most. Less if you attended a 141 university program.

CJ, Excel, Sovereign, X, and Challenger 604

As an FO you can sit right seat in any fleet. Purely based on need. However, you most likely will be in a CJ or Excel since they are our largest fleets. You will upgrade into a CJ or Excel when the time comes. It takes 7 plus years to be a PIC on anything other than a CJ or Excel.

You sign a 24 month training contract. Expect it to be worth $10-12k.

That's a long contract. Don't most other outfits just have a 12 month contract?

Default Phone screen complete...

Phone screen with a DPJ Captain this morning. Was asked what I knew about the company. This immediately led to talk about the merger with WU. Followed by a couple of HR questions, then more talk about the company, lifestyle, benefits, pay etc.

The biggest unknown for the pilots, from what the CPT explained to me, is that everything is s rumor and no one knows for sure what things will look like in a year.

I specifically asked about the merger being with WU and not GAMA (WU pilots). I was told no one knows if DPJ will compete for seniority with the GAMA pilots, if the pay scale will change (similar, but not exactly the same), etc. The CPT said the pilots were caught by surprise that this was happening.

The pilots will no longer have the Delta privileges, but at the same time will be able to fly any airline to work and keep the miles. Plus that leaves more options for airports for home-basing- not tied to Delta only.

Currently hiring for the Citation XL and Citation Jet. Training contract is prorated for two years. 1st year FO is 58K, 3-4K pay raise annually. once CPT, pay is 96k. $45/day per diem while on the road (added to your pay check). 14 hour day with progressive rest cycle (call ops when you're done for the day, turn off phone, turn it back on 12 hours later to learn about the day's mission- 2 hours from that point to be ready to go). Minimum CPT hours is 3000 and plan on 18-24 months upgrade time. That being said, if you already have the hours, and say you're number 4 on the seniority list (and have the 18 mos), but the 3 FOs ahead of you don't have at least 3000 hours, you would get the nod for captain.

Additionally, if DPJ hires you (for a jet), you will not become a WU King Air pilot. You are being hired for the jet.

My question to the community, which isn't immediately answerable, is how long will Wheels Up use two different pilot pools? Since Wheels Up bought DPJ, will they really need GAMA too much longer?
