So if I get hired I would need to be FO/PIC qual'd FO for a bit first. Just about 300 total hours as of now. But lots of flying still to be done at my current job before id be on the job at Cape if I were to get hired. So im currious as to where I may get assigned.
What are the regular bases for FO's? What about brand new Capts, say middle of summer(ish) once id be done as an FO?
Thanks!

The embassy suites is 200$ a night normal rate. Not sure if there is a special rate or not yet. Would consider others nearby for the night.
Also, any idea how long the whole process is? Trying to find a departure from BOS that could help me avoid a hotel fees.
If your interview is in BOS, then just make sure you get a hotel on the field. They have shuttles that will take you from one hotel to another. I stayed in the embassy suites because I didn't want to be late. Other people found cheaper hotels. The interviews lasted about 2 hours for us. There was a 30 minute group presentation and then individual interviews that lasted about 20 minutes a person. When do you interview?

5th of next month. Yeah ended up goin to the embassy. A bit pricey but free breakfast, shuttle, and easiest since the interview is there.

Just saw on the Cape Air FB page that there is a new route being announced soon. Anyone have an idea what it is?

I'm wondering how often a pilot at cape would have to transition between regions on average. More than once or twice in their career there?

Well, it depends on the base you want. I just made my first transition and I'm hoping I can hold this base.

Anybody at Cape Air also fly for the Air Force Reserve or Guard? Does the schedule allow for one to be gone from time to time for military obligations?
