Great point, makes perfect sense.

Well, from what I've heard, it's a stellar gig and great opportunity to grow as a pilot so I wouldn't be surprised at all if somebody that showed up with the intent of leaving at 15 stuck around. Needless to say, I'm just a tad jealous of those getting the call for that July class date!

How do you like working with the Apex avionics on the NG?

Either way though, no one knows what a hiring board is looking for other than the hiring board itself. So if you think you'd want to work here, apply. It's that simple.

The Honeywell Apex is incredible. I keep learning new stuff all the time.

Very very valid point - you and Gretzky have it right - miss 100% of the shots we don't take. Sounds like it's time to shoot the puck!

Getting to the fun technical stuff - how would you compare to a Perspective/Avidyne/general G1000-esque glass setup? Favorite part of the system? It's always interesting to hear about the pros-cons of each avionics suite.

Thanks again for all of your help and insight - I'm certain everybody reading appreciates it and I certainly do, too.

Best.

I've used the avidyne maybe 5 times in the past but I have over 1000 hours with the G1000, and granted it's been a few years since I've used the G1000, the Apex blows it out of the water. The overall experience isn't even close in my mind. But even the G1000 is at least 10 times more advanced than anything you'll see at a regional unless that regional flies the E170/175.

If you have glass cockpit experience, it greatly helps in your training here. Especially the basic concepts of how an FMS works, the different modes of an auto pilot system, etc. Knowing your way around that stuff takes a lot of stress away during training so you can concentrate on flying. It sounds silly but it's so true

Any idea what the pay if for a FO? Also if they do CASS? What a typical schedule is like? Thanks!
