remember that whenever using hourly earnings compared to a regualar 40 hr/week job you need to half that, putting you a couple dimes above minimum wage. now thats the respect im sure you thought you would get when you got into aviation huh??

Mins per the website are the same. However, the company is posting fliers that basically say we'll take street captains if they have the ATP minimums, and that our posted mins. are "preferred qualifications."

I sent them my resume when I had 380 tt 20 multi and I got an interview offer. I never went though, I came to Scenic instead.
