We are have been awarding a lot of upgrade classes lately. The most recent EMB upgrade was awarded 4 days ago and the most junior guy in the class was hired on 1/31/2005 and he's going to be based in FAT.

That is fairly typical. However, I've seen upgrade time in less than 4 months with previous experience. The current upgrade mins are 2,500 TT and 1,000 of 121 time or equivalent. These mins can be amended based on operation need.

Skywest is ramping up for major hiring.

A/C assignment is based very largely on operational need, then on previous experience. The company says they try to put everyone in the EMB and give CRJ transitions to people already on the seniority list. However this is not always the case.


Hope this helps! Skywest is a great place to work. Hope to see you here soon.

They plan to hire 400 more just by the end of this year. Classrooms at the training center are full at the moment.
Upgrade time in EMB = 1.5 - 2 yrs
Jr. EMB base = FAT
Jr. CRJ base = ORD

Most who have been through the interview would probably agree that it is very straightforward.
