Default Regionals hiring below minimums?

I keep seeing on "aviationinterviews.com" about applicants with less than the new ATP mandated minimums being offered class dates. Are the the new regs being change already?

No, they may offer a class date under the stipulation that you meet the ATP or Restricted ATP mins by the time your class date comes.

If there's any hope for this profession you should really hope this never happens. I know you're anxious to get here, and we want you here too, but the raising of the flight time minimums are the best thing to ever happen to this industry.

ftorrent,

this isn't the first time that you have posted on this matter. I am currently chipping away at hours to meet mins, so you can do the same. Quit hoping for an easy ride. The 1500 rule is great thing for pilots.

SkyWest will take you with 975, 1225, or 1475 depending on what R-ATP mins you fall under. They will interview you even before you hit RATP-25 mins if you're within 3 or 4 months of getting your time.
