Default Express Jet Start Date 9/14/2015 CRJ

I have accepted a start date of September 14, 2015. Class is in ATL. Any one else have this start date? I chose the CRJ, any recommended study materials I should catch up on prior to training? Generally how long is the training? Do I get to choose 200/700/900 or is it assigned? See you in class!!

Glad I got in before the doom and gloomers. Welcome. I am on the 200 in ATL. The training is first rate. Just study what they give you, but study it thoroughly. The aircraft they give you will depend on what they have open at the time. You get to bid for aircraft and base according to seniority during Indoc.

Don't worry about studying before you show up. The training department is very good here, and they will let you know what you need to know and when. Study like mad during initial! You will get assigned a base and airframe in class. You can bid for it if there are choices, but the most senior will get the best choices.

Don't study before starting the class, they will guide you. The training is 5 days of basic indoc, 8 days of systems, 3 days of GEN OPS and 10 sessions of simulator. You will have FTD sessions, a written test and oral/procedures exam. After all of that, finally, simulator. Don't think it will be fast because they give you some days off, go prepared to stay in training for 7 to 8 weeks. You will have opportunities to go home but I don't recommend, unless you have something urgent, because you will have low seniority and that can be a pain in the [email protected]$% depending on what city you will commute from. If you need more info just PM me.

I dare you to try to ask that question in a more obnoxious way.

Nice job insulting a new employee AND an entire pilot group with six words without even addressing the concerns of the original post

Thanks! I was told that we get $300 a week. Do we also get per diem on top of that or is that only during trips? Also do the hotels have a fridge, microwave, stove, etc...Just for mental planning haha

A new hire will spend a year/year and a half in each seat and move on to a major. Every guy I fly with is 60+
