Upgrade Times?
 
Hey all -- I was curious as to what the latest upgrade times are for those joining as a new FO with no previous 121 experience. Looked at a couple of older threads but we know that this always in flux.

Any comparisons to Envoy or Endeavor upgrade times? I know historically it's been longer than some other regionals, but is the time decreasing at all?

Any info would be appreciated!

Just went to a recruiting event in Phoenix for the Cadet program and the upgrade times are still 2.5 - 3 years. Might drop a little in the future as hiring starts ramping up but RAH seems to have more captains that stay for an extended time than other airlines

Industry changes so fast that chasing upgrade times should be one of the bottom things on your list when choosing a Regional. Upgrade times today won't look anything like upgrade times 2 or 3 years from now.

54 CA vacancies system wide. Expect upgrade times to drop to 2.5 years and additional flying/aircraft to come online.

Don't confused vacancies with ugprades. Those are vacancies that current captains can bid on. We've been having ~50 vacancies but usually half of those are upgrades.

We havenít had a ~50 captain vacancy in a long time, probably not since the Republic/Shuttle merger. I think the largest most recent vacancy had 36. While agree that this will not equal out to 54 true upgrades, I think it will significantly effect the upgrade time here.

Unless we shrink there are usually backfill awards filled by FOs.

RAH is where careers go to finish, not start. Many lifers, not bad, just the reality.
