Default New Hire - E175 vs CRJ

I have read and posted on this subject before...but as dynamic as things seem to be, thought I would try to nail down the current state of the union. I have a Jun class date on the E175...I have been hearing from some folks to plan on under 10 hours a month while on E-reserve, others have said they got much more. I can swap over to the CRJ if I give some heads up, but I'm leaning towards sticking with the E175. I have seen some news on new basing and new jets recently, so just wondering what new hires are actually logging (on both jets) for the first 3 months/6 months?

Thanks for info...I am a retiring USAF non-current pilot with 2,500TT, WWYD?

By the time you hit line you will fly more then that.. they ďpre-trainedĒ for the 45 aircaft we take between now and fall.. very agressive schedule.. if you plan on upgrading as fast as you can. You may want to do the CRJ unless you want LGA base.

Copy...I will be moving to DEN and commuting from there. Would hope to end up there after 6-8 months. How many of the new hires will be LGA based? I guess I was planning on MSP/ORD right off the bat.

Knowing you want Denver. I would say ERJ. Unless you want to do Aspen CRJ DMA . Only advanced of the CRJnis a COS option.. but you could get involved in training on the ERJ. They are looking for instructors.

Donít come here if you want Houston.. (at the moment) those crews are on pins and needles.. but the last guy to get warded IAH was hired 10/17. So probably just finished IOE.. the bid that just closed 2 FOís weíre awarded IAH.. Houston is very rumor heavy at Mesa. Republic just opened a base. XJT. Who knows...We really shouldnít have a base there. So that may be a sign that we may grow there if the ball drops on one of the other regionals there...

Still no discussion of hours....any 3-6 month FO new hires (CRJ or E175) care to share what they logged since hitting the line?

I would not come here (175) unless you are okay with LGA. Especially starting class (June) on the front side of a big delivery cycle necessitating a new junior base that will be difficult to staff.
