Default Upgrade Times by Base and Equipment

There have been a lot separate threads created where people are asking the times to hold a base or upgrade. I figured we could create a single thread and update it to keep this info in one place.

The following data is based on the most junior pilot in the base according to the public pilot recruitment page, sorted by the most junior captain. Here is the URL for that page, halfway down you will see a domicile map where you can click a tab titled "Seniority".
Pilot Jobs » SkyWest Airlines

The accuracy is plus or minus 2 months given lag between new classes, the recruitment page being updated, and lazy math. It may also have errors.

It does not show the time on property for recent upgrade awards, just what we call the "plug" in the base. If someone wants to go through the exercise of figuring that out please be my guest - assuming we are allowed to post this type of info.

Upgrade Junior to Senior (months on property) as of March 2019
Code:
Equipment/Base	FO	Capt
CRJ	DTW	1	14
CRJ	ORD	2	15
CRJ	MSP	4	16
CRJ	ATL	5	17
CRJ	IAH	4	27
CRJ	DFW	4	27
ERJ	LGA	1	33
CRJ	LAX	4	33
CRJ	COS	5	33
CRJ	DEN	5	35
CRJ	FAT	2	36
CRJ	SFO	3	39
ERJ	ORD	2	42
CRJ	PSP	3	44
ERJ	DEN	7	46
CRJ	SLC	14	50
ERJ	BOI	4	53
ERJ	LAX	4	53
CRJ	TUS	9	54
ERJ	SAN	7	62
CRJ	PHX	10	62
ERJ	SFO	5	77
ERJ	SEA	24	85
ERJ	PDX	15	99
ERJ	SLC	3	137
Upgrade Junior to Senior - West Coast (months on property) as of March 2019
Code:
Equipment/Base	FO	Capt
CRJ	LAX	4	33
CRJ	FAT	2	36
CRJ	SFO	3	39
CRJ	PSP	3	44
ERJ	LAX	4	53
ERJ	SAN	7	62
ERJ	SFO	5	77
ERJ	SEA	24	85
ERJ	PDX	15	99
I'm also attaching a chart (.png file) based on the last several months of data on the pilot recruitment page to show the trends.

Hope this is helpful and can reduce the number of threads.

Looking at the Current DVR (vacancy report) like i said 6 months ago. We will hit “street” Captains again.. (disclaimer OO doesn’t hire street captains, but someone in NH class will probably get a upgrade offer, like what happened last year this time)

I'm going to guess that ERJ CA in SLC goes down to 8yrs or so as well on this next round of awards.

CRJ captain in SLC down to about 3 1/2 years now. A bunch of pilots getting SLC in all seats. Probably about 60-70 on this new bid.

I'm interviewing soon and am new to the airline industry, is there a way to see which of the SoCal domiciles has 1) the most flying available, 2) most flexible schedules, and 3) what the typical routes are? Or is this all seniority based?

I'm trying to figure out which of the three, LAX, SAN, PSP has the best quality of life. I'll be moving to the domicile and don't care which aircraft I fly.

Yes. When you get access to SWOL go to PBS tab. Look at pairings, bid info, and bid transparency links.....
