I never even applied there. I wouldn't be willing to sign their open ended contract, so it was a moot point to me. I am waiting for some slots to open up to get an interview with SkyWest scheduled.

didn't want to sign it either but it pays the bills and my other cjos have been delayed over and over and are coming up on a year. also it's not open ended. the max is 5 years but you could do it in 3.5 if you hustle to make CA. or pay the penalty and leave early.

anyway GL!

Large Pt 141 School Check Airman
Meets all the reqs for R-ATP
1800 Total Time, including 229XC (so I can't get an ATP and immediately bounce to Spirit)
1 Cert Checkride Fail - CFI SEL Flight
No Accidents/Incidents
No DUIs/speeding tickets etc

Can anyone provide insight as to why?? I want to make sure my app is better for next time...short of me making a mistake on my app. I can't review it at all so I don't know if I did.
I got TBNT as well this week after applying, no interview. Just shy of 1800 hours, a little over 300 turbine since I was in the time frame of all regionals stopping hiring of FOs and I took a turbine job to get out of the CFI world.

Double checked my app and there were no errors. I guess they think Iíll bounce quickly and not worth hiring me?

Apply ulcc

The regionals are back in the normal universe where they have more applicants than spots. Wouldnít take it personally.

300 hours turbine? Dude apply to United, theyíre hiring guys/gals with 1,800 and no college degree from Frontier every class. When you get 500 hours turbine apply to Southwest.

FYI I spoke with someone recently who was around your stats, got the TBNT at SkyWest but hired at Southwest. Heís at Delta now.

I should have added in itís all single engine turbine and no ATP. Iím still short on XC hours and only qualify for restricted.
