New Hire Classes and Drops
 
Now that the company is consistently updating class dates I figured I would start a place for information to potential new hires. (Hopefully the significant gaps in hiring are over)

the company has started posting class dates on our company portal. Today they announced a march 6 class date.

It appears that the plan is to update planned classes about 2 months out. Here is what we know for now:

JAN 23 (32 in class)
FEB 6
FEB 20
MAR 6

There are NO hard numbers posted for class sizes, just the class dates. These are also furlough classes, so expect some spots to be filled by the 200ish furloughs still out through fall 2019.

Unfilled vacancies over the past few months have been:

737 - EWR, SFO, LAX
320 - EWR, SFO, LAX
756 - EWR, DCA, SFO, LAX

Last few classes have been given 737 and A320.

Good luck to all!

Sweet! Good idea and good info. It also looks like besides the December 12th class which had 12 people in it, the rest of the classes are averaging just over 30ish per class

Thanks for the updates MoP! I'm in the pool now, hoping to get to class this summer after I retire from the AF. Counting the days...

FWIW, just flew w/an interview capt. Said he had 4 days of interviews scheduled next month. Also said PCs next fall may be moved to accommodate more training.

The vicsous circle of canceling recurrent/landings for new hires, only to father push back pilots that need landings and are therefore no good.

A PC is a yearly proficiency check. We donít use those at UA anymore but many of us still use the acronym. UA now does 9 month checks fist is an MV (maneuvers validation) then 9 months later is an LOE ( line oriented evaluation). Then repeat.......
