Airlines have already started hiring based on the ATP rule. Chances of getting hired under 1000TT is getting slim.

Also you wont build that time fast. I only got 450 hours last year flying freight. It is slower than you need to get hired before the ATP rule.

If a pilot goes to say Eagle Jet and does the 250 or 500 hour program and gets hired before the August 2013 deadline, are they then ok? Is the FAA going to come in and furlough all FO's that do not have the required hours at that date?
Seems like a pretty big risk for all of that money.

Talked to one of our CP's the other day and he said as of aug 2013, if you don't meet the mins, you are dequaled from 121 ops. That's as it stands now...will there be a waver, don't know but it sounds really bad for anyone not having it.

If you do a p2f program such as Eaglejet, you will have the P2F stink on you that you will carry the rest of your career. Some companies won't touch you with a ten foot pole and other pilots will look down on you.

It really depends. The Eagle Jet program for the AMF portion is right seat time in aircraft that do not require an SIC. If you have the money you can pay for it and not take someone job in the process. I have had some of the Korean FOs that went through the program. One day they will be there and we operate two crew. The next day I would be single pilot. If the program didn't exist it would all be single pilot.

That said, there are better things to spend your money on in the U.S. Overseas pilots may actually get some use out of the program because of the lack of options to build time in their respective country.

The transport jet portion of the EJI program is definately buying a job and would carry that "stench" you talk about.

After what they pulled on me in 2010, I'm throwing the baby out with the bathwater because it was low and unbecoming of a professional organization.

Almost all the pilots doing it are from countries without a GA industry, and it is the way they have to break into their respective national carriers. It'll do nothing but cost you a fortune if you're American, because the time is looked down upon here.
 
This is the thread that brought me to the forum.

I operate under the assumption that if something seems to good to be true it usually is and therefore was doing research on Eaglejet. I note that this thread is 6 years old, but would I be correct in assuming that the info in these replies is still valid?

The replies have been valid since before they were replies. The replies will be valid after the world ends. The replies are valid a priori.

Do. Not. Pay Eagle. Jet. One. Cent.

Anyone from EJ have any positive input ? It seems the only replies are from the " Nay Sayers"?

From my research, EJ may make a lot of "Sense/Cents" from business owner/airline prosepective, let me explain;
EJ provides
-Real World Flying (IFR)
-professional training (flight safety etc.)
-Multi engine / Single Multi Turbo Prop etc
-Scheduled routes

I think it compliments experience gained from low time flying jobs (towing gliders/banners , Instructing etc.).
In my opinion If you can afford it ,it makes sense/cents

If you are operating as a required crewmember in a commercial operation, you should probably be receiving funds, not giving them funds.
