Congrats - now start working on your flows, memory items, and limitations... that'll make your time in newhire training much easier.So for people in the pool at F9 calls when out today saying no classes till “end of the year”. As for me sounds like I’m starting at NK in July or August! Looking forward to it!
The aviation Gods smiled upon young Jedi.It depends. I pretty much fly something every block, usually a four day.
The flying is pretty good out of ORD, honestly; there’s a very good variety including some Central America, some Florida, some northeast and some southwest. I enjoy it immensely.
Even when they make me fly with @Nark (or especially).
Am buying a house in Elgin.
More like, sick and tired of commuting now. (And trying to explain to a lender that the hit in income I took is temporary - but either way, I'm moving to Chicago/environs, forthwith.)1st yr pay and already buyin a house? You're like, real airline pilot territory now.
There is a decent amount of daytime flying out of there, but the majority of it seems to be redeye-day sleep-redeye-sort of day sleep-somewhere-LAS. I got tired just looking at the bid packet.Is LAS solely a redeye base for you, like it was for AWA back in the day?
I had 3900 TT and over 500 tPIC when I was called in for the interview and I was by some margin the lowest time guy in my group. I'm pretty sure the only reason I got the call was because i had an internal letter of rec. For what ever thats worth.I have to ask, what type of times are actually competitive?
There's a few in ORD but not like LAS. The worst one here I've done used to be a 3 day FLL for the first night, then a red-eye turn back to FLL about 6am go to a hotel filled with cruise ship folks drinking and screaming then fly the 9pm(ish) flight back to ORD. When we had that one it was always in open time up here.I like the odd redeye - but doing them weeks on end just does not push my buttons that much. And sounds like a recipe for exhaustion.
I interviewed with in excess of 1000 TPIC and with the exception of one flight operations instructor intern in my class most everyone in the room was similarly experienced.I had 3900 TT and over 500 tPIC when I was called in for the interview and I was by some margin the lowest time guy in my group.
