number of hours to get hired


New Member
Does anyone know how many hours students have when they get hired by the "regional Airline Placement Partners"

What I'm trying to get at is whether its students with basiclly zero time going throught the program and getting hired, and if so how many hours that have at that time, or is it prior military / roterheads with tons of hours that are actually getting the jobs

Believe it or not, ACA is hiring a lot of ATA graduates with only 400 hours. The "catch" is that they must first undergo a 90-day (approx.) unpaid internship. I know it's not a very attractive proposition to work for free but it could save you a lot of time (i.e. you don't have to wait until you get 800-1200 hours).

I don't think it's a hard and fast rule but if you have a 4-year degree and/or significantly more than 400 hours you can bypass the internship.
