700
Just wondering if at 700/110 I'm eligible to apply anywhere. I hear a lot of rumors, but doubt they're fact. The rumors are great and all, but does anyone know if there are any companies that really have lower minimums right now? thanks

Dunno?
ASA, Great Lakes, Piedmont, you could apply to Xpressjet but you really need at least 1000 and 200 for here now. Good luck

I might try Colgan, Pinnacle and Messaba and I hate to say it but MESA as well. Big Sky may also be hiring. Even if you dont meet the mins at some places send your stuff in anyway, at least show some interest and get a file started. Make sure you keep updating it. I know here at PSA they want 1000/100. It sounds like you only have a couple hundred more hours to go to get to the big 1000. If I were you I would fly as much as possible to hit that mark. Also once you get there you can start looking at some 135 stuff. I'm not sure exactly what 135 companies are looking for but its worth exploring. Good luck!

How about RamAir Cargo? FlightExpress? Maybe a little time in actual IFR learning to work the system, decision making, and even scaring yourself once or twice would make you a more valuable F/O when you do make the transition to the airline world.

Just my opinion.

Guys you do know the IFR 135 requirements are 1200TT, right? With 700 you could probably do VFR 135, though few companies seem to hire for that anymore. Good luck.

enough
go where

You could go alot of places but you should really consider if your ready to go or not. we have a bunch of new low time FOs and they all barely passed training and most of them are continuing to waterski behind the airplane. Be careful and know if you fail out of training it will follow you. Then again on the flipside this job really isn't that hard and maybe i'm a little bitter because I couldn't get a job till i had 1600 hours because a few years ago the industry was different. If you feel ready I jumpseat on Piedmont alot and the average new hire there seems to have 500 hours. I would stay at a flight school before i went to mesa though.

600/100 mins = ASA and XJET

However, that's not competitive.

Try Great Lakes, Commutair, Colgan. But still, you're not that competitive. Build more time.

Pinnacle requires 1000/200. I doubt Mesaba will take you with less than that either.

Not true. Two buddies of mine just left for pinnacle class. Both had around 850/130. Both CFI's. Pinnacle's chief called our flight school asking for anybody with any kind of time. One started a few weeks ago, and one started yesterday.

Asa???

What times are getting hired at ASA now? I have a buddy that didn't get on with around 2000 hours...around 800 jet..and a type rating that didn't get on. Was he over-qualified? Anyone know any numbers that are getting on?
