This is not true... When i got hired on, they want me to fly asap, even when i was finish up with my last 2 weeks as a CFI. When i get finish teaching (during the day) i would fly night at Aeroflight. I told them I wanted Portland for my base, and when i finish up my 2 weeks on my last job I was on my way down to portland with a route. That's how it's been for the new hires.flytheblue said:I heard this secondhand earlier this year, but the new pilots are usually on reserve and don't fly very often. A friend of mine was only flying every other day and maybe getting around 10 hours a week. Not really the timebuilding job unless you want to stay in the Seattle area.
