There were some "rumors" going around this forum a little while back about AirTran possibly dropping the 500 121 PIC requirement.

I was just wondering if any AirTran guys/ladies have heard anything more about it happening. Thank you for any replies.

As far as I know they have NOT dropped that requirement. I saw and spoke with Stephanie this morning at the Training Center where she was conducting interviews. I asked about the background of who she was interviewing, and the response she gave me was a whos/whos list of Part 121 and Military Pilots.

She never mentioned any Part 91 or 135 applicants..... so this still follows the line that I know that only 121 PIC/Military equivilent applicants are getting called.

Take what I say for what it is worth.... and hang in there. That 121 requirement will eventually change.

FL717 is right the minimums have NOT changed, however, recently there have been applicants who have made it to the interview without the minimums and have been hired. Some with NO 121 PIC time, some with not enough, and a military guy or two who didn't even have the total time requirement. Bottom line...get some internal recommendations, go to an Air Inc. job fair, and apply for the job, you never know. Good Luck!

Enough
A Lear Captain at Airnet was just recently hired by AirTran and has no 121 experience. From the rumors flying here, he bugged the HR department until they gave him an interview. Also, I believe he attended a job fair or two prior to being called.

Be VERY careful about "bugging" the AirTran HR Department. There is a very thin line between "bugging" them and expressing a continued interest.

I say this because I know for a FACT that there is a couple people out there who have called, e-mailed, mailed, and faxed the HR Department every week for months on end.

These people will NEVER EVER get called for an interview because they have annoyed the he!! out of the wrong people for "bugging" them.

Continued interest... yes.... harassing..... NO. If you have to ask what that difference is.... you ARE more than likely a stalker...LOL!

Food for thought.
