Anyone on here know what the upgrade time was back in the early and mid-90's? On the ATR?

Back in the day, I sent them an application. A week later, they sent me a post card with a class date on it, no interview.
That was back in another time.

97-98 the ATR upgrade to the Rock was about 18-20 months for a little bit.

It's the damnedest thing. Out of the clear blue I remembered a conversation I had with a Simmons FO that I had just met. He casually mentioned he had been with the company 4 years. I remember at the time thinking that it seemed like a long time to be an FO. This was somethink like 15 years ago. Anyway, that's what prompted the question.

Always thought the ATR was a neat airplane. Would love to have flown it.
