Is this true? Reference climbto350 ad. It states 'Upgrade time to Captain 3 years or less'.

At this time, I don't think anybody really knows. If the new TA is approved, maybe (just maybe) there will be some hiring for growth instead of just attrition, which will reduce upgrade times. If we don't get a new contract, who knows.

eh...
Yes currently ASA upgrade time is 3 years and falling. No growth forcasted, but lots of attrition. Attrition may slow a little if we sign this contract, but will still be pretty high. As stated above, maybe we can even get some growth having a contract.

What growth? It's swapping airframes not growth.

Never chase an upgrade. That can change tomorrow, not to mention three years from now.

Growth or not, ASA upgrade is looking like less than 2 years, not three.

I'm a Nov 06 hire, and if the training department can put only 20 a month through upgrade, I'll be in upgrade class by the summer of 08. If they can put 30 a month through class, it'll be even sooner than that.

If there is growth on the horizon, it could be even quicker than that.

Potentially thwarting this is the capability of the training department. I've heard rumors that the folks in the training department aren't too fond of the provisions of the new TA that involve them. Some are even talking about getting back on the line and leaving the training department.

You can't predict what will happen. I was awarded the left seat of the CRJ at 2 years and 4 months and within 6 months upgrade was 5 years.
