UPS Aug 18th Class...
Well folks, I thought I would be joining RVR1800 and Gucciboy in the July class but It's all filled up. Originally I was slated for it but I think they reduced it by 2#'s. Anyways, got the official word this week for the Aug. 18th class. I think RVR posted the breakdown but here it is again.

11 756 FO's......
5 dom. SDF 756
3 intl. SDF 756
3 ONT 756

The medical was "as advertised". The Doc said the only problem I had was a bad case of prune hands...;)

I can't wait to be part of a great company.
Thanks again for all the info...So who's joining me in SDF?

Well follks, here is my obligatory (1800 RVR), almost weekly post for my fellow poolies. The above post from Lake is the last info I received. I did hear (unofficially) that HR was recently quoted as saying that "most", but not all current poolies would get the call this calendar year. Whatever that means.

No numbers on current pool level or who has been called for the August class.

Anyone? Anyone?

Hang in there folks. Someday.....

Well I just got off the phone with "Buzz" Thompson and got a 18 Aug class date (did physical last week). He said that the class is not full and there were total 11 slots (2 of those may go to Mgt pilots) as indicated already. Good luck everyone!!!!...calls should be coming out this week.

Hawg, way to go on the thread posting. I was beginning to worry that you would fall behind, but you came through with flying brown colors! :D

Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys...

Jetlaggy,
I am orginally from the west coast and maybe in 1-2 years would like to go back but can't afford it on first year. So either intl. or dom. SDF is good with me. You got me beat. I'm 33 and guessing I'll be in the bottom 3... I did hear that an earlier class of 75's ONT went fairly senior.
See ya there.

If the rumer control is right all you guys are going to the 75 or 76. Great plane, both of them, currently doing international in both. Congrats,

Be gentle, I'm new!

My first posting guys. I've been reading since I learned about flightinfo about a month ago. I too got called by UPS for a medical and a possible Aug 18th class. I go on the 28th. I'm 49 ---I hope this doesn't tick anyone off.

Good to see so much valuable info posted here. I'll try to maintain the same excellent level of quality. Hope to meet you guys in perso soon!

What would tick us off?

By the way, stay away from flightinfo....it will suck you in and you will become a junkie like me. :)
