Kind of a crapshoot, but your QOL could actually be pretty good from the start. Generally 4 on - 3 off, with about 75-90 hours pay credit. Not too much reserve, unless you're the fourth FO at a base with only three lines.psysix said:What's the QOL for a hewhire?

He has been on the job for a week. He is still feeling special because he gets free soda and pretzels. I was in training with him he is a cat molester and married a guy in vermont. He is lucky I carried him through training.

Starting pay is more around 18000 (20.00/hr 1900, 21.00/hr saab with 75 hr guarantee). People are great, paid training (sort of - 50/day), and there are only 16 bases (IAH for Continental, and then a lot of the outbases for US/United). I've been told that most of the outbases that are only served by Colgan usually have empty seats (plus the jumpseat on saabs) for commuting.
Right now upgrades are around a year and not expected to go up by very much, so you should end up making captain's pay by the end of the second year.
I got an e-mail back from my app the day after I posted it, interviewed a weekk later and started training 2 weeks after that. Just finishing sim now, can't wait to get flying.
You should get a call by the weekend.jeff99gr said:Just sent my app in via airlineapps. Wondering how long it takes for a response and if Colgan is a good place to start for someone who is ready to move on from flight instruction.
