It wasn't long ago that "ComyAir" was known as the "pay to play airline"...I would assume all of there Captains had to pay the 10k in training fees...isn't aviation wonderful...we used to make fun of the guys who used to pay for Continental Express and Comair jobs...jmoskydiverdriver said:1, no
2, Depends on several factors, but right now it's running just over a year for new FO's.
No Problem! ha ha...Hey about five years ago I had a friend that I got hired at the commuter I was flying at, instead a week before his class he decided to interview and accept employement with ComyAir. Yes ComyAir is a much better place if you plan on staying at the Regional level, but lets face it we all just need the time and experience and were off to a major. In his case he is a RJ captain at ComyAir, but I am a S80 driver at AA.skydiverdriver said:It's running about 2.5 years to make captain at Comair. Thanks AA for reminding us, again, that we used to have pft. I'm sure we all really need to keep hearing that, over and over and over. I will never get tired of hearing it, and I thank you so much for mentioning it.
BTW, I did not pft..thanks.
Ummm, Where to start? "Goof" uhh, I would say this makes you sound like a child and not me. "As much as experience as me", I doubt that a EMB 120 can compare to a previous I.O.E. 2 typed check airman at a commuter and a MD-80 f/o, but enough with the comparisons as we all know time doesn't matter, experience does and I think I have you beat there. As far as ComyAir, pay to play is concerned, take it easy Pal I didn't make it up, although I find it a funny line. I have friends at essentially all the Majors, UAL, CAL, LUV, etc. and when I needed help they had no problem is assisting me to attain my goals, being they were friends. Seeing how the economy is today I think it would be in your best interest to make friends on these web-sites, rather then find offense in the opinions one posts here. P.S. what is the GTW weight of the EMB 120? Take careGuam360 said:This is great, a goof like AA , gets a job and slams the rest of us. nice going.
No one really plans on staying at a regional, what is a regional anyway...
Airtran is as much as a regional as any.
No offense to Airtran by the way.
What is ´Comyair´anyway, you sound like a child.
I didn´t pay for training either, I have as much experience as you, but that is not the point, I can hold CRJ Capt, but I am frozen in the EMB'120 for now.
Upgrade has only been less than a year on the Brasilia, before the strike.
Take it easy, we are trying to keep our jobs and make a bettter place to work and consider those that have lost theirs.
