My friend is dating a Delta 757 captain. He is 34 years old.....I had no idea Delta had captains that young these days. What is the time to command at Delta right now?

A captain on the 757 would have to have at least 17 years with the company. You do the math.

That would be very hard to do. Most of the 767 CA are in the 45-55 year old range. Most are on the top end of this range.

Probably some new hire on the ER with a type who thinks since he sits in the left seat while the boss man is on break, that's makes him a captain. Tool.

I recently flew with one of the most junior 75/76 captains at DL. He was a 91 hire.

Methinks this is probably a Connection pilot blowing some sunshine up someone's whazoo.

767 captain is only as junior as '97 hire. Youngest possible age is 38 for captain. Just have to look it up.

Just curious, how many guys did Delta hire during the big hiring period between 1997 and 2001?

Yep! Or also equally likely, some Comair guy claiming that he is a "Delta Air Lines, Inc." captain.

He's probably a FO but says he's a captain because he has a type rating

Hey, I was a CR7 captain at 29 and that sounds alot like 757 to me. That e175 sounds like 75 too. I did fly with an ATL 88 captain who was 34 but that is impossible on the 75.

There are 3020 Delta pilots hired between 10/02/96 and 2001.

Of them, 2900 were hired between January 1997 and 2001.

Delta has hired 674 pilots since hiring started in 2007.

The most junior DAL 767 captain was hired in early 1997.

If you are type rated then techinally you could be Capt.
yep, if the real captain dies, you get to be in charge until you get on the ground. Your airline will be so impressed that on your next trip you get to be........an FO.
