I agree Delta owes me nothing. I just want the chance to interview just like every other pilot out there. Just ticked I might get bypassed by some 250 hr kid with an airport management degree down the road!!

I would rather see the whole regional industry go away!! Total joke!!

I wouldn't sweat it, these programs have a way of disappearing and/or not delivering on any of their promises.

You have a chance to interview, you've always had it. Did you apply when their window opened in 2007 and 2010?

Not really I work for Comair!! Being hired after the strike that did nothing really doesn't mean anything these days!! My app has been on file for about 3 years.

We've hired CMR people. The rumor that they're being filtered out is just that.

Network, network, network.

Fill out the app, network, network, network, network, and be patient. By the time any of this stuff comes to pass, those who desire to do so will have long past had their opportunity to interview and move on. One thing people need to realize is that things are in the works that benefit all who have contributed to the Delta Connection portfolio. This is being kicked around, and discussed, and has some merit. Nothing to worry about or get worked up over. A guaranteed interview means little- it's the applicant that counts.

"Things have been in the works" for years. All that's materialized so far has been a hosejob after a hosejob.

Right now, my thoughts are that when I get a snot-nosed, crap-stain FO from this program and he/she spouts off on they "are just waiting for my Delta interview"

Already had one!!!

This will never work unless less than 1500 TT is approved by the government.

Winner! The people at WMU are just putting an EASA-style frozen ATPL program into place so they can capitalize on the soon-to-be-suggested pilot training rule changes as soon as they become law.

The 1500- hour rule will not be in place for more than a few months, if it is allowed to take force at all, and programs like this will be putting 200-hour pilots in the right seat of mainline aircraft....just like Europe-or almost every other country in the world.

The airlines aren't stupid. The 1500-hour rule will not be allowed to stop their plans to turn pilots into technical-college educated labor.

........and they'll be their own worst enemy when they finally do interview. Usually, from my experience, this sort of talk is used as a crutch to perform a mediocre, at best, job in the seat they occupy now. The "I have an entitlement to move on" crowd always end up making the worst crewmembers. What they don't understand is that the tone they set now, and the habbits they develope while in the CRJ will carry on with them for the durration of their career.

Just another way to get some kids parents to cosign a $100000 note for a job that pays Dick.

The last time this program was done, it was not for the majority of pilots, if you know what I mean. This was definately the fast track to Delta but you had to meet certain qualifications that could not be gained through life experiences, rather one must be born with these "qualifications". The program worked great for those in it and I personally knew two students from the program that are both at Delta without ever making it to the left seat at a regional.

Don't hate the player, hate the game and the game-maker is Delta.

Delta isn't going to need pilots directly from universities for a VERY long time, but it may get to that point. Don't kid yourself- this program isn't to benefit DAL, it's to benefit the regionals, whom will very much need pilots from a shrinking pool of applicants. It's Expressjet that benefits from this, not DAL or the pilot.
