Now that Navyflyer, Malter and animal house have gotten the phone call, I thought I'd take a stab at updating some of the poolie info. Any new info I found is in red below.

Buddy of mine interviewed 28 Feb/1 Mar. Those dates have not been reflected in any of the postings I've seen. He said there were two groups, an AM and a PM group. He has not been good about keeping up with who and how many are in the pool. Maybe there are others out there who may know numbers for these days..........

animal - thanks for the floaties and the info. I looked through every post in the 4 poolie threads and didn't find the number in the 11/25 Sep classes. malter, that was what I figured. I didn't think we had all the interview dates captured. I was offered the 9th or 16th of May so there's probably another one missing. Rumors had the pool near 300 and I could only find the 210 so far. It looks like 40-50 a month are being trained in 2 classes for the 727. thanks for all the info....

Any words on these guys. Rumors about the interviews are everywhere, but who is getting them? Do you know when they went for M&G

Gouge from First Day 28 Aug New Hire Class

OK Guys...here's some gouge/notes from our first day of indoc for the 28 Aug new hire class:

- 25 guys total
- 14 civilian
- 11 military

...so I guess that debunks the myth that "FEDEX only hires military pilots"

- 9 FO slots
- 16 SO slots

...will be handed out via seniority (SSN)...we should know by next week what slots we got

...Training Dept is expecting to train 50 new hires in Sep & Oct, and then taper off over the holiday season to about 30 per month and continue at 30 per month thru 2007

...about 40 more new hire FO slots after our class...then concentration on 727 SOs...thus, next few classes could still have a mix of FOs and SOs

...with our class FEDEX now has 4,697 pilots

...retirements are expected to avg approx 100 per month for next 10 yrs, and then increase to 200 per month

Hope this helpful in some way to all still in the pool and those waiting for that interview or meet & greet.

Aloha

Before people go berzerk, I think it's closer to 100/year than 100/month.

I do wonder how many folks will bail after we get a contract(over 60 guys).

Purpled beat me to it.

I thought maybe my new math was busted 'cause I came up with 12000 retirements in 10 years. I'd be thrilled to be the top MD11 Captain in 4.5 years!!!

Oh well. It was fun for a second.

Just bustin' chops here. Have fun in class. See you soon. (Maybe)

Is "0" the low or high social security number for senority purposes.

Specifically, would someone be at an advantage if their last four was 0123 or 9876?

If one is in the front of the class can they still choose SO over FO, or do they just get awarded it? thankyou
