Are you on the GJ Sep 15th class Saluki?
Nope not for me. I went back to live with the parents and get some things worked out with my life.

Not every class has an Embraer contingent, on average maybe every third class or so, and then it's only 6 to 8 people that get to learn Portugese. You can informally volunteer for the E120, but most candidates are selected by management. The company tends to put pilots with low TT/high ME in the E120.

E120 domicile is DEN.
B1900 domiciles include DEN and STL, likely with more to come, but its anybody's guess. MKE?

That's ok, there's a whole bunch of furloughed TSA guys that are going to be in classes. Right now it's only them and high time 121 guys. I'd look into it, but then again if you actually turned down an interview invite I'm sure they'd remember that.

Ya thats my plan part time here at SIU to finish up management and this other major I'm about to start. Hopefully I can bid trips around my school schedule which shouldn't be absolutely impossible.

Thanks for the info it looks like I would be better off in the 1900 tho which I wish wasn't so. Do you know how many hours call out they have? I've heard 4 hours but I'm about 2 hours max from STL from where I live now hopefully that would be enough.

Yes, you would hate to be remembered by ho-jets as turning down an interview.

That'll be pretty tough to do. Friends over there are routinely flying to the max of 100+ hours/month.

Ya I'm beginning to think it might not work out. I may just take 1 class a semester its usually 1 night a week for 3 hours I may be able to work something out with the teachers.

Plenty of us have done the distance learning thing while at Lakes, lots of work but doable. But brick-n-mortar classes are out of the question. 4, 5, and 6 days trips with 10 days off/month and rampant junior manning cannot be made consistent week to week to allow stuff like that.

Oh, and at the moment the basing is in serious flux, STL crews are doing the MSP flying, while DEN crews are doing the STL flying, it's typical fubar. Oh, but we have taken one old Big Sky airplane (sorry guys) so all our operational problems are over. And I have some beachfront AZ property to sell...

I did finish up school on line while at Colgan. The in person classes are totally out of the question there is no way that would be possible. Even only meeting with proctors to take the mid-term and final was kind of sketchy a few times and I used one of my old high school teachers so he could be pretty flexible on when I showed up and got the test done.

You have to be extremely dedicated to get it done this way. You will have to force yourself to read and get the online assignment done each week. Even if that means studying some in the crewroom on some airport appriciation sits. If you have any problem getting motivated to study for an in person class, or if you have a hard time learning just by reading and need to hear/see what the teacher does then you probably will not do good with the online stuff. If you think that might be a problem then stay at school for the extra year. Plus are you sure they even offer your other major online?

I wasn't planning on doing my major online. I don't think they even off it online to be honest. I was just hoping that I would be able to get to the classes since they take place once a week, and if I had to work out something with the teacher so be it. But I heard some new hiring info could be BS i guess we shall see in January but my eye is still on GLA I'm not a fan of the SJS.
