ohh, and btw - spirit at age 22? i call BS. Sure it's a ********************ty airline to fly for, but not that young when there's so many guys on the street.

what- did his trust fund daddy belong to the same country club as the hiring manager? What a puke.

Actually Humpty Diddle did a small Ab-Initio program with the Riddlers to see if they could go from a Chickenhawk to an Airbus and succeeded, except there was one problem!!! Spirit was not the best choice for a career airline...

The A320 must be a really easy airplane. All those FMS 101 classes they do at emory dribble sitting hours at a time on a simulated flight really paid off for the guy.

I am not defending this at all, however here are the facts as I remember...

Spirit hired 8 ERAU people because the DO, at the time, was a ERAU graduate and he thought it would be nice to give something back to ERAU.

The 8 were given 100 hours of IOE, which they planned for, I think one went over the 100 hours.

They had to fly with a check airman once a month or every other month or something like that to track their proficiency. They were scheduled to have a PC at 6 months and one at 12 months again to check their proficiency.

Man,that's pretty bad when half your multi time was IOE.
