yea the old joke. If you were over 30 to get an interview at a major in 1977 you needed two logged lunar landings ?

NASA didn't schedule anyone for two lunar landings, but I bounced and in the low gravity came down a mile away, so I logged one touch & go and one full stop. :D

I wonder if they're getting nervous about pilot supply.

This from Frontier Airlines. A new pathway for college students from college to Frontier. Not much detail but it appears to leave out the intermediate step of regional flying between CFI and the airline...or maybe I've overlooked something:

The careers page at Frontier specifies this:

"500 hours jet/turbo-prop"

Pilot

"Prior to employment with Frontier Airlines, program participants will also need to be employed by Embry-Riddle as a flight instructor and must obtain the R-ATP required experience."
