Why not just stay where you are and build more time, instead of just going someplace else for the heck of it!!!!

At 1000 hours you can't afford to be too picky. Commuting sucks, take whatever is closest to home or somewhere you want to move to

What?
I agree with say_again, just because you have 1000 hours doesn't mean you need to take the next airline job that comes your way. Just keep building time and analize where you would like to work/based, then go after those company's.

FWIW...

I noticed that you just registered in Sep.

You might want to spend some more time getting to know the content of the 100's of posts similar to yours that have innumerable replies answering the same question. This msg board has a wealth of good info. as well as a plethora of worthless posts. I'm gathering from your profile that you've been flying for maybe two years at most. As I'm sure you will see shortly, your eagerness to occupy an airline cockpit seat will draw many of the "worthless" category of replies.

Look over the board some more and I'm sure you'll get plenty of info to mull over.


Edit: Wow, I jsut posted this and already 5 people replied before I could!

Dunno?
Back to school is where you should go. j/k its going to be hard to get on anywhere right now with the state of the industry. Its a great job but you may be limited in you options at least right now.

Good luck boss

send as many resumes out to regionals as you can and someone will call you for an interviews... do as many as you can...alot to learn from different interviews...then if you get into different pools make your choice there.. good luck

Let me get this straight, you got on the Flight Info board and asked us where to go?

CHQ is a winner - they are growing like kudzu and have the E170 which will be the airplane of the future.

Skywest and Express Jet ( Continental Express ) are also good bets.

Or go to Vegas and put your money on the black seven.

Here's another question along this line...How does it look when someone (me)puts his resume in every way possible...email, fax, snail mail, online app....some companies have all 4 methods available. would i look desirerably eager(even though i cant spell), is it over the top do do all(and i mean like, all on the same day), or does it just look so annoying that im hurting my chances of getting a call. I figure, the more ways i get it in, the better, but thats an opinion from the cockpit of a skyhawk. any takers?

Wasn't the same thing said about the CRJ100 and E145ER when they came out? Now, a wopping 8 years later, they're all junk. :)

Why do you want to take what you can get? How is the QOLwhere you are now?

Continental is hiring, which is kind of funny since the news just said they were cutting back on flights.

Yeeessss....come to freight....come to the "dark" side....it is your dessssstiny. :D

But seriously, get 200 more hours (and meet the other requirements: x/c, night, etc) and you'll become much more marketable. These days it seems that everyone thinks they HAVE to go to the regionals because they're gobbling everyone up. No offense to you RJ guys! There are more options out there once you hit the magic 1200. :) Good luck!
