The first couple batches of FOs will probably be upgrading to Captain fairly quickly, so I can see why they would want higher flight times than some other regionals.

My question is why are they even advertising for FO's when I know of several captain applicants that have never been called for an interview.

If they are looking for people that can be captains in 3 months why not call these people?
