CheckandSet said:one more question! I sent my app in yesterday, do they call pretty quick for an interview or do they do all background checks first with all the other crap I sent in?

no lor, current crj capt at skywest though. where do you take the brain test? My app should be their today and I hope they don't take their time!Hawk Driver said:Did you already do the online brain test? Do you have an internal LOR?
If you have an LOR, it shouldn't take long. If you don't and meet all qualifications, it shouldn't take that long either, but a little longer than someone that has an LOR depending on how many MORE apps they get since the T/A.

Hawk Driver said:Did they do away with the seat lock/training contract? Someone else told me it was still in place...
Could do it really quick.... However you don't want to make that move, at least not a NJA. You will be seat locked as a FO for two years and you could miss out on a good bid you really want. I haven't read the TA language about FO to capt and seat locks so I could be wrong. My advice stay in the Ultra, upgrade in type, learn how NJA works. Then go to another jet...psysicx said:How long would it take to go from an Ultra FO to a G200 or Falcon FO?

You could be the most senior dude at the fractional and have the worst trips/longest duty days/and worst layovers for the week. I spent 2.5 years at the fractionals and really couldn't get past the fact that I would never be able to control my own destiny. It's the nature of the beast, but something to consider.
