Just curious what the training is like at Chataqua. Plus, how do they determine if you go to the 170 or the 145?
Before you apply, might I suggest you learn how to spell Chautauqua. That would be an instant trashcan app.JetFumes said:

Good point... to answer the question of the first gentleman I would say the upgrade is 1 year 7 months to about 2 years. There is going to be a lot of growth with the 170. I have been w/ chq 1 year & 2 months and I should be close to upgrade sometime inbetween January and March. Hope this helps, best of luck.low-key said:The upgrade will eventually stop. A big reason is this: Not too many senior heads are going to the 170. When they start going to the 170, they will be taking the captain slots. The 145's are going away, thats already underway, so figure it out for yourselves. Soon the 145's will be gone and the upgrade will not be the same because we will be getting A/C but also losing A/C.
Hey, I hope you didn't think I was mad because I haven't upgraded. I am just looking forward to it. I am optimistic in the upgrade. I love being an FO but once the upgrade opportunity comes I will be in the next class, even if I have to sit reserve for a year or who knows how long. However, if I don't upgrade in 2.5 years its still ok... I heard about the people buying cars, houses and I agree with you. I also heard they had a big ego to go with all of it but that is definitely not me....... thankyouMike Oxlong said:Way too many of you CHQ F/O's are banking on upgrading within the 18-24 month time frame. A few poeple just over a year on property are upset that they have not upgraded yet. People buying cars, houses, and big ticket items banking on that 18 month upgrade. Big mistake!
When crewplanning called I was completely shocked...I was enjoying life as a senior F/O.
Like I said don't count on the 18 month upgrade...and do a good job as an F/O.
Ironically enough, I misspelled the company's name on all of my initial paperwork I sent in to them. When the call came back for an interview, I was mystified that I couldn't find any information about "Chautaugua Airlines" on the internet, until I realized my mistake.OldManPilot said:Before you apply, might I suggest you learn how to spell Chautauqua.
