Anyone know the PIC ranges for this group. At DCA AirInc they said 1600 PIC was the magic number. Ryan told me in Aug to expect a call in two to three months.

I was able to talk a length with an interview team member the other day while he was jumpseating. Here's some stuff he let out:

1. SWA has enough pilots in the pool to fill the Nov. classes. Since there are 2 classes in Dec and 3 in Jan, a LOT of interviewing will take place.

2. With the upsurge in interviewing and the need to fill the Dec/Jan classes, SWA will have 3 interview teams working instead of the normal 2.

3. The pool of applicants already having a 737 type is getting smaller. To have more folks to choose from, many more without the type will get the interview call. However, the type will still be required for employment.

4. Yearly numbers for 2005 (Jan through Sep) give a selection rate of 38%.

Good luck to all!

Hey fellas, getting my type soon...with in the next 2 months. I have 4000ish pic in the ATR. Will it matter if I don't have any jet time?

for those of you who will ask...4000pic? why not apply sooner?? well, i have a long story and good reason...wasn't just sitin on my a$$ :) But I am concerened about the posibility that no jet time may hurt my chances.

Guys. Does anyone know what triggered the sudden hiring. The last news I heard was that we had stopped classes for the year. This is definitely great news. Does anyone know if we're opening up new cities. Congrats to all who get called. I have a buddy who got the call for a november interview.

I heard...and this is all from a guy I know who talk to his buddy who overheard a conversation between his drycleaner and his dentist...that it's due to some retirements and mostly to AC deliveries. I've read SWA is accepting 36 737-700s in '06.

Lindsey came to my September HPA class and said they staff each airplane with 11 pilots. 34 airplanes next year (374 pilots) plus the 150 or so that will reach age 60. Great opportunity in 06.

I was told in my Feb. HPA class it was around 1800 PIC. I just got the interview call and I only have 1550. I was caught totally off guard as I wasn't expecting to be called this year.

I spoke with Kim in the PD this week. When she pulled my info she said everything thing looks good and hopefully they'd be calling soon.

Officially holding my breath now.

Got the call 10/28! Was NOT expecting it. I'd resigned myself to waiting another year maybe? Just sat and stared at the phone for a couple of minutes when I got the voicemail. Beautiful thing. Interview date is 11/9.

Mil 2400 + Civ 600 = 3000
2041 T-34C
300 B737 (w/type)
500 ERJ-145

1767 PIC Turbine

From what I read above it sounds like Nov hires will possibly start class in Jan? Not trying to put the cart before the horse. Good luck everyone. I look forward to meeting the 9 Nov interviewees.
