- Total Time
If you had to choose between these companies, which would choose and why? Let say you have a job offer at both, with class dates starting around the time.
The last J41 upgrade announced at Trans States had a hire date of September '03. Hard to say what will happen with the current STL CA list. Most have far less than 1000 PIC due to crappy J41 schedules. Many were ERJ FOs that jumped to the prop for early PIC time (TSA require 3000 hours TT for J41 captian upgrades, 4000 TT for ERJ). Those guys want nothing more than to get off the J41 when seat lock is up.210FR8DOG said:I agree with all the opinions stated so far, I think ASA is prob. a better place. But consider for a moment that TSA has about 700 pilots and upgrade is decent at the moment around 1.5 yrs j-41 to 3 yrs jet. ASA has probably double that number of pilots and I would think upgrade would be much slower.(???) Upgrade quicker at a crappy company or FO at a decent company? tuf choice.

Actually, there are 2 guys in the July J41 upgrade class hired in Jan 04.

but feels that they're going to loose the Us Airways contact.
