I understand VA held interviews last week. Anyone have info on how many more interview sessions will be held and how many pilots will be hired?

3 more sessions this year. No numbers on hiring until DOT report and fleet plans are determined.

A320 type not required, and you will go through a full initial A320 class even if you have one. About 60 interviews scheduled out of about 4K qualified applicants, so I would assume an internal recommendation would help just a little. Good luck!

enough
I've read somewhere that they're getting 5-6 more airplanes but as many as 10. So, deducing from that, anywhere from 60 to 120 pilots?? Just guessing.

I have four. No luck here. No Bus experience. Haven't flown since April, though. Could be a factor.

Is there a flow though to Virgin Galactic?

I hope so.

Most likely after the first of the year. Good luck to those that interviewed!

Do you have a someone on the inside to give you a rec.?
Even if you do the competition is fierce. I have heard of some with four recs. and no call while others have one rec. and get the call.
