Hi,

Just hired as a SIC/FO for a 135 company what is the value of time turbine time under 20000 lbs? I have mins for the other regionals, so not sure what to do. I will probably make Captain in less than a year so then it will be turbine PIC. This a/c is similiar to a 1900 in size, but I understand that Jetblue AA and all the other majors require the a/c to be a certain weight. Also, will the regionals become majors should I just start at the regionals to prevent making a lateral movement and losing a senority #?

Thanks

Personally, I never figured out what magic happened at 20,000 lbs or above...I don't see any difference in difficulty between a 19,300 lb Falcon 10 and a 23,600 lb Hawker 400. Actually, the 16,300 lb Beechjet is more difficult to fly than the Hawkers.

On the other hand, if the people hiring say they want time over 20,000 lbs, I guess that's what you need. Maybe they don't understand how to read flight manuals and performance charts. Who knows?

fly safe!

Get your 1000 TJPIC then look for a job in a bigger airplane, there are lots of DA-20 (28.6K) jobs out there who would be interested in someone with a 1000 TJPIC

Guess it sucks to be you if you're applying to jet blue then. At least the pay is good and you don't have to vacuum after you fly.

Oh!

Yip's right. Get that coveted 1000 turbine PIC then move up. The PIC time will get you a better choice of "big" jet jobs.TC

Am I reading this right, they upped the MGTOW 7,300 lbs with the improvements from the Beechjet to the Hawker 400??

The Beechjet 400A MGTOW was 16,100...For a cool $10,000 you can get the AFM update to give you the same MGTOW of the "new" Hawker 400XP of 16,300. So it is only an increase of 200 pounds.

The Hawker 400 is an HS-125, somewhere in the line between the Hawker 1A and the Hawker 800XP...the Hawker 400XP is the "new Beechjet". Still a BE-400?

Confusing, huh? ;)
