I got the call from Express Jet too. Just curious to know what kind of training contract they have, if any. If so, is there a probation period????

There is no training contract at XJT. Probation lasts one year.

Do you guys have any idea if XJet would accept sim time towards their minimums? I have filled out their online application a few times, and it always specifies no sim time.


Is there any other way in? I'm a sim instructor, so I've got sim time, but not a lot of flight time. I have 225+ hours of A319/320 sim and ftd instruction given/received.

On the same token, is there any airline that will accept sim time?

i dont think they will. I had a buddy who did the right seat deal at one of the sim companies and he had a whole bunch in a falcon and they wouldnt count it. Its a shame though because the sims probably make you better anyway because its generally all emergencies or abnormals.

I heard they were looking for guys with A319 and A320 sim time. Good luck!

You should apply with SEGA airlines out of Tokyo. They operate an entire fleet of simulated airliners. They have a pretty young pilot group, too. I bet the layovers are fun - complete with popsicles and all the JOLT you can drink. Most of their trips are on the weekend or after your homework is done.

You would be based in an arcade at first, but could eventually move up to being based at home.

Sincerely,

B. Franklin

SEGA airlines has a domicile in Santa Maria. MJ has a jumpseat on every flight, but it's your seat that he's sitting in-you have to sit on his lap. I've heard that he sing's you a song " have you been to never pants ranch---oooooo hhhoooo", while on final.

If they give you any slack about sim time, just explain to them that you are a better pilot than the interviewer. Tell them about the time you simulated icing conditions, or the time that you got caught in a virtual thunderstorm. Then they'll know who they're dealing with!
