Hired with less than 1000 TT ?

#1 Post by 7507 » Sat Aug 18, 2018 7:07 am

I’ve read that Porter has hired pilots with less than 1000 TT with some sort of a promissory that WHEN they reach the 1000 hours they join the line, is this true?
Thanks in advance

I think you are referring to the early connections program. Which is where pilots with less than 1000tt make a profile with all their pertinent info and do some video interviews. You are then contacted quarterly it says to check in on your career progression. Once you meet 1000tt you will then either get a link or automatically (I forget) be switched to FO application. In theory it lets them check out prospective applicants over a longer period of time to fast track the applications.

Yes they are hiring below 1000TT.. I know some guys with just under that whom did the sim and interview around 600 and offer later on. Mind you they were through the college programs.

So I assume they will only hire guys under 1000 if they went through the college program and not offer this to guys off the street, ok as long as we know. So for us other guys we have to wait till 1000 to drop off a resume.

thanks

nonono, you can apply at 500 hours, but im assuming for OTS peeps youll need 1000 hrs. But you can apply before that. They do interviews and conditional offers prior to 1000.

Pilots have been hired sub 1000 hours. Not the norm, but often enough that we talk about it.
