So you can be a direct entry captain with 250 multi pic, 1500 hrs and atpl?

Have they done anything recently about wages and pilot retention?

Are guys still working 19 days a month and being asked to volunteer for more?

Daily mins?

What is the projected wait for mainline wj for someone who gets hired today?

Any reason to go to a regional when wj and ac will be hiring off the street for the foreseeable future?

Yeah I think there must be something wrong with that listing. Encore has their matrix, it even says lower down how RJ/Classic time can be counted for %50 towards the Q400 time on type matrix. I think someone just made a mistake in the post and copied the FO requirements.

2000 hrs minimum with 1500 hours on type. Tell me that someone with 1500 on type isn't qualified to command.

Don't particularly want a crappy sched for 5 years when WJ and AC are hiring off the street. Got a lot more hours than 1500. Who knows if a guy even flows to wj in five years. Might be that ULCC they keep talking about.

It's weird to me that Encore considers ATR or RJ time equal to Daah 8 time and gives no special consideration for previous Dash 8 experience. The Q400 shares a type rating with the 100/300, doesn't it?

I believe you misread it. They say you need X amount of Q400 time, or can count similar types at 50%. Those similar types include the Dash 8 100/200/300, CRJ of all types, and it looks like they'll go for ATR experience too. Since the RJ is cousins with the Challenger I suppose they'd accept that and if they're really desperate they'd probably consider Dash 7 time too.

You guys need to loosen up and feel the intent of these things.

sad times when pilots who are entrusted to fly a multi million dollar aircraft can't understand a simple job ad :roll:

I guess the idea being that if you don't happen to have a lot of time on the world's most benign and forgiving aeroplane, then some time on the world's second-or-third most benign and forgiving aeroplane might do as a poor second. But what do I know.

Which is more shocking? A pilot with poor reading comprehension, or a person presumably with a university degree in Human Resources with such poor writing skills that said pilots can't decipher what they are actually looking for?

They're just posting the legal minimums not the desired qualifications. They always do that.

Hey Viper,

I believe the original ad was in error.

Cheers
