I'm not an expert. But I imagine sunwing HR wouldn't appreciate you sharing their interview gouge. Stating when your interview is on a public forum might not be the best idea either.

So what's the deal?

Why do they need a cadet program? There are tons of more qualified pilots who would love to fly a 737.

Oh wait.... This wouldn't be a way to pay pilots lower wages would it?

No more TFW=hire 200 hr CPLs and have them pay for bonds, European style!

Brilliant! :prayer:

Nope, same wages and conditions as anyone hired off the street. Good opportunity for some lucky cadet.
I suspect they're looking forward a few years once duty regs get changed etc and forecasting greater difficulty in hiring. There was a time that AC used to hire 250 hour cadets, don't recall that being an issue. As long as you adjust your training practices accordingly cadets will be perfectly capable pilots.

And they will be upgraded captain at 1500 hours!

There's thousands of pilots with over 3000 hours in this country who can't even land a F/O position, where's the logic?

They most certainly wont be upgraded at 1500 hours. No idea why they chose now to introduce a cadet program but its around 2% of the total number of pilots hired given forecast numbers so hardly a significant number.

Unless I'm wrong, these were used as Second Officers on the 727.

Logic! The airlines are going to do what they think is best for them.

What is your source for claiming there are thousands of pilots with over 3000 hours who can not get an FO position?

If you've got over 3000 hours and you can't land an open gig with an active company (and you at least come close or exceed the mins), the time isn't the problem....
