There were only 3 145 pilots awarded 170 Captain. Everyone else was an ASA ID#. No 145 upgrades.
Thanks for letting us all know your a moron. If you think we lost the DL contract because of the ASA pilots, I don't think you have been paying attention to how SKYW ran the wholly owned airlines with unions. Do we have a few idiots....sure. XJT doesn't?Let’s hope all the Legacy ASA folks don’t piss off our United partners like they did Delta. Would hate to not be able to fly the 175 because they screwed it up for us.
man, woman, birth, death, infinity. A cycle. Google doesn't recognize.Translated from the Wingdings font...
Men and women, we love ASA, Jesus to infinity. Amen.
Having completed BizJet Types at both FSI and CAE. This foot print is about right for an airplane the size of the 175. FSI and CAE despite the cost are no frills, wam, bam, thank ya ma'am courses. With virtually no weekends off except for maybe Sunday during training. From what I gathered from our Training Department the first five cycles (per the purchase agreement with Embraer) will do everything through FSI. Then the next batch of classes will get Ground School in IAH and Probably the oral. Then their sims in STL. Until our program is approved and we get more qualified 175 Sim IP's. I would not be surprised that we have mixed batch of FSI/XJT IP's and XJT Check Airman doing the Type Rides.The reason why senior L-XJT CA didn't bid 175 CA is because they felt it was a blind bid. They were uncertain of their seniority percentage. So they weren't willing to risk QOL. Plus most do not want to be in STL for 24 days. Btw I found out, its 10 days of ground school, 7 sims, and a PC. Which they said would take about 24 days. Once FAA approves it as transition training, it will be less. This was told to me by FlightSafety in STL.
