Two months plus of unpaid training. $17K+- year if you make it thru. Resume on it's way!
Way to be positive. Some folks out there might just be happy that they have an opportunity. If I could have afforded it, I would have been there. It's good equipment, challenging flying, and a way to cut your teeth in this industry. There are worse ways to earn a living and everybody who works there understands that.

I'm probably commenting ironically...
i would do this in heartbeat (not to many loans, single)

dont' quite have the time 600/70 but will have over 1000 by spring time with the job I have now.

i think it would be one hell of an experience!

I interviewed with them on friday and got the call monday that I've been accepted for a class date. I'm pretty happy to have a job in the industry considering what is happening to the economy.

im betting that based on the comments about inside considerations and the minimums...they're pretty stricked with those?

If you know someone there and can have your resume walked in I think that they'll wave those minimums. I didnt quite have 50 hours of multi and it wasnt an issue.

Have a friend working there. They understood the challenges of "initial entry" and they accepted those challenges.

It's a start; it's a good start.

Why do you have to be 21? At 18 I'm more mature than some friends in their late 20s.
Because they will expect you to upgrade within 2 years. There were guys that started there and went through upgrade in less than a year when I was tossing bags and working on my CFI. It's not a matter of maturity as much as it is a requirement for the regulation to get your ATP certificate.

Makes sense ;)
