In about a 18 months I"ll be looking for someplace with about a 1 year upgrade. Who out there is sitting at about a one year for an upgrade time, so that I can hit 23 and be in the left seat?
THAT...was fracking hilarious!!
When people post things like this I've phrased it before that there is no such thing as current upgrade time.In about a 18 months I"ll be looking for someplace with about a 1 year upgrade. Who out there is sitting at about a one year for an upgrade time, so that I can hit 23 and be in the left seat?
IMO the boat on growth has already sailed at both of those places, and both (I think Measba is in on it too) are places that the NWA, and maybe Delta post-merger ?????? furloughs can go, bumping the current guys down.In the current environment your best shots would be Compass or Mesaba.
I know, any freight companies would be appreciated too. I am walking before I'm running, I driving 207s out of anchorage everyday, and going to college in no small part to the advice I got on this board. In 18 mos or so I'll be done with school, and will be ready for bigger and better things, I am looking for options and places to scout that are outside alaska, and which give me that golden 1000TPIC so I can move up in the world. (be advised I did read the post about 1000TPIC)Or try not to think too much about what aircraft you're flying. You can become PIC of single or multi turbine freight airplanes much faster, although it may be more difficult and dangerous flying.
That is the only part where you are going wrong in that whole post.just trying to get an idea of what places had a historical upgrade time of about one year.
Where I work now doesn't have multi turbine equipment, hell we don't even have multi piston (though we might get a 402 pretty soon, and if that happens I'll probably be here to stay for a while) we're single piston only. PIC is about it right now, and after a year and a half here, I'll be sitting at about 3000-3500TT with a bachelors, and 600TSIC, with 650 or so multi, and enough PIC to skin a catWhy don't you just stay where you are and move into the multi or turbine equipment? The money is good up in Alaska and you are building PIC time. You will not get that in the lower 48.
