You can become an 737 express captain in about 2 years, but to become a junior mainline captain on the md-88 will take about 8 or so. We've got a lot of retirements coming up so who knows where those numbers will go.

This friend of mine from Boston was hired by Delta in '79 and the airline did not hire any pilots for several years. He was an Engineer on a B727for about 8years and then another 8years as first officer, until he got to be captain on the T-tail aircraft. So, back when pilots were hired in the late seventies it took them some time to reach the goal of captaincy.

Regards, B727
