well, i thing i hate is that every airline requires experience, which most jobs require, anyways. How the hell are you gonna become a pilot if you didnt fly a plane that an airline requires you to fly. You, obviously, only have the training.
|Quoting 777STL (reply 6):|
Airlines train you to fly their respective equipment. Very few pilots have any time in the types they're going to fly at the airline before they're hired.
|Quoting FlyMKG (reply 7):|
WN requires that new pilots be type rated in the 737. Last time I looked at their website they said if you didn't have a type rating they would still hire you but you had something like 3 months to get one. That's has to cost thousands to be type rated in the 737.
