question about most airline IOEs for new hires:
After training is complete, the new FO goes through the IOE in the airplane as i understand it for a certain amount of time. since (as i think it works) most new hires bid reserve schedules, how can this guarantee they will get a line check captain on the trip? or does a new hire line bid just for IOE to ensure they get a check captain and te after that move to reserve?
PS- while talking about reserve, i hear the pilot with the LEAST seniority is called first... true? if so interesting concept.
