Does anyone know when 00461 at Westover is going to Wright-Patt? I've heard sometime this month, but not sure of the date. Think they'll take Space As?

RE: Upgrading To Captain

They don't do all of that in the states. The interviews, performance reviews, etc all take place in the new hire selection process and probation period. The idea is that they're hiring future captains from the start; if they don't believe you'd hack it in the left seat, they don't hire you in the fi...

CASS is a security-sensitive subject. Ask your employer for the information you require. Nobody with knowledge on how to access cockpit jumpseats should post such knowledge on a public forum. If your employer can't provide the answers, then you're probably not eligible.
