I heard that comair started training their own cadets, is this true?
Also with the new(old) 737's coming in they're going on a hiring spree. If so what are their requirements and selections like?
I think the req is 1200TT & 200 ME, thats about it.
Wouldnt mind finding out about the cadet thing though.
Req:Total time 1000 hrs & 200 multi.
Cadet scheme is starting sometime, believe at 43 in Port Alfred.

Let's not forget that pesky, minor criteria of US citizenship or Permanent Residency Status. Find yourselves a gringa.
Comair is close to ending the 3 month strike but all flights are off for 2 more months as they sold off a lot of their planes and let go a significant percentage of staff. It'll take time to get back into the swing of things.

IOS97 - This is the South African Comair,operating as British Airways, not the Delta subsidiary USA. :rolleyes:

Just wondering what the big outcome of the press release was recently concerning possible new/old fluffs on the line? Any new routes on the horizon? No doubt, Comair remains as stable as when I was driving the old Fokkers and initial Fluffs! :)
Oh, did I mention we are needing just under 300 drivers in 2002.........

My mistake Nutstrangler. Innocent enough as Delta Comair has exactly the same minimums of 1200 and 200ME. A lot of talk on pprune about how to get into the States as a pilot and was just trying to help.
It's interesting to read about what's happening in the African Aviation scene. Perhaps I'll just do that while scanning the African scene.
