I am becoming miffed as to why I continue to be rejected at the first round of cuts for all cadetship/academy applications.
Well have a think about it from the airline's perspective. If they hire someone who will be about 40 when they get checked to line, it doesn't leave much time to be a Captain. You would be lucky to see a command at any Jet airline under 15 years from starting which would leave someone like yourself in their early to mid 50's when they are just starting their command, assuming you pass it first go. At best it leaves 5-10 years assuming you are capable and willing to fly into your 60s. Given they can hire a 22 year old and get 20+ years out of them as a Captain, what would you do if you were the airline?
