Let me add, that only Delta and FedEx require a bachelors degree. For the rest of the big six itís only preferred. But in reality you wonít get a call if you donít have a degree.

UA's hired civilians pilots with less than 2500 TT. DL has hired civilian pilots with barely more than 2,000 hrs TT.

So there's no '5,0000 TT' requirement. But frequently the person hired is someone 'connected' if they have less than 3000 hrs TT.

The typical new hire is more like 5,000+ hrs TT and 1,000 hrs (1,300+?) PIC (TPIC?).

I got hired at a legacy with less than 5000TT. There were also several flow throughs in my class without bachelor degrees. Having said that; no bachelor degree makes it next to impossible to get hired unless you have a flow program.
