the SO position in SQ is a training position. SOs are folk that are in line training to become FOs. The SO training period is about 6 months NOW depending on fleet, instructor supply and training sectors available.

Has anyone who has been contacted for an interview had only turboprop time? I have 6600 hours total with about 2500 of that as Q400 PIC, 4000 Q400 total. Been PFO'd twice, but I'm still curious to know if anyone has gone without a jet type-rating.

Thanks
