  3. https://thumbs.gfycat.com/ShadyImaginativeGrison-mobile.mp4 Different angle for the Falcon recovery landing. The video of that landing cut out while I was watching on nasa.gov. Sweet shot. Talk about the proverbial “heaving postage stamp”. Holy crap.
  4. Agree with all above. What an awesome thing to watch.
  5. Thread successfully derailed fellas. Maybe we can move this mask discussion to another thread? FedEx is draining the pool of successfully hired interviewees. Although exact future timing is unknown, it appears the original pool of roughly 200 will be empty by EOY. FedEx was hiring a little over 400/yr prior to stopping in Nov 2019. New interview timing is currently unknown. My educated guess is sometime in the fall. Also unknown is the approx number a year target for the company post COVID surge. Best of luck to all out there in this newest version of the job hunt.
  6. Thread bump, asking for a buddy...kindly request contact info for a prior rated Herk dude to put a pilot application on file with the MT ANG. Also, any news on when next prior rated board may be? Thanks.
  7. https://careers.fedex.com/pilot-minimum-qualifications Not general at all. 500 TPIC required. All other requirements a regulatory—ATP, passport, etc. Competitive? I’d get a sponsor to provide a Primary Endorsement (PE). When hiring starts back up sometime in 2020 (we think), the first ones to get a call will most likely have a PE. The hiring landscape has certainly changed almost overnight. I’d expect the cargo outfits to be more selective now. All my opinion; no science there.
  8. http:// https://www.cnbc.com/2020/02/29/coronavirus-prompts-united-airlines-to-offer-pilots-a-month-for-flight-cuts.html Is there even a grain of truth in this article?
  9. Corona virus route cancellations & 737 Max I’d guess? Hope it’s only a short respite. FedEx hasn’t had an Indoc class since Oct; rumormill says we’ll start normal indoc again sometime between Mar-Jun ‘20. There are 8 going to HKG in Mar ‘20...that part is not rumor. But real hiring beyond that? No pilot knows the answer.

  11. All the Sikhs I’ve worked with on international exercises are badass. They are a warrior class. I would be honored to have more of them working directly on the US side. We need a little more warrior, little less snowflake marshmallow as a crew force. Removing a religious barrier to get these guys working with us is a win. And if others get beards down the road, also neat. Not expected tho.
