When do you recommend getting letters of recommendation? I believe they need to be submitted with application (im using AirlineApps) when I’m ready to publish about 12 months prior to my military retirement, so looking at August or so of 2017 for retirement in 2018 a year later.
How many letters?
Do they only want internal or do they value those a lot more, I assume?
For external letters, do they want only other pilots that you have flown with or previous instructors? What about direct supervisors, whether they were pilots or not?
How fresh should the letters be? As close to the application as possible? I saw somewhere else that you should update your app about every 30 days, so would you recommend getting updated letters every so often?
Any other advice for letters or recommendation?
