I realize that this question has been asked in different forms (regional to majors flow) but I have a somewhat unique situation and would appreciate some insight.
Short bio: 43 years old, retired military (USN) rotary wing pilot (4500 total time with 3700 PIC and 100 fixed wing - all time turbine).
I am considering taking advantage of one the new “rotor to airline” transition programs being offer by the regionals (I’m specifically looking at TSA’s program). Please help manage my expectations as I weigh the pros and cons of embarking on this new aviation adventure - what is a reasonable amount of time to plan for being at a regional given my resume? These rotor transition programs are all less than a year old so there’s no data points out there. I realize that this question may be “unanswerable” but I figured I had to at least ask the question. I understand any replies are opinions only.
Thanks in advance for the help!
