Hey Daniel, first of all, I appreciate the "sir" on my post but it is not necessary. We are on a first name/initials... of my handle... basis. smile.gif

You are wise beyond your age and that will pay off soon enough. I will just say that every rejection gives us an experience that will come in handy down the road. Use what you know to get where you want to be and you will get there.

I think you chose the worst time of the year to apply, that's probably the only reason you didn't get it. If this was the height of the busy season they'd probably send you a plane ticket immediately.

I would call every two or three weeks. Keep callin. Sooner or later they'll bring you in. Sometimes getting what you want in this industry feels like pounding a square peg through a round hole but I think in this case the peg is round - it's just a bit too big around. Tight fit. Keep hitting it - it will go.



Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I totally agree with Brett, probably just the time of the year. If you really want it just stay in contact with them and you will get in.
