I'm told roughly 1 year. Probably depends on base as well?

With that experience why are you asking about upgrade time? They have a posting for DEC which you'd qualify for https://porter.rivs.com/careers/porterc ... er/careers

Thanks for the reply. I did apply for that, no response. I figure probably because I am shy of the 5000 total time and the command on the Q/or turbo prop above 44,000lbs.
I don’t mind starting on in the right seat, gaining operational knowledge and experience before being skipper never hurts. Just trying to get a clearer outlook what a career at porter would look like.

It's generally a seniority based upgrade, but once hired you can apply anytime an upgrade posting is released. Word is Porter is fully rostered.

The most junior pilot in the current upgrade class was hired 14 months ago.
