Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 Type Rating Requirement Clarification:

Southwest Airlines no longer requires a B737 type rating prior to interview or beginning of new hire pilot initial training.  Our Training Center Instructors will prepare our new hire pilots for the B737 type checkride and certification checkride will be accomplished with our in house FAA Designated Examiners.

Pilots who already have a B737 type rating will receive a Proficiency Checkride prior to flying the line but will be waivered the type checkride and oral.
