Now, how others view what you have written down, say when applying for a job, that's another story.

As to "real" time vs "Parker Pen" time in your logbook, the truth usually comes out in training. . . .

"Usually" seems to be the operative word.

One local AMF guy openly would say to others, "fly what you can. log what you need."

Those who know him say he is a total scammer. I stay clear of his interests.

I understand that AMF has jumpseat privileges with other airlines. Is that all airlines or only some. Is there a list that someone can share of the airlines AMF pilots can jumpseat on?

Thanks.

Ameriflight is a CASS participant however, Ameriflight only has one reciprocal jump seat agreement. It is with Southwest Airlines.

A reciprocal jump seat agreement is what ensures that pilots have the ability to ride up front. Having an agreement is NOT, by any means, a GUARANTEE that you will be allowed on board, the agreement means that your two airlines agree to take each other's pilots if able.... so USUALLY, if you can be accommodated, you will be. Ameriflight currently only has on agreement in place w/ Southwest so the only airline that AMF pilots can jump seat on knowing that if they can be accommodated, they will be, is Southwest.

Some other airlines allow CASS participating airlines to non-rev on their flights in the passenger cabin only without a reciprocal jump seat agreement but the jump seat is at the captain's discretion and it can be pretty hit or miss. All depends upon the captain.

Thanks for taking the time to fully explain this. I would think many people like me without the experience of working for an airline will find this very helpful.

Because this is a new concept to some on this forum, even though there is an agreement does not mean that there are rights to the jumpseat(s). It is always a privilege that is the Captains to give. And protocol is essential when exercising this privilege otherwise agreements can be put in question. It has happened to all airlines at some point.

Over the course of time SWA has always been the most generous to other airlines and has been the leader of how liberal the agreements have become in the airline industry.

Big time "agree" on the protocol statement. We have actually lost our privilege at one time in the past because guys were being, for lack of a better word, a * holes to the gate folks as well as jumping in their grubbiest uniforms. When riding on another carrier, paying passengers generally don't know the differance between a pilot for the airline and an AMF pilot. So you are being as much a representative of Southwest (or whoever you are jumping on) as you are of AMF. Perhaps more so. So putting the best foot forward goes a long way in keeping the airline happy and keeping the agreement in place. Which helps keep AMF happy.

There was a Navajo Chieftain operational question on Piperforums.com and I was hoping that some AMF guys could answer. How do you currently operate your engines? MP, RPM, FF? LOP or ROP? Did AMF install engine monitors?

Thanks in advance.
