A contract that is totally stacked against the pilots.
An unreasonable, to the letter of the contract, chief pilot who would fly anything in any condition into any weather, therefore you should too, and you will be pressured too.
Penny wise, dollar foolish....but, at the pilotís expense, of course.

There really is so much more. But I donít feel like writing a book tonight.

All Iím trying to say is that they should be a last resort, not a first choice.

Check out Landcare.
I think you forgot the most important one, Air America doesn't employ pilots, they contract them. You are an independent contractor; they will send you a 1099 at the end of the year and you will be responsible to pay all the extra self-employment taxes as well as losing on the other legal protections provided to employees.
