With the ACMI flying we are getting virtual bases outside MIA, we opened SMF for USPS and CVG for DHL, and while we are all based in MIA they will fly you from your requested airport to those cities (normally you will be there for a couple weeks in a hotel while doing the flying)
The bidding for those virtual bases are awarded in seniority, and are going fairly senior (SMF anyway, CVG first award will be processed on May 13th)
Management is pursuing more ACMI flying possibly with more virtual bases
Hope this answers your question

Thanks Rocketman - yes, very helpful. So a very junior pilot would still probably be MIA based, doing island turns?
