How abundant are extra trips? And how likely am I to credit way above guarantee? (100+ hours) Also how does this work with line bidding (before yall switch to PBS)?
I have been hitting 90-100 hrs pay each reserve month on short call with what they assign me.

There are quite a few premium trips in open time on the FO side. It ebbs and flows based on the amount of snow in Seattle and staffing levels. You honestly may not be legal to pick up anything more.

Long call pilots can request to pickup premium time during their reserve days and the premium will be paid on top of their guarantee.

Not sure I understand your last question. You will have a pre-built reserve line that is awarded from bidding, with days on and off within that line.

Default Are Pt 135 turbo prop pilots getting hired?

Is it possible to get hired with only pt 135 turbo prop experience? Iím wondering if itís worth going to get my own CTP and ATP written done now that the minimums are 500 turbine and ATP written only. I have 1000 turbine and 430 turbine pic. Has anyone heard of people getting hired without 121 time recently?

Plenty of individuals getting hired without 121 time, myself included. Your turbine numbers are definitely competitive. I dont know if anyone has gotten hired without an ATP though. Maybe others can chime in on that.

Since when? Something doesnít add up here, why would they pay premium when youíre assignable and on call anyways? On days off, that would makes sense. Never did LCR, but maybe I should if thatís the case haha.
