From Management:
Mountain Air Cargo, Inc. is now offering part time flight crew opportunities in both the C208 and ATR fleets. Part time flight crews can expect the following:
• Maximum obligation of 2 weeks/month
• Paid 100% of regular pay scale; prorated for weeks flown
• ½ time payout on paid holidays
• Any extra week flown above the minimum is paid at current rate
• CASS/KCM
• No company benefits; health, dental, 401K, disability etc.
• No PTO or vacation for “Part Timers”

It looks like they're getting pretty desperate. I like the flexablity though.

Hmmmm. If they still have that opportunity in a couple of years and the full time pilots don’t object, I might be interested in that upon retirement. I miss flying turboprops and getting to fly everyday.

Why would the FT pilot object?

Any Caravan runs that are day time only? I would love to do this part time as a retirement gig someplace warm, same run everyday sounds like bisquites and gravy.

Yes but we also have instituted a home basing system where you can live anywhere in the eastern or central time zone so I think you could combine that with the part time work.

Hi All!

I emailed in a resume about a week ago to HR after calling in to inquire about part time positions. Any information on how long it takes HR to get back to applicants, or how much time I should wait to follow up on my resume?

Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you!

I just looked at the MAC careers page and there is an ATR position open Dallas. I think I meet the PIC requirements and am interested in learning about the QOL and typical schedule. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I'd like to fly the ATR part-time after I retire. I'd have a fighting chance of making it to a hospital if I keeled over in the airplane.

This looks interesting. Any updates on this? I'm currently flying a 208 for another FEDEX operator but am interested flying part time.

I see the maximum is two weeks a month, anyone know if there is a minimum? Do the part timers get flexibility in their schedule? Also, is there anything that says a part-timer can't fly part 135 or other commercial outside of MAC?

I am trying to stay close to home. I am fine with staying a CFI for a while to be close to home but under the right conditions PT cargo would be appealing. I live within driving distance to a MAC base. Two weeks a month would be fine if I drive to the base every day but if its the type of thing where they send you somewhere to stay in a hotel for the week, I probably could only do one week a month.
