I have a friend who is low time and I'm trying to help him find a job. I saw IFL Group's Falcon 20 SIC requirements are 300TT/MEL. What in the world is that about?!?! Pay isn't that good and the company does not offer a a hour guarantee. Any info on this company would be great.

I was on the falcon there for a little over 4 years. PM me.

It's great pay for someone with 300 hours. What are the other options? Pipeline, banner, or instruction? Neither one will get you ready for a successful career better than right seat in a 135 jet freighter. I was at IFL for almost four years on the Boeing. Feel free to PM any generic IFL questions.

For a guy with 300 hours, he finds himself vulnerable to advances from Mr Scab.

In regard to the CaptHole Scab, anyone working under him, should understand how important it is to get out from under this guys authority as soon as possible.

One sign of an abusive boss, is he likes to sorround himself with A-kissers. A certified tormentor of subordinate employees.

I was there during the DC3, piston Convair era, and when the 580ís first appeared, our alumni had no problems joining the ranks of Delta, AA, FedEx , SWA et al, the work itself was a crucible that refined you,plus IFL was always a class act. I do confess the scab thing bothers me, Iím really out of touch with what is going on there these days. Proud of the company though, our old competition has gone by the wayside, while IFL continues to thrive.

Yes, IFL is a good company. The list for people to run the 727 program (must be?) limited. Opportunity for improving the 727 leadership is unmistakable.

We no longer have a Phoenix based crew. We are hiring in all aircraft. The CRJs on the scheduled runs are based in KTVF, and the on demand ones will be based in KPTK. Most of the other aircraft are based in KPTK. The current schedule for the CRJ is two weeks on and two weeks off. They will airline you to the plane.

As you can tell by his screen name he's full of crap. Probably one of the guys that failed out because he couldn't make the mark. Obviously he's so distraught by this, he now created a screen name to hide his identity and talk crap online behind the safety of his keyboard.

IFL is a great place to work. I spent 8 years on the Boeing. The forums all full of guys that didnít want to put in the effort and were not successful at IFL so be careful what you read online. PM me if you have any questions.

Are you also looking for Convair or 727 crews?

Do you have home basing?

Hi Braniff,
the schedules are two weeks on two off. Travel is on your two weeks on. We do have home basing. We fly you from where ever you live (in the states of course), to KPTK at the beginning of the two weeks, and back at the end. I believe we are hiring into the Convair, but I will ask.

You only work half the year!!

So someone who works fulltime, 40 hours a week for 50 weeks a year works less than a quarter of the year? (2000hrs/8760hrs)

WTF

You're right, I should probably re-word that to say get 182 full days off a year. A person working 40 hours a week, 50 weeks a year would get 114. We do have a couple people that live in MN that are only working 10 days a month.
Thanks for pointing that out.

I am "looking" at a few 91 and 135 ops: Maybe I missed it but, can you tell me what a/c are BASED in ELP? ELP is more commutable for me so that is why I am asking.

Just a friendly reminder, IFL 727 has an unusually high failure rate, even 100% at times. Your career can very well tank, over a few paychecks from this place. Some people think itís worth a shot, other know better.

Fortunately on the CRJ side of things we have a high pass rate. We donít just hand them out, but Iíve taught/checked since the beginning of the program and have not had to fail anyone yet. Weíve given people extra sim sessions if they are not ready, rescheduled checkrides. I can tell you every check airmen in this program has no motivation to mess up a persons career by handing out an undeserved failure.

You're not seeing it because it's not installed. You win one free internet for the detective work.

What are the chances of a 300ish hour CMEL pilot of getting sic in the falcon as a new hire? Or would they be predicated to spending a year or two sitting sideways in the 727 as a FE ?
