Hi. For anyone interested in MAC, I just completed training on the Caravan and have been released to fly the line. If anyone has questions regarding the hiring process, training, ect., feel free to send me a PM. I'll look forward to chatting with you. Jeff

Just wondering what the schedule is like. Can they move you to another domicile if they need to or are you likely to stay put once you are assigned a base?

Thanks

Hi. You are either a "based" pilot or a "floater". I'm a floater so I'll be doing some traveling. PM me if you need more info. Jeff

Just curious as to what your time frame was from apply to interview (and type of interview) to indoc and IOE to the line compared to a regional or something along those lines. Just looking at some options.

How about a PIREP of the training, etc? I'd like to hear it.

Hey I’m interested in MAC, just curious about the percentage of people passing training.

In a Cessna 208? A Turbine Suburban?

I suppose that would depend. Do you have ten hours of Cessna 152 or 172 time? If so, I think it’s only about three hours of transition training and passing is a slam-dunk. Otherwise you’ll need to do the full course.

:D:D

So nine months later, how is it flying the line? Some part of me thinks flying a Caravan in PR would be fun. I meet the hour requirements would just need the FR and IPC. If you want to discuss here cool or if you want to PM cool too.

Four hours for the transition, now, since they added the "birdcage challenge."

I'm looking at the Erie, PA domicile. About how many flight hours can be earned per month? What is a typical daily schedule?

"20" (with enough headwind every night). It's not a place to build time, unless you're not in much of a hurry. (The Erie run is around 35 minutes.) However, I understand all runs are covered right now?

A typical run departs around 1900 on Monday and fly to an outstation where you spend the night at a hotel. You return to your base around 0700 the next morning. Show time at the airplane is usually one hour before scheduled departure. Some end on Friday morning and some on Saturday morning.
