May consider an EMB300 position in TX. This would be a Managed Acct (several owners) with 2 pilots to start out. What kind of on/off schedule is expected? Would welcome any further info --the usual---QOL, salary, benefits, management, turnover, aircraft mx, etc. Would u recommend EAS (via pm).

Hey Dirty Bird. I got a call for an interview tomorrow morning. Anything I should know before the call?

It's for a managed aircraft account.

Thanks

How are two pilots supped to give anyone any off days unless when the aircraft is in mx?

Good point. I forgot about that option. It's not something I would want to do neither as pax nor pilot but I know that's a whole different discussion.

Do Airshare do single pilot on the Phenom? If so, only on managed aircraft?

I charted a Phenom 100 once from a US charter outfit and was given the option of having a second pilot which I took.

The 100 is for sure a single pilot ship. No need at ALL for a 2 pilot crew. Itís slow and has no useful load. I flew one single pilot for 2 years. Of course I have 12 years of single pilot 135 in my background. Still. The G-1000 is easy to use. Itís slow as hell. Once used to the breaks itís easy to land. IMO though itís completely underpowered.

airshare does use two pilots.

Thanks for the perspective. I've never been a single pilot guy. VFR or light IFR in a simple aircraft, why not. But to me, if you combine bad weather with busy airspace/airports I want a second pilot next to me or up front when I'm in the back and that's even without anything else going wrong. Even in something slow and simple such as the Phenom 100. But that's just me. Obviously the FAA agrees with you that it's safe enough.

I flew an early Phenom 300 some years ago. I never really did like the G1000. It's capable but the user interface is very dated and not intuitive. I prefer any of the other FMSs I have used (various generations of Honeywell and Collins). Having said that, the G3000 is a huge improvement in terms of user interface and the G5000 is even more capable. Not perfect, but pretty darn good.

Does AirShare still have and utilize OpSpec/Mspec A015?

Are they an EOD operator?

If the answers are no and/or yes respectively, it’s a moot point. SIC required for all aircraft.

AirShare operates all of the 300 with a PIC and SIC. The only time I flew it single pilot was to reposition it and meet my SIC there or to take it up for MX.
