What is the current ATR upgrade time like?

Are those domicile based bonuses likely to remain for multiple years?


baselegbob1
01-23-2017, 12:27 PM
Upgrade is available once qualified.

As for the bonuses... there is no end in sight. The bonuses have been in place for about 3 months now. The company does ask for a 1 year commitment.

Understand that this living bonus will be incorporated in your salary and is not a one time bonus check.

If you start as a Caravan captain will they pay the caravan pay if you switch over as an ATR first officer after a few months? I thought I heard that somewhere but not sure. Is there a training contract for them paying for the atp/ctp course? Thanks

Yes you will keep the caravan pay.

They do ask for a 1 year contract for the atp/ctp course.

MAC has a lot of changes coming also...

They are moving their HQ to a brand new building.

They are putting dual touchscreen Garmin GPS in the ATR fleet. This will enable LPV approaches.

They have set up an upflow from the C208 to the ATR. They will get 208 pilots the ATP and completely pay for the ATP/CTP course.

Hi,

What's typical ATR schedule? If it's base dependent, how about in Atlanta or NC? Is it more night flight or early morning?

Is there seat lock in 208? So can one transfer from 208 PIC to ATR FO in 6 months and keep 208 pay?

Thanks!

Not required to live in base. In order to be home based you would need to live near a large hub city. If you don't then you could just commute to your base.

Since I started this thread I've had some repeat questions about MAC.

Mountain Air Cargo is a 121/135 airline we operate 2 aircraft
The ATR (pt121)
The Caravan (pt135)

We have a 30+ year contract with FedEx as a feeder operator.

We fly FedEx cargo in FedEx planes on FedEx schedule.

Hope this answers some questions. If you need any more information PM me or look for our booth at WAI 2017.

MAC had many HR women running the show that were complete idiots, or slept with the CP for their “enjoyment”. Since the hostile take over of AirT (holding Co.), all long time employees have been fired, or invited to resign. MAC’s new president, Bob Norton, “cleaned the house”. I wouldn’t stay far from MAC only for the HR lady, I would stay far from the new administration.


Why would you want to fly a caravan or an ATR, when you can make more money, fly a jet, and have better benefits, even with the worst regional? MAC (or Empire) is not a way into FedEx. Remember that.

Who's not to like in the "new administration"? Like you said the old guard is gone. as far as pay goes, I make way more than a regional captain of similar longevity and have better QoL as well. The only guy that might have gotten under skin is the old assistant chief and he's gone. Ps. Is this RD? If so, how ya been?!

Pretty interested with the 208 then transition to ATR FO. Coming up close to part135 PIC IFR mins. But, I'm really looking into the SJU base for both. Past posts show that average hours a year range from 400-500 on mainland. Anybody know how many hours average a month on puerto rico side of MAC operation? Hopefully more? And, I'm trying to look for the route ATR MAC flies to if based out of SJU but, looks like the post i found is old.

Thank you.

We're always looking for SJU caravan pilots. Also the ATR doesn't fly out of San Juan. The ATR is based in BQN. As far as time goes, I believe you wouldn't have any issues gaining flight time here.

I'm well qualified and with the shortage of pilots and their massive ad campaign to attract pilots, you would think they would return a call. I've got 4500TT, 500 Turbine, CFI, CFII and ATP and they won't even return a call.

I wish them well finding pilots especially with this pilot shortage.

Every time I see an ad for an ATR pilot in KDLH it piques my interest as I would love to move to Duluth in a year or two. However the 50%+ pay cut I'd take even as a year one captain pretty much kills off the enthusiasm. Does Mountain air Cargo ever hire or move people up the pay scale if they are well beyond the minimum time requirements, or is it a contract and the pay is what it is like the airlines? Thanks

Yeah. They’d float you to BUF, SYR, or anywhere else they need you for the week. BUF-EWR-BUF and SYR-EWR-SYR seem to be short pilots more than most places, so those would be the runs you’d probably do the most.

Is there anything I can do to increase my chances of getting hired for the 208?

My resume is pretty good for just starting out. I have both Spartan College of Aeronautics and Embry-Riddle for education. I have 471.0 TT, 368.0 PIC, 147.8 CC, 141.8 NIGHT, 90.1 SOLO, 202.2 MEL, 268.8 SEL, and 66.2 INSTRUMENT as of right now. I will likely hit my minimums with the rest of my time being in the Multi. If that happens I will have around 900-1000 hrs of Multi time when I apply. All of my time building is with a Part 91 aerial survey company. I think my resume looks good, but will the Multi hurt my chances of getting on the 208?

I would like to fly out of Orlando because I currently live in Daytona. What are the chances of getting on a 208 in Orlando?

I would like to fly out of Orlando because I currently live in Daytona. What are the chances of getting on a 208 in Orlando?



Any information is greatly appreciated. Thank You in advance.



Nah, you’re fine. When you start getting close to 1200TT, put your stuff in. Also send me a message and I’ll make sure they call.

Just wondering, as this is an operation that works on FedEx schedule, are there any bases or schedules that require someone to work on Sundays or travel out on those days? Any that definitely won’t?

No UPS/Fed Ex Feeder's don't fly on sundays unless it's peak season I think.

Some runs require floaters to travel on Sunday if you’re based near a small market airport. Also, we have 1 Sunday out-and-back from MEM-CRW-MEM but pretty much only Memphis guys are going to get that one.

Gotcha, good to know. I’m close to KMHK/KMCI right now but will be moving to Dallas or Orlando in the future. Anything you can tell me about those bases and runs, and if where I’m currently at would work? Is what the gentleman mentioned above true that during peak season you might be required to run a Sunday route?

I’m at about 500hours almost MEI right now so I got some way to go, but I’ve been looking at MAC for awhile now as the next step once I get my hours.

Thank you!

No, during peak we don’t usually get a Sunday run. But, neither Dallas nor Orlando have ATR based pilots. So, you’d be a floater and more than likely have to travel some Sundays to get into position for a run. Hope this helps. If you look at our Jumpseat page it will shows where our actual aircraft are located for “based” pilots.

Thank you, this helps a lot with decision making. I appreciate it!

I'm looking at applying for the MSP base. Anyone based there care to explain the schedule? Do you deadhead out of base often? How often do Captains sit right seat? Thanks in advance!

Hey all, What is the typical schedule for the Caravan MCO base?

Got an email about an ATR FO, but when I go to the site I only see captain's minimums. What are the minimums for a FO and MAC?

And could anybody share about being an ATR FO in Atlanta? Here or PM is fine.

Hi all,
I live about 15 mins away from GSO. Do they fly caravans out of Greensboro? And if hired, would the schedule include mostly out and backs to where I'd be home everyday? Thanks to anyone who can fill me in
