If you work, or have worked, at a commuter/regional, you have great insight into how many things work.

Question about the new mins and SIC/PIC type for mil guys. The airframe I came from doesn't have a SIC/PIC type rating but I was an instructor in the C5. Will that count at all? Or does that only apply to the -135 variant guys that have 707 type ratings?

Dude, welcome to the internet. There is a whole thread in the military section on how to count AF hours. Bottom line - PIC is when you signed for the jet/had the A code. Your C-5 time is still PIC even though there is no type rating.

although I'm sure he appreciates the offhand remark, he's referring to having no actual type rating on his certificate as there is no civilian C5. my guess is you're OK, if you're an IP, you have more than 1500 hours anyways.

Was told by a Cathay friend today they will be flying 2 flights a week for DHL from HK to Rickenbacker/Columbus to JFK for DHL starting this next month. Thoughts?

The PAQ has, (or at least HAD) a section to check off if you have time in various types of aircraft. The C5 in on that list.

It's not rocket surgery. I'm pretty sure the resume/PAQ screeners know what they're looking at and why that section is on there.

I would guess that it means they will be flying for DHL from HK to Rickenbacker/Columbus to JFK for DHL. Whats the point, DHL has many contractors?

Yes, and ask any of the Astar/ABX guys whether they'd like to see Atlas have too big of a share in the DHL flying... While business is important, diversity of business is a huge plus for Atlas. DHL flying has historically been unstable.

thank you for not even remotely addressing my question and going on a complete tangent.
