Default Lynden Air Cargo

Saw that Lynden's first officer position is currently open- does anyone know what they would consider as competitive? Their website lists 5000 TT among other requirements, i'm curious if it's realistic that they will hire at that. How badly do they need crew right now?

For a company that hasn’t grown in years they sure seem to hire Fo’s pretty often. I wonder why?

Most new-hires do have the hours, though they have relaxed the requirement over the past year or so. They recently purchased additional aircraft and are hiring to fill the seats once they come out of the bridging maintenance. If you're interested, apply. The worst that can happen is you don't get a call.

I am interested in applying for their Flight Engineer opening, I have C-130 FE and crew chief experience from my time in the Air Force as well as FE time in the C-5. I am working on getting my A&P and commercial pilot license at the moment. Ultimately I want to be a pilot though, any current or former Lynden crew know if moving from the FE seat to FO seat is a possibility?

They generally hire professional flight engineers, but it has happened in the past. In fact, as recently as last year an FE moved over to the right seat. That said, when the time comes you would have to be competitive with the group of applicants when they are hiring for FOs, which means you would need to do some flying on the side to get experience. If you want to be involved with the Herc and eventually have a shot at flying it, this might be a path forward. If you just want to be an airline pilot, this is not the best path for you.

Even a career as a Flight Engineer wouldn't be so bad if the pay scale listed on here is correct. I miss my days flying the Herk in the AF, always wanted to pilot one but getting to old to get commissioned. Looks like a more interesting career than the airline route, although my wife might not agree lol.

Pay scales as listed for Lynden on this site are accurate and current based on what management emailed out to the crews. Word is they are going to have another initial class starting around May 1st, so I would expect the application window to open in the next couple weeks.

Bump.
Just curious about the operation, rotations, how home-basing is working.

Thanks.
