Iím sorry I misread this, thought you were wondering about the bidding process.
We have two 74s with three repeating customers (FLX, ANA and MIL).
Military will send you around the world to some interesting places, the other two are like endless ground hog days.
Head to our company site and check the schedules for the 74, that will give you a better idea.
Good luck!

Are internal recs or attending a job fair required to get on with WGA?

Default Mil conversion

Does WGA want military conversion added to hours for military applicants?

Iím thinking of applying but not sure theyíll consider me:

Retired mil, 2400TT, 1900PIC, all F-16 and T-38 (no multi-crew time). Unrestricted ATP, clean record, been working as a sim IP for the last few months (12-month currency is pretty low). Canít afford regional pay and have to commute from Oklahoma, so looking for something else like ACMI or corporate jets.

Thanks!

Yeah I plan to apply to Omni, expecting an app window next month. Applied to Kalitta but haven't heard anything. Sounds like Atlas/Southern/ATI/ABX are places to avoid and their pay is pretty low. Ultimate goal is FedEx/UPS or a legacy.

You’ve got the background to go direct to a major, including purple and brown, once you have some 121 time to get current. Take any of the regionals with bonus pay high enough to meet your needs, or any ACMI with sufficient pay; then start applying, attending job fairs, calling your old squadron buddies for internals, and go straight to wherever you want to be.

I'd do it, doesn't hurt to try, I don't know our mins for military pilots. Apply everywhere, then choose. I'd go straight to Fedex and UPS. If you have your military buddies there, ask to help. They love military and commuters there. Majority of military did not have multi-crew time going to majors any way.
