Can anyone speak on QOL and what training is like specifically for street captains on the ATR in Hawaii? I have 3600 TT, 1200 121 jet SIC, 1100 PIC and am considering a change from my current RJ gig. If I applied I could go straight to captain, right? Thanks

I know the training is actually in Idaho and Ohana only does day lines. Morning or evening shift. I know Hawaii is an incredibly expensive place to live in. It can be expensive to move to with pets or a shipping container. You probably at least want to ship your car, it's cheaper then buying one there. A cheaper house is over 600k and even a cheaper condo will cost $1000/month maintenance fees. You better learn about Hawaii culture too

Initial/Indoc is in Coer d'Alene, sim is in HOU at Flight Safety.
About a 5-6 week footprint.
Yes DEC is correct. Typical IOE and then AM or PM and a cargo line in the 72.
AM starts around 6:00am and done by 12:30PM, PM starts approx. 1:00pm finish by 8:30pm. (approx.)
There are cheap cars here but yes less than $2500 to ship a car from the East Coast, less otherwise, ie West Coast.
6 legs a day.

Thanks. Yeah Iím familiar with the cost of living in hawaii but with the bonuses and PIC salary I still think itíd be a step up in pay overall from my right seat RJ gig.

Whatís the monthly schedule like? I.e How many days on/off? And is there much time on reserve?

PICs tend to work more currently because Ohana can't hold on to them. I'd say 18-21 days a month of work give or take a day. FOs have a little more flexibility because there are more of them and some want more flying and some want less. I'd say 12-19 days off work per month depending what you're goals are. This could change at any time due to staffing.

You have to work twelve days a month to get the bonus. You aren't eligible for any bonuses until you pass IOE, so don't count on any of that money for a few months after you start Indoc. Also, you will be working for 75% base pay until you pass sim training. Empire pays for the hotel and rental car at training. Also very important to note is that vacation and PTO days don't count towards the twelve days required for the monthly bonus. They also tend to schedule a full work-month for captains who take vacation. These two practices are shady. The $1000/mo bonus is paid out twice per year in January and July. Taxes are withheld at about 25-30% for the bonus payments. So if you finish IOE in mid-January for example, you will get about $3500 out of the $5000 "moving expense" bonus. You will be getting paid at the base salary until you get your first bonus payout sometime in July again for about $3500 (because you didn't qualify for the bonus in January as IOE days worked don't count towards the bonus). Your next bonus (and first full bonus payment if you worked at least twelve days per month) won't be until the next January. So you have the potential of going an entire year working with only $7000 of bonus money in your pocket. They don't tell you this when you sign up and it is important information if you are taking on the expense of moving to Hawaii.

Correction: it's a "sign on" bonus, not a "moving expense" bonus.

Any idea what the cargo lines are going to look like, and how many you will see in a month? Do you bid your schedule at all, it is it assigned to you?

You give your preferences and then a schedule is assigned. We haven't bid for a line pretty much all year because you have to have a special qualification to fly into JHM and not everybody is qualified...
