Default Lynden Air Cargo

Are there any Lynden Air Cargo guys here? I have an application in for a Loadmaster position. So far I have heard great things about the company, but I wanted to get a first hand opinion.

Known the folks at that company for years and I have the highest regards for both management and flight crews. I think you will enjoy being part of the Lynden family.

I applied to them no less than three times for the same position with my 747 load experience. Never a response. Good luck!

Taught one of the owners two sons and son-in-law how to fly. Great people. I still remember sitting around with the boss trying to figure out what kind of plane they should get to replace the electra's. The c-97's were too old but there was talk of 737's with the gravel kit. Then one day a couple c-130's show up. Then another day we hear, "hey, I bought another c-130!" That family loves to fly. Favorite plane was the super stinson on floats.


ps - Drink a mug a milk a meal!

Judging by the amount of stuff I see them put on to the Hercs daily, I would assume they are doing quite well.

I did not. But at this point I think it is for the better. If I ended up getting the job I dont think I would be able to finish school. Once I am done with school I will try again.

Anything new for Lynden? Seems like a great job for freight into exotic places! Probably more glamour and money elsewhere. Still all C-130s/L-382s?
