Default You must load

You will get fork lift and pallet jack trained. Try IFL, I think they may be better.

Negative on the fork lift training. Pallet Jack and Strapping/Unstrapping Training... es verdad. Save a lot of money of gym memberships however.

New DO with positive track record. One of the best C/Ps in the buesiness, if not the best. Owner of the company is a line pilot too who straps the DC-6 and C-46 to his back on a regular basis even in the dead of winter.

All in all... first choice for Lower 48 flying and Alaska flying. Who knows... you can be the only kid on your block to get a type rating on the DC-6.

Question

How many hours a year do the guys fly?
Do you ever break the 60 hour guarantee?

It is strange how their Brasilias became static displays in LRD. I think they gave up on that program.

400-500. It depends upon how busy the season is. For instance, when the car factories are retooling in July/August it can be pretty slow. Other times (like the last couple months) its gang busters.
