I'm pretty sure that I applied for a job at Baltia when I was unemployed in 1992 (I'm not kidding!)? Glad to hear they've made it to Phase II

Default potential option

There's a 72 freighter outfit in Guam, but I can't remember their name.
I saw one of their 727-200s (with winglets) on the ramp at PHNL yesterday. Good luck to you.
Cheers,

My buggy whip maker says this whole 2 person cockpit thing is just a fad.

My slide rule calibration guy said the same thing...

... A short fad between three person and one person cockpits.

Boy you are a dinosaur! when I was in high school and had the opportunity to visit the old Western Airlines headquarters in L.A. I was introduced to the B-737-100/200 with a flight engineer panel and seat. United had 737's as well with the flight engineer seat during the 70's. The flight engineer seat in the US is disappearing faster than a fat lady or man licking a ice cream cone. You can count on one hand all the operators left in the states you maybe better serve to look overseas such as South America, Africa, and Middle East. Good Luck!

I will, in fact I might need to add a finger. FedEx hires pilots not Professional flight engineers. The 27 at FedEx is on its last legs. ATI has 3 or 4 8's but some of those are headed for the boneyard. I will give you the other six companies but the pickings are slim indeed.
