Did I read a previous post correctly that a pilot is being worked 25 days a month on average every month? Is there more to the story than what I am reading that makes it attractive enough for people to apply? Mig you seem pretty content with it there, what makes it work for you?

The local airshare pilots have said the exact same thing. The guy was a lower time right seater, but he was looking to move due to zero time off.

Hey guys.. Sorry I haven't been on in a while.

As for the king air fuel question.. I can tell you I virtually never land the C90B with less than 800-1000 pounds unless I absolutely have to. This company operates extremely safely and the CP and DO will never have a problem with excess fuel on board as long as it conforms with SOP, GOM, FAR, and POH guidelines. If someone in the past has told you that, they were either slightly embellishing or it's a practice that no longer exists.

As for the schedule, EAS now operates on a 12/3 schedule. Typically, of the 12 days, you will work roughly 7-8 of them depending on what type your on. I make it work for me because I have a great girlfriend with a great attitude, and our clients/fellow employees are so easy to be with it makes being on the road easy. The 12/3 is new versus the 15/3 we used to be on. As the company continues to grow, the schedule will continue to improve.

Mig,

Of those 7-8 out of 12 days worked.....are they sending you out on a 7-8 day trip or two 3 day trips with a day trip added? It makes a big difference frombeing gone 7 vs gone 3 and 3.
As to your comments about the Cheif Pilot......Mr AF was in recurrent when I got my type on the Phenom 300....he was a great guy.
Thanks

Mig:

I hope everything is working out for you but your statement is 180 degrees from three recently departed EAS pilots that I personally know.

I do hope things have improved.

What is it that you have been hearing about fuel loads and schedules. Why did these guys leave EAS?

Here is some advice... just tell them that you are willing to fly airplanes that have been written up even after the ICT DOM pulled the page out of the book. Also, tell them you'd like to pick up other cities trips on you rotation so you can be away from home for 12-14 days at a time.
