Default Seattle area flying?

Just a shot in the dark but is anyone aware of any flying jobs in the Seattle-Tacoma area? Primarily looking for 91 corporate but 135 is great too. Any info is appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Air Pac is a p.135 cargo operation based in boeing field. They required 135 mins of course but it seems like they are always hiring. They have a few different planes, from piper chieftains to senecas.

Air Pac did not use to like to hire pilots with too much experience. 1200 total with 200 multi was the sweet spot with them. 1500 and 400 multi and you were out of the running.

I had 1200 hours and 125 multi one spring and they were encouraging me to keep at it. So, I went to Alaska for 6 months and returned with 1800 hours total an ATP and 500 hours of multi engine and then they suddenly would not talk to me anymore.

Why would this be? Perhaps because they were operating on a small profit margin and were using timebuilders exclusively. Otherwise why would they be afraid their pilots would jump ship when they get so few extra hours. Not saying it wasn't so, just a curious operating model. You would think it to be cheaper to train a small, reliable, long term core of pilots and to keep them over the years rather than pay higher insurance rates and train all the time.

I doubt that was the case. I know the CP very well, he use to be my instructor out in CLM before being the CP at Air Pac. When i was looking for a 135 gig, he told me they were cutting back on the flying and to keep my resume updated. I got a call from Aeroflight about 3 days later.

In the early 1990's Air Pac was the big stepping stone in the NW. Pilots would get hired there and had to stay for years before moving on to a regional. It was common to be there three years or more before being able to find a better job.

Then the industry began to pick up and pilots were not staying very long. Just a year ago I heard that Air Pac had a 6 month training contract. As such it is better to hire guys who fit the window than to spent a month training them only to have them leave a few weeks later.

Most companies have a similar window. After I was laid off I tried to get hired at several smaller cargo outfits and was told that I was "Over Qualified". They didn't want to hire a 757 guy and be used as a paycheck till I moved on. I just wanted a job.

Get the low-timers, train them and expect them to move on quickly is pretty much the business model of most flight schools. I've known folks who had 800+ hours and were CFI/CFIIs and were denied jobs at flight schools because they "would leave for the regional" too soon. And if you say 'I don't plan on doing that' the person doing the hiring replies "I've heard that before."
I suspect that the freight folks hear the same thing.
