Everts Air Cargo
 
Hey Guys

Do anyone has information on Everts Air Cargo? I am looking into their right seat EMB-120 position. Pay? Training contract? Schedules? Quality of company?

I applied for it as well, and got an email back asking for more information less than a week later.

Hey Rat, could you share any info with me as well? The home base appeals to me, but would depend on pay and QOL. THANKS.

Check your PMs

Check the details
 
Read carefully, very carefully, the package. I think it's pretty bad.
Low pay, loading the aircraft AND, on the road for 18 days straight.

I like the 80 and 9er but not for such low pay. Ask questions as the devil is in the details. Here's two; Why are the always advertising? Why did you get such a quick call back?

Crew house in Laredo and if you've never been to a donkey show, well, you're in for a shock! It what you do down there while sitting a lot.

If you've never loaded a large aircraft, that too is something of a shock. Part of training is getting fork lift and jack pallet qualified.

Again, look at the pay for all of this. I read it and then threw it away. You'd be better off at a regional with passes and pax terminals etc.

Imagine loading and unloading an MD80 in the middle of winter. I bet one time would cure you of this job.

That E-120 has been sitting on the barker ramp for months in Laredo. They keep saying they're gunna put it on the 135 cert so you don't have to have an ATP to ride in it but it has yet to happen.

coldtaco 05-31-2017 07:13 PM

I believe the 120 is on the 135 certificate.

Not yet- awaiting FAA approval.

The E-120 is on the 135 Certificate.

Everts Air Cargo for application details. Current F/O minimums are lower than indicated.

I'll be retiring from the Army in about 6 Months and was curious as to the minimums to fly with Everts up in Alaska. I do hold Comm/Inst AMEL, just very few hours. Would love to get back up to Alaska, and I don't mind getting my hands a little dirty.

Not knowing your hours of experience, you can apply with Everest Air Alaska, the 135 operation. They have a couple of C-208s and a PC-12. They have an EMB120 on their 135 certificate which operates predominately in the Lower 48. You will never find a more generous employer, who also flies the line in the DC-6 and C-46, to work for. His door is always open and his mobile is on 24/7. He encourages growth from within. I recommend you send EAC/EAA your CV.

Thank you for your service to our country and all the best.

Packrat 05-30-2018 06:26 PM

Everts Air Alaska is the Part 135 operation based in Fairbanks. There is also a Part 125 operation, Everts Air Fuel that flies the DC-6 and C-46. You could fly for them until you have the time and experience to transition to the Part 121 operation and fly the DC-6, DC-9 or MD-80 in Anchorage.

I am interested in Everts as well, most likely the 121 side in the MD-80 (Home Based). 121 qualified with an unrestricted ATP. Anyone know if they will allow home basing from the State of Alaska? I know they are an Alaska based company but sometimes companies consider Alaska and Hawaii to be "international" and won't home base from either states probably due to cost. Would also be interested in the ANC based DC-9 FO position but am curious as to where they fly the DC-9 out of ANC. Is it mainly within the State of Alaska or do they do any out of state flying from ANC?

You can be assigned to the L48 MD base. You would have to commute to SEA or PDX because those are the closest home basing gateways to ANC/FAI. ANC base pilots are not "home based."

That said there is a relatively new MD-80 pilot base in ANC, so that would be an option if you live in ANC.

Exactly the reason...cost.

At the present time, the DC-9 and the MD-80 ANC bases fly within the state of Alaska. The airports most frequently served: ANC, FAI, BET, ADQ, OME, OTZ, BRW, AKN, DLI, UNK but we''ve been to GAL, CDV, CDB. The jets go pretty much anywhere that is paved, 6000' long and 150' wide.

That doesn't mean you could be assigned elsewhere. For instance when the hurricane devastated Puerto Rico, we had an MD-80 and a Brasilia that flew relief efforts down there for several weeks.

The ANC DC-9 is being phased out and replaced with MD-80s. One is already permanently assigned there. Another will be coming up for the summer (allegedly!). A fourth MD is currently in door conversion and a fifth is slated for conversion this fall/winter. New hire ANC based pilots will be trained in the MD-80.

PM me with any other questions.

Can someone translate this from their hiring ad:

“Do not use IRO for PIC”?

Don't claim as pilot in command experience that time spent as a third-wheel in a crew when you're not at the controls.

The IRO rides along, and sits in one of the two seats when the flying crewmember is out of the seat. When a flight is long enough to require a IRO, due to flight time limitations, the IRO spends time in the pilot seats enroute. While the IRO may occupy the captain's seat, he or she is not the captain, and should not log it as PIC on a 121 flight in which the certificate holder has designated a PIC.

In other words, sole manipulator, a captain does not make: they want you to show PIC the time you were actually the PIC, not simply flying the airplane.

International Relief Officer.

Sits in the left seat while the Capt/PIC is on break.

I keep seeing ads for DC-6 FO. Wonder what thats like... Glorified ramper? I would imagine upgrades are a careers length away. Im sure its some fun flying though.

Not hardly. They fly an historic aircraft in arguably the most beautiful place in the world. They also fly to some challenging airstrips where jets fear to go.

Its a unique opportunity if you've got an adventurous spirit.

What P.Rat said, DC-6 flying would be part of your career you would never forget.

Think about it... you may be the only kid on your block to have a DC-6 type rating on your airman certificate.

Nothing beats the sound of four R-2800s coming to life during engine start, then the roar during the takeoff roll. Alaska, the last prestige vestige to view while passing the time at altitudes of less than 10,000’.

The owner of the airline, himself, straps the DC-6 and C-46 to his back and flies cargo too. Great guy. You’ll never work for a better gent then Rob. Can’t tell a joke... but he does buy the beers.

Commuting from the lower 48
 
Anyone with experience working for Everts and commuting to Alaska from the lower 48? Do the CASS privileges work out or do you find yourself paying your own way?

Thanks in advance for any info!

chipilot 10-17-2018 05:41 AM

I did a 3,000+ commute with Everts all the time. Never had an issue. They have an agreement with every major and regional airline I can think of.

smc2020 11-02-2018 01:58 PM

I'm interested in the EMB120 FO, went to the website, downloaded the pdf but cannot find an email to submit a resume......

PM me your CV. I’ll forward it to EAC for review.

dasheight300 11-03-2018 09:12 AM

Thanks for the response. I live in North Dakota so my commute would be thru Minneapolis more than likely. I haven't seen a whole lot of empty seats now-a-days so I'm concerned about pulling it off in a timely manner.

What is the schedule like at Everts Air Cargo? And how much flight time are pilots getting on average each month?

Packrat 11-17-2018 08:05 AM

Home based 16 on/14 off. First day is a ticket to where the airplane is, last day a ticket home. 60 hour guarantee. That's about right for the L48 folks. Everts Air Cargo is Part 121 Supplemental, not Part 135. There is a Part 135 operation based in FAI.

Does the part 135 side have the same schedule?

No. All the pilots live in FAI.
