I thought the rumor I heard (years ago) is that it was possibly driven by FedEx since itís their plane.

APC says their page was last updated in 2017 so I would go by Wiggins own website which shows NOT currently hiring.

Wiggins is owned by Ameriflight so it would not surprise me if they start integrating hiring mins to be the same just to keep stuff standard across the board. But also could be that the Caravans are owned by Fed Ex themselves as previously stated.

The multi requirement is due to the Beech 99s they fly for UPS.

If I recall correctly Wiggins got purchased by Ameriflight. They may operate under their own certificate / do their own flying but I think it might go through AMF now. Someone double check me though.
