Off topic, but what other forum? I’m always look for new aviation forums. Thanks!

Their Sioux Falls base offers an awesome rotational schedule. 2 weeks on 2 weeks off essentially. One of the weeks is reserve (fly if they need you) and the other week is a paid week off. The work weeks are standard freight days gone all day.
Silly question...if Alpine (and other 135 feeders) run a 3/1 or 2/2 schedule, who covers the remaining pilot's "off" week(s)?

Too bad SLC/DEN/BIL don't run a 3/1.....I'd be definitely interested and probably stick to it somewhat long term.

Usually a good size pilot pool at larger operators. Needs to be that way to cover vacation, type school, random days off, people on various schedules and such. If you are looking for a 2/2 3/1 type schedule, might still talk to them. These types of places are not “one way, and it’s our way”. If you can offer something that fits the company needs, they would probably be interested in you. In general, I’d say they need you more than you need them.

Thanks for some of this useful info! Question. I've heard that alpine aircraft do not use autopilots and it's all handflying. True?

My understanding is none of the 99 have them. Only a couple 1900’s do. Overall, it’s not really a big deal. Legs are short, flying the same routes over and over reduces the workload big time. Having WAAS gps helps too (I think they are 530W or 750 equipped)

Does Alpine hire SIC's into the right seat of the 99? If so what're the mins?

I do believe they do. Probably close to 1,000tt would be my guess. Just finishing you up to fly left seat. Similar to Ameriflight.

Man, I wish they had jumpseat/CASS privileges...I need to keep the family in Vegas while I'm working on my TT, but would happily commute up to SLC to work for them...

I think they have home based stuff similar to Ameriflight. You might talk with them about flying in SLC. The drive isn’t bad and they might throw more money your way instead of getting a rental car. Might be able to work out a 7/7 or 14/14 type schedule. Might get sent to other bases for you tour too.
