Default Alpine Air Updated

Alpine Air is looking for pilots at our Billings, Denver, and Sioux Falls bases. Billings based pilots can expect a 4-5 day work week with the opportunity for extra days. Home every night schedule with a typical day logging 3-4 hours. Alpine does not require new hire BE99 Captains to sign a training contract. All aircraft have Garmin 500 series GPS or better.

Alpine is excited to announce a guaranteed interview with Omni Air International based on a few prerequisites:
• Pilots must upgrade to the B1900 and reach 1200 hours in type
• If the pilot works toward becoming a Training Captain or Check Airman in either airframe, this number will be reduced to 800 hours in type

Preferred qualifications include:

B1900 Flight Time:
1200 Total
100 Multi

BE99 Flight Time:
1100 Total
Must have ME, instrument, and commercial ratings

BE99 First Officer:
900 Total
Must have ME rating

This position is a Full-Time position. First year pilots can typically expect to earn between $55,000-$60,000 per year for BE99 Captains, while B1900 Captains can expect $70,000-$80,000 utilizing compensation programs like rate per route, per diem, annual retention bonus, etc. Compensation is based on a 5 day work week so you will be paid for 5 days even if working only 4 days. Benefits include: Generous Paid Time Off, ten (10) paid holidays per year, Medical, Dental, Vision, Life Insurance, and 401(k) with employer contribution are available immediately upon employment.

Please feel free to PM me with any questions or email a resume to [email protected]

The Omni interview sounds like a nice add on. I talked to CD a couple years ago about working at Alpine. I ended up taking a job closer to home, but sound like the kind of Chief Pilot you’d want to work for. I think that no contract in the 99 is crucial too. Ameriflight has one for the FO’s that come in. Does alpine have one for them? Personally I think you shouldn’t. But, be extremely selective in who you bring in as an FO. Helps to avoid getting someone who’s just trying to build flightime for the regional and not upgrade at the company.

Is Alpine flying the D model now? Any idea who many they are supposed to get? Rumors of larger aircraft? Thanks!

I know they have one 1900D for sure. Not sure about anymore? Something about getting it certified for cargo I think?

Yes we have two D models now. Have an STC to convert more into cargo configuration and bids are in on more D models. I think we are shooting for st least 6 more but that’ll take time of course.

Is an ATP required to transition into the 1900?

Any bases offer a rotational schedule or are they all 5 days/2 off?

ATP not required but you will be held to ATP PTS standards on the checkride.

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.

Good info! Do you know if they have any outstation-based (gone all night) routes?

Someone with current info will chime in I’m guessing. But, when I talked with them 2.0 years ago, they had a option to live in Billings, and layover during the day. Or, live in the outstation and layover in Billings at night. I think all the bases operate this way (?DEN SLC FSD BIL?) Sounded like some guys lived in Billings, some lived out and about. Not sure if there is a route map?

Is the plan to eventually transition fully to the D model? Larger aircraft in the long term outlook?
