Alpine Air Hiring
 
Alpine Air is looking to hire Captains. Pilots can expect a 3-5 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:

1150 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.

I've reached out to them twice and never heard anything back. Not even a TBNT. PM'd you.

Cheers,

"Pilots can expect a 3-5 day work week"

How do they manage to work 3 days a week (I was also told 4 at one point), when other carriers are 5/2 M-F or T-Sat?

It depends on the route you fly and if itís UPS or USPS. Also each base has its own way of operating. Iíve been out of the loop for a while but I had an awesome schedule when I was there. Even though Alpine is cargo itís not like other carriers I.e Ameriflight. The company has gone above and beyond to improve qol for its pilots. Iím still scratching my head why many people place Ameriflight on this golden pedestal like itís the god of cargo companies when there are better cargo companies out there if one chooses that route. Alpine still has the quarterly and Christmas bonus I believe and that helps, and yes double bonus for Christmas time. When I was at Alpine, if the company had the aircraft and the pilots they would completely displace ameriflight out of SLC. Perhaps thatís still the plan as they grow since they already have taken over a handful of routes from them there.

Is Alpine still hiring FO's or plan to again in the future? I see it all the time in the job postings but it seems like they're really looking for PIC's. Also haven't been able to find pay for an Alpine FO, if anyone knows that, that would be very helpful thank you!

I believe the aircraft they fly don't require FOs. So unless they have a mentor program, they likely aren't hiring them.

From a friend who knows a friend, who works at Alpine* About a year ago they bought all the Great Lakes 1900 and E120's. The 1900 might be easier to staff now. But, at that time, some talk about getting low time guys in the right seat to help feed the expansion and attrition from people moving to the next level. If they fly the E120, that will of course need an FO. Prior to COVID, they had 99 and 1900 FO's. My guess, like most here is they don't need the FO's now.... As they say here, you wont know unless you apply. Someone who has turbine time, or 135 time in the right seat might have a better chance.
