Pilots without A&P's are home based. A&P pilots have the option of living in a based area and working as a mechanic while not flying. They have several divisions that you could be assigned to. Airborne Data Aquisition, Sterile Insect Application, Airborne Product Application, Intelligence Surveillance and Recon (ASR), Fire Protection. They have a large fleet of the unpressurized King Air C-90's that they aquired from the Army, and they have a fleet of King Air 200's as well. Basically, they get contracts for the aircraft and / or pilots to fly at various locations and they send you to the location on a rotation until the contract is completed.

The 200's are used primarily in the ASR department for military cantracts overseas. I spoke with them about ASR a while ago, and at that time they were 90 days on and 30 days off. All assignments were overseas deployments doing recon. work for the Dept Of Defense. Basically you will fly a 200 with a bunch of military folks, data recorders, cameras, etc, in the back. They want people with King Air or similar experience, and for the ASR you will need to be able to obtain a Secret Security Clearance.

That is about all that I know...however this info was from well over a year ago, so some or all could be outdated. They seem to be a great company and everyone that I spoke to there was very pleasent. The pilots that I talked with seemed happy to be there.

I'm a few hundred hours over their advertised minimums, but when I apply they just send me a post card saying they have no positions.

auburnpilot:

-What was the interview like (technical questions, rules/regs, or just a chat to see if you're a fit for their operations)?
-Were you interviewing for a FO or Capt position?
-Were you offered a position ?
-Any discussion of pay?

Thanks.

Actually the '90's are Army Ute U-21G (Beech 65 A90-1) and U-21H (Beech 65 A90-4). They are a kind of King Air precurser, and are much lighter than a King Air, as they were built unpressurized.

The -1 is analogous to the A90 - short wing, rectangular windows, or round plugs in rectangular frames, "triangular" last window a la Queen Air; but 9650 lbs.

The -4 is more like a B90, with the long wing, but with more modern fuel panel & electrics, higher gross weight (10200 lbs), same Queen Air last window.

Good company.

I do realize this, however, I found it easier to just use the generic C-90 as a descriptor because if I had said that they fly the old U-21, I am almost certain that I would have had a number of replies that asked, "what is a U-21". I would then have had to reply back with, "it is basically an unpressurized C-90 with some other differrences". It just saves time to use the C-90 designator. They look very similar and are (or were) both made by Beech. Even Dynamic compares the two though, as in my interview 2 years ago I was asked if I had any King Air 90 or 200 experience.

Thanks for adding the particulars though.

No problem!

For a couple more particulars, I would say they are more like a B90 as they have the old PT6A-20 engines, but all have ignitors instead of glow plugs.

They WISH they had the PT6A-27 engines(or later version) of the C90 's!!
