All: Long time reader but first time poster. As for Berry Aviation, do they hire other than Mil Pilots for overseas gigs? Commercial Civ Pilot with a lot of downrange time as a ground pounder. Just thinking what type of flying I might want to get into down the road. Btw APC has been a very informative site. Thanks

Don't know if this can help answer your question but the position I was hired for in SAN is for a military contract yet my background is all Civi.

Best..

Thanks. Very much appreciated.

I've sworn that I'll only go back to the sandbox if I'm in a flying capacity and I don't mean riding a Blackhawk. OR riding in a Humvee or MRAP every day.

I like the ISR side of the missions as I feel it directly helps the guy's on the ground but any flying in that environment I would view as a challenge and rewarding. Air America style

Know problem,
I know they do have contracts here stateside but don't have many details. Pretty much the only reason I accepted a gig here was it's home every night, sounds like a pretty routine gig and the folks sound like a decent bunch.

Here's a couple of pretty specific questions,
Would like to hear from anyone working at Berry please.
How does the training go? I know that I will spend a week in San Marcos Tx, followed by some time in San Antonio for sic training on the Metro. Could anyone share a more detailed itinerary of the stay? Is the training done to proficiency with a sign-off for a 135 sic or is there a checkride with a separate examiner? How long was your training? As I get closer to the class date I'm sure many of these answers will start to fall in place. The last time I did a 135 checkout was a PIC in a helicopter 26 years ago. Hardly the same I'm sure.

Thank you in advanced.

I worked for them for a bit in the Metro. Typical On-Demand Cargo Gig. Lots of night flights. I do believe they have started using 120's now for their cargo hauls.
