Usually, your dispatcher will have your route filed and ready for you to pick up your clearance. It may depend from base to base, but my dispatchers have been pretty helpful in filing plans for both scheduled and nonscheduled routes.

Not entirely true. We have Whats called Center stored flight planes. Which means our Scheduled flights have their flight plan's saved to an FAA computer and the computer will transmit them one hour before dep. Unscheduled yea the DX's do it.

Not around these parts, they stopped doing center stored plans a few months back.

CloudPilot57 06-27-2009 05:54 PM

Apc says cass approved but also swa is only agreement. Can you jump on anyone else or just swa? Also, can you do trip trades with other pilots in your base for more time off? Or is that not possible since everyone does the same 5 on 2 off sked? Thanks!

Coehill 06-27-2009 07:38 PM

So nobody has heard back from them regarding interviews?

I find that hard to believe. Unless your in CVG. Even then you are getting some Center stored plans.

Bowersbum 06-28-2009 08:27 PM

I wouldn't worry too much about having alot of time to apply to AMF, I got interviewed/hired with the nearly the exact minimums they require and about 8 hours of actual.

We don't have center stored plans anymore. The company now does it with a new software system that make it look like it's a center stored. The software files automatic every day. The company can make changes to each flight plan in house. Last I heard OAK was taking care of them.

The software gives an instantaneous correction to the flight plans in the software. Once a pilot fills out the discrepancy report and it's COMATTED up to OAK and entered into the computer the changes are immediate, no more waiting for three weeks with bad flight plans in the system and having ATC mad because three flight plans pop up for the same flight number.

Right To Work In U.S. For AMF
 
If you are a US citizen with a passport and birth cert. is there anything else you need to prove that you have the right to work in the U.S.???

CaptainTeezy 06-30-2009 11:55 AM

It says they are hiring on Climbto350 but then is says also go to their website and fill out the application...but on their website it says they are only hiring from their pool. What a waste of Climbto350. :mad:

Not sure what competitive is right now, but I can tell you that a friend of mine got interviewed (and hired) with just a little over 1180 TT about a month ago.

Climbto350 is a waste of money. AMF is hiring and they have new-hire classes scheduled through September.

CaptainTeezy 06-30-2009 02:40 PM

According to the AMF website....they are only hiring from their pool...and you can only update/edit a previous application.

hi208 06-30-2009 03:29 PM

This is what was posted on our pilot portal, and about four threads below this one. I am pretty sure they are not just hiring from a pool. If they were, they wouldn't be asking current pilots to tell there friends. If the online application doesn't work tell then in the email you send them!

CaptainTeezy 07-01-2009 05:44 AM

Why the sudden need for pilots at AMF? Is it due to upgrades, expansion, people leaving? Any idea what the upgrade time is to turbine equipment?

Terminations? Was there a mass firing of some kind?

CloudPilot57 07-01-2009 05:17 PM

Just got an e-mail saying that there are more qualified people, but I can keep updating.
rough estimates cause Im too lazy to look right now: 1230tt, 900 multi, 800 turbine, 1100 xc. Good luck to those with more time, looks like a great place to work. I'll just keep updating cause I know there are tons of people with way more time.

supersix-4 07-01-2009 06:43 PM

With nearly 3000 hrs and Two 121 Jet types they sent me the" we found that your qualifications do not meet our current needs" Letter. Whatever.

FlyingPirate 07-01-2009 07:08 PM

I think they are looking for previous 135 experience as well as low time pilots so that when hiring does pick up again they won't leave for a better opportunity.


When did you all send your resume? I sent it last week and still haven't gotten anything.

Definitely overqualified for those guys!

CaptainTeezy 07-02-2009 06:03 AM

Can you get in trouble with the FAA for saying you have 1200 hours when you really have 25,000??? I guess the question is...is it illegal to falsify documents if it makes you less qualified? :D

I don't think the application specifically says to list all you flight hours...

Nevermind. Just did the telephone pre-screening. They are hiring for the Chieftain in Portland, Oakland and Phoenix. Interviews will be conducted in PHX on July 15th and they are looking to hire 30-40 applicants. They said I'd hear next week if they'd like to interview me.

I sent everything in on the 26th of June, and was called and did the phone interview today. 1515 TT, 1200 multi & ATP. Was also told that I would hear soon if selected for an interview slot in Phoenix on the 15th of July.

250 or point 65 07-02-2009 06:12 PM

Congrats bud! Hopefully we both get interviews, it'll be nice to finally meet you!

FlyingPirate 07-02-2009 07:32 PM

I had the phone interview today as well. They told me that only Portland and Oakland were the only bases they were planning on hiring into, they didn't mention anything about PHX. They told me they would tell me next week sometime if they want me to come to PHX.

I applied last week with 1650tt and 55 me.

250 or point 65 07-02-2009 07:41 PM

He told me they were hiring into all 3 and asked if I had a preference. I said PHX, but I said it wasn't a very strong preference. Hopefully that doesn't hurt me. I wonder how many they called and how many will get interviews if they are looking for 30-40.

undflyboy06 07-02-2009 08:00 PM

That's pretting interesting about the bases. I was also told Oakland and Portland. He also asked me if there were any other bases that I would prefer to be based at (Omaha, and Cincinnati).
