Thanks for the info.

Our PHX base tends to run senior. Some have gotten PHX as their first choice because they were willing to take a PA31/Be99 outstation. Has a good mix of equipment, however, most of the flights are outstationed with only a few of the flights actually being based in PHX.

Anyone on this thread looking for a KingAir gig in Houston? Preference given to former AMF 99 drivers :D

How many pilots are based in OAK?

On the APC website it says you are hiring 10 a month. How much would say that is for growth and how much due to turnover?

Thanks.

I'm not sure how many pilots in OAK, My guess is around 15, but as far as growth and turnover, we have had the same number of pilots on our list, plus or minus ten, for over a year. I think there is growth, things are constantly changing, new run here, lost run there. 10 per month, I would guess every month we lose 3-5 to other jobs, regionals, corporate, etc. I think we also lose a few in training, not everybody can pull off the lifestyle, schedule, or even training, it's not easy. For good reason though, single pilot is no joke. Hope that answers your question.

That does help. Thank you.

Losing up to 30% of your pilots a year can be telling. I believe you will never know if its your thing until you try. On paper it doesn't sound tough. But reality often times is different from perception.

One more question if you dont mind. I am 42 yoa and in decent shape. Do you think an old fart like me would struggle with the flying new hires would be doing out of OAK?

Yes. I'd just forget about it. Too late to the party.

We've had a lot older guys than 42 come here to work. Take a chance. PM me with any questions you have ATOP40.
