AMF is a lot more interested in your qualifications, attitude, physical condition, and ability to do the job than in your age. Bear in mind that the company's "exercise benefit" involves loading and unloading freight. . . .

Part 135 Canyon Operator
 
To the Pilot thinking of flying for Ameriflight,

What were the minimums for you to get hired flying
C402's in the GCanyon? 1500? How much Multi?
And are they hiring?

I almost took a job flying C206's up there in the Canyon
a few years back,..but I turned it down because I didn't
want to live in a trailer. But with this economy, I might
bite a bullet or two-

Goodluck with Ameriflight if you go there, I know their big
on currency, and recency of experience for new hires, but
sounds like yr good there.

Thanks, but no thanks...

AMF is a great place to fly. I was there for 5 years and loved it (for the most part) Excellent experience...too bad that they got the flight following system years ago...it was great without it.....:eek: :D...Mt Rainier, St Helens, Shasta, Hood, Sisters, Puget Sound, San Juans, The Coast from SFO to BFI at "legal altitude"..you get the picture.

That's ok. My response was partly sarcastic to someone who would actually express interest in a position by saying, "What would the schedule be?"

I understand it takes about a month to complete training. Can someone go through the approximate amount of time through each phase of training until you are qualified to fly the line on your own?

Thanks

Most people start in either the Chieftain or BE99 in which case it will go something like this:

Week One: indoctrination in BUR

Week Two: Aircraft specific Ground and Simulators (BUR).

Week Three and Four: Go to wherever your training captain is based and do your training in the actual airplane.

Thanks for the response.

Does the airline provided transportation to BUR? And are you responsible for your own hotel while in training?

Thanks again for any and all replies.
