There's always a chance. Problem is if there are spots. The issues with the Dallas base is that a majority of the runs are outstations with very little time spent actually in DFW.

Be99 direct
 
I will be at 1200 in two moths with 500 multi. Is Ameriflight/Sheri hiring hiring directly into the BE99? Willing to move anywhere at a moments notice.


Thanks.

That would be question for Sheri; and yes we are always hiring. In the past we normally stopped running new hire classes before Thanksgiving in preparation for "peak" (Thanksgiving to Christmas), but we will probably be training through the end of the year.

Haven't been on the board for a bit so excuse the mass answer.

Unless you are hiring for a specific run that we haven't been able to fill internally, you will initially be slated for a PA31. There may be a few 99 runs available and offered to the class when you get to indoc.

"Around Dallas" being the operative word. Most of our Texas runs are "outstationed", meaning you live at the outstation. The run will come into the hub (DFW or SAT) at night and back out in the morning. The schedule runs from Monday PM through either Friday or Saturday morning.

The actual Dallas (and San Antonio) based positions are reserve. As explained in previous posts, unlike a 121 operation, our reserves tend to me the more senior positions because of the schedule. (More time off, not flying the same run day after day after day....)

I saw Ameriflight posted a need for a direct entry Metro captain, for CVG or BUF, on climb2350. The flight time requirements seemed a little steep. Something like 2-3K total with 1500 multi pic ?? Are those requirements lower for pilots already working at AMF ? What are the mins. to get a 99 as a new hire ? (assuming there was a vacancy for one of course)

Those are the published times for new hires as well as in-house transitions. There have been pilots moved into metros/1900s with lower times depending on need and individual pilot skill level. Like other operations you may have checked into, insurance requirments go a long way to driving time requirements for captains. You also need to think about the fact that we are one of the few operators that fly metros single pilot.

99 pilot mins are published at 1500 total, 50 turbine. Again, the needs and pilot experience may adjust those numbers.

Thanks

The lowest time is in the 500-700 hour range for E120 first officers. But we only have 8 of those positions in the entire company. For captains it is 1200 total time and that is determined by the regulations for a part 135 operation.

Where is a new hire most likely to be sent now?

HWD (OAK area), PDX, and maybe BUR.

What are the chances of getting direct on the Metro with a Canadian Metro type rating, 1600 TT, 1300 multi, and 150 multi turbine pic (in metro)?

Did AMF pull out of OAK completely? If not, do they intend to and what time frame?

Thanks

Already pulled out of OAK. We've been conducting ops out of HWD for the last two weeks.

I see there is one flight a day out of Mather (KMHR) M-F on the BE99. How is that manned? One flying with one on standby? Does that go very Senior? If so, can you give the approx hire dates of the guy(s) that are there?

Thank you very much for your efforts. I live in the bay area and the Mather flying would be great for me.
