Will Ameriflight hire pilots with only high school diplomas that are only 19 to 20 years old?

I hope that's not the case. Single pilot IFR can be very challenging & sometimes dangerous. It isn't for everybody, even if they do meet the minimum requirements.

If you meet 135 minimums, your age and education are not a restriction. I recall one pilot who hired on, moved up and was typed in an E120 before he was old enough to get an ATP.

If you can fog a mirror and meet the mins, you're in for an interview. The chances of anyone passing training at AMF is around 50%.

Be hot on your basic pilot nav IFR skills. I've had trainees who could do GPS routes and then vectors to ILS but start doing rapid fire pilot nav approaches without GPS and radar coverage and they just fall apart.

"Chances" are a lot better if you come in with a good IFR scan and have your flows down before the first sim.

I'm just gonna throw out a recommendation. MS flight simulator is 10 bucks for an old version, another 15 for a joystick. Have your buddy sit next to you and watch you to make sure you are up to PTS standards and that you're doing it all by the book.

I like the SBA ILS for practice, no vectors just keep switching frequencies.

have your flows down

yeah have your "flows" down aka memorize the entire checklist verbatim. and whobetide you if you say LIGHTS ON INSTEAD OF LIGHTS SET. literally the worst traning ive ever seen. they BRAGGED about their 40 percent failure rate. which is probably worse than that. go anywhere else but here if you value your tickets and pria.
