Is there no upgrade in sight where you are at? How about going for a quick upgrade at another regional? If you already have the 121 time 135 seems like a step down...

Most schedules are out stationed based, meaning you will live in a small town during the day, and fly into the "hub" at night, then back out in the morning. Most of these runs will go Monday morning to Friday night, or Monday night to Saturday morning. Home during the day, gone at night. (Results vary HEAVILY dependent on the base)

As far as new airplanes, it looks like we will be expanding our brazilia fleet, I don't see any new types on their way.

Now that all being said, I would agree with the other folks, I personally would ride out the regional gig. But if you are dead set on getting some turboprop PIC time, I'm sure management would offer you a metro or 1900 spot right off the bat.

Depending on your total time, that is.

And an EMB CA would need to do that why?
Brah, AMF is for YOU.

True, I only said that because I have had a few former 121 trainees as new hires in the 1900.

Was an SIC required on the Be20? Since it's a single pilot aircraft they may have some questions about that time that you logged.

They probably would put you straight into a Be99 with the times you stated. Still, they may have questions about SIC in Be20. Doesn't hurt to try though. If you want to go straight into a 99 be prepared to accept any base assignment they give you.
