So frustrating since I was going to apply today.

Any feedback appreciated.
The only FO openings that would be listed would be for E120 FOs when we need them. I think we actually have a back log of applicants right now, but you want to get your stuff in.

For FOs on other planes, there aren't specific locations. As Own-nav said, the primary goal there is to get you to part 135 mins (1200 TT, etc) so we can put you in the left seat, usually of a BE99 or maybe a PA31 if you specifically want to go to PDX.

We just had a meeting with the top brass, he mentioned Allegiant, Omni, a couple others that aren't official yet, but didn't say anything about UPS.

FAR 61.51 (F) (2)
(f) Logging second-in-command flight time. Aperson may log second-in-command time only for that flight time during which that person:
(1) Is qualified in accordance with the second-in-command requirements of 61.55 of this part, and occupies a crewmemberstation in an aircraft that requires more than one pilot by theaircraft's type certificate; or
(2) Holds the appropriate category, class, and instrumentrating(if an instrumentrating is required for the flight) for the aircraftbeing flown, and more than one pilot is required under the type certification of the aircraft or the regulations under which the flight is being conducted.

Exemption 9770D
There is one paragraph in the exemption that limits flight time logged as SIC. The time logged under this exemption cannot be used to gain an additional rating or certificate including the ATP. (see page two (2) paragraph one (1) under conditions and limitations of the exemption document attached). This exemption applies to all first officers at Ameriflight except those assigned to the EMB 120.

What does this mean?

If you as are assigned as a first officer in any Ameriflight aircraft except the EMB 120, the time you log is SIC time. It counts towards your total time but cannot be used for the hours required to gain an ATP certificate.
I hope this information clears up any questions regarding the subject, please fell free to send me a note if you have any further questions.

Thanks"

New hires, go in informed.
FAR 135.100 requires a second-in-command pilot for operations under IFR. FAR 135.105 provides an exemption for single pilot operation if there is an operable autopilot and the company jumps thru a few hoops.

If the aircraft dispatches with the autopilot inop, then the regulations require the second pilot, and that particular SIC time would be loggable for all purposes, including qualifying for the ATP.

Do you mean part 135.101?
And that's only for operations carrying passengers under IFR.

Doesn't apply to cargo operators. Most AMF aircraft are barely functioning so having them all require autopilots would probably bankrupt the company.

Hopefully the CVG based guys aren't being pressured into flying potentially struck work...

That was uncalled for. You could have left it at the first sentence (and been informational) but you had to get you biased, opinionated crap in as well, didn't ya.
