L and G:


If and when you move up to the BE1900 from the 99'... Do you receive a type rating on just the 1900 or do you also receive a type rating on the BE300/350? Do they put a FO in with you at times?

Thanks,

Just the 1900 (BE190). Sometimes you will have an FO, sometimes not. High flight time runs are the most likely to have an FO.

Oh, yeah. You are right in the numbers.

I don't know what the hiring plan is for the FO to Captain program over the next few months. But if you are interested, you should definitely contact our recruiting department.

I'm a former AMF pilot that has been out of aviation for the last 4 years. I flew the BE99 in PHX back in 07-08. I then went to Air Methods in the PC12 until getting out of flying in 2013.

I'm in the process of returning to my pilot career, and AMF is a place I am seriously considering. My current flight experience:
ATP (MEL)
2500 total
1500 turbine (1100 pic)
870 multi
1600 135
350 121 sic in be190

Would I be eligible for the 1900? And if so, how do the bonuses work? I haven't found much information about it on the company site.

Application Question

I noticed on the Ameriflight web site that only Captain positions are available, is there a way to post a resume for a FO position. Or do apply to the Captain position without the time requirements met, or are there so many applicants that they don't need FOs at this time?

Hi, there!

I saw some of your questions from earlier this week and figured I'd answer them all here. Frmrbuffdrvr answered some, too! He's great!

For the Accelerated Captain Program (where you are an FO in our 99), we have a few positions open for our October 9th training class. We likely won't have any after that until next year. So if we move fast enough, we can get you in for October if that's what you are interested in!

Based on the hours you listed previously, you're good to go for the program (a little short on night, but that shouldn't be an issue).

Just looked into why the FO 99 position isn't showing up and we're really not sure why. Please, apply to a 99 Captain position instead: Captain Beech 99 Cargo Pilot - Careers At Ameriflight, LLC

If you are wanting to be in our October training class, please apply asap!
If you need any help, just let me know! We are in the last days of hiring for October (we have to have at least one week to get the paperwork, drug test, etc done).
Feel free to message me when you apply and I'll get a recruiter on it immediately!

Would I be a good candidate for one of those B99 FO spots? :)

TT-684h
PIC-550
XC-440
NIGHT-155
IFR-95

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to respond and your willingness to help! The 1900s that I fly for my current company are not glass. They are your standard steam gauge instruments with an HSI and Garmin 430 units. Some of the 1900s have ADS-B and some don't and some have autopilot and others don't.

As far as accruing PIC time goes, I can attain some PIC time but by the time I would reach 135 IFR PIC minimums, I would still be very short of PIC time. Do you think I would still be a viable candidate?

Thank you again!

Hi,

Absolutely wonderful the kind of equipment you are flying now on your 1900s! You'd be very familiar with ours.

I would definitely advise you to apply when you reach the 1,200TT.
But I don't want to get your hopes up. I don't think we would be able to hire you with your PIC time so low. Our lead pilot recruiter told me he would likely be able to take you at 400-450 PIC because your other times are so great! But ultimately we fly single pilot in our PA-31s, 99s, BE1900s, and SA227s, so they require that 500 PIC to make sure you are prepared to both be a Captain and fly single pilot.

Hope that helps!

Hi, there!

Nice to "meet" a former AMFer!

With your hours, you definitely meet the 1900 Captain mins, so that's a good thing!
You would have to get IFR current before we could make you an offer, but yes you are eligible for the 1900.

The BE1900 has the normal salary that increases annually on its own.
It also has a Turbine Retention Bonus of 20% of the salary. That gets paid to you every year after the second year of you being here.
The other bonus is a BE1900 Captain Bonus that gives you $20,000. You get the first $10,000 after the successful completion of your IOE and the next $10,000 18 months after your hire date.

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions!

Hoping to have you back someday soon!

Hi! :)

You'd be a little low on TT for our Accelerated Captain Program (FOs in our 99s). All your other times are fantastic! But your TT needs to be closer to 800.
Here are the time mins for reference: 800 TT, 25 ME, 300 XC (defined as point to point), 100 night, 500 PIC, 75 instrument

At your current hours, you'd qualify for our regular First Officer position in our EMB120s. Right now, we don't have any of those positions available, but definitely an option since you are already qualified for it.

Hoping to have you on our team soon! Let me know if you have any other questions!
