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!



Thanks for the information sir!.

I'm already in the pool for the EMB120 F/O but no luck yet.

Hi, everybody!

We, along with UPS Airlines, are very excited to make public our intent to expand our Gateway Program!
We aim to finalize the agreement by the end of the year and start the first selection process of Ameriflight pilots in January.



Press release below:

DALLAS, TX – Ameriflight and UPS Airlines are close to finalizing an agreement to further enhance the career opportunities for flight crewmembers at Ameriflight. The airlines have agreed in principal to expand the UPS/Ameriflight pilot gateway program to current and future Ameriflight pilots. The program will provide the opportunity for selected pilots at Ameriflight, the nation’s largest Part 135 cargo carrier, to have a clear path to UPS Airlines, a global carrier serving more than 220 countries and territories.

The program will be open to qualified Ameriflight pilots who are selected to be part of the program. These selected participants will be required to fulfill a number of benchmarks including Ameriflight requirements, personal/professional development and UPS mentoring. Successful completion of the program will afford for these Ameriflight pilots to qualify for a guaranteed interview with UPS Airlines subject to its hiring needs and meeting all program and hiring requirements.

Ameriflight and UPS launched the Gateway Program earlier this year, with an initial phase that offers a defined career path to students who successfully complete the UPS Airlines’ Intern Program.

“I am thrilled with the expansion of the Gateway Program, as it will provide a career path opportunity for our pilots to start at Ameriflight and continue on to UPS Airlines,” says Ameriflight Chief Operating Officer Bill Poerstel. “We value the relationship with UPS, which is Ameriflight’s largest customer.”

Capt. Roger Quinn, UPS Airlines Director of Training said, “We are pleased to announce our intent to expand the UPS-Ameriflight gateway program to include currently-employed and future Ameriflight pilots. Ameriflight provides important support to the UPS air network, with many dedicated crewmembers who help our company meet service commitments to our customers. These pilots understand our business and should make strong candidates as we recruit future generations of professionals to fly UPS aircraft.”

The first selection of Ameriflight pilots entering the Gateway Program will be made in early 2018. Further program details will be announced by the end of this year.

About Ameriflight: Ameriflight was founded in 1968 and has grown from a small air charter and cargo service carrier to an international operator and the nation’s largest 135 cargo airline. Ameriflight is headquartered in Dallas, TX and has more than 500 employees including over 100 pilots and over 100 aircraft. Ameriflight provides feeder services for overnight express carriers such as UPS. The company can be found on the web at ameriflight.com and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter at @Ameriflight.

Perhaps this needs its own thread? Great news for AMF pilots

So what would the process for existing AMF pilots that did not enter the pilot pool through UPS's gateway program do to qualify for this agreement?

This looks like a formal extension of the exiting program of UPS pilot interns flying with AMF to me.

Hi, there!

This is separate from the UPS intern program. That'll still be a thing, but this is for pilots working here now and pilots that will be working here in the future (not through the intern gateway program).

When we finalize the details, there will be a number of benchmarks the pilot has to fulfill (like professional development, personal development, length with Ameriflight, etc.)

For current Ameriflight pilots, what they have done with us so far counts toward the program. So if they've been here for two years, that'll count toward the time requirement and if they have a certain number of hours with us that'll count toward the hour requirement and so on and so forth.

Hope that makes sense! :)

Thank you for providing all of the requirements.

I was a CFI/CFII but have not flown in some time. I am returning to aviation and just got check out for a 1st class medical and have my flight review/instrument schedule to be completed this month. My question is about how many current hours does Ameriflight require?

PIC 850
Multi 43
CC 223
Complex 93
Night 46

Seasonal positions!?
 
Hi there.

I'm interested in the seasonal positions that you have posted. I saw that it is for certain bases and for the PA31 and BE99 only. Are we able to choose which one of those aircraft and which of those bases? Or is it what and where needed? I've been looking for a seasonal job like this so I can keep a helicopter seasonal summer job.

Thanks.

collegedropout9 10-09-2017 05:07 AM

Anyone currently flying the BE99 for AMF that could share what the avionics package installed on the airplane is? Are all of the airplanes standard? I thought I saw a cockpit photo on The AMF Facebook page that showed a STEC 30 installed. It looked like a Garmin GPS was installed as well, but I could not make it out. Anyone flying in the home based program of 2/7/2/2? How do you like it? Do you have the opportunity to upgrade to the 1900 relatively soon. Any details you could share would be appreciated.

Thanks, CD9
