Hi, there!

Unfortunately, we won't be.
We've gone the past few years and a had a great time, but I guess it just slipped under our radar this year!
I'm sorry about that. I'd be happy to hook you up with a recruiter if you'd like to ask some questions, though!

Not everything in every company is the same, and there are many different ways things are done totally LEGALLY from place to place.
I wouldn't call it "pretending", but often dated or second hand. He flew out of one of the worst bases ever (now closed), and for an annual pay as a training captain that's less than I make in bonuses alone.

One thing I will point out, Zippynh brings up 24 hour dispatch. Years ago AMF only required a check in, not the full release discussion required now.

Used to be you could put just about anyone in dispatch, it was more of an operations position, and under part 135 that was ok. Heck, I worked for another 135 op where we asked for a weather printout, and the "dispatcher" printed out a 7 day forcast from the local news.

Now days I see dispatchers getting a few weeks of mentoring, and they are much more familiar with situations that ground a flight. They are required to go over weather/notams, and review your fuel staus.

Question Metroliner Bonus Program Flyer

It looks like the Flyer for the Metroliner Bonus Program was taken down? Is this still a thing?

https://images.google.com/imgres?img...ce=sh%2Fx%2Fim


Also, I'm interested in the Home Based Captain and was wondering how they work the Salary for that. Is it the same as what's posted on APC or is it different because you are flying half as much.

Curious too what I'd likely be placed in with these times.


Total time:
6454
Inst:
378(272 act)
X-Country:
4009
PIC:
6190
Night:
374
Turbine:
570
ASEL:
3780
ASES:
2679
AMEL:
34
Alaska:
2000
135:
5000
Amphib:
236



Most of the 135 is VFR ASES, but I did fly IFR 135 freight years ago for Flight Express. About half the turbine time is TPE-331 the other half is PT6, all DHC3 floats.

I'd love to fly the metroliner as a home based captain but i figure the AMEL time might limit that.

Thanks in advance.

We have BE99, BE1900 and SA227 based in DFW. Unfortunately we haven't had E120 aircraft based in DFW for about 5 years.

Are you looking for a captain or FO spot?

Yeah, that's pretty low ME time to go straight to the metro. However, you could come in as a home based BE99 and then transition to the metro after you log a couple hundred hours of ME time.

Hi, there!

Yes, the $20,000 Metro bonus is still a thing. It also applies for BE1900 Captains, as well.

The salary is the same for Home-Based Captains. For Metro Captains, first year salary is $57,000 (does not include bonuses, per diem, etc.)

If your Multi-Engine is at 34 hours, you unfortunately wouldn't come in as a Metro. With your other hours being so high, we could likely get you that Home-Based position as a 99 and transition you to the Metro when you get 200 more hours of Multi.

Hope that helps!
