Do the pilots physically load and unload the cargo?

Hi, there!

Ameriflight has a Gateway Program with UPS Airlines and Flow Through Programs with Allegiant, Omni Air, and Frontier.
The programs are specific and applicant driven. Once you start working for AMF, you can apply to be in one of our programs.
For UPS, during the first 24 months, you'll be working to meet specific personal and professional benchmarks (like flight hours, leadership positions, and more). The last 12 months will include a mentorship with a UPS pilot and a jet transition course.
The other three programs are less stringent than UPS and similar to each other. You'll need to reach a certain number of benchmarks (time with us and flight hours).

Hope that helps!

If there's no bases in TX then there's no point in me applying for it though. We're moving to the Dallas area in June.
Hi, there!

I don't see that at the moment on our careers site, but it was likely supposed to be multiple locations nationwide (the site forces us to pick a state, so we choose Texas as it is where our headquarters is located).
The PIC can be slightly under that 500, especially if you can compensate in other areas (like ME or Instrument).
Depending on your TT, you might be interested in our Accelerated Captain Program.

Hope that helps!

What could I expect as far as a weekly schedule goes?

Thanks for any clarifying info
Hi, there!

With your ME and lack of Turbine, we'd consider you for a BE99 Captain position.
BE99 Captain: 1,200 TT, 150 ME, 500 XC (defined as point to point), 100 night, 500 PIC, 75 instrument

Transitioning up to a BE1900 wouldn't take you too long. It would just be a matter of getting those additional hours.
BE1900 Captain: 1,800 TT, 250 ME, 500 XC (defined as point to point), 100 night, 1,000 PIC, 100 instrument, 100 Turbine, 121 or 135 experience

Here's a link to apply for a BE99 Captain position at BFI (about 9 miles from SEA airport): Captain Beech 99 Cargo Pilot - Careers At Ameriflight, LLC

Our typical schedule is Monday through Friday, morning to evening.

Hope that helps!

No worries, EMB120 FO hours do count toward your ATP!

BE99 FO hours do not since a First Officer is not required in that aircraft. FOs in that aircraft are involved in the Accelerated Captain Program.

Hope that helps!

Nope, the pilots do not load or unload the cargo.They used to, but we changed that last year.
The person who drops off or picks up the cargo (our customer) loads and unloads the plane.

There are a couple of runs where we still have to move the freight to the door. This is primarily on the "glow flights" where it will only be few boxes (at about 50 lbs each.) The contract couriers take the boxes from the door to their trucks.

For UPS, FedEx and DHL the customer does provide the man power to unload the aircraft.

I remember the days of loading and offloading 3400 lbs. of cargo from a BE99 back in the 1980's. Glad to hear it has changed.
