So from what I understand from your reply you have to put in an application? Can people be rejected from the program when they apply and if so for what reasons? Also if you complete the program do you get a guaranteed job with UPS or a guaranteed interview? I'm asking because my ultimate goal is to work for UPS and I think Ameriflight would be a great first job to get there.

The person who drops off or picks up the cargo (our customer) loads and unloads the plane.
Don't suppose there's going to be any new bases opening in the near future, is there? Thanks.

Typically, how many hours a month are home based captains flying?

Yes, you have to put in an application. It's for paperwork purposes to kick off the program. After that, leaders from AMF will decide if you should be placed in it. To be in the program, you have to be in good standing with AMF - so not too many sick calls, not too many write ups, not too many training failures, etc.
Formally, it's a guaranteed interview. During the program, you have to meet a series of benchmarks - leadership, personal, professional, etc. Those are outlined for you and you'll have to lead it. Your 12 month mentorship (where you'll have a UPS Captain mentor and be immersed in the UPS culture) and jet transition course is also a big part. If you get through the program, you have a guaranteed interview. Formally, that's all we can guarantee, but looking at everything that goes into it, it's your job to lose. To give you a little more comfort, you'll be connected with UPS the whole time, so it isn't likely that you'll suddenly become undesirable.

No solid plans at the moment, but we do have Home-Based Captain positions!

Hi, there!

It depends on which routes you are on, of course. Our non-pilots, typically fly 60 hours per month. With the extra time off, Home-Based Captains could probably expect to average 40 flight hours per month.

"not too many write ups" Do you mean airplane write ups or disciplinary employee write ups? You should be crystal clear on that.

What routes do the EMB-120's fly and how long are the flight on average? I'm a CFI looking to get into ameriflight as an FO on the 120 but I've heard you can't log SIC time in the 120. If thats the case I may have to wait and apply for accelerated captain.

If you want to be logging the time quicker, the 120 is the route to go. E120 FO time is loggable for everything since the 120 is certified to require two pilots. The Accelerated Captain Program (ACP) pilots are NOT able to log their FO time for things like ATP or other ratings since the BE99 does not require an SIC. It is loggable toward total time to meet part 135 times (TT, CC, Nt, Inst.)
