You CAN log SIC time in the EMB120, because we are required to have an FO in that aircraft. No worries on that end.
We have EMB120 routes flying out of BFI, ONT, PDX, PHX, BQN, and SLC.

Looking at a few of the routes now, it looks like they vary in flight hours per month. I see a few 40s per month, 45s per month, and 50s per month. Hopefully, that gives you an idea!

It is loggable toward total time to meet part 135 times (TT, CC, Nt, Inst.)
Ah, thanks that answers my main concern. I'm a young guy just trying to get to the regionals by the time I turn 21 and i've heard AMF was good but then heard you couldn't log SIC on the bro. As long as I get to fly my brains out i'll be a happy man.

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.
So the main requirement is to be in good standing with Ameriflight which leads me to the ask is there a certain amount of time you need to be employed before you can apply?

Yes, correct. That's the main requirement to get into the program. But of course once you are in, there's a list of benchmarks you must meet to successfully complete it.

Once you are employed with us, you can put your resume/name in the hat after you complete training (about 6 weeks).

Looks like an Ameriflight BE-99 went off the runway in Hastings, NE early this morning. Great news is Pilot and copilot are OK with NO injuries.

Hello. Is there a recruiter I can get in touch with? I was considering applying at the end of summer when I reach BE99 captain minimums, but I'm thinking of applying earlier since I'm already at the ACP mins. Thank you.
