In addition, they want you to have leadership training and volunteer service. They'll also give you some reading assignments.
Let me guess, they also want a 4 year degree?

Not a requirement, but of course they'd like to see one.

They would still likely come into the ACP program to get the hours to 135 minimums. For our restricted captains, you still need 50 hours minimum in the aircraft before moving to the left seat.

How does 600 total time and only a few ME hours work for getting hired?

Your TT would have you qualified for an EMB120 First Officer position.
Here's the full list of flight hours required to be hired on for one of those positions:
500 TT, 25 ME, 100 XC (defined as point to point), 25 night, 500 PIC, 75 instrument


Hope that helps!

Well im 40 now, about to retire in four more years from my current career, and want to look at flying freight one day. Im asel amel with inst at 150 hrs and working toward my comm and cfi. I decided to buy a 172 and will soon be racking up the next 100 hours to get ready. My instructor back in 2000 told me about Ameriflight and ive been wanting to meet the requirements and apply since. I am also hoping to fly out of CVG IF im lucky enough to get hired. Any pointers from people who have made it and pointers for getting a spot at CVG? I know its a bit premature to ask with four years left until retirement but why not ask and see, right?

I went to ATP back in 2002 for my multi add on. Disappointed they dont have a cfi program now except for the full on atp program.

Would the low ME time matter? I have all he other requirements. Also, what are the chances of being PHX based?

You probably won't be able to start directly in CVG. Currently the only planes operating out of CVG are BE1900 and SA227, both which require type ratings and roughly 1600-2000 hour TT and 750 ME minimum to get into. So you would either need to get the time some other way or start in the BE99 or right seat in the E120 at another base with us. But as a goal, it is definitely doable.

Ameriflight isn't really hard up for pilots, I have a lot of hours and they declined to hire me. Not sure exactly why, but I think it was because I wasn't current. Now I'm current IFR 135 in a twin, so don't need a job. I wish them the best though!
