I know the 99 has a ton of routes out of slc, I was wondering what lines are JR and what lines are SR?

Thank you in advance ����

Thank you in advance 👍🏻

Sadly, not as many 99 routes (AMF SLC) as there used to be. There is PUC-VEL, ELY-WMC, BYI-SUN, and RXE (which is a spare airplane that could go anywhere it is needed to cover excess volume). Sometimes RKS is covered by a BE99.

Recent schedules have the BE99 pilots flying a mix of routes throughout the week, whereas the type rated pilots are more likely to stick with the same route throughout the week. There has been a lot of movement, so seniority and upgrades can come quick. There were openings on all 3 type rated aircraft this last bid period.

Hope that helps. Congrats, and see you around.

So, you're the reason the BE99 SLC job disappeared. Oh, well. I'm sure another will open up soon enough. Congrats!

Thanks again for the info. That mix of BE99 routes actually sounds appealing to me, rather than flying the same thing day in and day out.

Itís does! Thanks for the reply.

Are you based out of SLC?

Seems like the schedules company wide are not commutable? Maybe Iím missing something? I was looking at the 120 FO position and it seems like I would have to relocate from south Florida or get a crash pad to be able to do accept that position when the time came. Any truth to this?
