If they successfully complete the program, they are guaranteed an interview with the "regional" component of KAL.

The other FOs are a response to the pilot shortage. Pilots who reach our minimums (see past posts for the numbers) are hired on to fly right seat in our aircraft. Our Ops Specs allow them to log time in our aircraft that are rated for single pilot ops. Once they have gained sufficient experience, they are trained into the left seat of our BE99 aircraft as either VFR captains, Restricted IFR captains or Unrestricted IFR captains.
Are you referring to the Ameriflight program at Epic Flight Academy? I'm interested in doing that, especially since Ameriflight reimburses up to $60,000 of the training costs after 3 years through an agreement with them essentially making flight training free. The only problem is they don't really work with any lenders for those of us that need to finance it. Do you know if Ameriflight has any plans to sponsor flight training in the future instead of the reimbursement? I know having that happen is probably a pipe dream, but figured I'd ask. Thanks!

The program with Epic is through their in-house financing. I haven't heard any specifics of other flight training but I believe we are looking at similar programs with other flight schools. I have no specifics however.

Hey Freight Dog/Former Buff (?) Driver,

What is the outlook for EMB120 SJU FO openings? I already live in PR and I am interested in sticking around for a few years. Assuming you count helicopter time, I should be at your mins by the end of the year. Are you hiring FO's at the minimum time or do I need something else to be competitive?

Thanks in advance!

There will definitely be openings at some point in the near future. Two of our current three FOs in BQN will be moving to the BE99 within the next month or two. I don't know what the word is on replacements for them, but there will always be new openings.

I don't know how rotor time comes into play. Our recruiting dept can give you a better answer on that.

BTW, the BUFF part of my name is because I flew B52s (also known as the BUFF) for the Air Force several years ago.

Thanks for the info! I'll try to reach a recruiter.

Oh, the recruiter failed to mention in-house financing and so did their website. I'll have to ask about that. Thanks for the heads up.

I think Epic makes the reimbursement after 3yrs. Not Ameriflight.

Actually, the way the program is set up, Epic provides the financing for the pilot's training. Once the pilot reaches IFR mins and comes to Ameriflight, there are three benchmarks they have to meet. (I'm not going to name them because I might be wrong on one or two.) When the pilot reaches the benchmark, AMF pays back Epic for 1/3 of the loan. The money never actually passes through the pilot's hands. Unless they don't meet all of the benchmarks at AMF, at which point they are on the hook to Epic for the remainder of the loan.
