Default Quick question

Iím at 731 hrs tt and Iím trying to get into the accelerated captain program. Iíve been in contact with a recruiter and I was told that at 750 tt I could get a conditional letter of employment and at 800 I would be able to start in the next class. I have over 400 hrs of multi and I meet all of the other time requirements. My question is do I have to make it to the full 800 tt to get into training or if somewhere between 750 and 800 is acceptable?

FreightDogs could give you a more definitive answer. But I would say, if you want to come on as an E120 FO, then 750 would probably work. But then you won't upgrade to captain until 1200 hours. If you keep at it and get to 800 and come into the ACP program, then you could move to a Restricted Captain at 1000 TT, moving to Unrestricted IFR
Captain at 1200. So you would be logging PIC time 200 hours sooner.

Does Ameriflight do any pilot interviews during the WAI conference?

Hi Freight Dogs,
Can you connect me with one (or more) of your pilots that has gone through a sim ride?
Thanks in advance,

Are you talking about an interview sim? We haven't done those for quite a while. If you are offered a position, you will do one during indoc to assess you abilities and get ready for MEICC. That is the instrument course we put everyone through the second week if they pass the indoc test.

If you want to prepare, it is basic non-GPS instrument proficiency. We want to see if you can get the airplane from point A to point B in instrument conditions without following a purple line on a screen.

Highly interested in Ameriflight. Reaching BE99 Captain mins.
Currently live in FL and moving is not an option. What would my commute and quality of life look like? Starting a family and buying a house just want to have a life outside of work. What are the chances of getting a base in PR starting off and commuting to base?

Thanks for any input.

Typically how much extra flying is available outside normal lines, and does AMF allow pilots to flight instruct on the side?

Getting based in PR would likely not be a problem. Commuting might be the sticking point in that the SJU runs (that is where the 99 runs operate out of) operate Monday morning to Friday evening. Meaning you would need to jump seat in on Sunday afternoon/evening and back home on Saturday morning. Not a lot of home time.

A better suggestion would be to check with the recruiters about being a Home Based Captain. HBCs operate on a 2 week on/2 off/2 on/1 off schedule. AMF gets you a positive space ticket to get to your assignment as well as a hotel and per diem.
