Thanks for insight, trying to see if I can make it worthwhile being central Florida based and not be away from home extended periods of time. 2 weeks seems like a lot.

Does Ameriflight have you sign a contract and if so how long? Also, are they still doing the accelerated captain program or have they filled that need already?

The only contract Ameriflight has is for the Accelerated Captain Program. All other positions (regular First Officer and regular Captains) do not have a contract.
Right now, they're not hiring ACPs as they are stocked up, but expect to hire a few more in early January.

Hope that helps!

Default Pilot Pathway Program Agreement with Atlas

Ameriflight's latest press release:

DALLAS, TX – Ameriflight has entered into a pilot pathway agreement with Atlas Air, Inc. and Southern Air, Inc., subsidiaries of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: AAWW), that guarantees Ameriflight pilots an interview with Atlas after as little as three years of service. The collaboration is intended to offer an outlined path under which pilots can gain unparalleled flying experience at Ameriflight and accumulate the experience needed to proceed to Atlas Air and Southern Air.

Atlas Air Worldwide is widely recognized as a leading global provider of outsourced Boeing 747, 777, 767, 757 and 737 aircraft and aviation operating services. With a focus on express, e-commerce and fast-growing markets, the company is in an era of significant growth and development, with opportunities to expand its cargo and passenger operations with existing customers and new ones.

The Pilot Pathway Program between Ameriflight, Atlas Air and Southern Air is open to qualified Ameriflight pilots. Participants will gain requisite experience fulfilling a number of benchmarks while at Ameriflight for 36 months, including Atlas’ ATP/CTP program, professional/career development programs and more. Successful completion of the program will afford for these Ameriflight pilots a guaranteed interview with Atlas Air and Southern Air subject to hiring needs and meeting all program and hiring requirements.

Under the program, a Pathway Pilot reaching the outlined benchmarks will be recommended for Atlas’ ATP/CTP program. Successful completion of the program and acceptance of employment will result in the pilot being placed in an aircraft class, such as the 747 with Atlas Air for higher-time pilots or the 737 with Southern Air for lower-time, new-hire pilots.

“Our partnership with Atlas Air and Southern Air provides an exceptional career advancement opportunity for our pilots,” says Ameriflight Chief Executive Officer Paul Chase. “We have made a commitment to our team and the industry that Ameriflight will be the nation’s top place for pilots to become professional, major-airline ready, aviators. This is why we choose to align ourselves with the world’s best companies, like Atlas Air Worldwide. ”

“We are pleased to form this special relationship with Ameriflight,” said Atlas Air President and Chief Operating Officer, John W. Dietrich. “Our business is growing, and our airlines are a great place to build a career. Innovative partnerships like this one help us ensure a solid pipeline of qualified candidates dedicated to a career in aviation, which is at the center of today’s modern global economy.”

How many hours are pilots getting on average per month? Looks like they have some awesome opportunities with their flow through programs!

Ameriflight has no flow programs.
Guaranteed interview is not a flow program.

Hi, there!

Ameriflight pilots average 60 flight hours per month (720 per year).

I have a few questions about the 120 FO positions. What are bases and what is the typical schedule like? What kind of hours can an FO expect per year?

Hi, there!

Here are the current bases for EMB120s: BFI, ONT, PDX, PHX, BQN, and SLC
Typical schedule is Monday through Friday, morning to evening. EMB120 FOs average a little less flight hours per year than our other pilots - about 40 per month, 500 per year.

Hope that helps!
