Default New FO

I have commercial multi/instrument: 720 TT; 575 PIC; 272 X-C PIC; 65 night; 125 Instrument; and 20 ME. What are my chances of getting a FO slot. And where would I likely be based? I would prefer St. Louis.
Thanks

St Louis probably won't happen as an FO. SUS is an SA227 only base and the FOs we hire don't fly in the metro. As for hiring period, you have the times for an E120 FO now (well, 5 hour short on ME -- See FreightDogs post above.) For our ACP (Accelerated Captain Program) you are about 80 hours short of the total time needed.

No an ATP is not required for any of our aircraft. However, once you get into type rated equipment, Ameriflight will provide your ATP/CTP. A little perk! No training contract.

Hi,

I'm looking at the FO Position for the EMB120 and had a couple questions.

I have 485 TT, 9.2 ME, 77 Instrument, 55 Night, 200 XC. Currently sitting around 350 PIC.

This might be obvious, but I am wondering how is it possible to have both 500TT and 500PIC? As I remember, you can't log PIC until you attain PPL. Am I missing something?

Also, what are the bases for the EMB120 and how often are there openings for this position?

Thanks!

Itís not possible to have both. The minimum should really state 500 PIC. Someone correct me if Iím wrong.

You are correct. These are the minimums. If you have 500PIC, you will have at least 500TT.

Hi,

You are correct. It's not actually possible to have 500 TT and 500 PIC at the same time. The 500 TT is a hard min. The 500 PIC is just a preferred min. So definitely need the 500 TT and as close as possible to the 500 PIC is preferred. Hope that makes sense!

Here are the bases that have EMB120 routes atm: BFI, ONT, PDX, PHX, BQN, and SLC

We see openings every two or so months. In fact, three of the pilots in our December training class are going to be EMB120 FOs.

Hope that helps!

Do those openings come up on the website? I've been looking at the openings for a while and haven't seen anything but Captain openings.

They do come up on the website, but get filled so quickly they're easy to miss.

Hi,


I have all the part 135 PIC minimums met, however I only have 25 hours of multi. Feeling very reluctant to go to regionals. What are my chances of making PIC at ameriflight?
