How many pilots are currently in the Flightpath program?

I don't know exact numbers, but quite a few. The first two to go directly from AMF to UPS under the program have class dates a couple weeks from now.

Two have just become First Officers at UPS Airlines.
We have 29 others in the program at various stages last I heard.

If interested in a position with Wiggins does Ameriflight handle the pilot recruiting or do they do their own? I am mostly interested in the position flying out of PVD.

Great question! Wiggins handles their own pilot recruiting. Applications/resumes go straight to them.
Here's a link to their careers page: Careers At Wiggins Airways
They currently have six open pilot positions. :)

29? Nice! I hope they all succeed in the program and get hired :)

ZED ticket prices
 
I know pilots with most larger airlines get to fly either free with their own airline, or at a significant discount with others. Do Ameriflight pilots get huge discounts on airfare also? Thanks

We can jump seat on our own flights if there is a seat available. Since we are an all cargo airline, that is usually in the right seat in the cockpit, if there is no FO on the flight. You can also

We also have jump seat agreements with numerous passenger airlines but that applies only to the pilot on a space available basis. We don't have any kind of deal for family to ride with.

Flying the C99 King Air
 
Friend will be starting soon on the C99 King Air (single Pilot I assume). Anyone have experience on that airplane? Easy/fun to fly?

How long typically before people transition to another type - a few years?

Can answer that last question for you.
It depends on what you come in with. If you come in at 1,200 TT, you can expect to upgrade in as early as 7-10 months. Internal upgrade from BE99 to BE1900 is at around 1,600 TT.
If you'd rather wait and upgrade to the SA227 instead of the 1900, it'll be just a bit longer as the internal upgrade is about 2,200 TT.

Hope that helps!
