Flight Instructor Position
 
I remember several pilots really wanting to be based at DFW. Pretty popular base for us!
Figured I'd give an update on that base. We currently have these Captain positions open: BE99, BE1900, and SA227 (one opening for each aircraft)
Also, a new thing for us, we have an Air Transport Flight Instructor position open. This would be great for current flight instructors!

Link to the position: Air Transport Flight Instructor - Careers At Ameriflight, LLC

Some details:
• Captain pay + extra $$ while instructing
• FAR 135 IFR Captain mins preferred, less will be considered
• You'd either be in the BE99 or BE1900 training program - whichever you most qualify for
• From there, you can become a Check Airman, advance within Flight Department Manager, or transition to the line

EMB-120 Takeoff Trim
 
I am a virtual airline pilot and just downloaded IMHO one of the best as well as an up to date sim of the Embraer EMB-120 Brasilia by Carenado. Can any of you real pilots of the 120 have a t/o chart for trim settings by weight or is there one universal setting? Thanks for taking the time for someone who likes to do it "by the book" I used to have the real manual from ESSCO that I paid $100 for back when I was not retired but had income to spend on my hobby. It got lost moving to a little retirement mod' home in NC from Chicago. Used to fly the E120's when they flew from SFO to FAT where my sister and her family still live.

Here's a digital AFM I found with a Google search.

Nvm my bad. This link is to an APM (airport planning manual) not and AFM. Need to get my prescription checked apparently.

What kind of “FTD” are you using for the Indoc sim eval? Is it still a Frasca? Thought I saw somewhere you maybe had a Redbird now.

Is it set up like a light piston twin, a 99, or something else?

Just wondering what to expect.

Thx

We have a Redbird set up as a light twin and an old BE99 sim.

BE99s and Metros are operated out of our BUF base.

Sounds great, am I able to apply for the ACP right now, or do I have to wait for the position to be posted? I plan on instructing until January to finish up some students.

I'd say wait a little. Our January training class would start on the 6th, which might be a little too soon. Our February training class would start on the 3rd, possibly a better fit. If that's the case, wait until late December to apply.
Also, if you're close to Captain mins and flying quite a bit, I'd advise to just get those extra hours in order to avoid two training events.
BE99 Captain mins for reference: 1,200 TT, 50 ME, 500 XC (defined as point to point), 100 night, 500 PIC, 75 instrument
