We just bought a beautiful lake home not far from my parents (in their late 70s) and do not want to move. I have a local friend who commutes to Dallas to fly for American and another that flies for Omni Air. I understand being away from home for a week or so at a time is normal...

Flying for a major airline (or even a regional) is way different than AMF. Commuting for AMF really isn’t sustainable.

Is Ameriflight still hiring? Any homebased positions?

Yes, still hiring. Next class is April 13th. Then May 11th after that.
Unfortunately, we don't hire homebased anymore. Must live within 1.5 hours (driving distance) of a base.

Freight dogs. I have a friend interested in BE-99 captain positions in Omaha. It seems all positions are filled there currently, but would there be a way for him to get on a “list” for future openings?

Thanks

There's not an official list to be on for specific future openings. However, if he hasn't applied yet, I'd highly advise him to apply for the BE99 Captain nationwide position. That's the generic position that's default for "my location isn't open at the moment". If qualified and application is in, a recruiter will call him and discuss the location he wants. If it's not open and they aren't able to add an additional pilot there, the recruiter can keep him on their list for it.

Hope that helps!

Does anyone know when Ameriflight will be hiring first officers again? I sent my resume to a recruiter and got a reply within minutes that there were currently no first officer positions available. I figured as much with the current situation, but I had read they were stilling hiring on a couple different sites. Thought I’d give it a try.

Still hiring about 2-4 First Officers each month. (3 are slated for the April training class right now.) With that being said, we aren't able to open the position online as often due to the amount of applicants we already have and are working through. If you got an app in, awesome! Feel free to go in and update it as often as you'd like as you gain additional hours. That'll keep you on the radar.

I emailed my resume to Sarah Hankla, she replied with...”Unfortunately we do not have any FO openings at this time. Please keep in touch.”

I wasn’t quite sure if that meant my resume was in for any future considerations. Should I email her updated resumes as I get more hours, or wait until the FO application is available on the site.

Thanks for the reply

Keep updating. Keep your name in front of them.

What’s the best way to apply? Email? Airline Apps?
