Any idea what’s going on with the openings posted for EYW and/or MIA.? They’ve been posted several times on the orange site and I applied through there and AMF’s portal.

We have had a few folks hired for these positions that didn't make it through training. We are also looking to increase the number of runs out of the MIA base. So keep trying.

Late summer likely. Currently, all our BE99 Captain positions are filled.
We have a lot of new applicants, but if you haven't applied yet, please do. That'll at least get your application in front of the recruiters. They go through applications they already have before posting the position externally.
And keep an eye out at www.ameriflight.com/careers for openings. Things change often as we grow and our pilots transition to larger aircraft.

As for PR, you'd have a good chance of getting it. We have a handful of BE99 routes there and lots of opportunity for movement. Don't worry, you'll agree upon your location before signing your offer letter - no surprise moves!

How do you have “movement” if nobody is hiring?

What are you doing all that time at the outstation? Are you at a hotel, are you sitting around at the airport?

If it’s a hotel, what kind of places do they put you up in? Close to amenities, food, time to work out?

Curious how most pilots spend their time at work during the day when not flying.

Thanks.
Timing will depend on base/run/type, but you typically get a hotel and transportation. Hotels are all decent, pool and/or exercise room. Earn points at most. I usually catnap and read but younger guys may find more to do with time. Some locations adjacent to parks, libraries, etc.

I'm looking at coming to Ameriflight as an fo this fall (assuming they're even hiring then) and was wondering how much flexibility there was in fo flight minimums. I fly aerial survey in a piston twin and exceed the listed requirements except for night and instrument. I've got 24 night and a little over 50 instrument. I can get that last night hour easily enough, but it's going to be very difficult for me to grab another 25 hours instrument. Is there any chance that some wiggle room can be granted or do I need to figure out something on my own?

I threw in an app for the SA227 despite not meeting the mins because of that "would you be interested in other positions" question at the beginning. Any idea what flexibility might be available for my qualifications?
~1700TT
A little over 800 PIC and the same for SIC
Everything else met.
ERJ170 type, CE-560XL and CE-500 SIC types

You only flew 200 hours at a regional?

A little over 800 PIC and the same for SIC ERJ170 type, CE-560XL and CE-500 SIC

You had an excel type and ce 500 type that covers 7 airframes with only 700tt? wow...
