How about these scenarios;

Which individual would have better chances to end up at FedEx and which has better chances for Delta? Ameriflight or Regional?

Which individual would have better chances at Kalitta and which has better chances at Southwest? Aneriflight or Regional?

Not an Ameriflight guy, but have flown part 135 turboprops and currently 121 regional dude. The folks I have seen move on the quickest to legacy are 121 check airman. Not saying its not possible feom the other routes, just depends on who you know more and timing in my opinion. For stuff like ACMI I know folks that had left seat Part 135 turboprop time and no trouble going to Atlas etc

I wouldn’t sit around to wait for a potential job at a regional that could crater in a year. Take a good job that is offered. It’s 12 months. Sure you’d be hauling bees out of Visalia at 3am but it beats playing a 5th Skyrim playthrough in your mom’s basement.

Did you get offered a BE99 position at AMF?

For context, there’s movement starting to happen in the industry. With my quals almost meeting CA mins, I wanted to set myself up for success. I do have a CJO with a regional. Though they asked who’s still interested and said training department is spoiling, they don’t know when they would take in new hires. Trying to decide what would be beneficial is all.

We are in the same boat. I have my ATP mins and will most likely go with AMF. Send me a DM as I’m in SoFlo too

Short answer; Yes.

Any idea on time frame and what they will be flying? I’m local and considering a career change from a desk job. Thanks

Now, now...you have never seen my mom's basement.
