I suppose I should have said "realistically" instead of expected. I read anecdotally AMF can drag their feet with ATP CTP and other training events.

2 questions
-Is commuting an option with Ameriflight?
-Is Amerflight firm on their minimum hours?

PIC Minimums are firm based on FAR 135.243(c).
SIC Minimums are what the company desires but could change based on supply/demand of pilots.

The first intern to complete and return to UPS is leaving AMF in the next week. He was here just shy of 4 years.

The earliest to come here in the program will probably have a class date in the next month or so and has been with us right at 4 years this month.

YMMV when it comes to this. Interns that leave UPS with 500 hours will take a while to check the boxes. Interns that leave with captains mins may be able to shorten this timeline. One of the big hurdles (though not the only one) is getting out of the right seat. Eliminate that and you're well on your way.
