BFI used to be the Ameriflight base and would be moved to Spokane during peak season due to the enormous amount of cargo just for Seattle area taking up all of the ramp space. During that time the BFI-BLI run still flew out of BFI. Now the Spokane is the Ameriflight base I would imagine the aircraft seen at BFI is either that BFI-BLI run or a schedule from the PDX base.

I haven’t worked there in over a decade, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

There's still a couple 99s and 1900s operating out of BFI, BLI is a 1900 run out of BFI. GEG is mainly a Brasilia base with a single 1900 I think.

The 99 at SEA is I believe a DHL run operating SEA-GEG M-F with potential to be called to fly Sat out of BFI.

All the bases up there get covered by PDX reserve if anything happens.

Yea, I haven't been there in a decade either and I can't imagine why anyone would go to AMF in 2023. It was a horrible place back then lol...

Well maybe you can help me. I'll be moving to the north east corner of the Seattle area and looking for a flying job. Any suggestions with my time below?

1600 Total time
1500 PIC
200 PIC Turbine (Single Engine)
1000 Tailwheel
500 Float
16 MEL
500 VFR Part 135 experience
(Hopefully 135 IFR minimums soon)

What is your end goal? Lots of right seat jet jobs for somebody like you, or work on getting ATP mins and go to a regional.

Other than seaplanes I'd rather go cargo over regional. I have no real IFR experience and would like to land a PIC IFR job if possible or work that direction for now. That's what seemed attractive about Ameriflight.

No end goal yet.

Atlas, ATI, and Skywest will look at your resume, and they all will let you get based in Seattle. With float time you can go work at Kenmore too.

Ok great to hear. Didn't mean to derail the Ameriflight thread here. I'll try and post in the Career section. Thanks for your reply.

Default Be99 moved posting

Anyone else starting Sept 11 on the BE99? Anyone know if any of those planes have autopilot? Or what the stacks look like. I'm brushing up hard on my IFR and the study materials but if there's any other suggestions or thoughts from someone's who's recently gone through the process, would appreciate your input.

Most have a wing leveler type of autopilot - which can be deferred - and GI275. Do everything you can to drill flying without a moving map, e.g. timeturnthrottletalk, as GPS can be deferred too! Your training will require it.
