Within weeks, Wiggins will just be AMF. Wiggins will not operate on their own anymore after loosing their FedEx contract. Lots of unknown details of how things will change for their current operation. But there are now about a dozen more be99s in the NE and even more caravans in the Ameriflight fleet. I believe most BE99s out there are MHT based and assume you’ll be able to bid for those in the near future.

Those Caravans are going to Mountain Air Cargo and CSA. Fedex lease them to the feeders, lease are terminated to Wiggins. AMFlight won't/can't operate them.

Is this related to the 2 recent crashes with Wiggins 99?

My understanding is it is about FedEx doing a restructer of their feeder network and cutting back on the number of operators.

Neither Wiggins crash has involved a FedEx aircraft.

But the 99's and the 208's were on the same certificate, right? Perhaps there are rumblings of a suspension, and FedEx decided to cut their losses and get out.

My understanding is Wiggin's training record wasn't well kept to Fedex standards, hapened twice. Since they didn't want to comply, Fedex terminated their contract.

I was also told that one of their ex pilot who moved on to another feeder, says they didn't want to pay them till the last day of the contract. Fedex found out about this and force them to pay their pilots till the last day; they had already receive the advance sum.

Yep, sounds like Wiggins.

Default Training pay

Can anyone elaborate on the actual monthly gross pay while on training. According to APC it's 12.88 an hour. If monthly pay is 72 hours of pay then that's only about $1000 a month. Is that pay all the way through the end of OE? Also, does anyone know what the schedules and equpment are out of Lansing or Puerto rico?

Thanks

Monthly pay is not 72 hours. You get 8 hours per day, so 40 hrs per week. ~160 hrs a month. Plus $35 daily per diem while in training. You maintain that pay until OE is complete, then you lose the per diem but get your hourly pay bump.

Lansing is typically six days a week. It's not atypical to be out around 5am and back by 9pm. Long days. Some runs are out and backs. Look at Flight Aware app if you want to see the schedule.
