This is true ^. I got hired at AMF with a little over the 135 mins and 100 multi with no internal recs.

Luv2rotate,

I'm working from memory, but my hours are pretty close. Ameriflight has the exact hours. By the way, I got the multi in 7.5 hours. I had an exceptional instructor.

I'm just checking because if thats what you have in your resume they maybe wondering the same. :confused:

Speaking only for myself, but I got my PPL with about 25 hours dual (I happily flew solo after being legally endorsed). ATP got me my PPMEL with about 7.5 in dual so out of my low 2500 or so hours the majority (like 2450+) are PIC. But I've only worked in Part 91 & 135.

Ahh never did the ATP gig. I unfortunately went the ERAU route and ended up with a TON of loans. Uggggggh, you ATP guys are ahead of the curve! :(

Not sure why CFllight hasnt been called? Maybe they just pick 1/10 resumes.

I'm not sure about that. The ATPers have/had at least 40K into that deal. Granted it isn't as much as riddle but isn't this like comparing which 150 would be better to fly through a thunderstorm?

No debt
 
I did my training all part 61 over a few years with no debt. Not ATP flight school, no Riddle. Never planned on flying professionally; it just happened :). Flying is a second career for me. All my flying has been part 61 and 135, and all on aircraft 12,500 mgtow or smaller, so most of it is PIC.

possible interview
 
i have an interview in the next couple of weeks in CVG. Did any current ameriflighters interview there or know anything about the sim there ect? thanks for the info!

For the sim, know how to fly part A. DME arcs, NDB approaches and VOR approaches. Know how to get into holds. The more you know, the more prepared you are.

As for OAK, just know your regs. Know what you can and can't do and that will be honored. It is single pilot IFR so keeping your head in the game will keep you safe.

I'm currently doing single pilot IFR in a 310 and loving every minute of it. I'd like to look into Ameriflight a little more, seems like it would be my cup of tea. Just sent my resume so I guess I'll find out soon enough anyway, just thought I'd see if anyone was getting on as an SIC right now.

Pay for play? Don't do it, you will hate yourself in the morning.

I agree.

The only SIC position we have is for the Brasilia, and there are currently no openings. your only chance would be to "pay for play" and when you only need 100 hours its definitely not worth it. Just build the extra 100 hours and apply then.
