All furloughs have been recalled, and interviewing has resumed for future Basic Indoc classes.

No, most of our Check Airman are not authorized to conduct initial type rides or issue ATP certificates. Plus, PA31, not a chance. You need to have two or three rides with the company, or get hired directly into a "typed" aircraft, before they will give you an ATP ride. It protects the company from someone using AMF to get their ATP and then bailing.

Further to Freightdog's comment, two of Ameriflight's check captains are ATP Designated Pilot Examiners and the company has access to a third. BE-99 captains with good records may be offered an ATP checkride in conjunction with a 6-month 135.293-297-299 ride, and captains transitioning to type-rated equipment will fly with ATP-type rating examiners.

Oakland vs Portland, which is better as far as QOL, Rent etc..... Do employees of AMF have a place to park their car at the airport?:)

Surface wx in the SFO-OAK bay area is often nicer but rent is expensive. Winter wx at PDX can be pretty awful but COL is less and a lot of people like the area.

You'll get plenty of priceless wx flying experience in either place -- maybe more in PDX.

Employee parking is provided at both the OAK and PDX hangars.

Ameriflight doesn't claim to have a magic key to the hiring door at SWA -- and particularly after flying a BE-99 for only a year -- although a number of SWA pilots are former Ameriflighters. Ditto numerous other major and regional airlines in the US and internationally. Some pilots have gone to corporate operators. Some have gotten out of the aviation business. We also have a surprising number of "lifers" -- pilots who have been with us for 20 or 25 years. A few have retired out of the company.

At the bottom line, it depends on what you want and how willing you are to pursue your goal.
