Default AmeriFlight's Lear 35s

Just sheer curiosity:

Does anybody know where Ameriflight's Lears are based and how many years a person needs to be with the company to operate one?

To my knowledge all the AMF's Lear's are based out of Burbank, CA. Right now they use 3 for bank work and the others are configured for PAX charter. AMF is trying to expand their PAX charter side, so right now they are hiring a few people for the that expansion. The people they do hire have alot of charter experience to help further their efforts.

The runs are going away because the bank runs they use them for are starting to process their checks electronically, so there is not as much of a demand for lears to race across the country in the middle of the night.

Ahh yes, Check 21 I think the new law is called.

I figured they would be using the lears for some other line of business by now. I guess that's why they're getting to into passenger transport, eh?
