Nearly everything is Adhoc and time sensitive.

That is assuming that the base stays open.

So a new hire is most likely to be based on the west coast?

Yes.

BTW...if you come here, and get a base/equipment assignment that you want, be sure that before you come to class you get that base/equipment assignment in the form of a written offer of employment. They are going to fuss, but they need pilots bad and the will make a committment if you are politely insistant.

So a new hire is not likely to get CVG....what about SLC?

CVG is mostly a Metro base that does ad-hoc work. 3 weeks on, 1 week off. SLC is open for new hires, if you can get the 99. You'll need 1500 TT and some Multi PIC for that. Metro/1900 require 2500 TT, 750 Turbine PIC.

Make sure you bring plenty of copies of your resume/customer service mission statement to hand out to everyone.

If you thought the systems were hard on the CRJ, you're in for a rude awakening with the EMB-120...

Default Fly a Twin Otter

Another option to build PIC Turbine time quick is to get a job flying a Twin Otter for Grand Canyon Airlines. They are hiring First Officers and Captains. Minimums are fairly low with only a multi-engine rating required for F/Os. Bases are Las Vegas and Grand Canyon. Not a bad gig since you get 135 crew experience, multi-turbine time and a fast upgrade that has been about 7-8 months with your ATP and 500 hrs in type.

Default Go for AMF

They will hire you right into a BE99 in Billings MT and the flying is great. It is very chalangeing sometimes but the time you get is what the airlines look for. I have been a pilot for them for 4.5 months and I am going to 1900 school on the 17th. Our ACP went right to Continental from here. Forget the schedule and face the reality. If you want to have a long term career that will give you the kind of lifestyle that you are looking for you have to pay a price. Pay it now and reap the rewards later. By the way, AMF is a great place to work.

OK I am employed by the company I hope to end my career flying for. I have been with them for 12 yrs in other capacities. The problem is I need 1000 TWIN TURBINE hours. I'll be 38 b4 I am eligible to be hired by Ameriflight is it a wise choice with a wife and two kids? Decent family time?
