With it being a start-up it's probably a bit of a risk but I would be living somewhere other than Ohio, so it seems like an acceptable risk to me.

This part of their website made me chuckle:
Quote:
--Join the ranks of some of the
finest trained pilots in the industry.
That is a hefty statement, especially when the CA require:
Quote:
CAPTAINS: Required
-Commercial Pilot
-Instrument Rating

-FAR135 minimums
-1500 TT
and FOs require:
Quote:
First Officers: Required
-Commercial Pilot
-Instrument Rating
-250TT
I just find it hard to be considered among the "finest trained pilots in the industry" with around 250-500 (preferred) total time in an airplane.

Got to love advertising!

Btw - would love to fly the airplane!

Current mins posted on the website are ATP/2000 preferred CA and 500 FO. Maybe they went up recently? Anyone here anything from them?

Also, it says "Launching 2012" on their website; somewhat vague, and 2012 is quickly coming to an end. If anyone has heard anything, did they give you a date to expect operations to begin?

I read on one of their social media sites that they are looking at the later part of 2012 for start up.

If their Ops Specs require the SIC, then yes. If it says they are approved for single pilot, and everything is working, then no.

Your next job interview, assuming you leave before you upgrade, will probably question that time and might not count it.

Yes provided they train FOs and have them complete a 135 checkride.

Even with A/P in Lieu of SIC you can still log SIC if everything is still working, provided you have a current 135 check. With that ops spec the only time an SIC is required for dispatch is when the A/P is INOP. But they can always dispatch with a SIC and a functioning A/P they just don't have to.
