The second batch of interns had anyone who had the time to go to a regional leave. They all visited ameriflight and basically were told,"forget what UPS told you will be here for at least several years building competitive time, so suck it up." They were treated like crap by AMF and voted with their feet. UPS won't bring in any higher time peeps now because they can and do walk when the promises don't match reality. If you are low time and don't have a CFI this might not be a bad gig. But, you will still have to go somewhere to get "competitive time". Read the fine print carefully if you want to deal with this devil.

What does the feeder world look like for UPS in a few years when the entry level airplanes at places like AMF are not getting flown due to lack of a pilot? Is this program trying to correct for that? I donít think it could keep up. Maybe the pay will be that good, and someone will be happy to fly a metro around?
