    Cargo Flying in Africa

    I lived and flew a widebody in Africa to a lesser known destinations for a few years, and as was said above, have a good sense of humor. Everything has it's own time, some might take days or never happen at all. Get all your shots updated, drink bottle water or beer. No ice or salad (washed...

    US Military Cargo Outsourcing..Unbelievable!!!

    There's always an exception to the rules. We have flown our whales into Afghanistan for a few years now but the Stated department did not allow our whales into Iraq until a few months ago. Yes, shoulda dot my tees and crossed my iis. As far as I know, Volga-Dnepr is the operator for the 124s...

    US Military Cargo Outsourcing..Unbelievable!!!

    Furloughs at Kalitta Air

    First furlough for Kalitta since Connie restarted the company back in Nov. 2000. After 8 years of growth and expansions and now this. My prayers to all whose names are on the furlough list. What a way to ring in the holidays. Tough times ahead for all.

    Kalitta questions...

    Timing is everything. Like I mentioned on the other thread, a few years back we were hiring turbo-prop guys with 3000 hrs. Now we have a surplus of widebody drivers (ATA, Focus, Cargo 360 and folks that have jumped ship from Evergreen, Polar etc.) with lots of hours including PIC...

    Southern Air

    Heard that there will be no more new hire class for the rest of the year at K4 due to training (IOE) backlog. And yes, the mins have gone up, buyers market. A few years ago, we were getting guys right off B-1900 with 3000 hrs. It's all timing I suppose.

    Joe will recover a lot faster if the hospital replace the IV with Diet Coke instead. God speed my friend.
