Freight dogs

Here are a couple:

1. Westair in Central California. Operates C-208s and feeds UPS, I believe.

2. Ameriflight in Burbank has been around forever, flying worn-out Lances and some decent aircraft as well.

3. Central Air Southwest, http://www.centralairsouthwest.com . Also has been around forever and flies Aero Commanders, a real classic airplane.

4. Mountain Air Cargo, http://216.189.73.74/index.cfm?Section=mas&Occurrence=20 , has also been around awhile.

5. Zantop International Airlines, http://www.flyzantop.com , is a real classic freight carrier. Operates L-188 Electras, which is a classic airplane. It may still operate DC-8s as well.

Hope that helps. Some cargo outfits are P-F-T, just so you know ahead of time.

PS-If you like Electras, this page, http://home.worldonline.dk/lai/elektra.html , has some great Electra pix. :D

Unfortunately, unless you can find a company that will hire a day VFR only pilot, you're gonna have to wait until you have Part 135 IFR mins before anyone will even look at you. When you do get the time, look up Ameriflight (www.ameriflight.com) in BUR... they are a good company and can get you turbine experience relatively quickly.

Dont forget about Kalitta Charters out of YIP next door to the Zantop guys. Great place. Strictly Lear operator now that the BE-18s have been phased out. Miss the mighty Beech.
