i have heard of floaters getting lucky and getting it right out of training, as for the regular runs, not going to happen.

If you get hired and LCK is not open don't let it get you down. I'd say within 6 months of being hired you'll be based in LCK. The nice thing is we don't have base locks anymore, so in theory you could get assigned BHM (not open this week; check back next week) and drive down there with a mattress attached to your car, live there for a month, then drive right back up to LCK if its open and you're awarded the bid. (holy run on sentence batman!)
I've been here just over 3 years and have yet to get to fly out of the same state I live in FWIW.

Airnet

I'm sitting around 600 and 100. Does airnet still do the first officer program and hire with those mins or do they want the higher time guys around 1000 or so hours. I know its not real high time but its higher than mine... everything is realtive.

Also what is the likely hood of being base in TEB as a new guy, since I would LOVE to move back to NJ.


Thanks in advance!

Put in your app and keep it updated. Not sure how much longer the SIC program will be going, but it's still going right now. As far as TEB, PLEASE get here soon so you can take 143 or 145. I am a LCK floater and "live" in TEB right now. We can't get anybody that wants that place.

How long does it take to drive from CMH to LCK? I'm looking to bid CMH as a base for Shuttle America and from time to time might be in a position to beg a ride out of LCK on airnet. Any idea what cab fare might run between those airports?

About a 25 minute ride. Cab fares I've been told are around $50 each way. You might be able to get a hotel shuttle to get you to/from cheaper.

How does Airnet view Helicopter time?

As long as your flight time (total time) meets the needs of 135.243 it shouldn't be a problem. They might like to see some recent ME time, though!
