Has anyone leased an airplane from American Air Network and flown freight? I have heard that they do this, you base where you want, lease their airplane under their 135 certificate and bid on freight as you see fit from several different websites. If anyone could shed some light on this please let me know on the forum or pm me.

Thanks in advance!

If you get any info in reference to American Air network could you email with it? I am very interested in this.
I see they have a web site, but it is not up and running yet.
Thanks!

I think they are just a certificate holder with an airplane or two of their own. Owners piggyback on the AAN certificate (for a monthly fee, of course) so they don't have to go through the ordeal of getting their own. That's what I think they do there, anyway. That's what we did with ours, but with a different company in Florida.

To get hired there, you would have to find out who owns the aircraft and talk with them. You might be able to get AAN to let you know who's on the certificate.

That doesn't sound bad at all. Would like to run a BE90 or BE200 or Lear if they have anything like that I would be extremely interested.

Anyone familiar with Hallairways? Hallairways.com

I own an Aztec and was thinking of the possibilty of putting it under Hall or perhaps someone elses 135! Can this be done?

I have spoke to Joshua Hall a few times. He will email you all the particulars in reference to going on his certificate.
You will have to fly the Aztec down to Texas were it goes through the 135 inspection, and then the pilot will have to take a 135 check ride. I think he told me its about a 3 week time frame start to finish.

Kevin,

Thanks for the info.

Do you know if any maintenance that needs to be done can be done where I'm based or is Texas the designated locale?

Also, I'm curious about your 135. I've looked into possibly starting up my own but the paperwork seemed intense. I guess no pain no gain. How was your process?

Hall Airways

When I spoke to Joshua, I was under the impression that I would have to take the aircraft to Texas. I guess the main thing with certifing your aircraft is that the FAA requires the engines have had to been rebuilt within the last 12 years. My partner in my 135 is an A&P mechanic and he handled that end of it.

As far as the process we used a retired FAA guy who now does consulting in part 135. He worked for the same FSDO that handles our 135 operation, so it was pretty painless.
The process of getting a certificate is very paper intensive, and our guy had it down to a science, but you still need to know your papere work forward and backwards.

If you would like to know more about what my 135 is doing, feel free to email me direct at midwestair1@aol.com.
