I know this is probably not as common as it was a few years ago, but does anyone know of any regional (big or small) hiring street captains? I'd be commuting out of the Pacific NW so I'm mainly interested in anything west of or in Denver, but would be interested in hearing what's out there, no matter the location. I've heard Great Lakes and Island Air might be, but beyond that nothing. If so, is it possible to get/hold a line, and what is pay like?
Also, has anyone had any experience doing this? Does it work for or against you in the long run. Just wondering--thanks for any help anyone can give.

I understand that Island Air in Hawaii is, however, I am not sure of any details. From what I hear it requires alot of experience and flight times to get hired as a street captain.

Great Lakes doesn't hire street captains anymore. The company said it was not nearly as cost effective as they had hoped, and besides, with the lack of attrition and that fact we are stacked on captains, the time to upgrade has slowed significantly...Sorry!

Hi!

USA Jet Airlines either will be hiring street captains soon, or they have preference for them so they can upgrade quickly if needed.

They are currenly only hiring into the Falcon-20s now (also have DC-9s), and have been interviewing people with a # of jet pic time and some with Falcon 20 time and/or type rating.

Cargo, near DTW.

Dignan,

I think Island Air still may be looking at street captains, but be aware that failure rate is VERY high, and most people end up either as FO's or wash out of street captain gig.


Good luck

The manual says 2500TT and 750. I woulud imagine you'd have to have some turbine experience which you obviously do...

ATPCliff, I am curious about where you get your information since you just joined the company about a week ago. I have not heard such a rumor. There are 14 fo's waiting to upgrade, and many far surpass the qualifications. The company doesn't have to look far for people who are ready to upgrade. I hope they don't plan to bypass those who have been working hard for them all this time. Certainly this can't be true.
