Lears and Falcon 20's. I made 28,000 my first year, 48,000 the second year. I think the scedule is 5 on 2 off, 12 on 3 off or something like that. Upgrade varies, due to Sept 11. It used to average about a year or less. It is your typical cargo company. Perdiem is 24 dollars a day. You will spend a lot of time sitting on the road.

Is the mileage an either/or thing? My current company you get mileage or gaurantee, which ever is higher.

Also, do you share hotel rooms?

You don't share rooms. You get the salary regardless if you fly or not. You only get mileage if you fly the miles.

I have a friend that flys the Falcon for them and he says he sometimes spends about 19 days away from home. Just sitting in a hotel room waiting for dispatch to call with a trip. Would kinda make it hard on the family life.

You don't want to work at Cherry "Scary Air". I honestly don't know if they are hiring. You can call 1800-831-8603 and ask. That is the main line, I think the Chief pilots number is 972-739-0724 I think?????

Hei Kid (FLYCMI) don't waste your time w/Cherry Air. You will regret all your life. Use it only if you don't have other choice. I will give you a place to apply. Try this: www.google.com and after that type texas A&M (in college station). You will find a co-pilot postion available (requires 500 hours - I see you have that). It's part 91 and pays better. Good Luck and welcome to the inferno called aviation lovers.
