Does anyone have any info on the Cummins Diesel flight department based in Columbus, Indiana in terms of quality of life, schedules, number of pilots, salary range, upgrade times, general info like that? I'd really appreciate any insight, thanks in advance.

Generally speaking... They have 3 Hawker 800A's they acquired in 1994 new and they have just acquired a Dornier 328Jet to get back in to the corporate shuttle operations after selling the Saab 340A they had a couple years ago. They are in the process of hiring and I had heard they are looking for a minority candidate (I haven't verified this, but they are due for such a move)... They just had one pilot leave and I think their full-time head count is 12 with 2 contract pilots that they use regularly. They fly all of the a/c around 600 hrs./yr. They have a days off rotation that has varying degrees of reliability depending on what their staffing situation happens to be at any given time. Last I heard they were starting at 48K plus bennies while they have attempted to recruit new hire captains at higher wages (this hasn't worked out well).

Out of the pilot roster, all but 2 have been there roughly 4 yrs. or less.

This is the scoop, for better or worse. Still know people there. ;)

I think the first part makes the answer to the second part pretty obvious.... :(

They fly alot and pay below industry standard, but hey it is a job. Cummins is a very solid company though.

Has the pay improved in recent years? I have been hearing a lot of good things from some guys that live in the area. I live in Louisville but would move for the right gig

Warning...minor rant

Why do people reply to 2 year old threads rather than just post a new one? It really throws off those of us with diminished mental capacity.

Would you pick up on a conversation that ended 2 years ago out of the blue?

Good luck with your endeavors.

I was actually trying to figure out who recently left...thanks for saving me the embarassment of a phone call. Diminished capacity indeed!
