I wanted to know if anyone had any info on Empire Airlines: What they have been recently hiring at, what aircraft they are hiring into, do you leave the right seat of the ATR or F27 into the caravan and then into the left seat of the ATR or F27, what the pay is for FO's, and what the schedule is like.

we are currently hiring into both the f and atr. i know we are looking for street captians in the f. you do not go over to the caravan then back into the 121 world. usually people stay on one side.the schedule is different for every base most are out and back during the day very easy schedule. then some are mostly at night and hard schedule. you get hired for the base that needs somone, then can bid into another base but right now they are not allowing people to switch planes so pick a good one. you also can not get bumped out of a base on senority. the changeing of bases is based on senority only if there is an opening or new base which we have been opeining and probably will continue for a while. a lot of stuff still going on with expansion and fedex plans on more hopefully. good time to get in as the market opens opportunity for quick advancement. competitive time are >2000 tt 500 multi and recency is a must. also help if you have experience in diffucult terrain or challenging aiports.

Is Empire even hiring right now. I've submited my resume, and got the ever so friendly "thank you for applying" letter. Who do yo gotta "inflate" to get a job round here anyway?

I had a call from the ABQ chief pilot on the Vans, and he wanted me to come in for an interview. He called a couple days later telling me HR in Idaho already filled the position.

Still hoping something else might open up. Empire sounds like a decent place to spend some time

is it possible to get hirded in the left seat on the 121 side with less than 2000 pic if you greatly exceed all of the other time requierments?

no you need 3000 tt for the insurance. 1000me pic. 500 crew and trubine. most off the street cpts have worked in same capacity or where right seat at 121 but we have been burned before on right seaters going into left at our company. apply anyway since upgrade time is fairly quick now.

I've been told by some of my fellow CFI's at our flight school that they have a flow through arrangement to FedEx mainline. Is this true?

There is some sort of "executive refferal" but I think its a sham. Known many pilot that tried to do it but it never got anywhere. If you want go to Fedex go thru the military first.

the 121 schedules out of sea are busy. out in the afternoon back the next day in the afternoon. no 121 in pdx but it is a possibilty in the future. you can commute but way easier to live there or plan to get a crash pad. you work everyday with only the weekends off sometimes. the referral is true just the wrong people have tried it but definetly not a flow through.blingair when are they going to let you out of you cage?atrcpt what is up. if this fedex thing dosen't go down how bout a little help with gemini. waiting till the end of the year though.

Yo worm, are you doing the E.R.? If you are I'd say don't waste your time. I don't think anyone has even got an invite for an interview ever. Don't know when I'll be back...I was just marooned out here and left for dead but I'm moving back there next month.

Nice to hear your heading back to SEA Blingair. The Fokkers do rule, and I did notice some strange hair products in my bathroom after I flew the ATR's.
As far as IOE, I'm heading out on the 7th for my 8 days of work this month.

Eight days of work in a month...that's more my speed! What's up my EA brothers? Bling, you're not still in ICT are you!?! If you are let me know and I'll overnight a case of Alaskan Amber to you. My type ride is on Sunday morning, and IOE after Thanksgiving. You, the worm and I. sharted need to get over here ASAP. These guys talk about places like Hong Kong and London like I talk about Spokane and Seattle! Word is we're getting another MD11 so hiring will start after the first of the year for both airframes. Give me a call.

PS, I'm serious about the Amber.

F&B: Where are you going on your IOE, hope its Bangcock or somewhere fun. I'm planning on moving back to SEA in late November but since the ICT f/o quit (imagine that) I'm sure I'll get my RX pulled (bet you don't miss those amateur shananigans). So I'm sure I'll be spending the holidays here. Take care.

AvionTransportRegionalPilotinCommand: Good luck on your ride, I'm sure you'll do fine. Dude if you send me a case of Amber I'll totally give you one of my several illegitimate children roaming the street. I'll PM you my "address".
