since theyre the largest 135 operator in the US and theyre entirely scheduled... can i assume they have jumpseat priv's with everyone?

also anyone have any idea what the Metro Capt's make per year/month? i know the Lance guys make about 1500/ mo and the Cheiftan guys about 1700/mo please say the pay gets livable when youre a turbine capt pleeeease?

I flew for them last year in the 99's. They have excellent maintenance, a great bunch of pilots, and a variety of bases. The 99 pay was 25k/year. The metro pay starts at around 33k depending on the run. As far as jumpseat goes, we lost our jumpseat with everybody after 911. Before that we had Southwest, UPS, Airborne, DHL, and most regionals. Don't plan on commuting. Ameriflight is a great place to get turbine time quick except most of it will be single pilot. As far as I know they are starting everyone in the Lance or Chieftain nowdays. Good Luck.
