Hey guys, I've gotta a friend that needs info on MAC...mostly about Pay, and do they have any NC or SC bases?? On behalf of my friend we appreciate the help and info.
LAFrequentflyer said:I like their pay as well...With my military retirement plus their pay - i'll be making more than a RJ Captain...And for good reason- i'm much better looking, not to mention my large...well, you get the picture...
Not sure about the bases, I don't like to guess. Give them a call and peak to someone in HR / CP...Something tells me a company that hasn't had any layoff in 30+ years will have someone willing to take the time to answer a few questions...MAC appears to be a class act....
I dont have them...Wish I did, i'd gladly forward to you...Maybe one of the people working there can PM to you...
CrimsonEclipse said:Bases range on type of aircraft.
MEM, FLL, Ft. Pierce (I think), San Juan, a bunch of others, I'll edit if I
remember any more
F-27 is going the way of the Dodo. For now, the F27 is in MIA, BQN,
MEM, IND. None are really bases per se, they seem to be all floaters.
ATR-42 is all over, Nashville, MEM, Chattenooga(ms), and a Jacksonville
i think, and a bunch (like I said, I'll repost if I remember more)
ATR-72 Soon to be South America.
F/O F27 and ATR are the same pay, ($24,000 to start)
C-208 is $32,000 (give or take)
As for time, it varies. You'll want 1000 PIC for the C-208. I'm thinking
a pulse is needed for F/O's right now.
The "sim" test is a PC with a yoke and panel attachment. Single engine.
The roll rate is like a freakin' fighter jet so be sharp.
On the VOR approach, the course changes after the VOR, remember
to change the OBS when you cross! And checklist (should go without saying)
I'll check back ina few days if you want more info.

wheelsup said:Say that in August when it's 105 out with 99% humidity with no a/c.
There's the 'expanded' version of the flight requirements - 208 requires 1500 TT & 135 mins.
I thought that FedEx required 2000 TT for their Caravan feeders? When I was researching that area of the industry I remember everyone I looked up had that requirement...!?!
huncowboy said:Wow 1000PIC??? ... a case for a CFI. That is not even P135. I am having a hard time believing that. The caravan sure sound lovely though. I am also sure I can still fly a PC... not so sure about real planes anymore (j/k). I wouldn't even care about my possible regional interview if I could stay in FL and fly a caravan... at least for now when my hands are tied (as far as relocation).
Is there any chance to get FLL? Any training contract to sign? Cause I am as broke as a Ford out of warranty. What do they fly out of FLL? I know they fly the caravan but I am sure they won't let you loose in that with 1000PIC. What is a typical schedule? Sorry for the amount of questions but their site is not very informative.
Thanks for any info.
I thought I'd seen a bunch of FedEx vans and F27s during the early morning push out of GSO. Too many for it to just be a stop on the tour. Do you know which aircraft are based there? The website doesn't list the aircraft, or at least it didn't last time I was there.we have bases at gso, cae , myr
PilotChapin said:I'm sure that with Fed Ex placing a hub at GSO there will be alot more work out of GSO with MAC as well. My friend will be glad to hear that there are GSO bases, he's been wanting to move back there for like ever.
CrimsonEclipse said:I think 2 (F27) runs go into GSO but I don't think they are BASED in GSO.
Same goes for MEM, there are 5 or 6 ATR's there but only 1 or 2 are
