I saw a Fedex feeder turboprop going into and out of Destin, Florida awhile ago. Does anyone know how I can find out who it was or how I can use it to get out of the VPS area? Any help or a phone number would be great. I called the Destin Airport Authority and they said they didn't know who it was. Hmmmm....

It must have been a Caravan run. We do not have any runs on the ATR from there. Anyway, the Mountain is not on CASS. We can not accommodate anybody yet, even FedEx pilots. They have been saying they are working on getting us on CASS for a while. I will not believe it until I see a picture of myself in the computer of the gate agent of the airline I am trying to jump seat on.

From what I understand, FX has a flow through program for hiring on with various Indian airlines. The pay is 2-3 times what you can make in the States.

Makes you wonder, how bad must Empire Airlines be if living in India is a handsome alternative?

Try this http://www.caravanpilots.com/operators.htm
Many of the Fed Ex feeders are shown here.

Good Luck

Sorry,
we tend to hijack the purple threads. Call it the Empire Elementary effect. The guy who started the thread might be out of work and looking for a job and we aren't helping.
There are a few large Fedex feeders and many small ones. You can check out: Empire, who does everything north and west of the Mississippi and Mountain Air Cargo who does everything east and south. Also there is Wiggins, West Air, Pac Air and some others...come on guys throw down some names for a brother in need. Pretty sure no one is hiring right now, but don't let that stop you from trying. Also, the good old search button is a valuable resource. Take care and good luck.

dunno
Feeders really aren't that bad. You do/did get to fly with hunky capatains like ATR Capt. That would make it worth it for me.
