    I would say AMF as a 99 driver in BUR/ONT, but you're a little shy on the night time...

    Mokulele needs people in LA for the 208. Low pay, nice little company.

    Yeah I stuck around the drop zone scene too long and let my hours get lopsided. Not very often did we break out the glow sticks and beacons to jump at night. Thanks for the reply.

    Ameriflight will probably put you in the right seat in BE-99, 1900 or EMB 120. You are short of xc time but that would not matter much because you don't need 135 pic minimum. I would try them. Recruiters seem willing to work with pilots if they are short of time. A lot of places these day are hiring as low as fresh commercial into the right seat. ( Air Cargo Carriers advertised that but they do not have upcoming f/o class...running captain class right now). Try PC-12 135 like tradewinds aviation, planesense, boutique air,etc. Or Caravan right seat job like southern air express, glo airline, mokulele,etc. Since you ar short of xc time at least they will be unlikely to think you will bail fast and you get a leg up a bit since you have turbo prop experience. Pay will be anywhere from 25000-40000. Not a lot I know.

    May I recommend Skywest? If you get the CRJ you could hold FAT in no time.

    To quote someone else from this site, Ameriflight is a "hot mess" right now. New owners, and I wouldn't bother as they seem to not know what's they're expecting from new hires from class to class, and failures are apparently happening at an unacceptable rate as I've been told from someone who attended last month's class. Not sure on Boutique but that might seem to be an option, and Mokulele is simply attractive.....but single-engine. The large regionals really do make it all very easy too.
