I have a question about Ameriflight in U.S. I have a plan to enter into the
Ameriflight's Time-Building Program this summer. I will pay for it about
$ 30,000 to Ameriflight. How about that Time-building Program? Are there
someone who knows about it?
Thank you very much for your reply.

ahah! is that with eaglejet?, good luck my friend, once you pay, you will need 5 years to complete your hours, then you will work at night & day to deliver pizzas , people will pretty much spit in your face. only Cretins and bad pilots pay to fly!
after 1 month, you will regret it!
have fun !!!

you think they will hire you? are you from korea?
you will spend 30'000$ + living expense, just to try???
just be real , once you get 1000h, they may ask you for a type rating and hours on the plane.

why not teach for a while and learn more about aviation than you ever would by just buying a job?
do you consider youself above being a CFI?

I see folks flying right seat constantly at Ameriflight. Their operations allow for a second-in-command and the time is loggable. First officers are very useful in low visibility situations in some of the aircraft as they lower the takeoff minimums.
I think the time spent in the 135 cargo operations are a lot more valuable than playing pilot with a friend and burning holes in the sky for a hundred hours, in terms of experience gained.
jedinein, loggable as in the FAA does not object.
But that's not the real question; how do the Aviation Authorities of foreign pilots look upon this time?
SIC in an airplane which is single pilot certified?
All teh aircraft that Ameriflight uses are single pilot certified and as far as I know their Ops manual allows a second pilot but does not require it.
Presto, no SIC required and you cannot log SIC as far as I'm concerned.
You could only log PIC time as the sole manipulator of the controls.
Not even PIC as in being the real PIC becsaue they don't give you PIC training only a SIC course as far as I know.
