Ram Air Freight is currently looking for qualified VFR pilots to fill the June 25 class. We fly almost all IFR, and for this class we are looking for applicants close to Part 135 IFR min’s who would start as VFR pilots and transition to IFR once meeting the minimum hour requirements. We are a Part 135 air courier operator with several bases scattered throughout the Southeast. With a regular schedule of Monday through Friday, the majority of the routes being day/afternoon runs you will gain the invaluable experience of single pilot, multi engine, all weather operations and also get home every night, allowing you to have a “normal” life outside of your job.
We do not require any minimum multi engine time for application. Thanks to our 65% twin to single engine airplane ratio upgrades typically occur no longer than 4 months after the VFR to IFR checkride, depending upon the employee’s flexibility to relocate and the current company needs. Everybody starts in the PA32 and we do not do VFR multi engine training. Initial training lasts a full week and incorporates in depth ground and flight training, during which Ram Air Freight provides housing.
For VFR positions, in order to qualify applicants MUST meet Part 135 VFR minimums, be actively flying and proficient, and more generally be capable of reaching checkride standards within 6 hours of flight training. We require at least 800TT for VFR applicants, preferably 1000 or more, a CFI, and instrument skills. There is a 6 month training contract.
Benefits include Blue Cross Blue Shield and dental insurance (we pay 50%), Simple IRA retirement plan, and jumpseat privileges.
