Key word there is "Midwest." Terrain clearance can be a big issue with turboprops when you're flying in the Western US. That being said, I think the 340A wouldn't have many issues flying around the Carribean - no mountains or very much icing to worry about.Don't be a hater. We flew the A models with 30 people all over the Midwest, climbing at 500 fpm, and liked it! ;-)
It will be the Saab340Bs; First one should be on the line in January with a total of 6 by June 2013.It says you all are acquiring the Saab 340Bs...are those Bs or B+s? I have worked with the B+'s and they are MUCH more dispatcher friendly from what I heard from colleagues of mine.
Well, the original posting was on August 8 - did you apply then? If you only just applied then they probably had indeed filled the position by now. Keep an eye out, they will probably be hiring again eventually.I am a Sheffield grad and I send them a resume as soon as I see the ad on the Shef site and within 10 hours they say there are no positions. It seems a bit quick to reply when the ad has just reposted.
