Next month I will be getting my loadmaster certs in the DC-10 and MD-11 both pax and freighters. Shortly thereafter I will get my certs for the 747-400F. I have been looking around for additional loadmaster gigs on the side of WO and haven't been able to find much. Anyone know of a good place to look for side jobs? I have looked at Gemini, Southern Air Cargo, and Kalitta. I live in ATL and have no issues being away for long stretches. Thanks.

Nice Trip Report!!! Great Pics, thanks for posting!!!! B747Forever

I cant help you in the job search, but my question is how do you go about getting your certs for this job?

I work for a cargo carrier (don't want to mention which one) and I am a Operations Manager now. Been doing this for 10 years and I have a pretty good gig. We run scheduled freighters. But any adhoc charters we run. I will fly from my home base and setup handling and work on the aircraft and then come home. Usually I'm gone about 4-6 days out of the month. It is fun but gets old after a while. Few years back I was gone for 28 days and I had enough. I have been approached by Polar/Atlas and Gemini and have declined. I'm 31 now. But at ages of 23-28 I would have but looking back I'm glad I didn't. If you can't find a loadmaster job try working in a warehouse where they build 747 freight and you will meet plenty of loadmasters in the business. That was how I had started and made connections.
Good luck and feel free to ask me questions
