From my understanding, part 135 can continue to fly after age 65 opening up a few more options. The C 408 SkyCourier looks impressive! Be interesting to see the captain pay rates and if they'll staff with SICs. It's probably a single pilot aircraft but the right seat could certainly be a farm for newly minted commercial pilots to build experience and go to the C208 as a captain.
