The job posting in May which caught my attention said that the position was 80% work from home 20% travel. Is that just a temporary covid protocol?

And more broadly, Id like to find out more information on what the career entails; daily tasks, advancement opportunities, training program details and placement. I live in Minneapolis and as my wife is also a 121 pilot based here, we do not wish to relocate if able.

Step one, I want to at least see if this is a career I would enjoy. I have thought about giving the fsdo a call to schedule a meeting, basically to see what the job is and answer these preliminary questions.

Thank you!
Are you looking at Ops Inspector Air Carrier or Ops Inspector GA?

If AC, you need to find a CMO where you want to live, and if GA, then a FSDO.

AC Ops has different requirements from GA Ops for hiring. Also, the two jobs vary in training and in everyday routine.
