Maybe he doesnít want one. Rather blinkered view of anotherís post. Not to mention snarky or insulting.

Wow it is very presumptuous and juvenile on your part to assume that someone can't get a job with the airline. Do you just pick random post and reply with immature and irrelevant comments ...and yes that's rhetorical means no need to respond.


So that being said this board and the many people on it can and will provide you with tons information and help with all aspects of the many aviation career paths someone chooses to pursue.

I have through this board got two very good jobs in my aviation career, learned a lot because... I came here seeking information and I pass information on when I can and help others. I suggest you take note of my suggestions on how to use this board.

Best of luck to you

He doesn’t want to sit in the closet playing with his Microsoft Flite Simulator... Wink Wink Nudge Nuge say no more. Must be pretty tough living at home in the basement with Mom and Dad... huh?

Looks like I struck a nerve with the undesirables. What was the issue, no degree? Checkered past?

APC to the rescue again!

I've never heard of any casino operator that was really good to work for, but its probably better than retail 135.

Your post screams, ďmy choices are assumed to be the best, if youíre not making my choices, your either stupid or ĎundesirableíĒ. Well, sorry to break the news, in life, people make all kinds of choices that are not yours and live perfectly fine lives.

Currently at a regional on the 900, prior 135. Couple of type ratings.

It can be a great career, IF you like challenges, are looking for taking on responsibility rather than being a number on a list and can accept changes.

Exactly what Iím looking for. 121 is not my cup of tea, I enjoyed the challenges and tasks that came with 135/91..

Then, look for a department/operator that has some strong internal controls and processes regarding flight and maintenance; has extensive international ops and a leadership that knows what they are about. If they can’t give you straight, confident answers about their policies and procedures, show you in black and white how they work; look elsewhere.

Next, learn and never stop learning. Attend a safety program like USC or ERAU, if you don’t know the answer, don’t ask, look it up, do research. It’s not the easy way, but it’s what works.

Become the local expert in an area you are passionate about, study leadership, do the NBAA CAM program.

Low time, recently COM certificated ASEL and in middle of changing careers. Any other professional development programs you could suggest?

I'm being considered for a P91 right seat in a PC-12. They are getting FAA approval for Pilot Development Program and I guess get a letter form FAA so can sit SIC and log time with passengers and PIC on empty legs.

Looking to separate myself from lower time pilots while I build time, etc.

this thread seems to have drifted from the OP's question: does anyone have any information about Caesar's Entertainment? QOL, pay, etc.
thanks

What's so challenging about 91/135? I've done both, and didn't find one more challenging than the other. You had more tedious work 91/135, but it's certainly not more of a challenge. I'd rather get paid almost triple with a better sched, less tedious BS and comparable responsibility.

And are you always on call or do they have true days off?

Iíve done both plus several varieties of military flying. Unless youíre making $600,000 plus, itís not triple or even near triple the money. If you have been a Chief Pilot or DOA managing a department, you know the responsibilities and challenges leading 30 pilots and F/As flying 4-5 planes international. When was the last time you planned, say Petro to Bora Bora or in/out of Israel without the company dispatch?

Itís different, not to take anything from airline flying. Iíve been both.
