Hi everyone,
I am an experienced GV guy (4000 in Type) who is looking to get a start as a contract pilot.

Anyone have either good advice, or even better, a need for an experienced GV/550 pilot?

Thanks

Network...connect....meet n greet.

I would start by being upfront and introducing yourself to people in the know on the GV/550.
- LinkedIn profile for yourself
- Facebook contract pilot group
- Flycontract.com

Just a few places to start! Once you get your name out there, it’s a matter of time before someone calls with a trip. If you are good to get along with...they will recommend you to their friends. Word of mouth works wonders for getting the contract work.

All the best chasing the work!!
