T,
Keep us posted on your experience looking and interviewing. I should be interesting reading.....and helpful to some of us.

I'm not far behind you.

I did some corporate flying in the 70's, which drove me to fly dirty old freighters. My first trip PDK - CHA with one VP. Thunderstorms and a broke radar.... I got an ass chewing from the VP before reaching TOC for not having his brand of scotch on board, at 11 AM! There were good gigs back then too, but not many.

Hopefully it's changed.

Any advice or recommendations on where to search or prep, are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Have you thought about air ambulance? I was just reading a thread where someone described it as the ideal retirement job, due to the schedules.

I did some corporate flying, briefly after the Air Force. I didn't care for it.

Got picked up by an Uber driver at DAL in a Mercedes. Was in uniform. Talked about baseball, guns (he had a shooting bag in the car), and small talk. Aviation came up. I could tell by the questions he was asking that he knew a lot but I wasn’t sure how. Drops me off and I ask, “I gotta know. Are you an air traffic controller?” Response - “Nope. A retired 787 captain...” Well okay then. So there’s always Uber
