I have dabbled in contracting and would love to do it full time but, I haven't made the jump. Having a guaranteed paycheck and hard days off would be hard to give up.

Thanks for the info. The part time flying of a business jet is what I am looking for. I am not concerned with a guranteed paycheck but I would need to justify the annual recurrent costs etc. I hear the daily rate for an FO is pretty good with the right customer.
