Love the discussion about paying for a type, vs not paying.

For about 25 years Southwest required a type just to APPLY. I thought then that it was total BS and still do. But, I have several senior Captain buddies there now who found the time and money to get a type while they were being paid peanuts as commuter (T-Pro) pilots. Trust me, that was the BEST money they ever "wasted".

Default CE500 type relevancy

I'm considering a CE550 position at a mom and pop Part135 flying as SIC initially with quick upgrade to PIC at 1500TT. In terms of career trajectory, how valuable would this experience and type be down the road for future employment vs flying something newer/more relevant? How would this experience look on a resume compared to 121 experience at a regional or flying a better biz jet? Ultimately, I'm trying to get to a major or a NetJets.

I used my CE500 type for one operator and never touched it again. I guess it covers a bunch but any operator worth their salt will just send you to initial on anything anyway. Don't pay for it.

Are they paying for your type? What salary will you be getting if employed?

Yes, paid training. Approx $70k=FO $150k=CA. Schedule=6/6. It would be a good gig for sure.
