Exclamation CE-500 Series Help!

Hey all,

I am using this as a last ditch effort for someone who may be able to help me network with the right people..

I just graduated college in December and received a scholarship from the MBAA to receive a Citation 500 series SIC type rating (completed in a Encore+) through FlightSafety. I've completed the course and need a landing in the actual aircraft to make the endorsement valid. This endorsement expires in May of next year however here's where my dilemma comes in..

I have been in the Air National Guard for the past 6 years and have been promoted and given a pilot slot at my base on the kc135. I leave for training soon and once I'm gone for training, I'm gone for 2 years and my endorsement will expire. I understand an SIC type isn't really a type but I'd rather have it than just let it expire.

I am currently in Wisconsin flight instructing and will travel wherever to get the actual landing done. I have done my research and there aren't many operators here in Wisconsin with a 500 series Citation. If anyone knows someone who may be doing a maintenance flight or is looking for a fill in SIC for a few months I would greatly appreciate it if anyone would feel comfortable passing information to me, or even giving me information of where I could send a resume!

Thanks guys and hope to hear from you!

I wasn't under the impression the "sic type rating" expires. 61.55 doesn't say anything about it.

It is a shame to let such a thing go to waste, but I'm thinking that your future training and type in a BE-40 will more than make up for the lack of a CE-500 SIC rating for any possible future employment.

Congrats on the opportunity though.
If you would care too share your journey, we've had a lot of the usual 'best ways to go about.....' type of questions lately from people looking to follow your path.

Maye a new thread in the 'Military' forum detailing your selection process?

I thought the point was that it wasn't "valid" until he gets that last requirement complete - the actual landing.

That it the main point but it also expires if I do not do the actual landing within a year. Kind of a double bummer.

I have an SIC endorsement without an expiration. with that said, I took a recurrent a couple weeks ago that is only valid for a year (for insurance reasons) I had no idea they issued them with expirations though. --congrats on the job as well!

I'm in Wisconsin now. I teach out of Sturgeon Bay, Green Bay, and Appleton. The 512 is from part of the tail number I was a crew chief on.

If you have the time, just go to the military forum and start a thread with a title of something like 'Just got a pilot slot" and post a sort of timeline or checklist of what you did to help win the spot. It seems that you were enlisted in the unit first for example? Did you enlist under the advice that the particular unit liked to hire from within or were you already in when you made the decision that you wanted to be a pilot?

These are the types of questions that often get asked and having someone who recently went through the process would be beneficial to have as a source of information.
