Default Part 121 Post retirement Job seeker

Currently flying for a legacy Part 121 carrier in the US and age 65 is just 20 months away. Starting to look for flying opportunities once I do retire.

Default Old dog chasing the stick

Hey all. I'm a 38 y/o who has spent the last 20 years managing supply chain and financial companies. I flew a lot back in high school (pre-9/11). Loved it. Sat in a flight simulator at a virtual reality store and the itch came back. Went up in a Piper Cherokee (low wing) and the addiction is strong, also the GPS technology feels like cheating.

So... I'm back to flying.

Back in to flying after a 8 year hiatus. Spent some time in the Army and built about 1500 hours. 45y.o. and retired after working in CT my last few years. Told about a pilot shortage so decided to get back into flying. Appreciate all the advice and information shared on this site. Hopefully I have a few cents I can offer as I pad the resume. Recently accepted a CJO at a regional.

Default In the middle of a career change

I'm 34 and have had the flying bug since age 4. Got my PPL after High School with Instrument, and Commercial SEL afterwards all through working at an airport and cleaning lots of airplanes and a helicopter or two. After college I decided to develop my backup career in accounting and realized I hated it. I'd rather do something I love so I'm all in for flying for a career and for fun as well. I'm sitting now with 552 hours and added my SES rating this year in hopes of being considered for some seaplane jobs. Next, I plan on getting my CFI and ME ratings. My current options are wide open and I'm seeking work. I am looking at everything from banner towing, to becoming a Flight Engineer. Any leads and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hey everyone,

Retired MIL but out of the cockpit for several years. Kids are all grown up so my hat is now in the ring! 4000 hrs, mostly E-2C and C-40A/B-737. Last MIL flight was 2009, and a little bit of tailwheel SEL over the last year or so. Looking forward to getting back in the game and I have apps submitted. Fingers crossed.

Good luck to all others that are pursuing the dream!

Default Hello

Hi guys and gals.
I am a pvt pilot approx 450 hrs. Haven't flown in a while as life tends to get in the way, plus i had an heart attack in 2008.

I am in battle with the FAA to reinstate my third class medical certificate. Making me jump through hoops for sure but I am like a jackass with three feet in the cement. I will win this war.

I know I am not in your league, just want to read and learn from you. I have not been in the left seat for 20 yrs, got a lot to catch up on.

My first plane was a Cessna 150, got my ticket with it, sold that one, purchased a 172, flew the pants off that. Flew sky divers with a newer model 182.

Purchase a Citabria, had a ball, sold that bought a J3 and a Champ.

So here I am.
Thanks for letting me in.

I just joined the forum.

I flew extensively in the mid-70s to early 90s as a flight instructor, charter pilot, and corporate pilot. I've co-owned a part 135 executive charter company as well as an aircraft sales and pilot services company.

I've flown many types of general aviation airplanes, up through Lear 30 series and Cessna Citations. My most memorable flight was right seat on a 1934 DC-2: LGB-LAS-GCN-LAS-LGB.

I retired a couple of years ago from a large aerospace company where I was senior engineering manager.
