Hello everyone! I want to apply for cadet pilot programmes and seek information about it, especially health wise. But at the moment I can't make a thread about it.

Default Title intentionally left blank.

Howdy; I fly left seat at a part 135 operator doing a job I love for a company that may not love me.

4800 hours total. Two turboprop type ratings (one single-piloted and one crewed). CFI/II/MEI, but haven't taught in a decade. Dorky enough to fly flight sims in my free time.

Smile Howdy from Houston

Hello from the Carcinogenic Coast! Enjoyed my time as a Part 135 Cowboy, but very excited to begin life in the Majors through the completion of a pathway program. Get me out of this Houston heat! Fly warbirds for fun during my off time.

Default New to the group..

180+ Multi
120+ Multi Turbine, B300
Some Jet
2023~ 300hrs

A&P License

Recreational pilot for many years. Flying since 2008, lots of radial engine and tail wheel time. President of manufacturing/retail company. Always wanted to be a professional commercial pilot when I was younger but it wasnít in the cards. I just turned 40 and am perusing a career change.

Iíve always loved the King Air and have applied with Wheels Up. I understand their current situation but still optimistic.

I am very open to suggestions and not opposed to anything. Iím chasing flying and quality of life more than a big paycheck but wonít turn down a good opportunity.

Exclamation Hello everyone

Hows it going everyone?

My name is Frank, I am currently working as a repair tech for Tesla at Giga-Texas and have decided to get my PPL. I recently went though a nasty divorce and got screwed on the visitation time of my kids. I am only allowed to see them once a month and I work on Sundays. I figured If I had my PPL, I could fly into DFW, scoop up my boys and maximize the time I have with them. I have chosen above and beyond aviation school in Austin Tx. If anyone has any tips, advice, feedback, or suggestions I would appreciate all of it. Vet's has anyone found a way to use GI or other benefits?
