Default CFI's with Type ratings needed

Hey All, I dont know if this is somthing anyone would be interested in but I saw it posted on another website, and I figured some guys out here might like to register. Note: I hope its ok for me to post this my goal is simply to spread some information on some possible contract jobs for some guys that are furloughed and have CFI ratings.

Type required = Pay for training to get the type!

Ok, mabye I read this wrong but it appeared to me that anyone who is furloughed and has instructor ratings and is already typed in an aircraft that they could use you as a pilot mentor on that aircraft...I didnt think there was any PFT involved, just what I read on USPilot. I took it to mean any types you currently hold. Im guessing this involves more the people that worked 135 and had types in corporate aircraft before they went 121.

Otto,

I'm not sure I understand what you mean, because I hold both a CFI ticket and type ratings, I paid for my types?

Wow, Im really confused now, I posted this thinking that many who were lucky enough to have CFI ratings and earned a few types over their careers could use this info, and now its a PFT debate..how did that happen.

Don't waste your time with this. You won't be contacted, and if you contact them they want you to buy a Ciation Mustang type or something.

The one person in that company without a type rating must have created that page. "Do you have any type of rating?"

If they are looking for mentors for VLJ's then they expect you to pay for the type. I have 7 type ratings, but I'm sure they don't care about airliners.

Default Pay for type

I understand the reasoning for not paying for training for a job, but in the scenario where you are operating as an independant contractor providing unique professional services to a client, is paying for a type really that bad? If paying 12,000 for a type rating allows me to charge $1000 per day for 70+ days a year, that doesn't sound like such a bad deal. On the other hand, paying thousands for a type to qualify you for a $22,000 per year job on an RJ sounds extremely foolish. However, taking a $22,000 per year job on an RJ means, in fact, that you are paying for training, albeit in lack of compensation.

Just wondering what ya'll thought.
