Thank you all for the input! I'm currently enrolled at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and I'm about 3/4 through my bachelors degree. So I think that will help. I'm on board on getting the commercial License ASAP. I'm using King schools course, It helped tremendously with my instrument. So It looks like commercial, then multi, then CFI. Does that sound about right? When I get the commercial, I think I'll look into getting a gig like flying mail or something like that. someone mentioned if I get offered to get a type rating, take it? Does it just happen like that? Someone just says "hey, you wanna get a type rating in this aircraft"? You all are being awesome answering all these remedial questions, so thank you!

Some guys are skipping the CFI if they are free to move to Hawaii. With a Commercial, Instrument ticket, they are flying passengers in turboprops there. They have jumpseat privileges and they get real world experience. No matter what, make sure you qualify for the R-ATP by continuing with a ERís 141 program.

And, if you get offered an ATP type ride, take it. Sometimes, CAE or FS will do this for seat seaters.

You might want to take a look at some of the 135 Cargo haulers like Ameriflight, etc. Youíll probably build time just as fast with them, if not faster. And, itíll be twin time, possibly turbine. It beats touch & goes in a 172 all day long.

I agree. No CFI rating required either.

Check out Mokulele Airlines. Commercial certificate. Instrument rating.

I have seen lots of guys come from there into the regionals.

Just be aware that the flying portion may not be covered by the GI bill, they will cover the classes or the flying, but not both. At least that how it was when I did it, I might have changed.

Don't pay for a type, that's not really needed. You gonna need that 1500 hrs. That's your gial, even that restricted one, really won't do much for you other than get you the ATP, if you got a 1000 hrs, you can go ahead and get the extra 500 which won't take that much longer to get. Even if you go to the airlines, with a restrictive, you can only upgrade after you get the extra 500 hrs.
Good luck to you!

Under the post 911 GI Bill, the classes and the flying are both covered as long as the flying is part of the degree. IOW, you canít use it to build time, only to complete a course thatís required for your specific degree.
