150+ hours of multi time. So in comparison to total time, the multi time is there. The total time is not. How long do you think I would have to do 135 SIC before PIC? How would it count towards the ultimate goal of getting to the airlines?

You're making this big decision and haven't research regulatory requirements for Part 135, haven't researched typical minimums for jobs you're looking to get?

Do yourself a favor and check this stuff out. Read the regs. Check the numerous job sites to see the minimums for the types of operations you're interested in.

On another note, the regionals don't care about your experience as long as you meet the regulatory minimums and interview well.

If it's a job that isn't VFR-only, then you need 1,200 hours.

Again, I asked you about the requirements for PIC under 135 because it's evident that you didn't know.

The percentage of your multi time is irrelevant. 150 hours is nothing...but it's a start. Don't focus on that at all. Get current, get a job (any job), and get more experience. Go get a CFI and start instructing. Go start towing banners. Get some experience. At your experience level, beggars cannot be too choosey. Take what you can find.

VFR mins gets you in their 207. Caravans need more time. They are very selective though.

I currently work at Westwind Air Service and if I were a betting man, I’d say before the year is out there’s gonna be another training class since there are around 4-5 guys leaving the company for the regionals in August/September. PM me if interested in learning more about the company.

Kind of off topic, but Westwind must have one of the nicest websites I've ever seen for a 135 operator, wow. Not that designing your site on squarespace is all that hard, but I'm pretty impressed.

Yeah their website was seriously antiquated not even 3-4 months ago. Around the time I started instructing over in the flight school side, they were rebranding and updating everything. Now our website has a lot of flair, and I saw Air Service’s website and it was slick.
