True. You could tie off on a pine & let the Hobbs run. Or make laps as a TA for those in training just behind you like everybody else. Flight instructors have a lead role to play in lives of those who count on them.

The statements he made I actually agree with, unfortunately. But when a young guy is given two scenarios----- CFI to regional to maybe a flow, or signing up to fly around at night in a Bandeirante in the northeast, which door do you think he'll pick if they are looking at an airline career long term?

I mean, my first 5,000 hours was in ratty turboprops and the most fun ill ever have in a plane, but I don't fault a guy for wanting to gravitate to the route that might accelerate their career seniority a bit faster if 121 airline's is the end game.

Suggestion not criticism. There’s no one way to do it. But when you get to Indoc and look around, nice to be already familiar with the attitudes, aptitudes and grab a$$ing about to fill the next two months.
