How in the heck without type and time in type does anyone get into this game? All I see are jobs that require that stuff. This is probably a dead horse but WTF, everyone wants something for nothing.
amazing how may furloughed-from-the-major guys are "ready to come back to their roots" in Corporate Aviationthanks, I got furloughed from a major airline, Chief pilot for part 91 now. I forgot how much I liked this part of aviation, the roots, not a bus driver for the masses anymore, "did my luggage make it on this flight?"
I would like to find the gig that I can settle down with but you know how aviation is "settle down" is a pipe dream.
The everlasting search continues...

once they get recalled, or the next job comes along, see ya. Roots? See ya
All about me baby, all about me
I didn't see much hostility towards him for being an airline guy...but I see plenty for him asking how to break into corporate with a hint of entitlement ("something for nothing" comment), then claiming to be a part 91 Chief Pilot. If he was a Part 91 chief pilot, he wouldn't need to ask how to break into the industry, now would he?Someone asks for some guidance and all you guys do is take shots at him for being a former airline guy. Why the hostility?
I disagree.frankly, being responsible for 150+ lives and $65 million dollars worth of airplane is more stressful than 5 lives and a corporate jet.
Someone who claims to be a part 91 chief pilot should know the answer to that question...that's my whole point!He asked how to get started, not how to be the CP for a Fortune 100 company.
Then how would you quantify this statement?I don't see any sense of entitlement in his post.
That statement, especially in this economy with THOUSANDS of highly experienced corporate pilots out of work, sure seems like a bit of an entitlement attitude to me...All I see are jobs that require that stuff. This is probably a dead horse but WTF, everyone wants something for nothing.
They don't...but they also shouldn't have an expectation that just because they are an experienced airline pilot that they should be able to waltz right into a part 91 department as a PIC, not knowing the airplane or the operation. Its that sense of entitlement thing again...Why should an experienced airline pilot have to start out at the very bottom in the corporate world?
On that, I agree 100%.Most experienced corporate pilots would make great major airline pilots and most experienced airline pilots would make great corporate pilots.
