I am interested in doing some part-time Contract Pilot work in the Challenger 601 and/or 604.

What is the best way to "get your name" out there and actually get some calls? Do the online Websites work or is it better to use some type of a "headhunter" service?

Also, if I am fortunate enough to get a call, what type of rate should I ask for/expect. I have heard $800 a day for the 601 and $900 a day for the 604 (CONUS rates). Is this accurate?

Any and all info is appreciated.

Knock on doors and hand out resumes with cover letters explaining what you're interested in doing for them, contract flying. Those rates are what Challenger pilots are getting around here.

Email Kelly at: kelly@flightcrews.com

Get on their list and you'll get calls from them. I've been with them for awhile, they pay above standard and they airline you to and from wherever it is they need you. All expenses paid too.

What Fly91 said, knock on doors, knock on a lot of doors. Get business cards from as many as you can and get the word out what you're looking for. Your rates sound reasonable. Good luck.

These sites are run by a very good friend of mine. For a nominal fee she'll post your resume and profile for you. When I was on the site I almost wanted to disconnect my phone.;)

Just an FYI but, take a look and see what you think.
