I know of a corporate Falcon 20 job (Co-captain, switch seats every other leg) paying $55k to fly about 80 hours a year. Need the type rating and experience. It's flying an oil guy around. He also owns a GIII, but my understanding is that there is no chance to move up into that...not sure though. This was as of about 2 weeks ago...

Skydonkey,

Apparently trying to get a DFW corporate gig is like trying to get a backstage pass to Hef's mansion.

Good luck though, I'll be needing a DAL gig myself in about six years.

That has been the exact opposite of my experience. The DFW markert is very easy to get into. There are so many aviation jobs in the DFW area, somebody will put you in their airplane. You might not get what you want right off the bat, but fly a LR35 or HS125 out of the area for a while and things will come your way. DFW is the place to go if you are wanting to fly but having trouble finding work elsewhere.

That's good to know hawkerfo. Everything else I have read painted doom and gloom in the DAL area. I would trade this rat infested hell hole (BPT) for a DAL gig yesterday.
Keep a slot open for me!

Alright, enough already. Anybody care to tell me how you post a quote showing who originally said it? It used to work for me until the change here about six months ago.

Somebody help this tech challenged redneck.

I certainly do not want to go to Dallas, so I guess I'll have to settle for Hef's backstage passes. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.:beer:

Propilot,

If that 20 job is who I think it is, don't buy a house.

He used to be based here and went throught about 35 captains in 12 years. Some literally lasted hours.

I'm not even remotely interested. I was approached about the job and said no thanks. It had nothing to do with the job or owner. It would just be counter-productive to my long term goals. Also, I'm quite happy with my current job, and I'm trying to get out of Dallas...I'm hoping to move into the even tougher aviation market in MSP...any leads?
