- Total Time
I have a buddy with about 4500 hrs (many of it multi) as well as a CL65 type rating. He just has the type but no real life experience in it. He has an offer to fly a Challenger 800 for a part 135 gig and really wants to take it. The problem is that he wants to eventually make it to a major (SWA, America West, Jet Blue, FedEx, UPS....) but isnt sure if having no prior 121 time will hurt him. He can either go to a regional or to this 135 gig. The deal with this 135 gig is that it will pay over twice as much as any regional and he will upgrade fairly quick. I personally think he would be able to go anywhere that was hiring with that type of experience. However, there is a lot of competition out there for these jobs at the majors and it seems like this could be an issue. Any insight would be appreciated!
