I’d be will to bet that type rating will cost you somewhere in the neighborhood of 30k, at least!

Pft

First $80K is low pay. Second if someone can fly a 604 they can type the pilot.

What next? Do you have to pay for recurrent?

Buy a BMW instead.

Anybody thinking of going for this type of foolishness should have their head examined.

If your employer is looking to save money by you providing your own training, ask yourself: "What other areas are they going to be pinching pennies in?" Just as important to consider is what sort of a culture will you be involving yourself in? In my experience, they will cut corners on MX, push you to do all sorts of stupid stuff in the name of gettin er' done and pencil whip various training requirements; the list goes on and on.

One of those operators that no doubt has one of those "Whatever it takes!" signs hanging in the office.

Run!

What if they made you spend 80K for college and had a fleet of 727's, Airbus and three holer wide bodies and a starting pay of one third that?

haha. true dat.

They would call it Southwest Airlines.

It's no different than all the meatheads that have gone out and bought their 737 type so they could get the chance to interview.

It's the state of our industry. Pretty sad.

I let Uncle Sam spend his hard earned dollars for my college and flight training, so I would have no problems going to that outfit. Where do I sign up??

This corporate job would be perfect for you if you were retired. You've done it once, why not again? Except this time you'd write the check to be the babysitter, not the babysitee.

Not looking down on them at all. Just pointing out the hypocrisy. Everyone attacks PFT and all of these buy-your-own-type corporate outfits yet the same guys wouldn't hesitate to head over to Higher Power to buy a 737 type to get on at SWA. "But that's not really PFT." BS.

Pft

I've never heard of this PFT stuff. Can someone explain it to me? I think it would be a good idea to explore all the issues surrounding PFT. Perhaps we could start a thread on PFT. Maybe people have opinions on PFT. What do you all think? WS

You know, that is hard to answer in just a few sentences, so lemme tell a little story:

Once upon a time, at a flight school near you, there was a youngish man. At an early age, he was stricken by the dreadful SJS and since there really is no cure, other than reality, he ventured forth into the kingdom of the evil ruler Ornensteinum. Ornensteinum was an evil and sadistic man, but he was also a very clever man, since he had appointed to his court some soothsayers. These soothsayers, who was clever of the twoforkish tongue speak, regaled the young man, whose name was Pilotus Naivus Unsuspectus, henceforth shorted to the easier Pilotus, with tales of derring do, mana and untold riches. Of course, there was only the tiniest little catch.......................
