Cessna 525A co-pilot 7/8/2005



[font=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif] I am a 26 year old pilot with a CJ2 and little over 3500 hours.. I do a lot of volunteering for angel flight america 3*4 times a week and sometimes the flights get boring. I live in the LA area. My aircraft is based at Burbank.. I am looking for someone that is wanting to get some FREE time in a JET... I won't charge for anything. You will be responsible for your own food.. I am home the same day. You WONT get paid for this at all. IF anything you REALLY should be paying me. lol If you are interested e-mail me at ZippyBoi78@aol.com Don't e-mail me asking the requirements... you either know them or don't. The CJ2 is a single rated plane and I will be PIC.. You will just be helping out and learning.[/font]

If this dude where at my airport here, i'd consider doing it once or twice just for the 'ride' (hey, i can't say i've been on a bizjet yet), but other than that i wouldn't bother wasting my time.

Go with him. Build the trust and become his friend. Admire his terrific authority of the airplane without being cynical. Be helpful, accomplishing all the BS he will ask of you with a smile on your face and thanking him for the opportunity to fly in his cockpit.

Insist on operating the radios on the leg home. Take an alternately surly and then friendly tone with controllers and be completely unpredictable. Ask other aircraft on the freq what they had for lunch and if they know Joe Edisto, insisting he works for their company, make sure to be argumentative. ALWAYS use your full callsign, ie: CitationJet November blah blah blah for each and every communication. Insist on wearing your oxygen mask through 10,000 feet and leave the interphone on at all times. Make sure to say "annnnd" before each call and "checking in" and "here we go" and a very obnoxious "seeeeeeya!!!" for all communications.

Then at 2 grand on the way into the airport, dump the cabin, and tell him you always wondered what that did. When you get to the FBO, make sure to tell him how much fun you had and that you want to do it again real soon.

It's also not really worth a flight up to his airport. I'm here in Oklahoma :)

Should the opportunity ever arise near me were i wouldn't have to spend a considerable amount of time or money getting too, i'd definitely do it.

Dunno?
its probably BS. He just wants to hook up with some young and eager guy who will do anything for some JET TIME. He might let you log some of it for a little overtime duty!! :(

Let's see... 26 years old with your own CJ and so "lonely" you have to run an ad to find someone to fly with you?

I'll bet he's a real hoot to fly with.:rolleyes:

Mind you he's a 26 year old with his own CJ2, and he's too cheap to pay for someone to sit right seat. That says enough about him right there!

While I agree that the guy writing this seems to have a major ego, and he's pushing free "jet" time that doesn't exist, there is actually a good reason to fly with him (if you can stand it) - the cause of Angel Flight is really a good one. Copilots are required on missions so you'd be fulfilling a vital role in making a flight happen.

Holy $hIt! I'm in love! :)

That's the first thing that struck me. You can't pull up single-pilot in a frigg'n Baron around here without being mobbed by CFIs and career-changing old farts begging to ride along. So if this is a fat chick ... she must be a REAL hogger (not that I mind, personally). If it's a guy ... he wants a young CFI with wrap-around shades, hair gel, and who says "Dude" a lot to play hide-the-salami on overnights.

In all ... pretty eff'n sad that he/she/it had to advertise and bribe someone to be his/her/it's friend. :D

Getting up and reading that got a good laugh, thanks for getting my day off to a good start, but it can only go downhill from here.

Really? Why are copilots required on single-pilot aircraft? Seems like they're limiting the number of people that will be able to help out.

How do you know that the jet time doesn't exist? It wouldn't be the first time that a family owned a jet and the son or daughter had the priviledge of being checked out in it.

I'm thinking daddy is using the angle flight time as a tax write off for little Johnny's PIC jet time building. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Co-Pilots are not required on Angel Flights. I fly several Angel Flight missions a month and am often single pilot.
