This was me about a month a go, maybe some of you guys remember:

If you were a 22 year old pilot, with a Lear Jet type rating and had the following chances of employment:

1- Fly SIC in a Lear Jet under 135 (cargo) with a chance to upgrade in a year or so. Salary between 28K-32K a year, 10 days on 4 days off, full benefits.
2- Fly PIC in a EMB-110 for a cargo op, make 28k a year, full benefits, flying 4 or 5 days a weeks depending on the route.
3- Fly SIC in a Lear Jet under 135 (Air ambulance) no word on the upgrade time, 5 days on 2 days off, full benefits.
4- Fly PIC in a BE99, make 28K a year, full benefits, 5 day route, full benefits.

which one would you chose and why?

Nah, no problem. I'll forget it when I hop in the mighty Piper Warrior on this 105 degree afternoon. Who needs a Lear anyways when ya got 160hp and a 400ft/min climb?






On a serious note: It's really nice to see someone post something other than a complaint or flame for a change. Congrats again.

Yeah, I'de rather be doing 400ft/min climb. Oh wait, actually...umm...no no, 6000ft/min is better I think. LOL
Where you the one last week that the tower said " Warrior XXX sir I need you to keep your speed up please, I have a 200 knot lear behind you. Lear XXX (me) I need you to slow down to 150 sir, I have a slow aircraft on final." hehehe. Just kidding.
Thanks.
