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?

Who would Option 4 be?

I would take the immediate PIC time.

Yeah, well I've got a wife and a baby on the way..28K a year is pretty much a last resort type job.
