Nothing around GSO, unfortunately. Lotsa contractors all chasing the same few seats.Aside from them, you may want to stroll up the road to Greensboro and ask around there.
Sim for a 58? Don't tell me that the insurance companies are requiring it now.Snakum said:Nothing around GSO, unfortunately. Lotsa contractors all chasing the same few seats.
Unless, of course, you have 250 PIC B-58 and are sim current on it. If that's the case ... I can help.
(I hate insurance companies. I'll be in the right seat till I'm so old I can't pass a medical. )
There is a well-known, local guy who wants to contract on the Barons when he can (excellent pilot and a good guy), and he has almost 1000 B-58 PIC, in addition to prolly 4000 total. The insurance company said "No sim ... no go."Sim for a 58? Don't tell me that the insurance companies are requiring it now.

Thanks for any info.
Gotta love insurance companies. They will insure a guy with 1500 hours to be PIC in an RJ but will not let a 9000 hour guy fly a Baron that he has 1000 hours PIC in, Gotta love bean counters huh?Snakum said:There is a well-known, local guy who wants to contract on the Barons when he can (excellent pilot and a good guy), and he has almost 1000 B-58 PIC, in addition to prolly 4000 total.

If I had 250 hours B-58 PIC (not B-55 mind you) and a week at Simcom, I'd get the seat over him, even if I only had 500 hours. Can you believe that crap?
I brought in resumes from two FlightInfo members earlier this year, one an airline pilot and with (again) hundreds of hours B-58 PIC. Insurance said "Don't bother unless you're going to send them to school."
It's a Baron fer Crissakes!
:uzi: [Insurance Companies]
Profile is one of those companies you never hear anything good about. Even when you allow for ticked off pilots and the "sour grapes" types there isnt usually this much smoke without an ember or two lurking around. Probably good advice from G-forceG-force said:You would be well advised to avoid at all costs Profile Aviation Services since back in the mid 1990's they were doing on-demand charter with no PT. 135 certificate,had atleast a couple of accidents,bent some metal,did not hear of any injuries.They were supposed to have acquired a PT.135 certificate a couple of years ago.They also were operating aircraft,for #88,Dale Jarrett,the NASCAR driver,don't know if that is still the case.Would you really want to fly for someone who cuts corners like this outfit?????????I don't believe I would,it could mean certificate action by the FEDS!!!!!
