This has been discussed recently, but I would like some feedback on my particular situation.

I will need to hire a new FO in awhile. This job has always been held by low time guys, mostly with just some instructional experience and a little multi, some without even that. The last guy I hired actually had sim training and Westwind SIC time from a previous employer; I though he would be a shoo in with the insurance company, but apparently the office people had to do quite a bit of arm twisting to get him approved.

The boss will not pay more than entry level wages for this job; so I"m going to have to go with a low timer, but what is the insurance company realistically going to have to have to do this?

From my experience if they are recently in school on the airplane and qualified... you can get them insured. You may pay more for low timers though.......
