- Total Time
Hey, if you're a little bit older and have "been down that road before", then that's fine. That's one of the reasons that we're looking for a younger guy. If somebody has a pretty good amount of total time but not enough to upgrade, then it might fit their needs for making some quick cash.Storm Chaser said:Well just to set the record straight there Spark.....69 K is almost 70k plus my company paid for all my transportation, provided me with a cell phone that I could call international and they footed the bill. Granted it was a company based in the states and that is why I had to pay taxes, but then again if you added in my private driver and cell phone...I would think that adds up to just about 70k if not more (TO FLY A CESSNA 340). Oh yeah....no contract either.
I dont want to waste my time and get into a argument here. I just think your requirments are a little high for what you have to do and where you have to do it.
I can sit here and add up all the little perks as well; They give every company executive ("executives" also includes us nosepickin' pilots) a lap-top the first day we step in the door. We also get "the phone deal." We also get perdiem (I just spent three nights in Nice,FR at $167/day). There's also an annual bonus.
The bottom line is; you can sit there and believe everything that you watch on CNN or FOX, or you can "take a chance", make some quick cash and just call it quits when you've had enough.
Contrary to what the US news might have you believe, the "entire Middle East" isn't in a state of chaos. On that same note, how often do you hear of terrorist acts being committed in Kuwait?
