I've been approved for WIA funds for a type rating in the Lear, which model should I type in? Was thinking the 45 or 60. I don't know which ones cover which so any help would be greatful before I call and make the choice.
Lear 60 hands down. I can tell you this, I have 5-6 friends that fly for Lear 60 companies as a salary full time pilot. A few of them do about $35,000 a year as contract captains in the Lear 60...$600-$700/day is the going rate around here...there's a ton of work all year round as a contract captain on the Lear 60. There is absolutely nothing going on with Lear 40 series. There's only like 3 that I know of in all of south Florida. My friends fly Lear 45 N170LS at Hop-a-jet, flightawre.com it, its been sitting for 56 days straight.Any company's out there looking for a new typed pilot on the Lear as a FO? I'm going to school in May so if I can line something up I'll get my 8410 on the 60 or 45 which ever works for your company. PM me if you would like talk about this. Thanks.
