Who wants to buy a block of about 35 hours of multi PIC time for $75 an hour?



I have a trip in a Piper Navajo form KFXE (S. FL.) to Madrid Spain. The trip will take about three days going across the N. Atlantic, I've done it in a King Air 90 before and it is a great experience, but a long one.
You'd have to buy an airline ticket home, but they aren't too expensive this time of year. $75 an hour is a good bit cheaper then buying a block from a flight school, and you'll get the time much quicker and have a great story.

PM me if interested, the trip leaves this weekend, and if your further up the East coast that's no problem being that it's on the way. Thanks

If you pay me $100 an hour I will give you some duel on the crossing if you like! We will not be in the Nat Tracks but I can bring along some charts and teach you how to plot one! :D

Figured if you are double dipping you can afford some ab-initio training!!;)


Kidding aside it sounds like fun for somebody. Watch your liability insurance though, charging for the other seat is probably not covered in your insurance rider for the crossing.

So...you're flying halfway across the world. You had nobody who wanted to go with you, now you're trying to charge someone for the privilege? Riiiiiight.

That's almost as good as a CJ1 ad I read on here a while back. "It's my jet and I won't pay you. I wont feed you. I wont house you. You can't log it, but it's great experience." Yeah...right.

I thought I had it bad taking a 150 from Washington state to Florida.

lots
I just don't see the problem with this offer...people shell out these kind of bucks everyday to buy multi at ATP or wherever and they are just burning holes in the sky. At least this way someone can get a good solid block of PIC multi time and some good, real world flying experience. Leave the guy alone!!

Logging of time

You can log whatever you want. You just can't use it for currency or towards a rating. Log it all.

Buy a plane

A friend and I bought a piper apache and flew the heck out of it one year. We had an autogas STC so we burned ARCO's best and did all our own maintainence. I was an MEI so we both logged the time. Occaisionally we would bring in a new partner and I would train him in it. While flying it the cost was around $15/hour. In the end however we sold it for a profit and it ended up costing us nothing. We each built about 300 hours in it. My partner only had time in the apache when he got on with Horizon.

Thanks for some of the replys guys, I figured I would get some slack, but like some one said, It's cheaper then building time at ATP or Ari-Ben Aviator.

I am a current MEI not that it would be a problem, but I do have a lot of real world experience I could share with a low time guy who is looking to buy a block of multi. I found some one for that trip already, a perfect candidate. His father is a pilot for Delta, and as soon as he meets the mins. he's in, plus he has a free ride home from Spain on Delta.


Anyway, I have to ferry a C-402 from S. FL to Columbia (SKCG) this coming week, if anyone wants to come with, it's $50 an hour, should be about 7 hours, but were working on the Cuban overflight right now. Thanks .

Tell him to bust open a newspaper, he may be in for a shocker. I think I heard something about Delta not doing too well
