E-Bay listing: I'll pay you to go out with me

description: I am a great guy that just wants to meet some great girls. I figured the best way I could do this is actually pay you and make it worth my time. I will be willing to travel long distances to you, or you can come to my Chess club house which is brand new and even has a TV with cable. The only catch is is that you have to drive. I have never seen the need for it as it is toxic to our atmosphere. I promise we will have a quality time and you will get everything you desire and more

Starting bid: $0.01

Current bidder: MikeHawk

Dork doesn't even know how to read the regs. The 5 hour requirement is only for dual for the purpose for the issuance of a certificate or rating. I'm sure there are lots of pilots who own a twin without being able to fly it, just waiting for a loser to post to Ebay to get their free ME rating.

too bad when you post questions to ebay sellers, it doesn't automatically appear on the auction page.

I schooled him :)

First, I feel your pain. I really do, I've been there. But this is not doing anybody any favors. Flight Instructors, depsite their lofty responsiblity, are already on the backside of the demand curve, and command tiny compensation. Your offer of free instruction serves only to make the instructors across the field, as well as yourself, poorer. There ARE organizations that will hire you with minimal multi time. ******* actually pays you, instead of you paying them. And you'll have the most fun of your career. How 'bout that trick? Drop a resume to *******. You might be surprised.

But please, pull this auction down. For the good of fellow pilots, aviation, and humanity."

This stuff really fumes me...especially now that I'm on the short end of the CFI pay stick. Working for the man...I gotta get to be the man...

Still...when I do "free lance" stuff, I have no problem charging $35/hr ground or flight. I don't get it. Is there some place out there that doesn't charge people to get up to their CFI certificate(s)? I paid lots of money for good training to get where I'm at and I'll be d#mned if I'm going to give my time away.

Why can't this type of flight instructor understand that?

He's not hurting himself...he's hurting me and all the other instructors out there that realize their time is valuable.

okay...I think I'm done venting.......

What a joke...someone smack this guy...

If you think of anything else I can add in there let me know
How about: "You usually get what you pay for" ????? If this bozo will pay the student, what would be the quality of instruction????????

Random thoughts...

If he's giving instruction, there's no reason he should have to pay his "pro rata share."

Also, I would assume that the U of I is in need of instructors, seeing all of the hiring that is going on at the regional level.

He should have at least used a picture with him sitting in a semi-hole, or standing next to it...

Anyway... Maybe some of you Illini guys know him and can set him straight.

If any of you bought a twin, would you pay for some low time 20hr twin time CFI to teach you to fly YOUR airplane? I think the guy that bought the twin could easily find free instruction to trade for valuable twin time. Even better if the CFI is willing to pay me to teach me how to fly my new twinstar. It's simple supply and demand, I just wouldn't want to be the CFI

I'm sure some U of I guys will set him straight, and he will see the light.

Right ZS?

Q: Is the world coming to an end?

A: Yes, the pilot industry, it seems, has been overrun by overzealous CFI's looking for flight hours. They are desperate and will even resort to a threat of nuclear means if we do no oblige them of their multi time, the most recent threat, UVSC CFI's based out of PVU. With their 29 katanas and new senecas they rule the sky and keep a constant reminder that they are above you, either by runway incursions, near miss mid-air's, or just plain uncurtious flying habits. They will do anythingfor theirh flight hours and we must all protect ourselfs...
