Why don't you tell your "buddy" that the going rate for that type of flying is $250/day plus expenses and the owner picks up the gas and oil. What a great way for your "buddy" to be able to use his aircraft!

Too bad I am not "lucky" enough to take advantage of this! I am digging a ditch in my lawn. One lucky person can help me and I'll let them be lucky enough to run through the sprinklers! Give me a break! Pay your own way!

Im in, do I have to pay for oil too? I am talking to Bank of America about getting a small personal loan to pay for this.

Outstanding response on so many levels!

Brevity is the soul of wit.

Great use of 'Americana' in your slam.

Doesn't this thread highlight all the scams/pitfalls on the climb to an aviation career?

How exactly does this qualify as an "Employment Opening"?

I can only hope that this is just a bit of creative prose but in todays climate-I bet this is legit. Get his fax number and send him some "blow me". Or better yet since his email is there sign him up for some creative marketing.

Damn, I think I'd rather pay the money for a qualified pilot to do that job.
The only pilot you'll get with that lousy offer is some greenie with a still-wet private cert.

Your buddy's Cherokee will probably end up somewhere at the bottom of the ocean as an exciting new reef for SCUBA divers to explore.

Your friend's a moron. He's too chickensh** to do it alone, so he decides to see if he can dupe a pilot into paying for the gas and oil for 30 hours?

he's not just a moron. he's an a$$hole.
