Since I have at least 15 days off a month, and I'm living on peasant wages at Lakes, I'm thinking of getting a part-time job. Only problem is that I need something that is flexible and fun. Sorry, I won't flight instruct. Anybody have any ideas?. Yes, I have thought about being an escort and a salsa dancer.

Does anybody know the limit where, I can file for low income? Don't we get some kind of break?

Thanks People

Cornelius,
Why not pick up some open time? I made way more money as an FO at Great Lakes than I have at Air Willy. Don't bother with food stamps, etc. You don't qualify. I don't qualify and I'm on unemployment, que passe?. Also, if you know of any part time flying jobs out in Denver, an ex-Laker friend of mine who is on furlough from Air Willy is looking for some stick time...PM me if you know of anything.

Once a Laker always a Laker.

Steve

PS. Are you guys still short of E120 FOs? I hear that Pommy is hiring back furloughed ex-Lakers to fill in the low spots.

AWAcoff, I have 3 people underneith me in the EMB-120, and my schedule next month doesn't look good. I have a 4 day, and 2 2day trips, and the last half of August is HRSV. We actually have a reserve system in the Brakillya. I have heard rumors of a new EMB-120 CA class since there may be some captains leaving soon. One more thing, there is no open time in the EMB-120.

I do have a friend who is senior in the EMB-120 and will be upgrading soon in the B-1900 so he hopefully will give me some trips while he gets my reserve so he can study.


I'm based out of CYS and live in Fort Collins so I have no clue what's going on down in DEN for flying jobs. Sorry.

Pomeroy did hire back some ex-lakers, but only to teach ground school, sim, and checkrides. That was in May and those guys are not here anymore.

House-X, hows that new omputer treating you snizat!

Peace in the East.

You want a decent part time job that doesn't require a set schedule, then try getting a job mowing the grass along the runways out at a local airport. Its not glamorous, but it doesn't require a lot of physical activity, you get to work on your tan, and you don't have to deal with customers or bosses. Just watch out for pilots that can't keep it on the centerline:D

Off-time jobs

What are your non-aviation quals?

I've heard of pilots who are substitute teachers. I can't quite believe this myself, but I have heard that you don't necessarily need a degree in ed to be a substitute teacher in some school systems. I had students at Mesa nine years ago who were substitute teachers in the Farmington, New Mexico school system. It blew my mind when at least one told me he didn't have a bachelor's degree. And, they were not CFIs, either.

There was a poster on the old board last summer who was a practical nurse before he became a pilot. Granted, that would require training if you're not an L.P.N. already. I just throw it out as food for thought.

Depending on your skills, maybe you can temp in offices. Temping can pay alright money and maybe provide benefits, too.

Just a couple of ideas that I hope will help.

Substitue teaching is the SHIZZIT...

Subsituting is where it's AT!! Here's the deal, you typically have to pay a $25 processing fee to the school board after you fill out your application(which is very simple). Your substituing agreement is only good for 1 semester, so every semester, you must renew by paying $25. All you have to have to qualify is to have completed at least 2 years of college, so all you degree guys are set. On the application, you put down the classes you would like to teach PE, MATH, and if they need you, they will call you. What's nice is, if you will substitute anything, they will practically call you EVERYDAY, and if you have a day off, then come in, if not, say no. They typically pay $75 a day, and all you do all day is read PLAYBOY stuck in your FLIGHT TRAINING magazine. You never teach, just hand out assignments, or show a video, nothing exciting. If your an over-achiever, teach them a little something about flying, you will quickly become known as the "laid-backl" substitue. They have professional subs who, if they have a degree or something in the class they're teaching, will teach, but you really NEVER have to. It's cake, I'm starting a cargo job soon, and if I don't get a job flying pipeline during the day, I'm going back to substituting.

Work at night

I have a cush job at night answering the phones and basically keeping the lights on so the outfit can call themselves a 24 hr business.

I contract fly for people during the day while I'm on furlough.

I sleep... well I guess I get to sleep at home sometimes but usually its at work or at some airport FBO.

I have no life... so come to think of it don't listen to any of my suggestions!

By the way Cornelius, I miss your old avatar. The dude with the Marlboro is just not the same.

I'm gonna apply to the hockey rink in Fort Collins, and with any luck they need a Zamboni driver. I did that awhile back and its pretty fun. Is there any rule against drinking before driving the zamboni. It only has a rotating 8 ft stainless steel blade on the bottom so I couldn't get myself in too much trouble.

Substitute teaching isn't for me, but sometype of offfice temp job sounds like it might be all right.
