I've been flying a King Air part 91 for two years now. I have over 1,000 hours in the King Air and over 2300 hours total. I got into aviation late in my life and I am married with children and can't afford to take a regional job. Everytime I talk to a company that's looking for Citation or Lear F.O's I get the same response, you don't have enough time or we need someone who is alraedy typed. Is it worth it to buy my own type rating and spend that kind of money to be more marketable? I see ad's for Citation 500 series type rating $6,000. I don't have that kind of money laying around but is it something to consider or am I crazy? Insurance companies are killing us. I remember, before 9/11, when my time was great for an F.O. corporate position.
