No idea. I have only held regular lines for about 4 months out of the near 5 years I have been here, as such I have come to know only 11 days off a month. Not enough for me to get a second job even if there were jobs available in SE Michigan. (which there are not any to be found anyways)

Food stamps!

Hey, I heard that 2 American Eagle pilots went together (don't know if this was recent or what) to where ever you go for this, in full uniform and applied for food stamps. Not sure if they were trying to make a point but I heard that Eagle got hold of this and fired the two for inappropriate wearing of their uniform. Anyone know if this whole story is true?

Good idea, and I just checked...I actually make about $170 too much :-/ Funny thing is this ammount is less than my actual grocery bill per month, so I guess if I made less money, and got the food stamps, I'd actually come out ahead and have more money in the end...sad but true.

anyone else got anything?

GlenQ-

Back in 2001, as a F.O. with a good schedule, I worked as Substitute Teacher. The money was good and the schedule was flexible. Some days I was there for only a couple of hours and still got paid for the entire day. I eventually ended up working with special needs kids. Gratifying work and a paycheck. If memory serves, I made 100.00 per day. I got a 25.00 bonus for having a 4 year degree. The only reason I stopped was that I upgraded as soon as I could and my schedule went in the toilet.
Good luck-

Oddly enough, I sell pilot shirts www.garffshirts.com

Got a laptop...and wondered how can i make some money with it....after all, i spend 100's of hours clicking and looking at nothing...So, came up with that....made an ecommerce site(from a template)...and 3 years later its still going...the trouble with it is I have a tangible product. Look at FI...no tangible product...come up with a cool idea for a website of some sort...and you wont have to mess with shipping, receiving, returns, exchanges and correspondence with customers etc.......


Goodluck!

My first year I delivered pizzas. And after I upgraded and was bored sitting reserve, I delivered pizzas again. Not great money, but with tips it was more than enough to buy groceries for my fam for a month.

Hope you find something and if its good, be sure and lets us know!

Sometimes you can drive cars for a dealer that need to be transported. Check with local dealers.

I'm selling MonaVie.

I was approached twice before I became a distributor.

Yea it is a multi-level business but not many companies are not multi level. Look at an airline F/O>Capt> Asst Chief Pilot>Chief Pilot>Director of Flight Ops> Director of Airline Ops> Vice President of the Company> President of the Company. I'm sure I missed some titles.

I started selling MonaVie two months ago and making $200 a month. I have been working very part time in my business about 20 hours so far.(Vacations, kids going back to school, football season etc)

This is a perfect business for a pilot. First the start-up cost is zero $$.
The product is shipped directly from the warehouse to the consumer. There is no costs for inventory and no costs for storing the inventory.

Selling MonaVie is considered a home based business. Every trip I go on I bring a couple of MonaVie Emv drinks. Since my MonaVie office is at the house, mileage to and from the airport is a write off along with any other business costs on the trip. The tax benifit of a home based business can also lead to other write-offs. A percentage of electricity, water, gas, home phone, insurance, security monitoring, carpet cleaning for your home office to name a few.
It is safe to say Washington DC wont be lowering our taxes anytime soon.

Your business travels with you. If you change bases or go to a new airline in a new city, your business and residual income goes with you. There is no starting up new business contacts in the new area.
How much idle time do you spend at the hotels during your pairings? You could be working your business.

We are all one day closer to losing our medical, our license or furlough? How is your company STD/LTD?
For those luck to stay at the airline and retire, how's the airline pension?

I personally know of a guy selling MonaVie that is making over $7000 a week. He is a phone call away if I have question about my business since he is making money with me.
The pilot that started me selling MonaVie is making $1000 a month after 4 months. He is also a phone call away if I have questions about my business.
Here is a link to the income of MonaVie distributors in 2008. http://media.monavie.com/pdf/corporate/income_disclosure_statement.pdf


You can work your business a little for tax write-offs or work the business hard and make being an airline pilot a hobby.

Monavie is a billion dollar company. They sponsor a car in the Indy curcuit and are the drink of the Boston Red Socks to name a few.

Pm me if you are interested.
