Where are you looking in the Southeast?Ride High said:Anyone know of anyone hiring in the southeast. I have recently moved and trying to find a local job. Went to some airports but nobody is talking. Hope the Delta guys aren't getting them all. thanks
Not to sound like an a$$ Ride High but is that 100 PIC King Air time truly PIC? Most insurance companies that I know wouldn't let you get near the left seat in a King Air with only 1000 Total. I just find it very hard to believe that you are flying King Air as PIC. If so you better have proof of some sort of training from FSI, Simuflite, or whoever that can substantiate the qualifications that you state.Ride High said:Quals are about a 1000tt 100pic turbine king air and 300 multi. I know its not much but trying to avoid the regionals

I would imagine that most flight departments feel the same way that I do, and not really believe your statement of being the real PIC of a King Air. I think you are doing yourself a grave disservice and are probably screwing yourself out of some jobs up the road by making statements that many would not believe.
With only 1000 TT you might want to go do the CFI bit for awhile.
You are not the PIC. You are being supervised by the Chief Pilot. You haven't even been to school for the aircraft for Christ sake.Ride High said:The PIC King Air time is supervised by the chief pilot. I have been in full control of the aircraft and at times he has been in the back with passengers. When in this position I operate as "single pilot". He is an ATP with about 14000 hours. He is not an instructor and the operation is Part 91. I have not been to a school other than his checkout and training from the ATP. How should I log this time to not look out of the ordinary? I know the systems pretty well and continue to study because I know people will dig deep. This has been the greatest learning experience and I have learned more in the last 8 months then I the last two years. I do not want this to be for nothing because I have become a much better pilot with much more room to grow. thanks for any suggestions
Technically, you are correct. If you've done 3 takeoffs and landings in the King Air, you are "qualified" to act as PIC, provided it's not a BE350 which, if memory serves, requires a type rating.Ride High said:So is this time good for nothing because a lot of other experienced guys are telling me its totally legal to log the time as long as the regs are met and not the insurance. They tell me that the insurance is for job position but that logging the time legally is different. I am not trying to argue but clarify. These guys have lots of corporate experience.
Ok, now I'm really curious. Please tell me what you did or how they qualified you as SIC on a 604. I'm not trying to be critical and I know it can be done. I know one Fortune 100 company they hired 700 hour pilots as SICs on GV's. I also know they went through a full initial at FSI to do so.Ride High said:Thanks for the advice. I am not putting it on my resume as turbine PIC or king air PIC. I will leave that until they want to see my log book when talking to them in the future. I just wanted to put some of my quals. out to allow anyone that could help see that I had more than C172 experience. I also have about 15 hrs Part 91 SIC challenger 604 time but I would not dare put that in my log book or bring it up to interviewers. That is just for experience.
