I'm getting back into flying after getting out of it 20 years ago. I had several really bad instructors who convinced me that no one who had a job in aviation had any respect for safety and or regulations. I'm currently working on my CFI and realize that when I do qualify to get a job doing anything else I'll probably still be 20 years out of instrument currency. I don't see the CFII as much of an option as even if you fly actual teaching your really not going to go up in the kind of weather you would face flying checks, freight, etc. So while I have my own opinion on how to gain real world experience and possibly even (gasp) have someone teach me something while doing it I'd like to hear from you. I'm assuming and or kind of hoping that most folks don't just get instrument current and go jump in a cherokee six with a sack of checks with no wx avoidance capability and just go at it. I'm sure this happens but there has to be a better way. Ideas?
