There are people willing to do both and there might be some companies that do not mind this arrangement?

Re: Midlife Career Change

Offering to work for free does several things: 1) It offends more sensible owners and their employees who’s livelihood is based on offering a service for price. They often have to deal with bottom feeding competition and chisel charters constantly trying to undercut them. 2) It shows that you don’t...

Re: Midlife Career Change

Those who still have jobs are often seeing companies cutting wages and working conditions because now they can because they have a pile of over qualified candidates ready to take your spot... and they love to say "you should just be thankful you have a job" If your employer hasn't taken t...

Re: Midlife Career Change

Please don’t offer to fly for free. That will close more doors than it will open in this very very small industry. Hi, can you elaborate on this? I was not aware that this is a thing. What typically happens when a pilot offers to fly for free? Your pay at the end of the year is 0.00$ But you get co...

Re: 250hr Pilot Advice

There are many ways to skin a cat, if it isn't something you want to do, then don't do it. When it comes to striving for success, this has to be some of the worst advice I've ever heard. I did what I didn't always want to do for a period of time, so I can do whatever I want, today. You do you. More...

Re: 250hr Pilot Advice

I hope young people on this thread realize "cleaning toilets" is both an example and an anology for the principle being shared. Yes, I did do it in an early job. Yes, it's humbling. The principle for a young person, starting on a career path in any profession, is to approach a job with th...

Re: 250hr Pilot Advice

Why do people in this horrible economy with all the airlines tanking want to work for complete shit pay at the bottom for maybe a chance in many years to sit possibly at the right seat to make more shit pay doing that. This is even if you get a slot. Why not get a decent job make money and rent pla...

Re: 250hr Pilot Advice

btw, i do have someone cleaning my shitter. i follow the law and i pay them well. people decide for themselves what they want to get in exchange for their labour. Educate yourself, research so you neither price yourself out of a job nor get marginalized/exploited on a terrible deal.

Re: 250hr Pilot Advice

Clean toilets. I did at 20. You learn a lot by cleaning someone else's shit spread all over a bathroom. Maybe that's beneath too many 20 something's. Hey everyone! You should clean toilets like this guy did because he is such a role model. Not everyone. Maybe just you. Might reduce your whining: ht...

Re: 250hr Pilot Advice

The irony of this industry is that for the past 3 years(right up until Covid hit) all the attributes of hard work, pay your dues etc were thrown out the window. Seneca brats With rich parents and other entitled metrosexuals with 200 hrs got hired at Jazz etc and as soon as the ink was dry on their ...

This includes Chinese propaganda right? Since you don't let China tell you what to think, you agree with not believing what they say.

Re: What next?

You might be too optimistic that the skydive gig is even really there to begin with.

Who's going skydiving right now?

The whole tourism and recreation industry is toast. I suggest you check that place again.

Re: I love job requirements like these...

Well those people who just can’t cut it, get culled out pretty quickly don’t they. Kids have no idea, but you are right, they learn quick.

Re: I love job requirements like these...

I am definitely the old guard, but I will say this: when you spend tens of thousands to learn to fly, wrack your brain around all the rules, be incredibly sharp on the job or else, you do tend to think somebody must owe you something. It is hard getting to the bigs during most times, even if you ge...

poor guy sounds jealous of younger folks making better decisions and getting better jobs costing them less than he did at lower hours tbh. Oh dear, if only you knew. Jealousy isn't a factor whatsoever and you don't have a clue of my age. Both are assumptions on your part and at the end of the day w...
