    Flying Jobs

    My Name is James. I have my mulit instr comm. CFI. I have about 350 total time and are looking for help on how to become a bush pilot, will fly for food. Not looking to get anything real good at this time but hope to get the experience needed to continue to fly bush pilot. Any help one could give me would be great.

    James:
    Beg, Borrow or do what ever to build time. Most Part 135 Operators in Alaska
    require 1000 to 1500 Hrs. for insurance purposes. Good Luck.

    James,

    You can get a ton of tailwheel time flying banners over a summer. I have met a few guys who have done this in the past. I had about the same amount of time when I got a job flying skydivers for an outfit about 30 miles from RDU. You will fly quite a bit in the summertime. Since there are quite a few dropzones in FL, you might want to check that out. I was flying turbines (rt seat in a Casa 212 and PIC in a twin otter) almost the entire time I worked there. Good luck.
