Aidan and I recently got together to answer some of the most interesting and frequently-asked questions we’ve received over the past few months.
In this first Q&A session we talk about:
- The Oddball Pilot Network
- Becoming a commercial pilot in your 40s or 50s
- The minimum flight time necessary to get your first job as a pilot (in the U.S. or abroad)
- The importance of making personal contact with potential employers
- Whether you can be overeducated for an oddball flying job
- Whether Era Alaska is still looking for pilots (and what they’re looking for)
- Getting flying jobs in other countries
- Transitioning to the Cessna 406
- Humanitarian aid flying
