Low flight hour jobs


Recommended Posts

Any creative suggestions for jobs for commercial pilots with low flight hours besides CFI, especially in the Montana area? 

I'll be going to flight school for MT national guard this fall and am trying to figure out how best to leverage the commercial license I'll get into a civilian job after training. From the flight schools and FBOs I've talked to, heli CFIs and commercial pilots aren't particularly in demand in the area.

I recommend getting all the Guard time you can. If they ask, volunteer. Look for ADSW opportunities that can help you build hours (like fire fighting). You should be able to build time quickly.

Have you talked to Billings Flying Service at all? After flight school you might be qualified to sit in the right seat and hold the PIC's coffee, but they might at least pay you.
