need advice on hours


Recommended Posts

I am going to start my cfII training in about a month, and I am seeing a potential problem with getting from 170 hrs to the insurable 300 hrs. I dont have a problem with relocation, i will do whatever is necsissary to gain experience. I need some advice on the cheapest way to get from 200 to 300 hrs, or will i just have to pay the $23,000 on top of my cfII of 57,000 and just rent and fly?

 

If you havent noticed, the flight school i am looking at does not have any r22s, at the moment. From what i understand the sfar73 course will give me another 50 hrs for $8000, but will i need 200 hrs, and sfar73 to instuct on the Robinsons?

 

 

Is it going to be more difficult to get a cfII job with only 300cb exp @ 170 tt, and if i am going to have to just pay for 100 hrs to get to 300 hrs will it do me anygood to get those last 100hrs in a r22?

 

 

Thanks in advance for your response.

Three options (and there may be more):

 

1) Work for a school that doesn't use Pathfinder insurance - no 300-hour requirement.

 

2) Find a school that's willing to hire you and use you in other capacities - rides, tours, photo flights, ferry flights - until you get to 300 hours.

 

3) Find a school that flies something other than Robinson, then spend the money to transition so you can teach in their aircraft. While there's no guarantee of a job, an upright operator will gladly offer such a deal if you are a good candidate.

 

Hope this helps!
