I have about 6 hours and it has been awesome. Landed the diamond and cessna a couple of times so far and learning slow flight and some other stuff.
Where I got it is 100-140 an hour for the plane and 40 per hour for instructor. All together it is going to cost around 5 grand. I have it budgeted at 500 a month so hopefully I will have it within a year.
Good luck on getting yours but it is expensive and you need a good flow of money to do it.
A lot of people become instructors so they can log up hours flying with someone, while that someone else pays for the plane during that time. Or you can just be rich and have your own plane. Ex-military is definitely the best way to go about it.
LMAO seriously? Thats not nearly enough hours. Up here in Canada anything below 1500 they won't even look at you and thats for a small B1900 or king air. I dont really like the whole delta connection accademy thing that they have in the states because as a pilot you don't gain any real experiance. (See the Buffalo crash) I like the way it is set up here in that once you get your licence you need to take smaller steps until you reach the big stuff. Most of the fun you will have is in the smaller more hands on and diffucult flying anyways. Once you reach the stage of airline stuff you become more of a system manager but you need all of the knowledge that you picked up when you flew the smaller stuff. Anyways thats my quick take on it, there is a lot of stuff thats fucked up in this industry but its worth it best office view in the world.
