Hi All, I'm almost done with my commercial training and I have about 300 hrs total time - all in Alaska (plus approx. 250 in ultralights, but I'm not sure if that counts). My goal is to get a flying job in Alaska. I don't have much interest in flying for major airlines, but instead is attracted to bush flying, float planes, and may be light twins. My question is how many hours (plus what other requirements?) do I need to have to be able to get an entry level pilot's job? I'm interested in air taxi, flying for lodges, or ? I'd also like to know the entry pay scale in these places?
I'm a member of a flying club so can build time relatively inexpensive. I have a full-time cushy job that pays the bills meanwhile, but I wouldn't hesitate to leave it to pursue my flying dreams.
Any advice on how to better proceed to land that first flying job is highly appreciated!
