I have lately been thinking of bying myself a typerating in order to get a job. I was very close to signing a contract on A320 rating including 120h linetraining but I changed my mind when questioning myself...what if this or that happens...what happens then with all my invested money? What happens after the linetraining if I cant continue since its time for the next "students" to begin their line training? Are my chances really better with "only" 120h on the type? Is it so much better that it is worth the risk?
What are your inputs? Is it worth the money if they cannot guaratee a job afterwards?
