Beavis and Butthead!
Yes sure, the solution to not having a job, is to go and pay thousands to sit in a cockpit, when you are finish, you can go home, sit with Flightsim on your computer, and still without a job, because next one has already paid for taking over your seat!
And so it goes, again and again!
Some time ago, I met a guy, who was trying to be Mr Smart Guy at his FTO, the guy was nice enough, but his attitude made me boil! However I was there on business, so I kept my opinions for myself!
He presented his grand plan, that he wanted to present for his company, this FTO have several Jet aircraft, and he has plan, brilliant idea, was to start a cargo company, and have the First Officers all pay for TR and Line training, they we he had worked it out, the money they would be paid would cover the pay of the Captain!
Swabber, in your profile it says you are 20, well if that is true, what is your problem? You got time to make an excellent aviation career, do some choices, move your a....e, do a FIC, make some contacts, or you just want it easy, somebody holding your hand to the cockpit?
I do not regret what I have done in my life, contrary, very happy with most my choices, but if I had gone back, and gone for aviation career at 20, as I started originally, vow... I tell you what, I would for sure found myself a job, somewhere, anywhere, most likely I would have been instructing!
Now attitude is that, things are not good enough for you, to many to lazy to get out of bed and find themselves something!
I mean, say I would have been a recruiter, some guy from this thread sent me a PM this morning, saying Hey Dude, do u know abt linetraining!
What you think you going to get if you can't even address people correctly, or at least write properly!
Sorry Swabber and friends, stop worrying and start living! But know that P2F is going to be the final killer of your chance of getting any good jobs!
Now isn't that a splendid idea? Imagine a world with only paying FO's?
Than you might say, that will never happen! Maybe true, maybe not all, maybe 50 - 75% of them, where will that leave you than, even with 500 hours experience on type?
