Are you freelancers still charging a day rate of 2500USD on the G650?
Has the CAE simulator in DXB lowered the recurrent cost?

Slightly off topic but some of you on this thread could shed some light if you don't mind. I'm a 777 captain looking to return Stateside and to corporate. Thinking to be a contract pilot. Previous corporate experience. What's the best type rating and how do I get into working for a daily rate? What's the best location or does it matter?

Self financing the type rating to go freelancing, does mean starting out with zero hours on type (presumably!), which would likely prohibit most freelance contract jobs, as most require some actual time (for insurance policy] and experience on actual type. Just something to consider.

I let a “Stateside” colleague respond with regards to best type rating, but I would have said GVI until recently, though with the new “high end” models entering the market the next year (G500 and Global 7000) that may the direction to go, as at least for a while the demand for time on type will not hold waters 😂.

Expect day rates in mentioned types around 2-3000USD + Business costs.

Good luck.
