How much do these two type-ratings go for these days??? Anybody have a ball-park figure?? Got a friend with a low-paying regional airline, he's trying to be more "marketable". (I reconmended one of these two).

A 737 type rating will run you between 6 and $8000. That sometimes does and does not include lodging if you plan on doing the fast track program with one of the companies where you get it done in like 15-21 days.

Paying for a type rating is about as stupid as it comes with today's regionals.

Sit right seat, get turbine time, get out.

Yeah. Buying a type-rating is useless unless you've got enough hours to get hired at one of the fractionals (the GV) or Southwest.

He wants to either- go to a major, or that dream corporate job, whichever happens first.

Agree 100%, but he won't listen. Bust out the credit card, dropp several thousands of dollars on a G-V type, and then nobody calls because he has no time in type??

Anybody know the price of a G-IV or G-V??? I've heard several figures, from $32,000, to $45,000....Somebody outhere who actually flies the damn thing, and the place where you got it

GV/G550 type is roughly $60,000 from Flight Safety, list price at least. G-IV/G450 is slightly less. Add some differences training in there and you'll be paying for it, for sure. I understand that if you're a large corporate department or whatnot, the price is negotiated a bit..just like buying the aircraft I suppose.

My advice, work for an operator that'll give it to you for free, like mine did.

WOOOOOOOOOOW. Thanx, I guess this airplane is totally out of the question (unless he's got 5 credit cards).

Most carriers are interested in PIC jet time, not that you have some 757 rating. Yes corporate it may be a different story but this is for majors as far as I know. And remember, you can get the interview with Southwest without the type, but you have to have it before you can take offical empoyment (so yes it's best to have it already). Most of these guys want to see that you are a leader and that you are trainable and can easily adapt to their style or culture. It really is that simple. Didn't know the gulfstream rating was that expensive. That's crazy. And the same reason why I REFUSED to put myself $100,000 in debt to fly for an airline that couldn't give a damn about me.

Type ratings are worthless, unless you've been offered the job at Southwest. If you don't have any time in the actual airplane it doesn't matter.
