Hi folks, first of all let me wish you all a happy new year, as most of us do, or at least I like to think that way, at the beginning of the year I set my goals, which mostly happen to concern aviation, this coming year's goal is landing a job flying a B737 my dream airplane, although I am aware of the fact that even if the aviation market seems to be recovering, achieving this year goal is going to be tough to say the least!!!!! one thing that I have thought to improve my chances, besides keeping on flying and building some valuable PIC jet time, is to invest in a type rating, go to a flight school, I thought about aeroservice in miami, and get it out of the way. Now a little piece of advice from the guys who have been around for a little longer than me, do you think that a self-sponsored type rating is a valuable option, that it will improve my chances of getting on with an airline flying that specific airplane or that a type rating might hurt me in the long run since some airlines claim they prefer unexperienced pilots? Keep in mind that I only have just over 2000hrs even though 1200hrs in jets, Lear 20 and 30 series of whom about 300 as PIC.
Thanks for your willingness and to all of you and your families HAPPY NEW YEAR
