I think I might have an original question for you guys ... I'm an A&P/IA for the last 23 years, mostly on piston powered singles and light twins, with a little turbine experience in the last 5 years. I've also had my pilots license for 24 years, finally finished up my commercial license 2 years ago, looking finish my instrument this winter, and wanting to transition to a flight career. Nothing new there, I know, but here's where I differ from a lot of other people I see posting here ... I have no desire to fly for regionals, airlines, or even corporate. My passion has always been with small airplanes, jobs like glider towing, banner towing, flying skydivers, giving rides, aerial surveying, crop dusting, bush pilot, etc. have always been the ones that interested me. The biggest airplane I get excited about flying would be a Beaver or Otter on floats. I think my perfect job would be flying part time and wrenching party time. So, I guess my question to you guys is of anyone does this? Is it possible to make a career out of entry/mid-level flight positions? Or does a person need to work their way up into the airlines to make decent paycheck?
