I graduated from one of the flight schools that some of you went to back in 2008. I put my flight and maintenance skills to work till I was laid off in early 2009. Unfortunately for my flying, I had already found my future spouse. So I looked for flying jobs that were close by, but flying jobs were hard to come by in 2009. So I took an industrial maintenance job, and have made really good money ever since. I have been watching the skies for years now. In a dumb ass move I let my CFI expire back in 2010, with the hope that some day I'd get my CFII to reinstate it. Fast forward to the present. I want to get back into flying (full time). I'm married with two kids, and a mortgage. Good news is that my student and car loans are almost paid off. I am located about an hour and a half away from MSP, and I'm hoping to get on with one of the regionals once I have enough hours. Thankfully my degree qualifies me for the 1000 hour RATP. So only 500 hours to go. I have been studying my butt off to get my CFII which will reinstate my CFI and MEI. I have a current BFR or whatever we call them now, and IPC. I have my FII and IGI completed, and the flying is coming back really quick. So the question is this, are there any jobs that would allow me to fly full-time and still stay married? Here in the Midwest there is not much flying in the winter time if I were to flight instruct full-time, air survey would require me to be gone too long, and there don't seem to be many 135 FO jobs around. Any suggestions?
