    Dude. Read the Jobs board. If you're willing to move there's a photo job in Wisconson that is generating no attention for some reason.

    I did read it and its probably because they want 100hrs of both flying and photo experience..

    McDonald's, or if your classy pick Arby's. You have to be rich to eat there.

    Most tow and drop jobs are 500 min. But he may have some luck with some less than legal skydiving ops

    Want to fly airships? It's a job, but that's about the only positive I could possibly say about it.

    It still counts towards ATP minimums.....After that... I've really got nothing positive to add.

    Honestly, it's a horrible job. I'd imagine something like Great Lakes without ever getting a day off work. Fun for about 6 months, then the worst thing you could imagine.

    Great Lakes offer a quick upgrade to TPIC. Not too many regionals can say that a FO can be Capt in a years time. But with the 1500 hr rule coming into play, upgrade may take a little longer. One of the better pilot groups out there. Incredibly low pay but if you can manage, GLA is not bad at all. All hands-on flying. They do NDB approaches. I imagine not too many people can and will want to do NDB approaches into non-towered airports.

    I was just comparing QOL of where I work to Great Lakes, which many people would say is probably one of the worst places to work. No harm intended towards the type of flying they do.

    Agree with what KSCessnaDriver said. GLA would be a 25K/Year decrease in pay for me, but I'd take it instantly over what I'm doing now. You can't put a price on quality of life.
