I don't, but I had a co-worker that did tailwheel and backcountry CFIing on his off-rotation and that seemed to work pretty well and I'd happily do that if I lived in the right spot.Do any of you that fly rotational schedules work part time while home for extra income?
Not at all as the only time you might get sent home early is if a sensor craps out on you and they need to air cargo it somewhere, but usually in that instance they'll offer to double crew you somewhere. If you'd like a month or more off you can swap it with a co-worker or ask the boss for time off during the annuals.Regarding your 16/12 and 23/12 deployments.....is it year round work? Do you ever end up sitting for periods of time (at home for example....and not getting paid) due to seasonality or weather?
where do i send my resumeThere are some rumors that Quantum might have two 208 openings in the near to very near future for commutable 16/12s if anyone wants to update their resumes. I have a buddy doing an interview there this week and there's two other openings being discussed, but it's at the rumor stage.
They have hired some new pilots that the ink in the commercial certificate is not even dry. So if you have over 250TT A Commercial License with Instrument send in your resume.I’m with another gig rn but just out of curiosity, I see on LinkedIn they’re hiring at 750TT. Is that negotiable? Like 400-ish Tt?
After my departure they have decided they needed to increase pay for the pilots (C441). The Schedule is 15 on and 6 off. You start early Wednesday commuting to your aircraft and are expected to do a lift if weather permit. On the Wednesday that you are commuting home you are expected to do a lift and then commute home after 1PM. Travel days are the longest days on the rotation. Equipment is nicely maintained but the airplanes are old and they all have little glitches. During my 2 years I didn't have a problem downing an aircraft because I found something wrong. Most of the flying is during the day in nice weather conditions on ocation you are expected to commute in bad weatehr, If the weather was below my personal minimums I didn't have a problem delaying my departure. I did some approaches down to minimums but not many.General thoughts, pay, equipment, quality of life, etc...
The Schedule is Wednesday to Wednesday, 15 days on and rest day starts Thursday to Tuesday 6 days off. But on Monday you need to start paying attention to figure out where you are heading. The Conquest pilots live on the road all year around with sometimes with slow periods between jobs.What's the rest period?
right, but how many hours a day do you fly at most?The Schedule is Wednesday to Wednesday, 15 days on and rest day starts Thursday to Tuesday 6 days off.

Hi Alex!They have hired some new pilots that the ink in the commercial certificate is not even dry. So if you have over 250TT A Commercial License with Instrument send in your resume.
Since the flying is VFR, is the IFR rating a complete must?
I have a CPL and ME with 1000TT but no IFR.
Did you work at Surdex?Surdex is a leading provider of geospatial data and mapping services and our talented pilots lead the effort in the acquisition of imagery and data. We are immediately hiring pilots capable of flying our multi-engine piston and turbine aircraft. We are located at KSUS; however, multi-engine...surdex.aaimtrack.com
The job posting says that a instrument rating is required and i doubt that you would be hired anywhere to fly commercially without it. You might have luck dropping skydivers without the ifr, but as most pilots get the ifr on their way to commercial its almost a mandatory requirement to have.
I never worked for them, but I can give you some details of my survey experience from another "VFR conditions" survey experience. This will help explain why they likely require the Instrument ratingDid you work at Surdex?
