    Those videos may be the cause of my man crush on Barry Schiff.

    I think back in '87 it was still ABC's Wide World of Flying.

    If you look at his earlier videos it appears he already did the airline gig. He talks frequently about how much he enjoys doing what he does now and his QOL. He also flies Caravans for some outfit going to the Bahamas. I really enjoy his videos, along with Premier 1, Capt. Moonbeam and a few others.

    By the way, here is the Youtube channel of the girl in the video in the OP. : )

    After this thread pointed me to him, I've watched a few stevo1 videos. Although I really like the production value, I can't get past his Blues-Clues-esque interaction with the viewing audience...

    "So how have you guys been this week?"
    ....pause for a few seconds, as if hearing viewers say something....
    "Oh, that's great to hear!"

    Pretty sure Premier 1 used to fly -16's, awesome channel he has going. As for Captain Moonbeam, he is so goofy but for whatever reason his videos are enjoyable.

    Yeah, P1 did. I was referring to Steveo about the airline gig and Caravans to the Bahamas.

    Well, thanks to this thread, I've had a lot of wonderful YouTube aviation content to watch while sitting reserve this month and not flying very much.

    Never thought I'd say that I got anything close to my "airplane fix" from watching videos, but some of these are quite well done, despite whatever personal and flying technique quirks they might have.

    I just had no idea that guys were out there making this many videos with such high production value. Definitely a massive improvement from the (seemingly recent) days where most aviation videos were unproduced iPhone and GoPro clips.

    Just a wild guess, but if a guy in south Florida has Saab 340 time he probably was with Silver, or it's predecessor Gulfstream Air/ Academy.

    There are a ton of Caravans in the area that go to the Bahamas. Both wheeled/ amphibious as 91 & 135 airplanes.

    The tail numbers of the airplanes in his vids support that.

    Flying Vans to the Bahamas is a fun job. Reasonably challenging, reasonably rewarding.
    I enjoyed doing it part 91 out of MCO. If the pay is good, I can kind of see why one would stick to it.

    I can't imagine the corrosion issues with amphib floats down there. Honey bunches of nope.

    It's easy. Lots of grease and lube, frequent replacement of wheel bearings and other hardware, wash it every flight, replace the occasional skin, new paint every three years...

    Which is cool if you're into that. Me I'd be perfectly happy if I never had to deal with amphibs in salt water again.

    Is there a waiver to the "remain within gliding distance of land" for 135 if you have the floats on?
    I did one 135 ride-along to the Bahamas in straight Van and basically said "thanks, I'll stay on the 91 side of things"

    It's right there in 135.183...
    No person may operate a land aircraft carrying passengers over water unless—

    (a) It is operated at an altitude that allows it to reach land in the case of engine failure;
    Also note that cargo aircraft are exempt from the gliding distance requirement.
