    I was hired with 900tt and 108me.

    After being there for 8 months I've got 1400tt, 500me, and I've been upgraded to the 99. So, now I'm logging turbine time. My experience has been mostly positive with them.

    I had enough time after finishing my ratings that I was able to get hired. My preference was to build time in 135 or 91 instead of teaching. It's a personal choice.

    Good luck to you.

    I'm 51. I will be losing my job at the end of June. I've pretty much decided that I am going to go for it and be a pilot. I have my private but have not flown in quite a few years. This has always been a dream of mine.

    Yourself in 10 years!

    Don't let age stop you as in the future you will look back and see yourself now as young. The only real limitation is the age 65 rule and that just rules out 121 gigs. Knowing what you want and what sacrifices are worth that is what matters.
