Thanks for the info!As far as I can recall, the only Challenger it covers is the Challenger 800/850 (?) which is basically is a CRJ200 in an corporate configuration. All of the other Challengers, the 300, 600, 601, 604 & 605 aren't covered by that type but different ones.
The CRJ200 is a CL-65 type. The other types are CL600 CL601 CL604 and CL300 I believe.Any CeRJ drivers have their pilot cert. handy? I was under the impression that a CRJ 200 and all the small challengers were typed as CL601. A friend of mine sent me a picture of his temp certificate when he passed his type ride at Air Wisky. I swear it said "CL601 SIC".

Day trips, multi-day trips, or multi-week charter broker trips?

CE-500. Covers 8 different models last time I counted. The type is one of the cheapest to acquire too. There are some places that even do the training in the plane.That brings me to this question. What do you guys think is the most valuable type rating to have on this side of the field? I'm thinking kingair, citation, or lear.
Honestly, I'm not sure it really matters though. I think some turbine time is really all you need if you have a good network going. I mean, Ultra-Air in OMA pretty much only hires high time CFIs. No turbine and no types. Just little itty bitty piston airplane experience.
Obviously a type and time in type is probably best for cold calling.
Conspicuously absent, sir, but I'm a rehabilitated (reclaimed) RJ driver.Question from the sidebar here, but does a CRJ type cover the Challenger series?
I know very little about RJ's other than far too many of their pilots have "In N Out Burger" stickers on their flight kits.
We'll see. I don't know, I like the EM2 people, and I'm genuinely stoked to fly a turboprop airplane.I give it 6 months.
