My buddy was offered 135 job flying PIC Multi, 95% VFR Day in Cessna 402 with 1yr contract Island hopping around FL (He likes the company, 800hr/yr avg).
Right now he is getting 120hrs/m Instructing and Contract work. Could hit 1500hr in potentially 7 months doing what he’s doing (main source of hrs is a flight school with 152s and increasingly questionable maintenance). He says parting with them soon is a priority but wants to choose wisely.
Figured I’d ask here for him.
Is PIC Multi worth the lack of Night and IFR experience/currency (currently 55hr Multi, 55hr Night and 10 Actual IMC) when getting interviewed by the regionals and going through ground school?
Also is the extra 3-4months before Regionals worth it?
