My name is Eric Huber.  I am a 76ER co-pilot at Delta and I received your name from my uncle Chuck Huber (Delta Retired).  I understand you have either a web site for retirees or a forum type setup for those interested.  I would like to know if you could help me out.  I have a good friend who lives in Hilton Head and just bought himself a Cessna Conquest II.  He is 69 years old and has family spread out in the southeast.  He is looking for someone who either lives in the Savannah area or would be willing to relocate to the area in order to fly his plane for him.  He does not intend to fly so much to make this a full time job.  It therefore might be appealing to someone who is retired who would like to do it part time.  He would like to use the plane to take family to the Bahamas and to visit them at there homes.  Do you know anyone who would be interested?  Would it be possible to post this job opening on your website or forum?  Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for your time,

Eric Huber

Fractional Pilot Jobs posted 1-27-07
You might want to add the fractionals to your job opportunity web page for those who don't want to give up flying and age 60 is not a barrier.
NetJets is the 400 pound gorilla in the fractional business, but CitationShares, Flight Options and others are hiring.
Best place to get started is by going to their web sites and getting an overview of their operations and, if interested, info on application.
There is also information about the fractionals at www.airlinepilotcentral.com.  Go to the forums and select "Fractionals".  You can read what other say about working conditions and pay.
Starting pay at the fractionals is pretty dismal, but after about 5 years, you'll be making about 100K.  Some of them have EXCELLENT health care plans, which is worth a lot if you've been paying Delta premiums!
If anyone has a question about the "fracs" generally, or about NetJets specifically, they can contact me via email.

Flying Air Astana posted 3-04-06
Thanks much for the latest info on the SSN and RSP sites.  I appreciate all the efforts you make on behalf of the current and former DXX pilots.  Last fall I had applied for a position flying the B-757 for Air Astana in Khazakstan.  They didn't need anyone then but they currently need captains and FOs for both the B-757 and B-737-700/800.  Pay is roughly $100,000. per year and five-star hotel housing is provided.

The recruiter I was working with is Barbara Kelly at Direct Personnel International in Dublin.  Her email is bkelly@directpersonnel.com.  The website for Air Astana is
www.air-astana.kz   Hopefully, there may be someone who would be interested in this opportunity
Meanwhile, I am off to Dallas for Learjet simulator.

Airbus North America as a Sim Instructor   posted 12-15-06
I would like to pass along a possible job opportunity for retired
guys.  I am currently employed by Airbus North America as a Sim
Instructor in the A320. The Sim Center is located in Miami just
across the street from MIA.  http://www.airbusnorthamerica.com/

Airbus  currently trains mostly foreign carriers and US startups.
Rumor is that we are booked thru the summer with training and are
short instructors. Most of us are full time and have full company
benefits which include Company paid Medical.  They are looking for
Florida residents   No real flying is involved and No medical is
required.  Starting around 65K year.

I really like the Airbus.  At 58 I am one of the younger guys here.
With 28 years of Boeing I am the only Delta guy and could use some
company. This is a great place to work and Airbus has treated me very
well. You would be typed in the A320.---- You can contact me for more
information if interested or  can submit your resume directly to:


This is the info my boss:

> As you know, from time to time, we review our instructor candidate
> list and find that it may need updating. After a review of the
> resumes that we now have on file I believe that it's time to update
> that list with current resumes. If you know of anyone who you would
> recommend for a position here as a flight crew instructor, and who
> might be interested in that kind of position, please ask him/her to
> submit a resume to me (email is fine) for future reference.
> Although there are no definite plans for hiring new instructors, I
> think that it's always a good thing to be prepared.
> For your info, a pilot with instructional background and an A320
> Type Rating would be our first choice, but these are not
> necessarily prerequisite for an instructor position. Thanks.

We own 2 Cirrus training centers in Miami, FL. We are in need of flight instructors to teach in Cirrus aircraft. They are all brand new fully loaded planes. We would love to have retired airline pilot’s work with us. We do not want low time kids building time teaching in these advanced aircraft.
Obviously we can not pay a fortune, but our rates are significantly higher than most because of our reputations. I'm a NAFI Master Instructor and my girlfriend/partner, Tina, is this year's FAA flight instructor of the year for the SE region.
As well, these planes are a blast to fly! 
The planes rent from $195 for a SR-20 to $299 for an SR-22 per hour and our instruction rate is $75 per hour.
If you have any contacts to help me look for these retired pilots, I'd greatly appreciate it.

RE: Flying Job 6-28-07

Thank you very much for the effort you have put into providing information to the retired pilot group. It has been a life saver.

I have been fortunate enough to find work here in the south ATL area flying airplanes - albeit, small airplanes. I am currently the Chief Pilot for Falcon Air which is located at Falcon Field in Peachtree City. We are the 135 charter company that shares offices, personnel and resources with Falcon Aviation Academy. We are currently using the Diamond DA42 TwinStar in the 135 operation and expect to add a King Air, maybe a Falcon 50 and next year Diamond D-jet. I would like to find retired DAL pilots that are interested in this kind of flying. It is a big change from the operation that we all came from but with some effort and concentration even us old guys can be trained. If any of our group finds this interesting, please email me at wally@falconairservices.com.
