    Going Home Again

    I'm mostly a lurker but you were a moderator here and I think an active AFF instructor when I first started skydiving and found this forum in 2001. I've always valued your input. Welcome home!
  2. I really hate posting here, but here is my $.02 as a pilot and a jumper but not a jump pilot. Don't do it. If you want to jump, find a flying job to fund it until you can get a coach/instructional rating, fly camera, etc. so that you no longer have to pay for every jump. Then you get the best of both worlds. Granted, you won't be able to jump EVERY day, but if you fly for a dropzone, you'll probably be jumping even less. By the way, if you have 2700 hours, quit being obtuse. You know full well that there are other flying jobs besides "flying a bus full of pissed off passengers." Not that I blame you, I wouldn't and don't, but that is enough hours to open up a few other doors aside from the regionals and flight instructing. Your enthusiasm is great, but I think it could be channeled more constructively to reach your goal of jumping as much as possible while still working as a pilot. Either way, this advice is worth only what you paid for it, so good luck!
