It's still early and I've got a ways to go but when the Cares Act runs out, I'm assuming there are going to be a flood of furloughed pilots looking for any job available and a lot of them will have CFI II etc and more hours and experience than me. I'm hoping to have my multi commercial add on done by end of August and get CFI, II, MEI done asap after. I maybe able to get on with the flight school I've just spent all this money with as a CFI but if that doesn't happen. It got me thinking and two other people have called me about buying a plane and flying all over the place every day to get 1500 hours. I'll need about 1100 when the training is all said and done. I've got to put the numbers together but I'm looking at, down payment, pre buy inspection, monthly financing, insurance, fuel, hanger/tie down, squawks, and an annual after about a year of flying to get 1100 conservatively. Anything missing here? It seems like it might not be the worst idea to almost guarantee the timeline to get the hours needed vs maybe taking 16-24 months or so instructing to get to 1500? Anyone know anyone that did this and what type of plane? 150,172, Cherokee 140/180? Going to put a good number of hours on the engine and the hope would be to sell the plane or maybe find some partners and get a new engine and keep it? I've got several people I think would be interested if the plane wasn't ratted out that would be interested. Still way early but if there are no jumper jobs, pipe line, cargo or something, I want to be getting a plan in order.
