I won't name names, but there's plenty of company’s advertising King Air F/O positions with 500TT. Catch is the company’s seem to either want time on type, or some sort of type rating. And I know for a fact some of these company’s do require you to sign a bond.tdp19 wrote:I think you must be misinformed because theres no way someone would make u pay 7000 G's for a PPC then pay a 10,000 k bond. I would love to know who that company is if that is in fact true. PPC is only required for a captain, a lot of companys will give people in the right seat a PPC but only a PCC is required. I pray to god people aren't stupid enough to pay 17,000 dollars for a job when a PPC is not even required.
The company provides you with training in exchange for you staying with the company for a certain amount of time. For a contract to be valid, generally, there needs to be an exchange of consideration.
If the company is not providing training, thus not providing their part of a bargain, I can't see what the exchange would be for a bond.
Bonds are there (not that I agree with them) generally to keep you around for more than a few weeks.
I wouldn't go of my own accord to get a PPC or type rating on any aircraft unless I knew absolutely there was a job waiting for me afterwards.
It's complicated, but basically:Oxi wrote:Could one please explain the PPC and PCC differences a little better.
You need a PCC when:
You are Captain of a 702/703 and fly Day VFR single engine aircraft.
You are Copilot of a 702/703 aircraft.
You need a PPC when:
You fly Captain of a 702 during IFR.
You fly Captain of a 703 during IFR, Night, or with a Multi engine airplane.
You fly Captain of 704 or 705.
You fly Copilot of 704 or 705.
Both a PPC and PCC have similar training (stalls, steep turns, flight at reduced airspeed, holds, approaches, takeoffs and landings). You also need to do ground school and company written tests. After the PCC training, the Chief Pilot will sign you off as competent. After the PPC training, you go for a flight test with an ACP (Air Check Pilot).
A PPC renews your IFR rating for 2 years, a PCC does not.
Hope this helps.
