Completely false. Present yourself as a professional and people will treat you as such. Be honest in saying you're not interested in ramp and wannabe jobs, and you you'll quickly find yourself pointed in the right direction for a flying job. I know of many places who give low time/new pilots a chance. If you walk in thinking you're only worth a ramp job, a ramp job is all they will give you.

Believing the quoted statement is just a way of justifying having done a ramp/wannabe position but should not be considered the new norm.

Tipsails, I believe we are on the same page when it comes to attitude and work ethic. Being a professional encompasses many skills and traits (Competence, Reliability, Honesty, Integrity, Respect, Positivity, etc..). Employers look for these skills and more before they give the keys to a new CPL. If you're looking for a flying job, then go for it!

If there are no flying jobs, then a ramp position might be a stop gap in the meantime. Know the company you're applying to, and understand their hiring practices. Some companies have contractual obligations with regards to minimum pilot qualifications. If it's a 703/704 that only hires from the ramp; then it's a hoop that you have to go through IF you want to fly for that company. If you're not interested, then don't apply.

I still stand by what I've said. "No company will give out the keys to a brand new CPL, and trust them with their airplane". I'd be surprised to find a 300 hour wonder in a commercial operation, being PIC, of a 9 passenger airplane, flying with an ops spec of 1 mile / 300'.

With that said, I've flown with low time guys (less than 1000TT), who got in the right seat, learnt the job; and were promoted 6 months to a year later to Captain.

All the best out there!
