Small Piston twin PIC vs Turbo prop SIC?

#1 Post by Invertago » Tue Mar 31, 2009 8:27 pm

Ok... wondering here, I have 1100 TT, mostly instructing so I want to branch out to some 704 / 705 work. Which is more likely to get me to a left seat turbo prop faster?

Fly left seat on a Navajo / Islander etc
or
fly right seat on a turboprop, B1900 / Twotter etc

Small piston PIC or larger turbine SIC? Considering I already have the 1100TT almost all PIC already.

If you want to go to an airline, I'd take the turbine time - you'll probably live in nicer places. OTOH, pic on a 'ho probably pays better..

I'd suspect, though, in this economy, it would be wiser to take the first offer of the two that comes along...

Thanks, I'm looking for that elusive turbine spot now... might have to read some threads on Single Turbine Vs Multi Piston too as I just saw some PC12 openings.
