    Good - but just FYI my copy of the regs says the sales demo pilot only needs 200 hours, not 250, to meet the compensation exemption.

    Of course they probably would like someone with an IR, complex, commercial (or at least qualified to get one within the next 6 months, personable, in contact with many pilots via social media, and, of course, a Cessna lover with being a Cessna owner a big plus.

    I wonder who has all of those qualifications and wants to be an intern? :wink2:

    I'll do it for 100k per year with a 10 year guarantee along with a 10% raise per year. Full health and dental with me never owing a penny. I'd also like 3 months of vacation per year.

    I'll do it cheap... IF they agree not to count the aircraft remaining after I am finished. :)

    Yea. Except for the salary and benefits it fits his list.

    I'm collecting a pension from my last job (of 36 years) so I an afford to teach now.

    Application deadline: April 30th

    That is pretty soon! Lots of requirements too, like the "department head" letter. Seems they are looking for college students.

    I dunno if someone already mentioned this, but I, too, thought the same thing because of the canopy shape. However, look at the landing gear.

    It does seem like a good opportunity to build time in lieu of instructing (not that there is anything wrong with instructing).

    They need to lower the weight limit and look for applicants with the highest number of "old people" friends (relative to the interns age...in reality, friends in the 40-60+ brackets).

    That, to me, seems like the best way to make sure the intern properly promotes the SkyCatcher to the demographic most likely to be able to afford it. (the lower weight is to make sure all potential interested parties can be taken for their intro flight)

    Nah. Only need 30 minutes of gas on board plus whatever the flight is for a VFR demo flight. ;) ;) ;)

    You haven't met many sales people... have you? ;) ;) ;)

    You might want to think about your approach to grammar before you apply.

    I was afraid it would come out all wrong. Honestly I was was just typing the facts, didn't mean to hurt any feelings.
