Hi everyone! I'm on my journey to do my PPL/IFR, 80 hours, will have it out in a month, but I'm debating if I want to go commercial or not. 250 hours, should license with twin prop and..well, you know how it is. -- I would like to make my investment back in my education by doing commercial, the cost isn't per se the issue - it's more "kind" of work. Is most of the work for an early pilot just charter flights to popular locations, marketing on FB or whatever group and breaking even on the rental of the plane to build hours ? What are some common ways once you hit commercial rating to build hours/pay back the sunk cost of education for these ratings? The difference here is *I* don't want a career in aviation, I just want to fly and know how to do it, but if the opportunity in commercial is easy enough for weekend flights to pay for my original training, I'll do it. Otherwise, I think PPL/IFR may be enough for me to have fun.
