In the classified section of this website, you will run across this ad. Maybe a few of us should let him/her know a little about professionalism.

"Free Multi Instruction
I am a CFI/CFII/MEI who lives in South Florida.
I have 1,500+ total and 1,300 instruction given.
I am willing to teach you in your own multi airplane for free.
If you are interested, Email me at mclarenf1_fan@yahoo.com"

Kind of tough for all of us to compete and still make a living when someone else is not charging anything for their services(of which they paid a lot of money to attain). I am not trying to start a flame here or anything, I am just a little frustrated at these givaway guys sucking the professionalism out of this industry.

Just Wondering

I was just wondering how this person has 1500 total and 1300 instruction given? When the last I checked you had to have 250 to get your commercial. Something just doesn't add up to me. Anyone else see that?

I don't like hearing this much myself, but it's just supply and demand. I used to work at a chlorine/caustic plant in the late '80's. The market was always swinging. One year we'd be making $1000/ton for cl2. The next we'd have to pay people to take the stuff.

BTW, I'm a CFII, MEI... anyone need any multi dual? Rate negotiable. Schedule's wide open.

The only thing I can think of is that he's rounding to the next 100 hours on instruction given. Maybe he has something like 1520 TT and 1260 of instruction...

I had a friend that did that. When I first asked her how many hours she had, the reply was, "Oh, about 800." The exact number was 748.

Makes sense

Yeah I guess I should have thought of that seeing how I guess I do the same when I am close to a whole number. Like now my profile says 2000 but I actually have 1992.

Part 61 is 250 tt for commercial.

>>>>You can also count up to 50 sim hours toward your commercial....


I don't see how that can be. Except under part 141, the CPL requires 250 hours of *Flight time*

Flight time is defined in Part 1 as something that happens only in an aircraft. Sim time isn't in an aircraft, so it's not flight time. I don't see anything else in 61.129 which allows any wiggle room for sim time.

Flydog,

>>>>Under Part 141 you can complete your commercial with 190 hrs


Yes, I'm aware of that, notice that I wrote "except under part 141"

Do you know of anything under Part 141 which allows the use of 50 hours of sim or FTD time toward the CPL requirements?

Notice the ad says..."I am willing to teach you in your own multi airplane for free."

Anyone I have ever met who owns a twin has had their own fav instructor already. They don't need to save a buck by doing this....
