I enjoyed ycur great Aviation Career sae [September] I would suggest there are even rro•e interesting and fun ways to build hours than instructing. I started my career flying on floats in northern CanaCa Wh le I had hopec for immediate mutt erg:re experience, this was idyllic, low-level flying in a J-3 Cub, dropping into small lakes to deliver food to hunters or miners, or picking up bags of rice at First Nation rice camps. This particular J-3 had no electrics, so no radio, and I had to swing the prop by hand to start the engine. Some of the most fun I had flying any aircraft. Next, I flew in Kenya to build time, which impressed the airline I would later work for. I went on to have a very enjoyable career, flying the DC-9, Boeing 767 and Airbus family of aircraft. My advice to aspiring professional pilots is don’t be afraid of looking for unusual jobs too.
