Going back to school

I am wanting to go back and get my commercial rating so i can fly for a company. I want to leave my current job and work for a company that I can get payed to fly people in a turbocharger twin or TBM. Any ideas of companies that allow me to fly just turbocharger twins? I have already applied and got approved for getting my commercial ratings. I am starting in November and have to get 250 hours of flying there turbocharger so they can record it. I have already last year received my instrument rating and i am hoping for a commercial ratings. Your thoughts please?

I thought you said you don't have an instrument rating? Just out of curiosity, why bother when you already have the resources to fly TBM and DA62 around for fun? Also since you stressed that you already have a ME rating, wouldn't you need to redo that once you get your commercial in order to fly those turbocharger twins for hire?

All great questions. Yes I have my instrument rating. I might have to redo my ME rating and reason is I hate my job in investment. I love that I have the ability to know all there is to know about investing personal but lately I have experienced burn out as a investor so I want a career change. I have so much fun flying so just want to make a career out of it.

Are you sure? Sounds like you are doing pretty well as an investor. You know you'll have to redo your instrument rating too after you get your commercial, right?

Ok you made too good of points. If I got the commercial pilot i would be in alot of debt. I would have to pay alot for all the training and wouldn't be able to fly my single engines because of debt and unable to buy or rent. Ok official decision is I am going to continue as a private pilot and a investor. Thanks for helping me make sure i didn't make a dumb decision. Especially since covid I likely wouldn't get to fly in a long time. So maybe after a few years when covid slows down we could meet and fly around. Just maybe for now who knows 6 when or of that will happen.

I can't believe after a few days of stress I was about to give up a job that I can for sure keep with covid and get payed alot. I need meditation lol
