12 years ago, I had 2500 hours of piston time and no turbine time. Found it just about impossible to break into turbines. Then I bought 30 hours of time building in a Jetranger for $120/hour. No, it didn't make me a better pilot. Never even got to start it and just flew gentle turns at 100kts. Yes, it helped me get my first turbine job. CP said because of my turbine time he wouldn't have to send me to Bell school. Good or bad, I didn't care, it got me the job. 12 years and 8500 hours later, I have a job as a S76C++ IFR captain. I'm sure many others have similar stories. Let's hear them...
