What are some jobs for flying Cessna type air crafts or Floatplanes?

November 30, 2009

How many hours of flight do I need for one of these jobs with a commercial pilot’s license?

You could fly into remote areas in South America that are home to some of the most primitive villages whose access is limited virtually to rivers. This type of job would be of a humanitarian nature.
Some places take days to get to by motorboat and a float plane could cut the time down considerably. One such place is the Amazon River. It is very long, 3903 miles, and the main part of the river is 1-6 miles wide, more than enough room to land a float plane if you wanted to get supplies quickly to the inhabitants there. (some are savages but that’s besides my point).

    Flight instructing, carrying skydivers, banner towing. Possibly pipeline inspection, tracking migratory animals, border patrols. Probably a few more that I can’t think of.
