I have a question, mainly for current regional pilots, but anyone feel free to respond. What would you say your average time away from home is each month? Has it changed much since the time when you were a new-hire? Also would like any insight on how the time away from home affected your family/significant other(s) if it applies. And finally my last question is regarding where you are based. Would it be possible for someone, especially a new-hire, to be based somewhere out of state if they lived close to an airport and could jumpseat a day or two ahead of the trip? Would that be worth it? The reason I ask all these questions is that I just graduated from college this week and have many options to take at this point. I have always had dreams of flying for the airlines, but I am also getting to the point where I can see myself being married and having a family in the future. Just trying to find a balance between being able to be with the ones I love and being able to get paid to do what I love. Thanks for any input and opinions.
