I'm interested in pursuing a life long desire to fly small jets. I hold CFII and ME ratings with 2500+ hours. No experience in the flight levels. I've been told the 525 CJ type might be one I should look into as it is one of the less expensive ratings and it covers a number of models of Cessna jets. Due to the expense of getting the rating, I'd like to know that I'd be able to use it once I get it. I'm not interested in a career, just pursuing my love of flying ( and maybe making a little back towards my investment). I've been told about contracting but how does one get experience after getting a rating in a sim?? I've got a lot of questions and any advise would be helpful.
