If IFR and all that goes with it is not your cup of tea, then consider getting a float endorsement. Once you get a foot in that industry then you will have a job for life - and a good job too. The aeroplanes are usually pretty slick, work environment is great and the passengers are generally in a good frame - of - mind. What more could you want? If you want to fly a C208, why not on amphibs? They are becoming quite common here now! Once you've got some float time you could venture overseas to fly the float twotters seasonally. That would be a great semi-retirement gig!
