Look out world! I am starting training for my first real flying job after getting my Commercial ticket two weeks ago.

I have done 4 out of 25 hours of insurance required flight training in a Blackhawk Cessna Caravan, hauling skydivers. I will be the backup pilot. Though the main pilot is going into the Air Force
What an elevator! It hauls 16 jumpers to altitude (13,500 AGL) in about 12 minutes, including getting lined up on jump run. Climb is done at 90-95 knots.  It descends at 140 with the prop flat, around 5,000 FPM beating most jumpers to the ground.
It is basically two big traffic patterns done within 3 miles of the airport. One Climbing to jump run and one descending to land. The DZ, jump pilot and airplane make money based on getting each load done as quickly as possible. Hot refueling is done each 4th load. 
This DZ is very well manged and runs like clockwork. Safety is the top consideration. 
This is VERY different from a low and Slow Pietenpol. I hope to commute to work in the Piet someday.
Blue Skies,
Steve D.
