Sheble SEL/MEL the right move?

Asked by: 1950 views General Aviation

Hey guys... Here is the situation. I have a SIC job lined up as soon as I finish my Commercial SEL/MEL.  I don't have a lot of time to go do some of the longer programs cause of work and time restrictions.  So since I am going to end up flying a completely different aircraft where I will have to get type rated on anyway as a SIC would doing Sheble's program be the best idea for me?  I saw that if you have met the minimum requirements you can get whatever is missing in what looks like a week and just complete both programs.  It is my understanding from friends that most places it takes 2/3 weeks of ground and flights just to get the multi just because they don't do it accelerated.  Any opinions here?  I am not trying to shortchange myself, but if I have the job lined up anyway, shouldn't I just get the experience and get the ticket?

    ok, will other airlines etc care “where” you passed your multi? I think everyone knows that Sheble is kind of a super fast way to get it done, and not exactly the most through.
