There are more jobs available in New York than any other city in the world at this time. There are many small charter pilot jobs available. I stopped flying because of some health problems I had but they have now been resolved and I may start flying again. I have always been in my own business since I was 25 years old, it is the only way to go to make real money. You can rent a small plane and charter people around for the day. That is great fun and high profit. People pay very high prices many times when they need to fly somewhere fast. They can pay $800. per hour and more sometimes. So even $6000. per day is not impossible, much better than any job out there.
