To all the helicopter veterans out there who have been around for a bit and know something of the industry, I have a question I could use some help with. I'm a soon to be CFII and have roughly 230 hours in only Robinson helicopters. After completing the instructor certificate I am considering doing additional training that may or may not be beneficial. My question is what would be the best approach to take with regards to marketability and experience? Turbine transition? External loading? Etc. I have looked at both the Bell Academy and MD Training Center for turbine transitions into particular helicopters (such as the 206B, 206L, 500 series), however, am unsure whether or not that would make a difference in my marketability. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

At this point the only thing that could make you slightly more marketable would be the ability to instruct in a Schweitzer 269/300. Turbine transition, external load, Bell school, etc. are all wastes of money for low time pilots! Experience as an instructor is what you need now!
