I've been flying skydivers for over 5 years now. Everything mentioned is correct. My first Jump Pilot job was in a Cessna 182. They required 300 hours and a High Performance endorsement. They will ALL require at least those amount of hours and that endorsement. I'm now flying a Grand Caravan and a Twin Otter. The last 5 years of my life have been super fun! Good luck!
