part 91 charter at first, already have a lead to when i get to 1000 TT to re-apply for 135 which isn't that many more hours to go. Right after they granted me a 3rd class in June I went and got my CE-500 SIC endorsement and all the paperwork is in to Washington DC now, so it's fly for free until I get my 1st class. I'm just got on a 3 pilot FO rotation so I'm playing the wait game for both air time and compensation.

437 days after I sobered up and approximately 13 months after starting the process of obtaining my first class medical, it has been granted as of 10/5!

Basically for the next 3 years I will be in the HIMS program and there is a list 12 items to which I need to comply. Most of which are to be carried out by my HIMS/AME in dealing with the FAA but I must maintain my recovery program obviously, see my faa psychiatrist yearly, medicals are only valid for 6 months at a time regardless of class, and several other items to be addressed by others.

This, obviously, is a HUGE milestone for me!  8)

There are seasonal jobs, but the ones I was thinking about are year round but rotation type (1st-15th or 16th-30th each month and you can swap out with others).  They like to hire people who live there but you are able to jumpseat and commuting is common, so you could live anywhere you wanted on your off days.  Housing is provided in the bush when you are on shift for that type of work.
