Hello, quick introduction
I am a retiring OH-58D pilot, I have 2,900 hours turbine time with experience in mountain, low level (less than 200') and NVG. I would like to become a utility/fire fighting pilot. The problem I have run into is most companies want previous fire experience, long line experience, and previously carded; which I have none of. What are the recommendations for me to break into this market. I have looked at doing some long line training courses offered in Oregon or Florida. Can anyone give some recommendations or insight.
Thank You for the input
