Goodmorning everyone, my name is Evan Trudeau and i am new to this forum. So i am currently working on getting my commerical license as a helicopter pilot and i have a very strong interest in racing. I have been trying to find some information or let alone what you would call the occupation of being a follow helicopter for rally racing and races of that nature. I have been scouring the internet for any information that i can possibly find and so far i havent found anything about this subject. Is this an occupation that you think would require for you to find a photographer that is in need of a helicopter pilot for a race? If anyone has any insight on this occupation any direction would be very much appreciated. I have been trying to find information regarding this subject with companies such as Red Bull, Montster, Rockstar, but like i said i still have yet to find anything regarding this subject.

Most of the companies with the pockets to pay for filming already have relationships with commercial operators, locally, where the filming is taking place.


I have a friend who go to fly photo chase for a rally race in Oregon.  The heli she flew belonged to one of the drivers, who wants to become a commercial heli pilot.  He'd been ferrying the aircraft up here to lease to the operator she was a CFI for.  He set it all up, and she just lucked out and got to do it.  Once.  Serendipity.


You gonna call this new business CarPix?

I told my mom I wanted to be a pilot when I grew up.  She told me I couldn't do both.
