Only hear about the gom, but does the california coastline use helos the same way? Im assuming not and even if so, i assume the job market is even tighter.

They use helicopters but it's a relatively small operation. One company and a few helicopters handle all of it, I believe. RLC was out there for a while. I don't know if they still are.

Some fly out of Santa Maria to the rigs. I thought RLC pulled out of that base a few years ago but I don't know the current operators.

if you contact me by text at 561-346-2816 I can put you in touch with the chief pilot.  SoCal is a pretty sweet gig and as we keep a helicopter in Torrance I've never been able to get any of my pilots into that job as it requires a lot of turbine time. 

Tom McDermott, manager
