I had a good laugh reading through that job post and they had a similar one about a year ago.

They seem awfully goofy and cheerful at that place. Way to happy to be flying helicopters for my taste. I prefer a more cynical job atmosphere.

I think the pilot shortage is over on the fixed wing side.  If oil gets expensive again then heli pilot shortage will be what we're talking about then. Usually at the 1000+ hour mark.

Boatpix, please substantiate your assertion that the FW pilot shortage is over.  As long as regional carriers are paying 20k+ bonuses to new hires the shortage is still in effect.  The only way I see the pilot labor shortage going away soon is if industry lobbying is effective and Congress agrees to reverse the ATP requirement changes that were introduced following the Colgan accident.

I don't think he meant "over" as in done with, but "over" as in "over there."

There's no pilot shortage.
There are countless jobs in the HEMS industry all loctated in places where nobody wants to live.

There is a shortage of pilots willing to work in the less desireable parts of the US.

Hmm, live in a less desirable part of the US?

To be honest my home has become so miserably overpopulated these past few years, that the thought of living in a trailer out in the middle of butt-crack nowhere is looking better and better with each hour and a half (oneway 20 mile) commute!,...but then I really don't want to wear a helmet!:D

You know this thread was meant to be sarastic,...right?

It is a good place to network and get a job doing NYC turbine tours and charter. They usually place pilots every year.

 

Like the rest of the industry - lots of hustle needed and isn't all rainbows.
