  1. What aircraft do they currently operate? What type of contract do they have? CWN? EU? How many years left on the contract? Do you they anything besides fire work?
  2. @iChris or @Nearly Retired would be the ones to know if anyone does...
  3. Depends on the job...1500tt and 1000 in helicopter is common. Fixed wing time helps but not all that much.
  4. Even if he has a bad attitude...he's correct on this topic. Fixed wing hours will mean very little for rotary jobs...they have rotary specific mins for a reason...insurance reasons.
  5. Where's it located? I can probably help.
  6. Nope and never will, but know plenty of HEMS pilots and it's a "retirement" job. Straight and level, point A to point B ambulance in the air. Lots of time for netflix and internet forums tho.
  7. Just remember that HEMS is boring as hell and you'll be lucky to fly a couple hundred hours a year.
  8. If HEMS is your goal then instructing and/or tours will be your best bet. And get as much night/NVG time as possible.
  9. It's a foot in the door for a future PIC seat and possible long term career. Most operators running two pilot ships also have lighter helicopters that they may rotate you into to build time if they see potential in you... Have you ever long lined single pilot?
  10. If you're still in Ventura then you shouldn't have an issue finding work, SoCal/NorCal is the mecca of helicopters. Apply to everyone running Blackhawks and get a SIC job until you meet OAS times then move into the PIC.
  11. The Hiller in 2018 is not the same Hiller as of today...I wonder if past lawsuits were carried over to the new owners/investors of Hiller? If not, then good luck getting any money from the past owners...
  12. You're getting awfully close to the age cut-off. Stick with teaching and fly on the side as a hobby.
  13. No. Flapping and feathering only takes care of a portion, without tilting the mast you'd be compensating with the cyclic.
  14. They are also sometimes tilted sideways to counteract dissymmetry of lift.
