  1. Wasabi32 I would say dont go for it, its just another job. you would have more fulfilment if you bought your own helicopter(certified) and fly for fun. I've done it and its awesome, you can fly when ever you want. Dont give power to someone else by instilling trust that they will find or give you a job. Like in any other business find a need and fill it, your training for a job thats doesn't need filled. I'm telling you this because im half you age with a commercial R/C cert with 300 plus of helicopter time and I can't get a job. I dont know how many of the people on this form are connected to flight training, but im not and thats why im telling what the real world is like. Even with all the blood and sweat i've put into this career I'm considering calling it quits. I see it all the time on these heli forms "is this career for me?" "I'm think of becoming a career helicopter pilot." asking those questions on here is like asking a car salesman if I need a new car. I mean well I really do. PM your number I'd love to talk. Good luck
  2. If one tells a lie is he a liar?
  3. Barker are you still around? what have you decided to do in you training?
  4. Hi Tim I do remember seeing you there. I know what's wrong inside the engine. Nothing will change, I'll probably keep on flying it until I can get a job. The engine had 190hrs on it. I should be thankful, I'm 22yrs and I have my own helicopter. Even with all the repairs/updates it's still paid for itself in the 150+ that flown it. Not looking for another homebuilt if I sell my scorpion. How many hrs do u have that commuter now? Did you end up getting your rating? Andy
  5. A week ago I was flying to my local airport to get some instruction to prepare for my check ride. I was feeling good because I just passed my CRH written that morning. I was about a mile north of the LZ when the without warning the engine went silent. The rest is in the paper. http://www.timesbull...SectionID=4&S=1 This was in a Rotorway and the cause was inside the engine. Fuel and ignition system in working order. This isn’t the first time its happened and this time it made me think is it worth it?. I know this Scorpion is an old machine, but, its all I can afford. I guess I'm posting this in hopes of finding a better way of gaining experience. I've seriously thought about selling the Rotorway and going to a school to finish my ratings. But, from reading this form it looks like those ratings are worthless without the hours. Andy
