  1. I would appreciate any advice with anyone who has experience using MSA Gallet helmets. I am currently using Gentex. I have no real issues with the helmet, just wanting something lighter and looking for more comfort. I guess my biggest question is the Gallet worth that much money? I don't mind paying for something that is going to last and is worth the money. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!!
  2. Are there any companies in the GOM that does not require an instrument ticket? Or does anyone have advice on jobs with 1,500 + and no instrument ticket? Thanks for any help.
  3. Will any companies take you in the gulf without an instrument ticket? Or does anyone have a suggestion on 1,500 hours-no instrument on where to start looking for a job outside of instructing? Any advice would be appreciated.
  4. This is a scam. I went through the same deal. They will send you money orders and you are supposed to go and cash them and send them the cash to a address that is supposed to arrange your travel. The only problem is the money orders are fraudulant. I thought something was up when I recieved the money orders so I took them to the post office and the postal inspector seized them and I gave them all the information I had on the company. Let me guess it is Hallmark Tellecommunications!! Don't fall for this scam!!!!
  5. Northstar Aviation has a new website, which is nsaheli.com and they are now a 141 school.
  6. Does anyone have any comments on Applebee Aviation? They are offering seasonal jobs flying Hughes 500's. They will offer you 25 hours of time on the 500 at $499.00 per hour, and if satisfactory they will offer you a job at the end. Is the risk of spending 12,000 dollars worth it, not knowing if a job is guaranteed? Any comments please.
  7. Does anyone know how to get in touch with Heloair in Virginia. I am interested in time building. Thanks

  11. I just finished my CFI at Norhtstar. I was a student there from 0 hours to CFI. Friendly staff and great instructors! No problem scheduling flight time, they will even come in on weekends. The school is in a beautiful mountain region. I would reccomend this school to anyone!
