  1. Excellent information thank you so much for the insight! Networking is obviously the biggest thing...need to build mine up a bit!
  2. That’s pretty much what I figured would be best. I have about 240 NVG hours right now, will be trying to get a lot more night unaided as well. I greatly appreciate all the mentorship from everyone!
  3. Will definitely look into that. Hoping with the covid restrictions lifting that they’re flying some more!
  4. Single pilot I have not. I’m leaning mostly towards EMS as the end goal.
  5. I absolutely have more to learn and am happy to do so whenever I can. I've spoken to some folks I know in the industry but don't know/haven't met any current/prior SIC's or even really any two pilot operators outside of the military. Seems to be somewhat more rare outside of fire/heavy lift. From the little I have heard it seems to be non sole manipulator and difficult to build any PIC time with. I was basing my question off the job postings I have seen which almost all request x amount of PIC helicopter time (many at 2000+ which I don't have and would need to build). I did get my
  6. Is SIC very valuable in civilian world though? In the Army you’re hands on flying more often as SIC and logging PIC time, I’ve heard as SIC in civilian you basically just sit and watch gauges. Seems like it wouldn’t be very valuable time with all the helicopter PIC time needed in the industry?
  7. I’ll definitely look into Chesapeake. I’ve always wanted to fly the 500. I was also looking around NYC as well, didn’t know it was that fast of a time builder. I do have my R44 PIC sign off so I’m good there. Happy to fly it but would obviously prefer turbine. Thanks for the tips!
  8. Definitely planning on doing this for next year. Also going to the RTAG convention (they have a lot of rotary stuff as well at the convention). I'm currently working with an operator at a new satellite tour location in Idaho but it has been VERY slow to start. We'll see if it pans out. Are there any good tour operators you know of that fly a ton? I would be happy flying 8 hours a day non stop to get to 2000 for EMS work.
  9. Not a bad idea actually for Rucker. Teaching BWS could be alright...
  10. Have a friend who interviewed and everything through CBP but as soon as Covid hit they put him on indefinite pause so he's still sitting on his hands. Guard isn't an option due to the lower back body armor business unfortunately. Been applying to everywhere that requires 1500 with no luck so far. Looking at maybe trying to dry cherries this coming season in WA but who knows. I'd be more than happy to fly AS350's in Vegas for sure but not sure if they're even still doing that. I'll look into it and send out some resumes. I'm fine financially (wife is a PA) so that helps a ton but yeah...times a
  11. I'm a recently separated UH-60M IP/AMC that's now finding myself in the Covid civilian world in an awkward spot trying to figure out the best path forward. I originally got my rotary PPL in an S-300 as a civilian and now have Commercial CFII Rotary with S-70 type and about 1150 total time. When I got my PPL (~2009), it seemed like once you passed 1000 hours, a lot of opportunities opened up. But as I research open pilot positions across the country that doesn't seem to hold true anymore. It seems like every job requires at least 1500 PIC helicopter time with a lot of specific experience I don'
  12. How many is plenty Juan? Curious how everyone is doing out there after flight school.
  13. I have talked to a few guys and can pass forward the info if you'd like?
  14. The last spread I saw still showed 60 guys as overstrength so I'm hoping for the best. If I have to stay with the Army for the full ADSO then I'll just apply to the CG later with more hours, not the end of the world. It will likely be a year before I apply as well so things may change. Wishful thinking and all but can't hurt to apply for the conditional haha hope you're having a good time up in New York!
