  1. Seems like I'am trying to jump too soon. LE experience would be what I'am after, beings CBP is my ultimate goal as a career. It's one county away and a 407 position. As of now, I fly 2 to 3 hours a day with over 30 landings. And only see shore once every few days. But, the schedule is nice. 14/14. I would think that LE experience is what CBP is looking for, and this is a place I could get it. But wow, what a crappy pay scale for an aviator. It's a hard pill to swallow. I'll apply, maybe get an interview, and then can ask the important questions. Besides, interview practice never hurts anyon
  2. Here is a link to the job. http://agency.governmentjobs.com/volusiaco/default.cfm?action=viewJob&jobID=553196
  3. Flying as a LEO is what I'd like to do as a career. I see it is a job that could be extremely rewarding. What seems like a great opportunity in the county next to me in Florida just opened up. I'am about to apply, and concerned with the pay. I fly offshore now, and make in the low 60's. I also fly in the National Guard. This job only pays $39k a year. That's before taxes. How could a man justify that switch?
  4. So are all aviation assets now with CBP? I know it used to say border patrol on the side of the little birds, but now it all seems to be CBP. I've got a good bit of time in the 60, and the 206 as I fly both on a regular basis, young, and willing to live in a not so great place to get into this career. Are they willing to hire a rotary guy or does it have to be dual rated?
  5. Will they hire rotary only guys? How do I find a recruiter if there is such a thing?
  6. Was this for a light, medium, or heavy position? It seems like they are actively pursuing medium and heavy guys. Don't know why they would want to make it hard on someone they need.
