  1. Ebay is probably your best bet. What size and is set up for NVG's?
  2. Many companies do ask. On the application, they will ask if your medical has ever been denied, revoked, suspended, etc. for any reason. I've seen it a lot. People seem to think HIPAA laws prohibit employers (or anybody else) from asking you for medical information. They don't.
  3. As Buzzkill said, tours is probably the quickest way to build the time. Although Papillon will get the job done, I have never heard one good thing about the place. Maverick has a good reputation and pays well. Hawaiian tours are also an option. Most EMS operations are single pilot and employers look for that. When the time comes to start applying for EMS jobs, I urge you to find an IFR operator. Makes the job much easier and safer, IMO. Definitely easier. Good luck.
  4. Yeah, yeah. Definitely. Three tranches, minimum.
  5. Plenty of people make money in aviation. It sounds like you have what could be considered a half way reliable customer base and already have the certificates. Have you asked to look at the books? I wouldn't do much until then. One thing I have noticed, just about every small operator I know is an A&P mechanic as well as a pilot. Being able to keep the aircraft available and safe is key. Good luck.
  6. Ten minute google search. https://www.helikopterfliegen.de/forum/index.php?showtopic=834
  7. Going into a Blackhawk as an SIC is a terrible plan if EMS is the goal. Network, sure but that's any job. Listen to Buzzkill. He's actually DONE this. He was smart though, he went to the airlines. I would strongly encourage you to consider that.
  8. I would look at Grand Canyon tour operators. Lots of pilots with your hours have built a lot of time quickly doing this.
