  1. I see. Thanks guys for all the help. I don't know if you guys have heard anything about the civilian world but if you have too much flight time, you are deemed "untrainable." I guess its because companies think you are set in your ways. That why I had mentioned the amount of time I have. I know a lot of guys who have 10k+ hours but cannot land a job at a legacy airline, i.e. Delta, United, AA... Thence the "Cant teach and old dog new tricks." Hopefully one day we can all meet and grab a beer, and talk shop. Cheers.
  2. Noted. Not trying to have a pissing contest. Just trying to get info. My experience doesn't translate to rotorcraft.
  3. Thanks guys, thanks for all the help! I hope I can compete. There are a lot of great candidates going for this position and I wish everybody the best of luck.
  4. I've always wanted to do military and civilian flying. I finally got to a company that I want to stay with for the long run, and while I'm still young I can accomplish this goal of flying military helicopters. So I'm more so looking at reserve and guard units. Ideally around the NY area.
  5. Hey guys, Just wondering if a lot of civilian flight time be beneficial or a hinderance? Ive been hearing both. Like you can't teach an old dog new tricks. I am 28 about to be 29 next week and I am an ATP multi engine rated pilot for the airlines with 5000 hours total time; 4000 of that is Jet time. My warrant officer strength manager says that, it can be held against me because now I really need to know my stuff (which isn't a problem except I'm a noob with rotors). Just wanted your inputs.
