  1. Hello,

    You provided useful information on my post "Experience Hour Gap"  I would like to touch base with you privately to run a plan of mine by you and obtain your feedback.  Would you be open to an offline discussion?  It would greatly help with my progress in this industry.

    Regards,

    Rudy

      Hello Spike, 

      Checking in to see if you would consider a side chat, whichever medium you're comfortable with?  I would like to get your point of view on overall challenges and possible solutions for pilots to get the right training they need.  Would Skype, FB, or any other online chat tool work for you?

      Sincerely

      Rudy

      Hi Rudy,

      I apologize for taking so long to get back to you. If you're still interested, ask any questions you'd like and I'll do my best to answer them. However, I do work and have a life so please allow me the flexibility to get back to you when I can and, this site is fine with me for the medium....

  3. I was under that impression with UAS taking jobs. Here are a couple links with references about the ever slightly expanding Helicopter Industry. Link below - refererence page 4 (Civil Helicopter Personnel Demand) https://www.boeing.com/resources/boeingdotcom/commercial/market/pilot-technician-services/assets/downloads/2019_pto_infographic.pdf Link below - More industries are using helicopters https://www.suu.edu/blog/2020/06/aviation-helicopter-pilot-shortage.html
  4. Appreciate the input. This is right along the lines of my current situation. Unfortunately, I wasn't thinking to be a pilot when I was in. I was a data/comms grunt. I have my post 911 GI-Bill I'm using for my CPL and most likely CFII. I'm foreseeing the 2K gap to get into the qualified experience for jobs. Finding a more efficient solution to this topic is a good start
  5. Thank you for the information, advice and bringing understanding to this topic. Do you have any input on building hours in the international scene?
  6. Hello Everyone, Bringing up an old subject and looking for 2021 ideas to apply to it. Yes, the “Experience Hour Gap”. I’m doing some homework on how to build hours after I get my CPL. Other than the standard way, get my CFII and become an instructor to teach, or join the military. I’m looking for ideas on other efficient ways to build hours. This is what I came up with but have no idea if they are worth it or even valid: · Find an operator that has a side seat open at a busy airport space, flying a particular type of asset. it Is it worth or attractive to employers, building 50 - 100 hours side seating in a Jet Ranger at a busy airport/tower? · After CPL, start specialized training towards a particular career type. Move over sees for a couple years to build hours towards that career. This is under the assumption its easier employment with a US rating. Are building 1500 -2000 hours in Asia Pacific or South America recognized by US employers? · With a CPL, apply for a tier 1/tier 2 job in the US, work out a deal for more hours with less pay or loan pay back. Has anyone had experience with this? Anything else out there I haven’t thought about? Look forward to getting everyone’s feedback on this.
  7. Hello, This is not for a flight contract/in air work. This is paper related work.

  8. So far other than paying for the Global Commercial Helicopter Market report 2017-2027 for 5K. I found this report for free https://www.faa.gov/data_research/aviation/aerospace_forecasts/media/FY2017-37_FAA_Aerospace_Forecast.pdf On page 85, there is a projection for rotorcraft pilots for the coming years. Just doesn't specify if they are PPL, CPL or CFI. Still digging...
