  5. Hello, I'm Barry, a career firefighter/EMT building helicopter flight experience. I have shared and/or completed four cross country ferry flights in the R-44. I am continuously learning from other pilots and technicians. If you have a company repositioning flight, or a ferry flight and you would like a handy fella to bring along, I'm your guy. I have 25 years of EMT, Fire, and police experience. Maybe you can use me for back country aid skills or maybe you just want to mentor a guy who is looking forward to aerial firefighting, SAR, and HEMS in another thousand hours or so. My total time is low, approx 400 hours, but I have a positive attitude and work hard along the way. I'm a goood listener, storyteller, and I spring for fuel and beverages. Factory delivery flights sought too. References available. Thanks, BP

  10. El Nino's comming, so be safe, and remember; Inadvertent,…there’s that first word often overlooked during discussions of IIMC. in·ad·ver·tent [ìnnəd vúrt'nt] adj 1. resulting from carelessness: done unintentionally or without thinking 2. careless: failing to pay enough attention or take enough care Trying to prepare for an IIMC encounter is like trying to plan what you’ll do during Saturday night’s drinking binge! Sure you can prepare for an engine failure, or a chip light suddenly coming on, those things just “happen”. IIMC on the other hand does not! It occurs because you suddenly turned off your brain and started flying stupidly! You have two choices at the first sign of deteriorating weather, COMMIT TO IFR, or LAND NOW! Once you ignore both those choices it’s too late and your fate is now in the hands of random chance. If you do make it out in one piece consider yourself to be extremely lucky, because you just survived what kills a lot of pilots! “Both pilots were instrument rated”,…such a common quote in accident reports. Remember, you got into this mess because you were, “failing to pay enough attention and/or not thinking”. “I’ll just look at the artificial horizon and make a 180 to get clear”, or “I’ll just execute a steady climb to get on top of it.” These are rational thoughts. Do you really believe that rational thought will follow the irrational thinking that suddenly turned the windscreen white? Don’t kid yourself, you cannot prepare for IIMC. You can only prepare for what to do before it occurs, and even then, you still have to listen to what you learned!
  11. Persons wanted to pay for a ferry flight from CA to FL. Great PIC and X/C time building opportunity on a Robinson R44 ferry flight from California to Florida (SRQ) within the next couple of days (flexible timing around October 25, 2015) on a two to three day trip with approx. 25hrs actual flight time at $290 p./hr. (Hotel expenses included). You will meet Tim, our company pilot in San Francisco and then pick-up the aircraft to be ferried. Please contact Nick for further details: (941) 355-1525 niclas@heliaf.com
  12. If you are looking for time building, I am planning a flight in my R44 Raven II from San Diego (SEE) to Seattle (BFI) on or about June 12th July. The plan is to head up the coast through the LA airspace, which is an adventure in itself. If everything goes as planned, it should be roughly a 15 hour flight, with or without an overnight stay. I am an 1,100 hour private pilot with 350 helicopter hours, many of which are cross country. My R44 flys great and is equipped with two com radios, stereo Bose headsets and two Foreflight packaged iPads with ADS- In. I am looking for a commercial pilot or a CFI to share $200.00 per hour of the expenses, plus personal expenses. I have made similar flights on numerous occasions and am along just to provide relief and experience.
  13. For newer, especially middle-aged or career changing aspirant commercial pilots, there exist many theories on how to get past 200 hours or to 1000 hours, how or why to get turbine time, etc. However, there may be no real methods to do it inexpensively or in short time unless you hit the dream job lotto or something, or just pay up. Many practices, the ins and outs of ferry flights, bird chasing or photography or cherry drying are tossed around on the forums. Meanwhile intrinsically valuable experimental medium lift twin turbine time is potentially available in experimental aircraft approved for exhibition may exist. Proficiency flights are integral to exhibition authorizations for aircraft with Special Airworthiness Certification under the Experimental designation. As are X-C flights to air shows, etc. For the price of shared expenses (fuel, insurance, etc., in excess of $300+/hr in particular), aircraft co-owners or ownership interest holders and/or flight participants could get a lot of time together or solo, getting each PIC time and or 2nd in command time, or even instrument time if the experimental ship was set up for it. Sure, first you may be required to hold and appropriate class and category rating to be PIC. If considering only shared expenses, compare that to R22 rental. Why hasn't anyone tried this yet? I am hoping for thoughtful input with from forum participants citing FAR or other official guidance. This conversation is not represented as a loophole or work around for the regulations intended to keep us safe. It is provided as a discussion of an alternative method of investment in your, my, or a persons' aviation proficiency. Think of it as a practicing to drive a Winnebago in a Winnebago of which you own part, or of which you share in the cost of operation. But this Winnebago flies, and has twin turbines.
  14. Good morning all, I would like your advice on an issue, especially from the graybeards on the board like Goldy, Mike, Dennis, Francis, et al... The consensus I have seen over the past few years has been consistent and pretty emphatic regarding advanced training, namely: "don't pay for advanced training out of your own pocket, because when you get hired your employer will train you anyway." But what about this scenario: I'm an inexperienced helicopter pilot--approximately 170 hours (50 in R44) and zero turbine time so far, of course. I just completed my commercial rating and am now working on CFI. I have an opportunity in front of me to ferry a Bell 206 LongRanger to Alaska. It would be about 20 hours of flight time, including international border procedures and everything else incidental to a long cross country--in short, a terrific training experience, I think. But I would have to pay my own way, at a reduced rate. Rather than $750/hour for the B206, my share would be paying $250/hour. What do you think? Would you do it, for the chance for the turbine transition training as well as the cross country experience?
  15. Need Robinson-qualified pilot to ferry new R44 from factory to east coast in early August 2013. Please reply to whirly.guy@gmail.com
  16. Build Turbine Time on a ferry flight departing in Tallahassee Regional Airport (KTLH) to Sarasota-Bradenton Intl. Airport (KSRQ) for just $450 an hour on the Robinson R66 Turbine. The flight itself takes about 3 to 4 hours but you will have a safetypilot (CFI) with you and can weather decide to do the standard flight like said above to get experience in a Turbine powered Aircraft or you decide to do some advanced Training maneuvers on the way down: For example: The Aircraft is full IFR equipped and you can do some IFR Approaches to log IFR, Turbine, X/C and PIC Time. Or you decide to do a Turbine Transition Course, which includes a Total of about 8 hours of flying and 5 hours of ground. You see, there are several ideas how we can do the flight and it is definitely a fun Tour. We will land somewhere grap a coffee and make a nice trip.

  18. Hello Forum, I am rather new to all of this internet job searching, I am used to the older days of finding work by going into a place and asking for an application. So hopefully this finds you all and you can help give me some pointers or direct me towards a CFII job or building hours to get that CFII job. I am a recent graduate from Bristow Academy here in New Iberia, LA. I have a total of 172.2 hours in helicopters and 37.1 of that is in R22. I know that in order to instruct in the R22 I need 200TT and 50 hours in the R22. So that is the next goal is to get me to that amount of hours. I am basically willing to do whatever it takes to get to that goal. Pay for flights, tag along on ferry flights. If there is anyone out there that knows the quickest and reasonable price for building hours please let me know, whether on here or my email lmtcharvey@yahoo.com. I am not shooting boatpix down but I do not need any information about them, already been contacted and did my research, I am okay with finding a different route. Your responses are much appreciated!! Thank You.
