  1. Hello, I have just finished up my CFI. I am fortunate enough to have two job offers. I have one for flight instruction which is guaranteed hours and students. I also have one for a small ag company mixing and loading with what I believe are genuine opportunities to get minimal flight time but gain ag experience while mixing and loading. I am under the impression that mixing and loading is the normal progression to get into the tight nit group of Ag spraying helicopters. I like the idea of being able to grow within a company and not be treated like a sandbag. However I don't want to go somewhere for two summers and spin my wheels as far as my career goes. At the same time I don't want to go get myself killed in the thing either so I understand learning the business. The ag company is small with a couple of hillers and a 206 however they are growing and I can see that eventually they will need a pilot. They seem to think I could do frost protection this year and cherry drying next year. The flight school is well known and established and like I said would be nearly a guaranteed 1000 hours in less than two years. Im interested in any input you guys may have. I feel crazy for considering turning down guaranteed flight hours!
  2. Hello you beautiful people I am looking for a suiting flight school for myself. YES- i did research before. But unfortunately in my case its not that easy. I´m half German, Half Austrian, currently in Australia and can't wait to finally sit in a helicopter! Have you recently heard any reliable reviews about Hillsboro Aero Academy in Oregon and the EASA/FAA Program? Unfortunately I can only find reviews about the Airplane sector which is (hopefully) not connected to the Helicopter one. Especially because those reviews are horrendous. Are there eventually other schools in the States which provide international students with an F-1 (F1) Visa and an additional EASA license option? Its really hard to get some proper informations about this. Maybe there are some people in this forum who can drop their experience-reports as an international student in the USA no matter if F1 or M1 Visa. Thank you in advance!
  3. General searches don't list much recently, as far as a year and half ago, but does anyone have updated information on NVG Instructor endorsements? Is this strictly through courses, are there DPE's out there to contact, etc? Thanks
  4. I hope this is the right area to post this topic. I currently live in Bakersfield, CA and I have 400 hours in Robinson helicopters. About 60% r-44 time and 40% r-22 time. I was wondering if anyone on here knows information on the current market and demand for helicopters in this area. I know there are a lot of private helicopters that do not advertise but they are heavily involved in frost protection and the agriculture industry. I am mainly just looking for some info and potential work (any work in the industry, not just flying). So far, the only local helicopter companies I know are SRT and San Joaquin Valley helicopters. I know I should move locations to get myself a job, but I currently do not have that option. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  5. Greetings, I just recently got my CFII and went on my first job interview for an instructor position at the school where I have done most of my training. It did not go well at all. The critique that I got from the DPE for both CFI and CFII were positive and I know that he is honest and fair. The ground portion of my interview went well. I felt calm, organized and professional. However, as soon as we got to the aircraft for the flight portion, it was like I had forgotten how to teach and fly. I was flying with the cheif instructor with whom I had never flown with before and in a patter that I was unfamilliar with. He said that I was instructing well transitioning from the ramp to the taxiway(start up, taxi, air-taxi, quickstop, takeoff), then he flew the first pattern to show me where to turn (it is not a standard pattern). It was all down hill from there. His critique about my teaching from then on was that I was not authoritative enough, as if everything I was saying was like I was asking him a question. For instance, in my head I was thinking "starting my descent by lowering collective with right pedal for trim, looking for about a 500fpm descent rate. I want to keep my spot between the compass and trim strings for a nice normal approach angle" apparently came out as "should I start my approach here and does this angle look good?" This uncertainty led to several mistakes including not hitting my spot, and probably the worst autorotations I have done since I was a student pilot. Has anyone out there had a similar experience or maybe had a student display this type of student to instructor transition problem?
