  1. Now that I can no longer fly for fun, it seems that if I ever want to fly again, I have to get hired to do so,...which sucks balls 'cause I really don't want a flying career anymore! I would actually love to take this job, a part-time flying gig sounds great, but $10-$15 bucks a day! Even when I had just one months experience driving a semi I was able to get a part-time job driving one just four hours a day for $100 bucks a day! I realise R44 tour operations aren't huge money makers and entry level pilots have to pay their dues and all, but we should be worth more than a burger flipper
  2. Howdy, I know this may not be the exact place for this inquiry but I need to start somewhere. A little background; I’m 26, have a background in agriculture as both an operator and mechanic, and experience in the heavy equipment field. This isn’t the pitchfork and straw hat picture most will get,it is working with auto guidance, mapping, recording, and operating the newest and largest equipment in the industry. I have struggled to find my place and enjoy moving frequently to find new challenges and obstacles to tackle. I am very particular with safety and precision, which I feel may be more imp
  3. Been thinking, and the highest paying entry-level flying job I've ever applied/interviewed for was Helislave at $2,000 a month. Where I currently work driving a truck, the starting pay is just over $21 bucks an hour. So, if I worked at my current job the same number of hours that Freddy shackled me in for I'd actually make just over $5,000 a month,...and that's with a lunch break! Of course this is only five days a week and at Helislave you had to be willing to come in on your days off, for no extra pay of course, whereas if I had to come in on Saturday at my current job,...I'd make mo
  4. Hello to everybody reading, First off, this website is awesome, there is plethora of info on here. A bit of background of why I am posting this. I am currently a 2LT in Texas Army NG. I am branch qualified as an Infantry Officer. I have been flying fixed wing on the civ side(trying to get my PPL) for about a year now. I never exercised the thought of becoming an Aviator in the Army until a couple of months ago, since I thought to myself it was too late make the switch. A couple of months ago I met a the aviation recruiter for Texas, I just decided to ask him a couple of questions to s
  5. Hey everyone, I'm a KC-10 Flight Engineer. I'm looking at making the switch to Army Helicopter pilot. I'm curious if any other pilots on here were prior FE's and may have some experience on what the transition is like, what FE knowledge came in handy for WOFT, etc. I guess this would also be a good question for prior fixed wing people as well. As a KC-10 FE, I'm proficient in not only aircraft systems/engineering, but also in IFR, TOLD computations/chart reading, *some* VFR (not a lot of VFR in the KC-10 world, lol), and reading Jeppesen Departure and Landing plates (which ties in with IFR, I
  6. I am seeking advice on going from reserve status to submitting my Warrant Packet and going active duty in aviation. Any advice will help. 1) I am currently a reservist drilling with my unit, normal reserve status. 2) My goal is to go active duty with my Warrant Packet. 3) I have been told a few different things as far as how to get into the active side of aviation. a) I must apply as a reservist and go thorough training, graduate, report to a reserve aviation unit, then apply for active duty b ) Get a conditional release from the reserve and submit that with my initial
  7. Hello everyone, I'm a new member on this group. Looks like a great forum. I need some help. I wish to become a helicopter pilot and would really appreciate your guidance. (background:I'm in my second last year of engineering from India) I had the following few questions in this regard: Your help is much appreciated.  Which country has the best institutes for helicopter training?  Among the institutes in the recommended country which are ranked on the top?  Which helicopter should one train on?  Which is the best terrain for helicopter training?  Are there any special requirements for
  8. Hi to all heli pros in this group. I'm looking for a little help in order to make a novel I'm writing more accurate. My central character is a Soviet chopper pilot based in Kabul during the Soviet/Afghanistan War mid 1980s. His buddy is the gunner on their Mil Mi-24 gunship. While I've done a ton of research on the bird, the armaments, the war, the country, etc., I have no clue how to handle the communications between pilot and gunner, crew and air traffic control, or between birds in flight. Plus, I will have other questions, like: can the pilot fire the machine guns, rockets, etc? Or does
  9.

  10. Today marks the 8-year anniversary of when I got my commercial rating and with 400 hours began looking for work as a pilot (after several attempts I came to the conclusion that I being a teacher wasn’t going to work out, and thus am not a CFI). Just a month later I got my first interview. It was showing clients real estate that was for sale in Myrtle Beach from an R-44. Just 2 days a week, $400 bucks a month, but I lost out to a CFI. Anyway, 6 years later (2 years ago) having gotten no other interviews (I used to come here a lot and bitch about that, among other things, but now I just
  11. I want to own my own helicopter, but I can't afford one so here's my awesome idea! Unemployed CFII's are a dime a dozen, and pay to ferry flights are for chumps! So to all you newbie/wannabie pilots out there, instead of spending money on your IR, CFI, and CFII ratings, take that money and give it to me. I'll use it to buy an R44 and start up my own tour/photo company. Then you can pay me just $100/hr to do all the flying! You'll get all the experience and hours you need to one day get hired in the Grand Canyon, for an awesomely low price! Of course I'll tag along so that I can log the

  13. Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and I'm very confused on how to become a hems pilot or what are the requirements. I'm 18 and graduated from high school last yeah, I took some college credit courses such as English, Speech, Biology, Psychology. Right now I'm planning to register on a private schools for pilots here in Florida. But I need some guidance. I appreciate any help, advice you could give.
  14. Hello everyone! Im currently a UH-1Y Crew Chief serving in the Marine Corps. My plan if I am not selected by the Army WO program is to pursue a civilian flight career. I understand that the field is very competative and would like to know if Crew Chief flight hours, to include NVG hours, are at all valuble when applying for civil piloting positions.
  15. Hi everyone. I am new in this forum and I would like to consult your opinion. About what happening to me. I told you a bit about my history... I was electrician in 2008 in Spain and everything look good to me to try to get my dream become a heli pilot so I move to barcelona I take a ATPL(H)(JAA) course (I did 119h in R22, 25h in AS355 and 60 in EC135 sim). Everything going very well in Spain was a lot of opportunities for pilot without experience as I will be. I finished in 2010 and everything in Spain turned wrong. The crisis start and I was not able to get a job as pilot there.
  16. There are new regulations for 135, among others, concerning the pilot training/testing. "for rotorcraft pilots, procedures for aircraft handling in flat-light, whiteout, and brownout conditions, including methods for recognizing and avoiding those conditions. " I'd assume that is theoretical training/testing? I would have a hard time testing my pilots' white-out capabilities in South Carolina. 2014-03689_PI.pdf
  17. Hey everyone; I write this post to ask for some outside opinions on my current situation. Let me start with the story. I am still in the stages of Senior Schooling, and since i was about 12, I have wanted to become a helicopter pilot. My dad once took me on a ride when we were on vaccation once. Since then, it has been the most memorable experience in my life, thus far. Now, as my school years come to a close, I am placed into a position where I need to look towards Uni, where I want to work, part time jobs, etc. I have made it clear (to my parents) that I want to be a Helicopter Pilot,
