Do you know of anyone that has worked a tour season for TEMSCO that has lived out the season in a camper/RV? I know that living in the provided housing is all part of the experience, but my wife and I would really like to get the full experience (including the drive from the lower 48 to Juneau/Skagway). Having our own place, even if it's only a fifth wheel camper, is a must with my wife and dog. As we think this through, the questions that keep coming up are, "Are there affordable RV camping options for an extended stay?", "Will we be able to navigate the ALCAN during early spring and mid-fall", better yet "When exactly are new TEMSCO recruits required to be there for the start of the season/training and when does it end?". Flying for TEMSCO is at least another 2 years away for me as I am a relatively fresh CFI. However, with how tough it is to find information on this specific subject, I thought getting started sooner is better than later. Thanks in advance for any insight. -J
So I won't elaborate too much but I'm Army w/1200 hrs turbine looking for a job in the not so near future just for the flying and the experience. Temsco interests me because of the environment and terrain. Not to mention, while I might have the hours for a slightly better paying entry job, I may still need somewhat of an entry into commercial flying. Enough said! Question; does Temsco frown on their pilots flying for the guard? If not, how difficult is it to arrange the schedule to a weekend a month and 2.5 weeks mid summer? Oh if it's not too obvious, I am absolutely oblivious to the commercial rotary world.
