  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
