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.
Ive been using this forum for years, not posting but searching for the information I've needed. And it has been very helpful. That being said I am a CFII with 320hrs heli 100hrs dual given and 510 TT I also have a CDL with a hazmat tanker endorsement. Ive been calling and sending resumes with no results, usally cant get past the receptionist. Im willing to relocate, work as a fueler, fly SIC, fly tours (I have 100hrs R44) , be an intern, move out of the country, hell I'll clean toilets, dont care just want to get flying again. I have good references at all my past employers, I just need someone to give me a chance. I know its not the right time of year to looking as well. But I'm thinking about going on a road trip visiting every flight school, and commercial opperator I can find with in a couple states radius handing out resumes and shaking hands. I'm also thinking of going WOFT, planning to talk with a recuriter next week. Any guidance, advice, or leads would be greatly appreciated.
