Hello,

My name is Albert and I'm currently in the middle of commercial training. I would say at this point, I'm definitely interested in eventually being a fire fighting pilot at some point. I would like to get a better scope of that field with some general questions. Some examples:

 

*What company are you currently with?

*What are the minimum requirements for applying?

*What is your schedule like?

*What is a work day like in the field?

*What can I do to prepare for this field?

*What are some risks involved with this work?

*What is the estimated starting salary? (optional)

 

Any other insightful input is appreciated, thank you in advance.

It's a great career, but figuring out what the fickle USFS wants next year can be very stressful. I made the choice to fly the S-61 and it has been a rocky road for many of us, we are still not sure if we will have a place fire fighting for much longer. Choose your first company very carefully, it can make the difference of a good experience to a very traumatic one. :)

 

Good luck!
