Looking to move to Phoenix AZ area with my wife for her job. Just curious if anyone has suggestions on good places to work there, or any advice on the area. Any info is greatly appreciated! I have about 1200 hrs right now, and will have more by the time we get there. 135, photo, film, tour, and flight instruction experience. About 50 hrs turbine time.

I've been considering moving back to Phoenix. Best thing I've found is to just go offshore and commute. I've been offshore for a few months now. Only other way I've known people to work in Phoenix are EMS pilots or people commuting from the ditch/Vegas. I'm over 2000hrs now and been keeping an eye out on occasion out that way...

That's because we're all probably thinking the same thing? With only 1200 hours your best bet is most likely the Grand Canyon,...hope you like commuting!

 

Yep what he said. The south rim is your closest bet. Should be about a 4-5 hour drive. Week on week off, flying 206's hot, heavy and high. You will get some good experience!

I guess that's one way too look at it. Another would be that the GOM is a good paying helicopter job that flies a lot. I enjoy the exceptional maintenance, reliable paychecks, and busy days. It works just fine for me.

Depends on your point of view. I commute from WA to the gom. There are some local ems jobs in my area, closest is 2hrs away. I have no interest. If I'm going to commute, I'd rather fly in the gulf. There are a few utility jobs near home too but even commuting all the way to LA I'm home more often. Everyone's boat floats differently. As long as it floats I guess.
