It was a great event. Thank you to all those who came to the FAASTEAM seminar as well. I have some updates to make to my IIMC presentation and I will post it here on the forums for those who wish to d

Done. Thanks for pointing it out!

Can't wait! Every year it only gets better. I've had leave in the books and condo reservations in work for months already.

 

Edit: Loved the VR pin scholarship "fundraiser", got any left overs DP? Mine is shined and ready, It was a great idea pinning them on our name badges and writing our screen names for the event. I liked being able to put a face with a screen name.

Hey Folks.. we do have pins left, but only a few. I'll call Lyn tomorrow and see about getting more. The goal is to raise $$ for Scholarships and i have some ideas about that as well.

 

We will be there of course.. one of my favorite things to go to.. and, one of the best kept secrets in the industry STILL.

 

Note: two of the few pins left spoken for above. :-)

To All,

 

The usual four pre-H-Success FAASTeam members have been collaborating to bring everyone new and up to date presentations.

 

Kudos to Jason Dykstra for his vision in this area.

 

I look forward to seeing everyone there "again".

 

Mike

Hey All,

 

Lyn and i finally connected yesterday and talked about the pins. Here's what we decided:

 

We only have a few left, ten or fifteen, and depending on the interest we probably will not order more this year. We do however want to raise more money for the scholarships so we are asking for a donation of $25 or more per pin. This is for a good cause and i hope you get that..

 

To help motivate contributions Heli-Ops will match any donations up to $500. We also encourage other operators, or individuals, to offer to match the donations.

 

For you new folks (welcome to the VR Forum), the pins are two gold letters, VR, that we attach to our name badges to identify us as forum members, it makes it easier to find and meet each other. I'll get a photo of them up later today when i get to the hangar.

 

If you are interested send me a pm and we'll go from there.

 

aloha,

ps, for the last two years some of the people that won the scholarships passed them on to people that needed the $$ more.. pretty awesome. One of them is on this forum regularly. HeliSuccess is the best kept secret in the industry. Period. I tell every candidate that i speak with about it, it is surprising how many don't know about it yet. If you are wondering if you should go, you should. And, you should sign up NOW as it sells out every year.

Ok folks, thanks for all the offers, we now only have ten left for sure.. and we've raised over $500 already.. nice. Here are some photos of the pins.

 

I have to ask Lyn how he wants the checks made out, my bad sorry, but send your addresses to dp770@comcast dot net and i'll get them in the mail.

I love the scholarship idea and the pins have produced well, and helped the VR community. I think we can do better though. How about selling extra raffle tickets, or maybe even a separate raffle within the VR community to up the funds.

 

I don't need the scholarship, but I would love the opportunity to pass it on, and maybe a better chance of scoring some cool heli gear.

 

Edit: Give me some ideas and I will try to help gather some contributions.

I know that I met a lot of you guys there last year, but I'm still not sure if I can make it this year. I have to spend the time instead trying to get on with one of two companies that'll be hiring in the next two months and I'm going to be busy putting every effort I can in getting a job.

 

If you don't see me there it means I landed my dream job, and if I do show it'll be to beg for jobs during the job fair.

 

Don't take it the wrong way, but I hope I miss it.

Add Air Evac, Flight Safety Int'l and yes, Barry Lloyd, program manager (read Chief Pilot in pilot talk) for CalFire was there. Where else would you get to rub elbows and have a beer with all of these people at the same time and place? This is five years worth of networking shrunk into 2 and a half days......

Ok boys and girls! :-) Here is the paypal address to donate for your pins. This is Lyn's address so the money will go directly to him and at the end he'll tell me how much i need to match. Thanks so much for the offers already.

 

I will mail the pins when he gives me the address, for those of you that sent me your addresses already i will try to get them off this week. We are just about to get caught up after Mikes visit and the seminars.

 

We usually meet a couple of times, Goldy sets that up, either way we'll make it happen. There is a British Pub on the first floor that lets us use a back room to get together, we'll probably meet there again a few times.

 

Zippie, love your avatar and the fact that you put your name and photo on there, great way to network.

 

Fly safe folks.
