CharyouTree Posted October 13, 2013 Report Share Posted October 13, 2013 So...here I am again. Last time I asked this question was 3 years ago, and I was yet again deployed. Fortunately I happened upon a stint down at the training site (Ft Rucker) for a while before being called back to my home unit (I'm national guard) for the deployment I'm currently on. Here's my deal: I'm currently sitting at ..1205 hours, total time; 1100 or so in the UH-60A/L, and some more in a TH-67 (Bell 206), and about 200 in full motion simulators. +500 as a PiC, as the army logs it. I've been through the instructor pilot course, and have my CFII, as well as through the "tactical operations officer" course, but I don't know if that has any specific translations outside of government contracting, or LE. As I said, I'm currently deployed until the beginning of the new year (we got cut significantly short, which is good for going home, bad for accruing flight time), so no going to Las Vegas for me, yet again, this year. My biggest question is how should I go about applying for jobs, particularly while I'm still deployed? I want to be considered for positions, and be visible on the radar (ha) of companies that are hiring, but at the same timea) I don't want to waste their time, or possibly put myself in a bad light by being unavailable if my some stroke of luck my application was enough to get me looked at, and I'm going to hopefully be adding some more time to my logbook at what is generally considered to be an important time, as far as I can tell. (Just over 1000 hours, and for a particular job I'm looking at, they want 1200 total). Is it ok for me to submit these applications being just over those bare minimums, or am I better off waiting until I can add another...200 hours on to that total? Suggestions, advice, and of course job openings, are always welcome. -Mike 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
