p2xheli Posted October 29, 2013 Report Share Posted October 29, 2013 Hello All,First time poster, but was turned on to the wealth of info here by RkyMtnHi about a year and a half ago, and have been a follower since. Thanks again D.P., sorry I'm so bad at keeping in touch. So, I'm looking for some input and CONSTRUCTIVE advice. Here's my predicament. I'm a CFII at a busy school, and volunteer for a non-profit SAR group flying an R44. I'm able to fly 500+ hours per year at the school, and a few more for SAR. I'm currently just over 1300 hours. I've decided EMS is where I want to end up. Yes, I've done my research and talked to many pilots in multiple fields. So, the question is, if I decided to stay in my current position for another year or so, I'll be able to build just a little turbine time, maybe 50 or so hours in a 206, or, head to the ditch or Vegas for a stint of all turbine time to get above the 2000. Seems like at this point the Gulf is mins of 1500, which will probably take until next spring for me, and my current boss is looking for a time commitment from me. I'm recently single, so moving across the country is not a big deal.(currently in the D.C. area) I know there's many threads on my situation, but always looking for fresh perspectives in the current market. I look forward to meeting you guys and gals at Heli Success! Thanks 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
