I've been thinking. If they post one more time, I'll send them a note saying, "I'll come work for you,...if you pay for the lipo." :)

Its funny, not only has Novictor posted yet again, but I just saw a new post from Helislave with "flight weight" of less than 190 lbs in bold type!

 

Maybe this new shortage is of light weight pilots,...aaahhh ha ha ha haaaa!

I've been told the reason they require you to have the R44 CFI sign off is because their novelty act is throwing the duals in and letting the customers have a whack at it.

 

Jeebus Christmas I couldn't even imagine. You thought a student would try and kill you, let's throw an average Joe with zero training up in there... I know based on my 5 years of tours, I've already had enough Joe Schmoes try to kill me without even having the duals in ! Couldn't pay me enough for that.

Are the night flights in the R44?

 

In my place at least, a night passenger flight requires a twin with an IFR-rated pilot.

 

Does "Novictor" mean "Nobody wins"?

A twin with an ifr pilot, huh? Your place out in the middle of nowhere taking people on night time cloud spotting adventures or something?!

 

"Nobody wins" ha, I see what you did there!

Yup, the great land of Oz, where a night charter, even under VFR, needs a twin with an IFR rated pilot. Our CA$A is a horse's patootie. But Aerial Work can be done at night in a single with a NVFR pilot.

The owner seems like a nice lady. She seems to really be highly respected among the female pilot community.

Yeah, Freddy was the nicest, most courteous, most professional person I had met to date in the helicopter industry.

 

,...then I started working for him!

 

The real question is, how do her former employees feel about her?
