Lower time pilot looking to build hours

Recommended Posts

My name is Cody,

I am a lower time pilot getting my foot in the door looking for any extra work such as ferry/maintenance flights, short term/long term jobs. Willing to travel for the position.

For the past 2 fire seasons I have been Flying as a co-pilot to fly the S-61 and S-64 Skycrane for wildland firefighting missions. During this time, I proved myself to be very level-headed and a valuable asset when flying in hazardous environments and have excellent customer service and interpersonal skills.

My previous work experience includes being a Senior Wildland Firefighter on both Hotshot and Helitack crews. During my off season from firefighting, I am proud to have completed my Commercial License and Instrument Rating at Jerry Trimble Helicopters in McMinnville, Oregon. 

After this next fire season I should have 500 hours and will meet Part 135 requirements. I understand my hours are low and probably don't meet most insurance requirements but if there are opportunities please let me know.

I am willing to come out to you and do a test flight with you to see if I would be a good fit for your company and would be able to start as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and consideration, and hope to hear from you soon.
