Hello everyone, I am currentley working on finishing up my flight training. I dont think I have enough money to go all the way through CFII. Therefore I dont know if I will be able to instruct at the school I attend. To top it off I am About to deploy to Iraq for 18 months. I was wondering if anyone knows of any jobs in the Southwestern United States for low time pilots with R22 expierence? Any and all help and suggestions would be greatley appreciated. :unsure:

I think some companies have a policy where you have to have X amount of hours within the past 12 months to show how proficient you are. Also, don't you have to have a minimum of 200 hours to instruct in Robbies? Although a simple checkride with the school might be all you need. I guess it just depends.. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

 

Be safe on your deployment and God bless what you people do,

Hi Helomanaz,

 

The 18 mo. deployment is going to hurt you no doubt about it. You have come this far I suggest if at all possible beg or borrow if you have to but get that cfi. It will be easier for you to get a job but beyond that

You will learn more about flying helicopters teaching then any other low timer job out their. If the cfi really isn’t an option I would look at tuna boat pilot job S. America.

 

 

Good Luck

i knoew someone who got thier cfi and double i . he was infantry then switched to ng.. at that point from what i understand the offered him a job instructing for the ang. keep in mind he only had 200 hours r22.

 

 

If he isnt a graduate of IERW and the instructor pilot course for that units airframe he isnt instructing anybody in any military service no matter what civilan ratings he had.
