OAS Card Requirements

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at job offers for fire fighting and Logging. They all seem to mention OAS carding. Could someone explain what these requirements are? I've googled the web without much success. I'm coming out of military and I am seriously considering flying commercially for a living. The fire fighting and long lining seem challenging and high adventure. Thanks in advance.

OAS is in the Depart of Interior, Forest Service.

 

Office of Aircraft Services, just poke around in there and you should find what you are looking for.

 

Try this:

If your goal is to fly on fires you will first need to learn how to deploy a fuel containment berm, then figure out your P25 digital radio while trying to see it around your moving map GPS unit which maybe near the other GPS you already have or below the other foxtrot radio you were supposed to have first of all and do all this with your head in the bubble. Don't let the fact that since you may be in a restricted category A/C the extra moving map GPS is for your imaginary buddy in the right seat.

Or you can turn off the FM's and Victors and plug in your IPOD.

If any of you guys are ever flying in So Cal and need some extra weight in the seat next to you, just make the call !
