Going for a ride in GOM?

I start training in a week! My dream is to fly offshore. Do any companies give flights to upcoming pilots to see if this is a career they want to pursue? Even if you have to pay? I would love to spend a whole day just observing a typical offshore day. Thanks!

do like i did, get a part time job at an offshore company, ask lots of questions, learn as much as possible, show that you are truely interested in the operation and a seat will come up sooner or later.

Here's a couple of video experiences. Check out the "Offshore Flying Experience" (make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the page). They are from the Local 107 Pilot's Union at Air Log. No Union promotion, just a slice of life flying in the GOM.

Enjoy.
