    • Helicloud does it all.....https://www.helicloud.ca/
    • It’s only two jobs, one pay if you let it be. As a pilot/eng I’ve never been put in that situation, and don’t plan to. For what it’s worth, I also have never been laid off in this industry. Qualified engineers are seemingly hard to come by these days 
    • Thanks for the feedback all.  
    • Well...hope it works out for you...I ended up being pretty well respected by both sides...liked...that remains to be seen. I still remember being told by someone when I was pulling apart an engine...this with thousands of hrs of fire work, slinging and spraying...hey you really do know what you are doing...not sure if it was a joke...but...good luck!     Doug Potts
    • Get the Regs exam done and then get a job with a reputable company that runs Astars in the bush and get some quality field maintenance and some endorsements to add to your heavy maintenance experience. That way you'll be in the bush learning a lot about bush flying (by observing) and honing your skills as an AME. If you're trusted and regarded as as AME, I promise you that they'll give you a chance to fly. When that time does come though, it'll be up to you to know your checklists and procedures and you may only get one opportunity to impress.  Basically, get good at one before you jump across to the other or you'll forever be thought of as a hack at both.
