    I take it you are graduating this year? If so look into scholarships and bursaries for education. These are hard to track down sometimes but there may be some available. As for student loans it seems to be constantly changing, depending when the next election is . The smile on your face will disappear as soon as you start any dialoge(sp.) with services Canada.

    I understand your motives Cole. Input gained here is invaluable as I myself have stated many times. I was just pokin ya in tha ribs. The indusrty is in an excellent position for entry-level pilots rite now. Who knows what will happen in the next couple years, when will it stagnate and have a downturn? Who knows. But our industry, reliant on other industry markets, can change in a second. Knowing how you feel about the matter, if a person were to wait that extra year where would it be. Strike while the irons hot.

  5. If you are going to work the patch, an idea might be to seek an over-seas /out of country job. A friend of mine seeks these out for the pay ( anywhere from 350$ + a day ). I dont know that much about it, however it may be worth looking into. Oh ya on a side note when they ship him out he usually has a layover in GB or Heathrow, party time he says being Amsterdam is only a short ferry ride away I'm told. Good way to see the world too if you like third world countries. Might be worth looking into to boost the wage up and accelerate your plan. Personally it sounds good to save it up and pay it out no loans. You might also want to see if any grants are available never know whats out there for free grant money. Let us know what you find out and best of luck.

  7. I think thats all thats required however get all you can. Thats what I did when I got mine I just got as much time as I could afford, besides you can get it all back next year anyways on taxes. Jus my 2bits.
  8. Having this endorsement will set you apart but I dont feel it will give you any advantage unless there is a company that uses theses machines. I'd have to agree with Gambler and rob, by focusing on companies that have a tendency to hire low-time pilots and familliarize yourself with these types. You might only have to pay for R-44 time in the end. But realistically a 206 endorsement would be time and money better spent if you decide this is the way to go. And $300 us plus living and travel would probably work out the same as getting an endorsement with exposure in your own country ( if you live in Canada). Good luck.
  9. farewell dear friend


  10. Isnt Craig at Chinook at Abby.?
  11. For some of us this is the "Golden ticket", so I must agree with all the positive comments and look forward to meeting them.
  12. Sorry I gotta hijack this threa for jus one sec then ill quit messin round, BUT RYAN whats that on your shoulder buddy seagulls get ya lol Good on ya Buddy :punk:
  13. Ya he's right about retention early on and yes it will probably take a few extra hours. In my humble opinion it will come back, but it will take a few. Dont sweat it. What I found helped out was to go home after training and focus on what was done right not where you feel you lack. Secondly I would find a quiet spot to collect yourself and actually physically go through the start up take off and landings picturing every one in your head as perfect. Dont be afraid to use a manaul to catch little faux pas. Its more a confidence builder as well as a co-ordination exercise. These little tricks are applied to all sports/actvities and were suggested to me by my instructor during my training when unexpected "holidays" interfere. Just a little note for ya when I started my trainig it was about 3 wks in when a couple Jackasses decided to fly a couple jets into a couple buildings in New York. So you can imagine how I felt when they shut er down and everyone is talkin big changes within the industry sheesh. That was just the first of my unexpected's. So even if you do get all you finances in order anything can happen at any time. Roll with the punches dont let it get ya down theres a lot more stumbling blocks once you are done.
  14. Glad to hear you guys are all right. Nice job keepin it upright. Take care gentlemen.
  15. See your Crosby dealer (century Vallen, Titan, Wesco, Western equip. etc.) You may want a Crosby g-210 which is a clevise or typical shackle, however on the screw pin there is a large nut and hole for a hitch/cotter pin to lock the screw pin in place. Regular shackle is a g-209 which we just lockwired or ziptied thru the hole in the pin. The other option is a load rated lock-a-loy which is a large chain shape link with the threaded space for joining. But a good Crosby dealer should be able to dazzle you with all types of options. Then ask if its available laod-rated import offshore, may save some dough for beers :up: And ya minimal contact with bears is good, stinky [email protected]#&%ds.
