  1. haha as usual Pilot5 i think you are trying to send us back to the old hiring canadians fight..... was just trying to get some feedback from some people who are actually happy with where they have been working lately and get one of these post in this forum from going in the tank and at this time I am glad I stuck around my current company things are better are looking up but hard times might be in the future of the heli game again if the world can't get there financials in order and get out of all this recession talk
  2. Well seeing we are getting to that time of year when the ads for work start to flow I am looking for some of the veterans in the Industry (guys in the industry with 20+ years) to stand up and give me some feedback on If they have ever found the grass to be greener with another company. In the last 4-5 years I have seen many experienced guys in my company slowly get pulled away for promises of better tours, medium time or just more money or just for the fact that they are sick of the "SAME OLD #### SHOW" In most cases the guys I have talked to seem to come to the same conclusion that the new job isn't quite what they were promised and the new company might not have the same problem as the old company but a whole new set of issues. And in most cases the guys spend the next 5 years jumping between companies looking for that perfect job.....which I am coming to the conclusion might or might not exist At what point in your career do you finally decide that you are actually happy where you are at,and the problems and issues you know are better than the new unknown issues you are walking into at a new company To be honest I was scouring all the job ads last year and sending out resumes. And in most cases was offered jobs within a few days of sending out resumes. Yada Yada in the long run management put in the time to find out what i was missing at my current company and decided to make me a good offer which I was happy with and decided to give them another summer of blood and sweat hahaha. Now at the end of the year I am more than happy with my year and looks like to be a busy winter..... and some very good change in the company to come. But as always I still find myself always drawn to check aero ads or vertical for that next golden job......... Is there any real way to be completely happy with your flying job?

  12. I would strongly advise the laser eye surgery. I got my eyes zapped before I got my lisence. The procedure now is so quick and easy pretty much walkin in get zapped and go home. There are follow up eye appointments and a litte bit of a waiting period before you can get your medical but the best money I have spent. I went from poor vision to better than 20/20 vision . as far as any side effects I havent noticed any.

  15. hey man dont let the other guys change ya mind about goin to flight school, when I was tryin to make the decision to get into the industry i herd the same stuff. One thing to be sure of is your commitment to what you wanna do, the road ahead of ya isnt gonna be easy. There will be alot of perverbial ***** work and sweepin floors ahead of ya. One piece of advise i can give ya is to go to a flight school who is part of a company and that actually hires a few students from the class every year. I had just completed my trainin this spring and was lucky enough to get hired right out of school. I believe that they company hired a record amount of 6 guys from the school. All are doin well and are PPC up already and gettin in some flyin. Try to find a school like Great slave heli, Custom or any company that actually hires students. If ya want more help drop me a line
