  1. Why is it that when you ask a company for a schedule they look at you like you’re asking to sleep with their significant other? If a fixed wing company with hundreds of pilots can do it why can’t operators manage to organize a dozen pilots? Is it that they are still the older generation and they feel everyone should be available at all times at the drop of a hat, or just unable to comprehend the concept that people want to have a work/life balance. Maybe it’s a combination of them mixed with not having the capacity to create a schedule either way I think things need to change or I have a feeling more people will leave and the industry will be in a worse spot than it is now.
  2. Well it’s getting near to the busy season why don’t we all just say no when the phone rings and maybe owners will finally realize they aren’t in charge and it’s hard to take jobs with no pilots and engineers. But I’m sure there’s always gonna be that clown that’s a yes man and ruin it for us all. This industry isn’t gonna change unless we all get together and stand beside one another rather than trying to be better than the guy/gal beside you.
  3. This industry is a joke, I’ve been in it for over 15 years now and unless you are single and ready to be a yes man/woman you are just another bitchy pilot or grumpy engineer. No other industry in the world would get away with how this industry treats its staff. I especially get a kick out of how people who fly in a machine every once in a while as a passenger get to have a say in how good or bad you are as a pilot. That would be like you riding on a train every now and then and be able to complain about the conductor cuz you’ve been riding the train for years. This industry is complete garbage and needs to change. People need to realize that employees have life’s and families and most of us don’t really care about your company and whether you make 4 million or 5 million this year. This is a paycheck for me now and I’m not willing to loose a wife or family just so I can go out and make you richer then get criticized for asking for time off. I think everyone needs to wake up and realize we are professionals and not just “meat servos” as the earlier generations were called. Let’s all start being pilots not drivers and engineers not parts changers.
  4. Bwhahahahahaha keep posting the vids on YouTube they are always good for a laugh. I enjoyed the icing video as well! There was also one about not being able to put avgas in a turbine my buddy told me, when all real pilots know a turbine will burn pretty much anything in a pinch including avgas, it just takes time off the components. I’m pretty sure everybody knows someone or has even done it themselves in a pinch. Keep pumping out them students! Lol
  5. Maybe you should fire them a resume, you seem to always have an opinion on everything and everybody. I’m sure you’ll love the 42/5s in the dead of winter in rainbow lake.
  6. Hahahahaha he totally is shilling his business on both sites. I agree with simpleton, OTR keep your junk in the marketplace where it belongs.
  7. Definitely need to buy one, At least to cover for the the AStar that tried to trim the trees with its blades.
  8. It’s not about setting up shop and driving anyone under, obviously the point was completely lost with you. It’s that mentality right there is why this industry is where it is. I don’t think that being respected and paid accordingly are crazy attributes to ask for. And if you think those are crazy things to ask for I know exactly the person you are and can only imagine how you have shaped this industry with your great ideas.
  9. Ahhhhhhhh I wonder what the low time pilots there are doing? All the contractors have been laid off so I’m sure they will be more eager to start bringing up some young guys. By 4 weeks on and 2 weeks off you must mean 35/7. Hard to keep a schedule when you have 25 machines and 27 pilots. I’m sure by them giving you the opportunity to “go for it” as you put it you mean they ran you right to 42/5. I’m not sure I would call working in the Arctic glamourous as you mentioned, you obviously haven’t been there in either of the two seasons it has, summer or winter. Could there be a reason why some people stay there for a while? I have an idea why, and let’s be honest the pay is still from 84’. Maybe the company needs to stop thinking of itself as a stepping stone for pilots and start investing in this industry, in my opinion they are one of the reasons why the industry is where it is. Always looking for the cheap help and not realizing when they have good people. There is a reason why people leave and yes some search for the perfect job and those people will never find it cuz it don’t exist, but a company that has steady work, pays well and respects their employees and doesn’t think of them as parts in a machine will never have to go looking for people. The key fundamentals are missing that’s why it’s mostly the same companies looking for people and have threads on the forums. I don’t buy the whole “oh it’s cheaper to run an add all year long” or “Maybe that magic person will apply” if your looking for a cheaper way to find people your going to get cheap people applying.
  10. Hahaha yeah or maybe it’s the fact that your all trained by fresh graduates and have no real skill set so it’s like the blind leading the blind, teaching people how to fly. The simple fact that once you get your commercial faa and don’t need endorsements and can fly any machine up to 13,500lbs is absurd no wonder there are more incidents in the US than any other place. Wasn’t it you who said you work for free when you were an instructor or for like $300/month?
  11. Well they do have pilots who work there who post videos on YouTube about UFO encounters
