  1. I highly recommend Helinets. Vancouver company, with many years of making long lines.
  2. As an engineer reading this description of a "typical" pilot, I have a lot to say. Some is good natured hacking, but some is truly an observation from my perspective. Many of the pilots I have met over the years may have started off as analytical, but most do not retain that trait. Depending on the size and complexity of the aircraft, some tend to simply snag the aircraft as faulty without any cockpit based troubleshooting. There are also those who excel at this, but that is not the majority. I have seen a lot of pilots start out their flying career as hard working, focused and helpful. Those same people can sometimes end up as non team players and self focused. I should point out here that all of us change as our careers and ourselves age. The same statements can be easily made of some of the engineers I know as well. Lastly, after reading the description, which kind of describes a larger than life alpha male, who is introspective, smart, mechanically superior, and caring, I realized, I must speak up for the common man, who doesn't possess even half of those traits. In closing, you can each decide which is hack, and which isn't. It does take a special personality and skill set to be a good pilot. I certainly don't have what it takes, but I do know it takes all of the team to get it launched in the morning and bring it home at night.
  3. Trying to find out the possibility of getting a work visa for the USA, in aircraft maintenance. Seeking information/advice from those individuals who have experience with this issue. Reading alot of web site information does not lead one to believe that a work visa for the US in aircraft maintenance is obtainable, without it being inter-company transfer. Any info would be appreciated, thank you.
