There are training incentives for AME's as well. Red Seal is provincial, no federal recognized certification. So it doesn't fit in with an AME license, in fact it would have no ICAO relevance. Also, Red Seal is driven totally by industry. Find it ironic that HAC is slammed for being an owners club, yet Red Seal would be a benefit? Red Seal has no wage scale. You get paid what industry will pay you. Aviation folks take the pay because we don't refuse it. There is a massive shortage of licensed, endorsed, experienced AME's.
"It’s sad to see the commercial helicopter industry hasn’t changed much and won’t change, until we as professionals refuse to work under these same conditions that have been around since the 80’s. Companies continue to under bid each other and try to make it throughout the year, partially on the backs of its professional pilots and engineers."
That pretty much nails it and being a Red Seal ain't gonna change it.
