  1. Pilots leaving the industry

    Absolutely we should be making 6 figures, but at what cost. People want to sit in their office or not come in at all when there are things needs to be done... machines to clean. Paperwork to be done, I think a lot of people has lost sight of a bigger picture where we making it very hard for operators to be able to stay open. I know of so many guys that just want to show up for go time make x a day and x hourly and when there is no flying they go and do other stuff... if you have a income of 100-120 should not an operator expect to get a hand with other things at the office/hangar?
  2. Pilots leaving the industry

    If you’re in it for the money girls and glory, you are in the wrong industry. We can make a healthy living and we get to operate the coolest machines ever engineered and we get to see some spectacular views. That is the trade off, if people are leaving cause they are making more money doing whatever, let them leave. Let’s focus on getting 100 hour wonders (that would bend over backwards to get a chance to do a .5 a week) up to snuff and let’s get rid of the people who only complains about everyone, everything and every other company. What do you to change the industry? Are you willing to average out your pay throughout the year to ensure the company you are working for can sustain? Are you willing to cut your salary in half to make sure you have a job to go to in the spring? A while back I asked what a salary would be for a ops manager and also for a chief pilot, the few answers i got was proving to me that people over value them self so much! and I think that is true for pilots engineers ops staff and all really in all lines of work... *awaiting bashing* BP

  12. Where Does A Lowtime Start?

    Don't go in to it with negative opinions. You just never know, right person, right time, making a good connection with the right person... anything is possible. I just walked into doors few years back, got a chance to help out, cleaned everything, cars floors, helicopters, offices, ops gear you name it. got Ppc'd and now full time. No one should listen to the people saying that there is none, you never know. If you are willing to work your *** off and don't expect anything you can only get happily surprised...

  14. 407 Power Plus Stc....What Is It?

    isnt this just a way for the operator to use the derated engine to its full capacity? By applying it at altitude? What is the difference with the c47b and the c47/8 engine? a weak attempt to try to stay close to eagles engine mod?
