I have re-posted my questions here as opposed to the "Employment section of the forum. I hope this is now the right place to post these questions?
I am a 42 year old male, living in Ontario Canada, I have a wife and two kids I recently sold my business of ten years and have been thinking about a second career.
I currently have about 200 hours of fixed wing flying and have been thinking about obtaining my commercial helicopter rating.
I am in a position in life where I could do all my training in turbines, what I was really wondering was at age 42/43 and a newly rated pilot, would I be considered "hirable" within the industry? We are willing to relocate, within reason in necessary. How much does age come into account in this industry? realistically how many hours would I require in order to land a job?
Thank in advance for your answers.
