New Company

Recommended Posts

Read an impressive article in a Canadian magazine regarding a new helicopter operator in Fort St John.


They talk about how vibrant the industry is there, and even though there are six companies in business, the new company says they have customers coming to their door, partly because they are locally owned, have new machines, and high time pilots.


Is it really " booming" in Fort St John, making it that simple to be successful in a helicopter business with so much other competition? Gutsy move nonetheless!

Vortex- I have a great business idea. I could hire the B2 for 1090/hr, then use it for my customers for say 1600/hr. It would be "win-win" for everyone!!!! I think everyone needs to consider the source of the "interview" when deciding what is "truth" and what is #$%&*^%$
