Not that I need a job, have one. Remember a while back how that discussion came out about how companies manipulate the requirements so work permits can be issued. I can't say for sure dat dis is da case but she look suspicious. :blink:

Who cares??? If I owned 5 beautiful 407's I'd be pretty careful who I hired to fly them. I believe Canadore handed out diplomas to graduates, so there are lots of bodies out there to fill those seats. Maybe you haven't turned your TV on for a while but there is a major slow down going on right now and there is a bunch of resumes flying around now. Operators can be picky now. Sorry to sound rude but I think its reality now.


One more thing, is there any of those MP3 things that can brief Newfie Jughounds or Hutterite drillers?

"Slow down"???

Look at the back of this issue of vertical mag and aero ads. At least half a dozen or more companies looking for crew. Lots of work out there! For those that want the work.
