Production Pilot

 

- capable of performing a repetitive activity safely and efficiently.

 

This might be another thread, but the definition I've always wondered about is what is meant when anyone uses the term "professional" with regards to a commerical helicopter pilot.

A good point - because a private pilot can have a professional attitude.

 

What does a professional in any trade do? Probably takes the trouble to find out everything possible about the profession. Plans properly for a margin of safety (or ignorance!)

 

There's lots more I'm sure

I think you meant to say per day.

 

Sort of; What I was meaning was that if you fly a total of 4.0 hours over the day with 4 groups, as long as each group gets at least 20,000 or more vertical feet of skiing in that day for "their" hour of flight time then you are in the good. Obviously over 20,000 ft. per group is better and probably means the guide has his/her shite together that day.

 

But yes, you are right, I didn't mean to imply that you could achieve 20,000 ft. for each group for each 1.0 hrs of flight time (or in other words 80,000 ft. of skiing in 1.0 flight hours).

 

So I think we are talking about the same thing???? I'm getting confused myself.
