Layoffs

Recommended Posts

Dang, that's a downer.

 

Yet I see Alpine just posted a position on Aero Ads for experienced mountain/longline pilots... with any luck those that got cut from Blackcomb or West Coast won't be out of work for long.

 

*EDIT*: They've posted the ad here, too.

 

S'posed to be a hot one this week across BC - maybe we'll get a fire season after all.

Layoffs are always tough, but doing it in June is especially tough to hear. I thought BC would have had a good winter with the olympics and all. Thought they had deep pockets...guess the problem is they have short fingers <_<

If you don't know what the term "cull" means in this industry or any other for that matter, then I suggest you go back to school. Then again, maybe you are still in school. To make it easy for you , simply follow this link. Put the little arrow thingy (cursor) over the link and gently press the left hand button on your mouse. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culling Please don't be offended if you recognize any personal traits in the article. It happens.

Sounds professional. Is this explained to students before the drop 60K on a license?

 

Just curious.

it is amazing how little about the actual industry is explained to students. I still read/hear that most helicopter pilots are nearing retirement age and there will soon be a huge need for pilots. oh, and that the industry is booming. ;)

What could the flight schools POSSIBLY have to gain by telling their students that?

 

:P
