Resurgence Of Entry Level Flying Jobs

Recommended Posts

It's a charity not a business chopterlol. There are ways around everything in this world. Thats why I can't see why everyone is getting so butthurt over duty times. We just bend the truth a little and voila! Fully rested without leaving camp.

A charity....get real. When this is offering services that are offered by commercial operators that have invested large amounts of capital to properly and lawfully run a business that creates employment, pays taxes, etc., one would not call this a charity....it is in reality a chisel charter outfit that is trying to work through a loophole.....what a bunch of garbage.

I'm sure Transport Canada will be very interested in how this is playing out...enforcement is one of their areas that is actually working these days.

 

Your statement shakey that, " there are ways around everything in this world" pretty much sums up the mentality.....

"The operating costs are around $55 per hour compared to a standard helicopter at $500-$1600 per hour depending on the model. How do we get paid?...........we don't......the hours of experience are payment enough. Any volunteer work we do is supported by our customers through donations and that money is used to cover operating expenses like fuel and maintenance with the remainder going to charity."

 

Jeez, not only should TC lay the smack down on these guys I think revenue canada might wanna poke around too... I wonder what "Charity" these guys donate to, if at all.

So guys/galls that could shell out $50-60,000 for a pilots licence in the first place are now consider charity cases? Wow.

How many duffel bags of weed can that little swamp buggy sling? Joke of coarse ; )

 

I'm not in a postion to hire people at the moment, but pretty sure I'd laugh the person out the door and tell them to come back when they have 'certified' hours. The person fresh out of a reputable school would be a wiser choice. Desperate people do desperate things especially in desperate times like these. Folks doing their licences now or considering doing their licences really better have done their homework ahead of time. If the old flight school is telling you that there are scores of pilots that will be retiring soon, run away. Guess what, thats the oldest line in the book. I first heard it in the 90's.

Oh good, a business model built around not paying the aircrew. That sure helps us all...

 

Brutal. No pilot, low time or otherwise should be volunteering. If you do, you are screwing us all over.

I understand people are upset and feel this doesn't help our industry. If anything this will allow some entry into the business but I agree its not right. We're upset that some one would work for less, possibly effecting the industry as a whole, however it's happening all around us. For example how about muliti engine aircraft flying around for oil and gas or the mining sector, those large company's have minimum muliti engine hour requirements / time on type spec's , I'm willing to bet those reg's arn't being followed. I don' t see the difference, just happening on different levels in the industry.
