R44 News/traffic Pilot

Recommended Posts

Just curious who's running the R44 Newscopter out of Toronto/Buttonville these days?

 

Has anybody flown for them that would be willing to share some experiences? Do they hire lowtimers? Mostly just curious. Might be interested in perusing some heli flying again mostly for fun.

 

Cheers,

 

 

Rob

LR was running it as of last year. From what I've heard, they hire guys from within LR's flight school. They are hired on for a year flying traffic and then cut loose to make way for new graduates.

I flew traffic in Vancouver as my first job for a year and a half with the company mentioned above. I did not get my commercial license through them, just happened to make a stop by there during my road trip. As far as I know they still run the helicopters in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Toronto. You do have to have a night rating to fly the traffic however. If you have any other questions, feel free to DM me
