I see you are not willing to put your name on here the way you are talking about us old guys and Delta helicopters.... I wonder if this is why you have a screen name like yours. Check with lots o

Wow, a lot of pissed off people here!... Yes the industry is in the toilet. Not sure how a jr pilot would get going now let alone get through client hour requirements. But someone will have to figure

The industry goes in cycles as anyone that has been in it any amount of time knows, we are definitely in a low cycle. In 3-4 years all of the boomers will be in their 60’s, it’s pretty obvious to anyone watching there will be an exodus out of the industry. If you are younger and have skills, assuming there is an economy left after Trudeau is finished, there will be work around. If the economy survives the next year or two, they are predicting a huge commodities boom. Someone will have to fly the drills.

That would be the tail end of the boomers.  Most are well into their 60s now and lots still working.  Colleges and flight schools have been talking about this mass exodus for 30 years,  it’s not going to happen the way it was predicted I don’t think.  Since then there’s been a two major economic downturns, one worse than the Great Depression and a global pandemic.  Most will work until they can’t with the way the economy has been the last ten plus years.  As for commodities, there is plenty of infrastructure in place for that demand, flying drills won’t be needed as it was before with more modern and less environmentally invasive exploration techniques.
