A-Star Leader Posted November 20, 2006 Report Share Posted November 20, 2006 About 4 years ago, I got whats called "the helicopterobilis addictionniteus". I was working seismic with Eagle Geophysical Can. I went out west to think about my carreer orientation. From the first moment I saw a helicopter land in front of me I couldn't think of anything esle. I've talked with pilots out there to know what paths where available to achieve my goal. At the time taking another school loan (arnd. 70K) was unthinkable, considering that I was doing that job to pay for courses from the past. So I've decided to do a degree in geography to be able to apply as Helicopter Pilot in the Airforce. So know that I went trough all the process, I'm going to Toronto to pass the simulator test. The only problem there is is that I've talked with a Griffon pilot and he told me that for this year there was only 12 places left until march 31th. I also know an Engineer that passed the simulator correctly and didn't made it because they said they had only few places left. So, I'm gonna past the test still, but considering that I only got a degree in geography and the engineer didn't make it, I have no choice but to look for a Plan B in case of failure. I will go back to Western Can. (paradise) and work surveying or seismic for a year and then pay for my pilot courses. I've talked with different Heli school but I know that all these schools are business, and they will do wathever they can to attract new students. I dont mind paying 80ks. I was concidering: -CHC in Quebec (home town) -CHC in Pentincton -Chinook Abotsford Which one is the best?? I dont know... Hope you will help me on this one. I know its not a really important post but I really need your help. Thanks a lot. I hope to be in the same seat as you guys... P-O Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
