Ryan Posted July 5, 2007 Report Share Posted July 5, 2007 So I guess my true question is .... WHY should someone take a career as a helicopter pilot over a career as say a miner ?? Why take a job where you have to work a month straight of 16 hour shifts with maybe 1 day off , over a job where you work 10hrs shifts .. 4 on ,3 off . Why take a job where you just paid $65 000 and are mopping floors , over a job that you dished out $2500 and are working with machines that you went to school for? To answer these questions from your first post: Why choose helicopters over the mines? Why works long stints when you could work shorter days for more pay? Why pay $50K+ for a licence that'll initially let you just work ground crew duties? The answer is because you want to. Doctors start off as interns, lawyers do articling, engineers first are apprentices. You will first work the fuel hose, the weedeater and paintbrush. You'll bleed a little and cuss a lot. And oddly enough... you'll probably find you like doing it. It really not all that bad most of the time. Good luck. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
