JayR Posted February 1, 2008 Report Share Posted February 1, 2008 Hello, I'm interested in starting a new trade and a friend of mine (a pilot) said I might do well in the helicopter maintenance field. I'm currently a ticketed automotive refinisher, but I'm unhappy with a lot of things in that trade. I need a new start. I am very meticulous. I take my time and do things right. I'm picky. I have a lot of patients to make sure everything is done the way it is supposed to be done. I am also mechanically inclined and have a good understanding of how things work. With that being said, does it sound like helicopter maintenance might be the right thing for me? My friend recomended turbine engine overhauling, or component overhauling. He thinks I would do well at those. What steps should I take to find employment? Is it easy to find a job without having any schooling? I'd like to try my hand at it before spending a lot of time and money on schooling. Don't get me wrong, if I see there is a definite future in it, I would do any schooling necessary. Anyhow, any info on who to talk to, steps to take, or things to consider would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this. P.S. I'm in the Abbotsford BC area, so any info on local companies would be great. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
