So im all finished up, CPL is complete, now the fun bit. I left my resume with my school in hopes i can get on flying tours or a traffic machine somewhere in Canada, but im not leaving all my eggs in that basket. I received a copy of Vertical Magazines "Canadian Helicopter Operators Directory" and ive started looking through it.

This is where im not sure if im on the right track. I have both a 44 and 206 endorsement, but im narrowing down the operators based on if they fly 44's. It's been drilled into my head that there will not be a job for a new low time pilot on a turbine, not to say that isn't true but it makes sense. Also, the 5 operators i have found that give me the best opportunity do not have an hour requirement on their websites which helps with my low time.

For all of you who have been in my position and those who are employed, what's the best way to determine the best chance of finding an employer?

Thanks,

Logan

Captain L,

Firstly well done sir, damn you did it quick too!

If you have 5 people to send CV's too, send them all. At the moment if you can get a good employer and opportunity to gain experience you just have to take it.

Email everyone your CV, website are not always updated every day, so perhaps those who say that they dont need people perhaps do. They will keep your CV on record for future employment opportunities aswell.

Best of luck!

HH

thanks HH, yeah it felt like it flew by! I miss it already! im taking my dad for a ride on wed so hopefully i can post some picks. As for the CV's, ill call the employers, let them know ill be emailing my resumes and perhaps take a drive to personally deliver my CV to the 1 or 2 operators just north of me.



Thanks

Logan

so everything is out. CV, phone calls, the works. A couple places i have called are not looking for pilots nor people for ground work. (I say ground work because its a foot in the door, lots of places wont let a pilot fly until they have worked for them on the ground for a certain period of time). It's looking grim, but im thinking a possible search in Australia and NZ could be worth while, possibly anyways. I have sent my CV to a chap in Australia and im waiting to hear back from him.

Another option I have is to find a job landscaping or detailing cars for the time being, something that will let me pay for flights 2 times a month or so (keep me current) while i keep on sending out CV's and making phone calls.

Any info anyone has on the current situation in Australia and NZ is greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Logan
