Re: AME tech exams

Re: The good, the bad, and the ugly of aircraft maintenance

It's really quite simple. Is aviation maintenance the perfect job. Of course not. Did I heliski and get paid yes. Did I change a Collective servo at -25, yes. Did I bitch and complain about it, you bet. Did I love it, not all the time. But I have a great job. As for the other post I was pointing out...

Re: The Bombardier VS Boeing thing

We all know of course, if this was an Alberta company, it would be long, long gone. No federal money for the west, but we must mollycoddle Quebec. No, it wouldn't be. If Alberta had a strong aerospace company it would receive the same treatment. Digging something out of the ground for the sole reas...

Since when does common sense have to be in the CARs? It doesn't say to not lock your nuts in a vise in the CARs, but you probably shouldn't do it.

Re: slap in the face

Then don't do it. Why is that so hard? I know people who have taken PRM jobs just to get into the door. One was just voted top 20 under 40 in Canadian aviation. No longer PRM, but it was the start. So just because it won't work for you don't paint everyone else in your colors.

Re: Fed's predicting AME surplus

FYI, High School enrollments are also down. Also funding from Governments are drying up as well, BC is cutting post secondary funding by $50 million in the next three years. There is a labour shortage coming. Guaranty it.

Re: Fed's predicting AME surplus

There are less students and there are less "skilled" students. I can see that industry is about to find out that unless things change there will be a significant shortage of AME's. irregardless of any articles you may read to the contrary.

The expectancy, in my experience, is typical. People paying for there own type courses, not so much, but it is hardly uncommon. I know several people who have done it.

Getting a rotary endorsement on your own is a waste of time and money. Why would I hire you with an endorsement but no time on the machine? The problem with helicopters is winter is slow. Look to be employed in the spring as things wind up. Also, this has been a lean year for rotary with very little...

There is always more than meets the eye. What is conspicuously absent is any blame on the USFS for the way they issue their contracts. Empty weight of the a/c is a significant deal maker in the awarding of their contracts. Not to condone falsifying documents, but USFS puts a high demand on having th...
