Re: Building and selling of kit aircraft

You are sort of correct goingnowherefast. The completed aircraft is about the value of the parts so there is no profit margin in building the aircraft to sell it on the market. There are however many homebuilders who want a Lancair, RV10, Glastar, or Rocket built to their specifications who will pa...

Re: Advice for a high school student?

I would also suggest northern lights or okanogan college (as they are partners with northern lights) The class sizes are small, the instructors give a shit and there is a HUGE portion of the BC/AB helicopter industry who will only hire from NLC. As far as wages, it depends. Dollar for dollar, until ...

Well, legal money loosing sched service. Maybe. As long as you do the flight regardless of whether or not anyone shows up.
You would have to do the flight whether or not anyone shows up, that's what makes the passengers in the future incidental.

Re: float pay

Given the insurance hike in the float world I would anticipate wages stagnating for a year or so on the bushier aircraft types.

Just replace what was there. If you are selling the plane. Nothing is a worse investment than avionics, you pay 100 percent to only get back 30.

If the employer tells the holder to move stuff between one camp and another by air it's not incidental to the holder's duties; it has just become part of the holder's duties.
