Re: Regarding AME Shortage

But there more likely to tackle a big job then say ONT / BC Ames if they haven’t done it before. What a load of crap. I went to school with these type...

Re: North Star Air - Ground to Flight Line

You also have to look at the fact that the ATR is also an option. It's not all Basler and Pilatus there.

OP can PM me if he wants more info on that side of things.

Re: Smoking in aircraft

There was a certain Global Express I worked on that had a very distinctive smell of tipped cigars onboard (Like Colts or Swisher Sweets).

So yeah, if you can afford to own an expensive toy like that, you can smoke on it.

Re: Apprentice ame logbook

Can confirm this. I contracted at Bombardier and the time nor the work counts for your AME logbook because of exactly what DH82EH said. Unless you get into the Pre-flight Bay... those aircraft have registrations and CofA so if you are doing RNC rectification on Preflight Aircraft you can get that co...

North Star Air.

Worth a shot. They have PC-12 and Baslers running out of Pickle and Red Lake. Elsewhere too.

This is what I was thinking. Lester, Benny Powell or Romaine Butler all have an absolute gob of time on the Twotter.

Re: Who's pooping on people?

While conducting a post flight walkaround on a Global Express I noticed one panel had what looked like mud streaking around it. Didn't touch it obviously but as I don't have the GLEX type course, I conferred with the lead AME... yup... it was poop as I suspected. Glad I wasn't assigned that snag. haha

Re: King Air Pilots Should Look at Their Fuel Caps Before Takeoff

I had my VHF on and heard this incident go down live. They waited awhile to declare an emergency which wasn't until they were a few minutes away from touchdown. Whomever was working the radio had mentioned a fuel leak, then later when it became a fuel imbalance they called in the emergency. I don't ...

Re: Stickies aren’t going to get you employees.

Maybe someone who is an AME could let us know what their average salary might be in the initial stages after getting their licenses On the helicopter side, an apprentice right out of school will make around $17/hour. Moving up to about $24/hour in 2 years when licensed. I'm a C-hair from getting my...

Citizen Ecodrive Nighthawk. It's got an E6B bezel so it's somewhat pilot-y.
