If it is slow might be a good chance to meet some people, and chat with them about survey work. Can you point out some good operators to go see? Thanks in advance
P.S. Have a good Thanksgiving weekend!
Wow, well you'd definitely be competitive once things start moving a bit!
Good operators that I would suggest going to see are Aries Aviation in AB and Sander Geophysics & Fugro Airborne Surveys in Ottawa (definitely call ahead for Fugro, the CP/DFO is a pretty busy guy.)

Others may have some more suggestions, but those are some of the better ones that's for sure.
Good luck!

Thanks for the info, I have applied to them but I think I'll try and meet with them and see if something is coming up soon.

Keep in mind there is a ton of different survey work and not all of it is low level. There is LIDAR and thermal imaging as well plus others. Most of our LIDAR work takes place 1000m agl and above depending on point density and spec for the job. Geomag isn't the only survey work to be had.

True, some are even done at FL350 +
But that is another ball game.
