Changing from helicopters to fixed wing

#1 Post by JLMG » Wed Nov 29, 2017 2:34 pm

Hello Guys

What is the market like for a 45 y.o. helicopter pilot about 4500TT, 4000 pic turbine, IFR, ATPL. To convert ro fix wing and find a job?
What would be the path to convert my license to fix wing?

Thanks

JM

Hi, do you mind if I ask why? I'm in the opposite boat, CPL fixed wing looking at getting into helicopters. I got my heli PPL a couple years ago and really enjoyed it. I haven't sincerely looked for a heli job yet, but is the job market that bad in Canada?

I would guess you'd have no problem getting a fixed wing job with your experience.
