Hard to find a job?

Post by Heli123 » Sun Oct 20, 2019 10:41 am

Hey, guys! I was trying to find this topic in existing list alredy, but all that i found was too briefly.
I'm a girl, 27 years old, and flying helicipters was my dream from childhood. But in the country I came from it was almost unreal to make true. Coming to Canada i started to think about it, like maybe i can finnaly do that?! But the biggest question is and the only one that stoppes me from going and doing it right again is: after 100h graduation from a school, how hard is it to find your first job? Because people say different things that quite hard to put together. And the question is very important, because, as you understand , putting around 100k for a school you would like to continue flying, not just enjoying 4-6 months and then choosing another job.
Share your experience and give me advices how to make it true, please!
Thank you all, guys, have a nice day and clear sky! 😘

Don't expect a job right away. You could be looking at time spent on the ground in the range of years depending on where you go.

Are you a permanent resident or do you have a visa that will let you work here after?

Alot of people get into helicopters with the same expectations as the fixed wing world and soon realize that it's going to be tough working on the ground and making a serious life change.

So long as your ok moving fuel drums in the bush for long hours, sweeping floors and cleaning everything all the time all while learning and staying positive and showing you have the work ethic, then you'll do fine.

Best advise I can give you is go visit helicopter companies and ask them about their hiring criteria, you might be shocked. By helicopter companies, I mean ones that operate in the field and not around cities and large towns.

Good Luck
