Just wondering if there is anyone else on here that has converted from a fixed wing flying career to flying whirly birds for a livin' or the other way around.. anyone care to share your reason why you made the switch and how you like it?

I started in the Helicopter world as an apprentice AME.......I wanted to fly the darn things but the cost of getting a license was (and still is) too much for me to handle. I had my private fixed wing license at the time and eventually upgraded to a commercial. Now im flying and wrenching on fixed wing machines for a living. Ive already made the switch once...and considering doing it again (except flying helicopters this time).

would love to hear your stories,

This should get you started, if you've got any questions after looking through these links, I'm sure we'll do our best to answer them.

I did the switch from FW to RW, best decision I even made in terms of my career.

Giving that you have your commercial plane licence the required hours to obtain your commercial rotory are lowered from 100 to 60. This will help greatly in the finiancial department. Regards.
