AME curious about a pooled or contract position

#1 Post by heliguy494 » Tue Jul 30, 2013 6:33 am

Hey guys, I've been working permanently for the last 5 years working on 206L, Astars, and 407's, licensed for 3 and endorsed on 206 and Astar, doing maybe couple 4 week tours each summer and then refurbishing machines in the winter. Thinking if may be time for a change, maybe to a pooled position if I could find it.

Wondering if anyone out there could enlighten me on what the life is like to do some sort of a 3 on, 3 off or whatever schedule. No kids yet so travelling don't bother me that much. Living on the east coast right now and would love to try it out somewhere out west. Do companies generally stick to the schedule when it comes to getting you in and out? What are the winter's like it your pooled? I know this stuff changes from company to company but I'm open to anyone and everyone. If you reply, thanks a lot.
