AME Apprentice Opportunities in Ontario or the GTA

#1 Post by AMETonyD » Tue Dec 10, 2013 2:44 am

I've done majority of my studies and living here in Alberta the past five years.
It's time that I move on, I'm thinking Ontario, specifically the (GTA) Greater Toronto Area.

Have any of you had any experience working out east, as apprentices or AMEs ?
What is the market like ? Can you make a living ? (not in comparison to AB, of course).

Are there many AMOs, MROs, FBOs, etc. in Helicopter industry?

I'm prepared to be unemployed there at least 6 months, before I land something legitimate.
Just I am unfamiliar with this market.

Any information, advice, experience, etc. you could share, would be greatly appreciated.

Helicopters mostly operate where no other vehicle can access, therefore the GTA is pretty tight for good jobs. You want money and experience, go as far north as possible.

I haven't seen any advertising for hiring far north, and of the companies that I have, they don't look very reputable.
I've probably signed up to over 100 RSS feeds notifying me of anything related to keyword: aviation, ame, apprentice, etc. in North America; so I don't see much advertised, honestly.

Ok so I suppose amalgamating this topic with a non-helicopter topic, what aviation opportunity is there for an apprentice in fixed aviation, in the GTA area ?

Im just curious, now that people are telling me all the opportunities in aviation are in Alberta, where do the student and instructors of AME students in Ontario, go ?

Like they all just dont relocate here, do they ?

why don't the companies that leave ads for openings for ame apprentices in Ontario, take apprentices who are applying from Alberta, seriously ?
