  • Rarely Shit.
  • Oooooh I have many questions, I'm starting an AME-M program in January. Where did you go to school and what was your program like? When did you pick your specialization and how does it affect work and training. I am really keen on M1 since I want to work with rotor aircraft most. What aircraft have you gotten to work on, and how did it compare to aircraft you trained on. What work prospects did you have after completing the program. Is there anything you feel you weren't prepared for? Thanks, and all the best.
  • Where did you go to school and what was your program like? Canadore College in North Bay ON. A Great program with an extremely experienced and highly respected helicopter instructor. Ultimately the school you go to doesn't really matter at all, as long as its TC approved. I've been involved in hiring and no one really cares where you came from. When did you pick your specialization and how does it affect work and training. I am really keen on M1 since I want to work with rotor aircraft most. I knew I wanted to work with helicopters from day one. However the M1/M2 designations don't really apply to commercial turbine helicopters. For example the there a a lot of M1 guys out there who have 212 type courses and ACA. M1 is ultimately better IMO because it gives you the ability to sign out small private aircraft such as R22/44s on the side for extra $$$. What aircraft have you gotten to work on, and how did it compare to aircraft you trained on. Bell 206 AS350 EC130 EC135 Hu500 Bell 212 Bell 205 Bell 407 EC120. The training aircraft tend to be quite old and very out of date but the concepts are all the same, circles turning circles. What work prospects did you have after completing the program. I came out of school in the hay day so to speak. Our company hired 15-20 apprentices each spring. I gained a lot of experience really quickly and ended up having a great group of AMEs to learn from. These days the industry is in a slump but you have two ish years before you are ready to look for a job and anything could happen. Is there anything you feel you weren't prepared for? Most things. School is really only a basic starting point. You will realize very quickly that you don't know shit, so don't pretend you do. The biggest factor to success early on in your career is attitude. Once you get a job no one cares that you were top of your class or that your dad owns the company. All that matters is that you can turn a wrench and follow the directions in the MM and your supervising AME. May I remind you that no matter how much you think you know once you've completed school YOU DONT KNOW SHIT. Cheers and good luck.

  • Yes, B.C. going to BCIT if that makes a difference.
