- The Alaskan Job
- funny thing.. I live in AK. But this pic was taken in Texas.
- Powerline work. Edit. This was today http://youtu.be/evhVG--Imsw
- dat OGE
- Best machine for the job. Very stable!
- I want to fly for this company. What do you need for a job there?
- 500 time. Long line time. 1,500 hours min
- How about 200 hours in piston ships AND a commercial pilot's license. And if you call now, I'll include a free blender.
- Sold, must be a 4 quart blender though
- Sick hangar dude! I wish I could be there
- I'm so used to being a field mechanic that a hangar is a luxury. Did a 100 hour tonight in pitch black with flashlights.
- Im going to school to get my A&P, how did you get where you are in your career? I understand that an A&P is more a license to learn and what you make of it it largely up to you, but what sort of career decisions did you make to get you where you are today? Because I have a raging hardon for anything with rotor blades and I would facking love to have your job.
- Ok, so I REALLY lucked out. I actually didn't go to A&P school. I got an apprenticeship back on '03 with a helicopter company in Vegas. My brother in law was the D.O.M. So, as they say, it's all about who ya know. I worked for that company until 2007. It was almost all Robinson experience. I moved to Alaska in 2007. I got lucky again when a company gave me a chance to move up to turbine helicopters. And the rest is history. So to answer your question, a little bit of luck, some persistence, and a whole lot of hard work and even more sacrifice. I'm a field mechanic. I travel for 100% of my job. It's tough being away from my wife and kids. I've changed engines in -40F on the ramp, I've done the same in 110+F. It's not easy, but it's exciting. With that said, I'm debating on getting out of the industry. I won't be able to make anywhere close to the amount of money I'm making if I take a local hangar job. And traveling for work is getting old. I'm missing my kids growing up. Sadly, I'm debating quitting a job I love. But, I love my family more.
- What's that black thing in the corner with tricycle gear?
- i think the black thing is just part of the tail rotor of a helicopter in the foreground, then the landing gear all the way in the back of the hangar
- ahaha, of course. I was looking right past the tail rotor trying to figure out the landing gear. derp. Read more comments
