Don't sell yorself short either. There are some "hour building" deals out there that have guys flying for free. I know getting those hours is so important, but I can't stand to see people being used like that. The oil patch is hot these days. Pilot operators make good cash and get some decent flying in too. Look to Airborne Energy Solutions out of Whitecourt. Aerial Recon out of Calgary. Ridge Rotors out in Tumbler. Shunda in Rocky Mountain House. Anybody the operates R22 or 44's around Fort Mac. PM sent back.
