I have my friends in Rotorheads, but I also have the JB family.

So while I hate dual posts, I just wanted the gang here to know that Yesterday I passed my Commercial Rotorcraft Checkride.

I feel so good! :)

Thanks to those here in JB who make life fun !

Congratulations, RW-1. Could you not find an aircraft that they'd bolted the wings on properly? :D

So what type of Helo flying do you want to do, then?



Exec charter?

Thank you my friends. :D

I want to get to EMS or news gathering for myself eventually.
However corporate ops anis not out of the question. nor is flying out to rigs. (Whirlybird, if you get to the North Sea, you are braver than I :) )

Both are far down the line, though not as far it seems now.

Huggy, I like my wings going faster than my fuselage! :D

I'm really aching to get that time in and join the working ranks, now that I'm certified to do so.

A discussion I've started for all:

What next?

Limited funds for next step. (what else is new? copters cost $$$)
Low time, will need 200 anyway to instruct if going for CFI
and I'm 100 away from that.
The idea is what can I do next to get to the timebuilding positions quickly with the most benefit to my flying and me personally?

I'm leaning towards the instrument rating next vice CFI, because I think that that gives me something in the interim, I'd be a low time commercial pilot, but with my instrument rating, makes me more marketable, and easier for an operator to ensure wouldn't it?

Advice is solicited, and welcome.
