I wanted to get some info on Era helicopters like how much they start you at, what aircraft you will be flying, and type of shcedules? I have an interview with them the end of this month and want to get as much info about them since they really do not have any info like PHI or Air Log does on their site. Thanks for the info in advance!

Here's a novel idea....give them a call ! If you have an interview with them that means they like what they saw on your resume. Call them and ask for any of the pilots not flying at the moment and he'll tell you what you want to know, that's what I did for my last job.

Self discipline is when you do something that you know is right even though you don't want to do it. As a professional and safe pilot you have to maintain control over your desires & emotions. Have INTEGRITY and great WORK ETHIC and you'll succeed in life.

How did it go? I'd be interested to hear how a major helo company conducts interviews for pilots so if you don't mind, would you share your experience with us? Thanks!

Well the interview was good... First I filled out another application and a bunch of forms for backround checks and stuff. Then I talk to their human resoures person Wendy Mann. Pretty much just talked about pay and benifits. Then she sent me over to talk to the asst chief pilot, it felt almost like he was trying to scare me out of wanting to fly in the gulf. After most of that I pretty much said sounds like my type of job. They then sent me for a flight with their check airman in a EC-120. After that I went and talked to the chief pilot Bob Holl and they then said that they were going to review the other applicants and if I got a job they would send a letter out within two weeks of when they made a decision. They were saying some thing about that to start out PIC single pilot ether in the 206 or EC-120 (they are phasing out all the 206 with the 120's.) that you had to have 1250hours or they would wave it down to 1000 hours if you have a CFII and you do pretty good on the interview flight other wise you have to start SIC in a twin or something. All in all that is about it. Allot of the pilots there were saying that its a good sign that I made it as far as I did in the interview. I will let you guys know if I get the job and will continue to let you all know how the training goes and the job as I would have loved to hear from others going in GOM jobs. Hope that helps and if I can answer anymore questions feel free to ask and I will answer with the best of what I know (Which is not too much right now.).

There was no sarcasm in my reply. I believe in calling directly to find out info like benefits and hours, etc. If you had asked about how it is to work for them, then I'm sure somebody would have replied but you asked for specifics on a company and the best to answer those questions is the HR dept of the company. Why, because they might offer you something that the previous or the next hire isn't going to get. This is done by companies in order to get a pilot that they really want. Maybe that's why your question has over 340 views and nobody actually answered you except for me.

Self discipline is when you do something that you know is right even though you don't want to do it. As a professional and safe pilot you have to maintain control over your desires & emotions. Have INTEGRITY and great WORK ETHIC and you'll succeed in life.

Outbreak thanks for the correction. I ment to type Hall, my keyboard skills suck so sometimes I make mistakes and normally don;'t check if it is correct. A downfall I geuss... I should have been more specific as to what I was asking for but I guess I figured that if I were to post on some thing like this if I had expirence with it I would give all the information I knew on the subject so I assumed that other would do that as well but there is my problem there, most of the problems in the world are from assumtions. Again though this was a totally new area for me and did not know what to do other than post and try to get info. My first job I did not have to worry about any of that cause my boss pretty much said as soon as I landed from my CFII check ride that I had a job so there was no interview or anything it was an automatic job. I learn as I go and now I know what to do in the future for information about stuff like this but anyways I guess thats not really important.

Well I guess they are, since they have an employment ad posted here at just helicopters and jsfirm.com. So send a resume, worst that could happen is you get a letter and that your resume will be on file for a year or you get an interview and a job offer. Its up to you to fiquire out the worst that could happen. Just kidding. I have gotten two calls this week bout flying down on the mess. I will be heading out next week, once my car is repaired. By then maybe some sense will return, and they will not want anymore helicopters than what they already have. I for one don't want to spend the whole fall down there.

I guess that since Lyn has banned politics and religion on the original forum, now we're getting the fanatics and all the other trash over here. I hope we can keep this forum working as it has since it started. Lyn, please help us do that, let's snip it in the bud before it gets out of hand. We don't need the useless remarks over here too, just good info on helicopters ...

Congrats on getting hired. Another FYI -- Era is still searching for qualified pilots to fill their ranks.

Congrats on getting hired. Did you know the post you replied to was over 7 years old ? Another FYI -- Era is still searching for qualified pilots to fill their ranks.
