I was out taking pictures of boats on Long Island and a call came in from the Caymen Islands. A Caymen fellow was issued an M1 visa for a school in central Florida and he has told the S300 that he was going to fly was grounded and he wanted to check out my school. We price our R44 at below the normal rate of an S300 and he figured we'd have a sit down in my office. The instructor that picked him up texted me that he was a "big" guy. So I put him on the scale and start looking up max seat weights and the conversation drifted to where he thought he was going to get a first job. Any thoughts on where he would get a first job flying a helicopter at 350 pounds?

If he were already employed flying something really big, and he gained that weight, he MIGHT be able to keep his job,...MIGHT? However, a first job flying with that weight?,...try Never Never Land!
