so, I'm going to stay on topic... it's quite easy to see you guys have no idea about the tour industry. When do tours slow? summer, fall, spring or winter? right now the tour pilots are swamped with hours, and are flying like mad.  HAA knows this, these positions are opening up knowing that the contracts that the tour companies have in place (mostly) end in fall.  mass exodus of the canyon will be here soon.  beyond that, tours have been slowing because of the visa tighening by the government.  they lumped vacation visas in with all the others. so no, it takes about a year and half to get 1,000 turbine now. Usually that means once every other year there will be a much larger migration.  that is this year.  I know plenty chomping at the bits to leave.  Tours do NOT pay more then EMS (other then maverick). 5 and 2 flying 55-70 hours a month is the staple in the canyon. Not to mention the season is ending up in alaska. right now resumes are probably on the loose ready to hit the HAA desks. so 7 and 7 probably looks wonderful, 5 days off is industry standard for tours, nothing different there... and suprisingly a pay raise.  it's another step in a long line of jobs... I agree most are used to flying in good weather, and will have to rely in wits and good adm.  but to some HAA is a beast ready to tear the world down, others it's a bright spot on the way home. 

I'm not new here, been flying since 03' and been here on the forums for a long time lurking, and I haven't been on in a long time. it saddens me to see what has happened to this place.  it's all keyboard cowboys complaining about HAA, or this or that.  nothing useful to see here.  I'm actually regretting even puting in the few mintues of effort to have to say this... but here we are
