Best Posting for a new Avn Tech?
« on: June 01, 2016, 16:02:43 »
I'm Ql3 qualified but not sure where to choose for postings. I want to go to  Trenton hoping that being the deployment hub it would offer lots of opportunities for experience and courses. But I also want to work on cormorants...and go east to greenwood or shearwater. Is Gander NFL even an option? Cause I'd go there in a heartbeat.

Hi :)

Not an AVN Tech. Not even in the Air Force. However, I think I can offer some advice.

Talk to your instructors and course staff. See where they have been and what they have done. Ask for their advice. They may have gone to Shearwater and hated life because of XYZ. Or they may know that Trenton doesn't get all the goes people say they do. Or whatever other insider knowledge they have

Cold calling the internet for one of the biggest decisions of your career thus far won't yield the results you're looking for. You have experienced people in trade that you see on a daily basis. I'm sure they won't beast you for asking a sincere question.

Very true ....I plan on talking to everyone I can....but the more opinions/inside scoops the better..but in the end I have no say where I go anyways.

Ask for whatever you want - don't ask, don't get. That being said, I was under the impression that CH149 maintenance was performed by a civilian contractor. I may be wrong, however, as I have never been part of that community.

Saw this from 2007,

Chances of going to Gander in AVN are 0. They only have Comorant helicopters and no AVN's work on them, only civilian maintenance, company called IMP.
