Trust me. Don't show up for your helicopter check ride with a burrito lunch. It is a good story, actually.........

If you go to Sierra Vista you will bounce the 206 for currency. In San Angelo you’ll fly the PC-12 maybe a third of the time.

Thank you.

When you're not flying what are the typical duties?

Is Puerto Rico the closest base to Miami? What is a typical day like? And finally is 100k a realistic 1st year salary?

thanks

Homestead is closest to Miami, then Jacksonville. Puerto Rico may be the closest that is currently hiring.

$93156 is what the first year pay is plus nights, holidays, and Sunday pay may get close to 100K

After Hurricane Andrew in 1992, Homestead became a Reserve Air Base. Last time I heard it was active was for airlift after a disaster in Haiti.

Not sure what your point is?
Miami Air and Marine Branch is located at Homestead.
