The annual Career Development Seminar and Networking Event known as HeliSuccess drew more attendees and employers this year than the previous. Lyn Burks, the creator and producer of the event which is in its third year said, â€œWe had over 180 domestic and international seminar attendees, as well as operators from virtually every sector of the industry attend this year. We are pleased to see that our vision for education and networking has been embraced by the helicopter industry.â€
This yearâ€™s event was sponsored by the Rotorcraft Pro Media Network, Bristow Group, and FlightSafety International.
Highlights of the 2.5 day event included a FAAST Helicopter Safety Seminar, which was sponsored by Night Flight Concepts, a catered luncheon, cash scholarship awards, a job fair/networking event, an on-site resume consultant, and lectures from 11 industry professionals covering a variety of topics.
Robert Szabo, a CFII and HeliSuccess 2010 attendee summed up the event by saying, â€œOf the tens of thousands of dollars I have spent towards my career as a helicopter pilot, this was by far the best $150 I have ever spent.â€
Michael Gullotti, event speaker and Chief Pilot of the worlds largest tour operator Papillon Helicopter said of the event, â€œâ€œIn preparation for next season we will need to hire approximately 20 pilots. At HeliSuccess 2010 we met plenty of qualified pilots to add to our pool of potential candidates. Thanks HeliSuccess!â€
