Skilled Trades/Apprenticeships

Bailey Helicopters hires low time pilots (100 hours) as ground crew. We have found this to be an excellent training program for new pilots to learn all facets of the helicopter industry from the ground up. Our ground crew pilots can work their way into a flying position by showing initiative, strong work ethic and having a fantastic attitude.
