“more than half the pilots we hired last year, we (first) met and interacted with at HeliSuccess.” While I am contemplating what a profound statement that is, he goes on to tell me his own story. “A few years ago, I was here at HeliSuccess, look- ing for a pilot job. I did exactly what Randy Rowles presented, and I was hired by Papillon.” Summing up, Mark says it is, “absolutely essential for new pilots to attend this event.” Monday ended with a job fair, with


many employers setting up booths and interviewing for open positions. The room was filled with hopeful pilots, resumes in hand. Speaking of which, Chris Fischer was there to help the appli- cants review their resume one on one. After talking to several operators there, I

counted almost 60 pilot positions that were looking to get filled from that room. Lyn’s goal is for the event to get a little


better every year, and to reach out to those youth just coming up in our industry. Lyn was excited to tell me about HeliSuccess Lite happening this year at Heli-Expo in Dallas. The “lite” version will be a one-day seminar focused on the development of each individual’s personal growth, his or her attitude, resume writing skills, profes- sionalism and networking skills. 2011 was the fourth annual event,


but it was my first. I wouldn’t dare to miss another one. When Lyn went to the podium for the last time with his closing comments, all 240 pilots in the room stood and gave a standing ovation. Well deserved. ◆
