Re: What Do You Do for Work/Job?

Professional pilot for 37 years. 23 of it spent with a major Canadian airline. Lost my medical three years ago and "put out to pasture". I miss it very much but have since got over the loss partially thanks to this very wonderful hobby and the great people involved with it.

Been there too, and even told a service manager he could fire me over not wanting to try to fix a design problem he said didn't exist because it wasn't field servicable. It took a while but I won that one when GM finally acknowledged it. Flat rate paid just under 3 hours (once only) for the repair you couldn't possibly do thanks to a serious flaw in materials choice.

I had 34 years in a local Meat processing plant. Shut down by Maple Leaf Foods. Just before that happened I started with a private Security company. I am a Lincensed Private Guard in the province of NS .
Also went back to school and became a Volunteer Fire Fighter. Our department has 70 plus members. We have answered as many as 30 calls in a 24 hour period, December 2010 in major wind and rain storm.

Be safe ,Enjoy time with your family, friends and time in RC , what ever it may be.

Alberta Re: What Do You Do for Work/Job?

Power Engineer for 28 years in Alberta... 15 years initially in the oil patch NE Alberta, followed by 12 years in the Petro Chemical industry in Red Deer... now back in the oil patch at Fort Mac and not regretting the move....

Have a private pilots license, still looking for a plane.... hopefully next fall. Attempted building a RV-8, had the wing, empenage completed and the fuse kit ready to start when I ran out of steam and sold it. So now with the strong Canadian buck I'm looking at buying something in the US.... maybe even a RV-8.
RV-8'ting and loving it!!

Re: What Do You Do for Work/Job?

Jack of all trades master of None.
Rough Carpenter, Finish carpenter, machinist, welder,heavy equipement operator, concrete finisher, mechanic, landscaper, sandblasting artwork on glass, truck driver. Self taught in everything but Concrete finisher and Trucking but I have a knack for it so I caught on fast. 7 yrs at concrete construction and the last 12 hauling fertilizer to the farmers who help make the bread and beer. 6 to 8 weeks of go like hell in the spring and 6 weeks again in the fall. Then there is always the Honey Do List in between. ( I must hide that note pad someday)

I have always thought that if a person puts his mind to it, you can do anything. I always try it first, twice, three maybe four times and if I can't figure it out , then I pay someone to show me how to do it. Not very often, I am stubborn that way.

Re: What Do You Do for Work/Job?

Started out as a licensed auto mechanic and worked at that until the early 90's when, at 32, I decided to go back to school and become an electronics technologist. Worked with a local telecom system manufacturer for 10 years and earned my CET designation. They eventually sold the business and moved out of town. For the last 9 years I've worked in the gaming industry (slots/vlts) as an account manager. Picked up an MBA a few years back for good measure.
