I got an interview with www.insitu.com to be a field service rep / engineer on their Scan Eagle UAV program. Anyone here doing that or has interviewed? Would appreciate some feedback on what the interview will involve.

Also, pay while deployed , bonuses (if any), etc...

Thanks,
LAFF

Looks like I have to wait until I am back in the USA before they will push forward on this. I'm deployed out here to Iraq with the AF. So they don't want to do anything until after I'm back and retirement is in sight. Mid 09 at the earliest.

I'm also considering getting the rest of the ratings and applying to General Atomics.

Seems UAVs will be a growth industry. I can always buy my own small c-152 or CFI to fly 'real' planes...

Do you have a current / active security clearance? They may be screening / hiring based on that alone. I forget the $$$ figure but when a company has to pay for one they are leary - big financial / time risk on their part.

Keep updating and if you need a job send resume to insitu and see what happens.

Thanks for the support.

Can you get into reserves to get a clearance? I would. That security clearance is proving to be the golden ticket for me - glad I got that on my resume.

Things are getting exciting. May have the option of going to UPT with the AF. I'll keep you posted but if you're just spinning your wheels as a CFI go see the military recruiters and get yourself to OTS!!!
