    BRP Employment Opportunity

    Bombardier Recreational Products is looking to hire test pilots for their PWC and Can-Am Spyder Roadster. A clean license with a motorcycle endorsement is required. Employment would mostly be in Central Florida

    This is a great opportunity to ride the proto-type vehicles and give your input on needed changes while getting paid for doing it. And the gas and repairs are on BRP !!

    One thing for sure...you don't get to pick the days when you ride. Wind, rain, cold, rough seas...it's all part of the job. You only stop riding when it's time to refuel. A year or two as a test pilot and any PWC Iron Man Endurance Race Competition would be a piece of cake !

    Anyone wanting to apply, email me for info.

    I did this around 10 years ago when they were out in Grant on the river.

    The novelty wears off in the middle of your first shift. They put you on whatever boat they need you for including the slow 3 seaters. You are basically there to put hours on skis to see what breaks first. You have to constantly ride a course and can't come in until fuel stop.

    Eventually when you become lead you can help engineers with the skis they are comming up with, but other than that you are basically a body.

    Pay was a around few dollars more than minimum wage when you start out.

    It was a pretty cool job though when you graduate HS though, and it did keep me a little tan

    Keep in mind this was around 10 years ago and things might of changed. But I still see them doing the same thing out in the "compound" in Palm Bay where they moved their opperations too.

    Ditto to what barracade said. I did this for 2 years back around '94 when they changed the hulls over. Aside from the ocean testing we got to do you learned what the term monotony means. Pay wasn't great but they did occasionally hire chicks who wore g-string bikinis and then everyone jockeyed for position on the buoy course.
