  1. I worked in Africa(Nigeria,Mozambique, Gabon, South Africa as well as Abu Dhabi and also Kazakhstan. Pay was good and the rotations were either 4/4 or 6/6 depending on where the work was and which company i was with in Africa The rotation in Abu Dhabi was 8/4 but the money was still good.

In fact you don't touch anything on the engines until 600, although we do 50hr bleed valve cleanings, 25hr comp. washes. The pay with the lights was always ok, and the work was a
  9. Terrible news, sending my condolences to everyone involved. Worked with VIH before and made many friends with the guys/gals from Cougar. My heart aches for them all right now. Keep your heads up................ rh350
