  1. Heard they where hiring, I would be interested to know some more details as well...... From what a mate told me the UAE operators go in this order from best to worst: FAS (touring) AeroGulf (married accompanied) ADA (touring) Gulf (touring or married accompanied) This info is a bit dated so things may have changed
  2. Bit of a generalisation don't you think? I have worked with some great pilots from Quebec! I guess we can't all be as talented as you Pilot 5. Anyway I am glad that I am still stealing jobs in the great white north Pilot 5..get a dog up ya!
  3. Just wondering what is the exact definition of 'Offshore' flying is? I currently fly where I am over water 95% of the time, sometimes IFR sometimes VFR in a multi engine helicopter operation. I never land on any offshore platforms though, it's Airport to Airport or HLS all land based. Does this constitute 'Offshore operations' ? Or is offshore mainly recognised in conjunction with landing on offshore platforms or vessels? Cheers, OB
  4. Geez that would be fun....night sun approaches into camps at night....sounds like NVG would be the go
  5. So just VFR work but need IFR and ATPL for contract requirements?
  6. Does anyone have any info on the job? How long is it running for? Pay scale?
  7. Just throwing this out there....does anyone have a current copy of Australian Civil Aviation Regulations..? Would they be willing to lend it or sell it or let me have it for now then I will replace it soon. Cheers, OB
  8. WOW for Command Instrument Rating, Multi Engine time, NVG and ATPL it pays very low. Can make more than that flying VFR with a CPL H in a single overseas. I know ball park EMS in Australia just to compare- Command Instrument Rating, Single Pilot Multi Engine, Multi engine time, NVG and ATPL entry level as a Captain would be about 110k to 130k with good benefits. Also I think working for a non profit org there is some sort of tax incentive but to how that works I am not really sure. No incentive staying with a company for ten years from looking at that pay scale. Isn't it funny how
  9. Well looks like "Happy Feet" had his dream come true, no one to steal all his work and now it seems no one to be able to do the work! What goes around comes around I guess
  10. I did almost 3 years there and would go back without hesitation. I left toward the end of 2007. I can not comment about it nowadays but back then we flew lots and kept busy year round with seismic mostly in the winter and fires and drills in the summer. Cheers, OB
  11. His name is Craig Crumblin, he had surgery on Monday and is doing fine. He has 1 smashed vertebrae, a cracked sternum and a bunch of broken ribs. His spirits are high and his family and friends are with him. OB
  12. Statement was not referring to low hour pilots.
  13. Why is it every winter or fall in Canada a thread starts on here complaining about foreign workers taking jobs from Canadians? This thread was a simple question that not once mentioned work or obtaining work. Let it go! Right now there are many Canadians flying Australian registered machines in Australia on fires and they are welcome to come and fly without and forum threads starting up on there local online site 'bladeslapper' crying about aussies not having a job flying and foreign workers taking them away. I noticed no complaints over the summer about foreign workers flying i
