Don't scare me!

Dudes,
will someone now tell what the requirements are to get hired on Caravan or King Air or what?

And don't tell me, I get flown to my Camp by a 500h jockey! Please don't!

A caravan is 1000hrs here in Maun, give or take a few hours depending on how short of van drivers they are.
They aren't actually that hard to handle to be honest. The hardest thing about them is engine management. Even that is pretty simple. They are docile and forgiving.

As for King Airs, not too sure, buddy of mine went onto them as a FO with just over 1000hrs.

If the links L0u0k0e has kindly provided then refer my comments and take on posting hours on page 6. Stop wasting time and putting your hours on this thread and allow it to be a discussion for those whose interest lies beyond "here are my hours, contact me...".

actually the purpose of this thread is to put your hours on and nothing else...
That stops the thousands and thousands (over the past how many years) of threads that just have "I have X hours, I want a job"
If you're not interested in reading this, then read one of the other threads... (grin) Leave this as it is, with the occasional - GO HERE or THERE to get information, this is just for listing your hours...

Purpose of thread is two-fold
One: a list
two: to STOP people from posting individual threads of their qualifications
Prior to this list there were hundreds and thousands of "I have X and want a job, please send me your requirements" threads, this has put them all in one place.

Pretty sure I have said it before (with many others).

If your posting your hours on here;

- If an employer needs to trawl through PPRuNe to find a pilot he is not worth working for.

- If you feel the need to employ your hours here to find work then you are lazy and lack social skills to find YOURSELF a job.

Ta.

I have said it before and I will say it again;

- IF an operator is hiring online, then he ain't worth working for.

- IF you post hours here hoping for a job then your will NOT get one.

OK?

STOP HOPING THAT THIS IS A THREAD FOR JOBS!!!!!!!!!!!
