Just wondering if anyone has experience flying with any operation in the Caribbean?I currently have 1050hrs TT and 50hrs PIC Twin Otter and looking for a twinotter gig or something similar anywhere in the world. The Caribbean seams tofit my style though, short field landings, windy, and just challenging. Ifanyone has any recommendations or insights please let me know. Thanks.

Try Seaborne in St. Croix. Might need a float rating. Make sure you understand what living in the USVI is all about before you go.

Is it bad to live in the USVI???
What did you mean??

Depends which island in the USVI, but I found the people in St Thomas to be very apathetic, and the whole place kinda run down. You hardly see a smile from any of the locals. And they drive on the left...with left hand drive cars. :eek:

Try - SVG out of Barbados and other islands in the region.
Also Coconut Airways (yes, like the song!) so it would not hurt to chnage your name to Tobias Wilcox (maybe if you get the joke you may be too old)
Executive Air are a possibility too
Be aware though that the work permit siuation in the Eastern Caribbean region is difficult, they do not give them out like smarties.

Here is a discussion on living in the VI. For the record, I love the place and if single would move back. I would NEVER bring my family there to live.
