Sonair are the main offshore operators out there, also Heli-Union and CHC. The aircraft types are the AS332 L2, EC 225, 365, 76C+ Sonair were short of pilots several months ago, not sure what their hiring policy is, I would guess being fluent in Portuguese is a must.
Know a guy who knows a guy in HM. Says their pretty good, with a fleet of all new Bells, 407, 427/429, 430. Said some CHC Africa guys migrated there, so must be better than CHC, but that's not hard there's a few clips on youtube.
I have already posted on the Nigeria thread asking for contacts and will do the same on the Arabian Gulf thread. So before I get my head bitten off , I am actively seeking work and would be interested to get some contacts for Angola. I have done the normal searches but with no joy.
Anything to get me going in the right direction would be great! All PM's most welcome.
Location: Still on some west coast...but a bit further east of the belt
Heli Malongo is a first class outfit with a sparkling fleet that prompts to no complaints. Living quarters are excellent (brand new), and overall the facilities are on an acceptable standard - contrary to popular believe. Besides the folks are a good bunch to work with.
Hi I´m trying to get some information about HM and Sonair. I have sent my CV to Sonair but at the moment no response. Does anyone have a contact of HM?? I read about their new's S76, will be used for Search&Rescue?? Are HM hiring pilots?? I´m a PC of EH101 with ATPLH/IR, military and start to looking for a position on the civilian side.
Looking for information (good and bad on working for the company, typical salary, work and living conditions) on Heli Malongo in Angola. Has anyone worked for them recently who can comment knowledgeably? Thanks.
They seem to be notoriously difficult to get hold of. I recall there was a previous thread about them a while back, perhaps try a search.
I did hear second hand that they retrenched a few pilots earlier in the year but it seems that Angola is the up and coming offshore spot in Africa nowadays so perhaps it has good prospects as things improve....
Heli Malongo has a good pay scale but not much in the way of benefits. The chief pilot's e-mail is email@example.com The Director of Maintenance e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org They currently operate Bell 427, Bell 430, and Bell 430. They will begin taking delivery of S-76 C++ beginning in December. The current fleet of helicopters totals 17. After the S-76's arrive, the helicopter fleet will total 25. There is an ad running in justhelicopters right now for mechanics.
