I tried that before without success.
I received an email address from a ppruner and got no answer.
The email address was ltde@chevron.com
The ops manager there is called Lou d'Elia.
Again, I never received a reply. I had 2500 hours total with 1000 hrs. Bell212 offshore at that time.
Good luck, let me know if anything happens.
Cheers,

Bitmonx

Danger

It's probably too late anyway, I expect they're inundated with applications from Bristow pilots in Nigeria right now

Angola: Heli Malongo selects S-76C++™ for new SAR service

FARNBOROUGH INTERNATIONAL AIR SHOW, July 16, 2008 – Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. has been selected by Heli Malongo to provide three S-76C++™ aircraft for its new Search and Rescue (SAR) service in Angola, Sikorsky announced today from the Farnborough International Air Show. Sikorsky is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

The agreement marks Heli Malongo’s first purchase of a Sikorsky Aircraft product. Heli Malongo, an offshore oil operator based in Angola already operating 20 aircraft, plans to establish a Search and Rescue service to support the country’s growing oil industry. It will be the first Search and Rescue operation to serve Angola.

“SAR missions require speed, agility and responsiveness, and the S-76C++ helicopter delivers on all counts,“ said Sikorsky Vice President & Chief Marketing Officer Stephen B. Estill. “Our SAR helicopters are mission ready. We are pleased to have the opportunity to demonstrate the ability of our aircraft to Heli Malongo.”

The decision to choose the S-76C++ helicopter comes after a comprehensive selection process, heavily focused on mission requirements. Heli Malongo was in need of a highly equipped Search and Rescue aircraft with a responsive support system that would enable them to perform even through the most demanding missions.

“We demonstrated that the S-76C++ helicopter is well suited for SAR missions and met Heli Malongo’s detailed requirements,” Estill said.

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., based in Stratford, Conn., USA, is a world leader in helicopter design, manufacture, and service. The company’s long commitment to safety and innovation is reflected in its mission statement: “We pioneer flight solutions that bring people home everywhere … every time™.“ United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Conn., USA, provides a broad range of high-technology products and support services to the aerospace and building systems industries.

Angola

After reading the "Whats new in West Africa" thread, I was wondering about Angola and companies like Heli Malongo.

What is the living standards like there? Is there much Violence like Nigeria?
Or is everything just rosy?

I hear the hours a plentiful.

Hello Next Please,

As an resident expat in Luanda, I can say life here is not really rosy, far from it. But violence is not as bad as you could find in some other big african cities... and obviously much less than what we get in Nigeria.
As for Heli malongo helicopters, they are based at the Malongo oil base, North of Cabinda city, and life here probably looks like a common camp life, Here too, no reported violence as we hear from Nigeria.
As you say, "hours are plentyfull !"

NextPlease:

The Cabinda enclave has seen plenty of violence in the past but it has diminished recently as the government and the local separatists (FLEC) have hammered out a peace agreement.

http://www.cabinda.net/

Small scale violence still occurs, but nothing on the scale of early and mid-eighties.

I worked in Malongo for PHI then, and times were interesting indeed. The Cubans guarded our facility (bet that makes Airship and Sunray's head spin), and we had great times trading beer and cigarettes over the back fence with them. Later, one of our mechanics was taken hostage and held in the forest for months.

Some South Africans tried to sabatoge the facility at one point (only to be killed or captured, and tried in Luanda). A media circus including the American eternal activist Jesse Jackson followed--man that guy can get around--but that is for another thread).

FLEC in the north, and Unita in the south, are mostly quiet, and consequently Angola resembles a typical corrupt, malfunctioning African oil state these days.

Weather is pleasant mostly, and rainy season makes navigating the storms fun. Biggest danger would be from malaria...take the pills. Oh, that and the bat guano droppings raining on your head while waiting in the chow line...
