@ PPI Zulu: I was just waiting for you to take the initiative to check the website and then take the time to post here the rest of the info Next time I will make sure you get silver spoon fed!
@ C4: Since when the Arabian Gulf is a synonym of the rest of the World? Glad you have extensive experience with South Africa and the Middle East, keep sharing your knowledge instead of making smart @ss comments
Thank you for your interest in Everett Aviation and your CV Unfortunately at the present time we are only looking for pilots with BK117 type endorsements and vertical reference experience. I will however keep your details on file and get back to you should the situation change.
"Overseas"? As in outside the States right? Bear in mind this website is a bit more UK centred and there is also a significant international crew out here. So "overseas" tends to be the other way round
About that link, it's definitely old, several companies missing and a bunch of others that either no longer exist or changed names. Some of the links don't work either, check out the Heli Union one for example. But yeah it could be a good start for google cross referenced searched or asking around.
Brazil for instance has many more operators than that, between the Air taxi companies and the Oil Offshore support operators...
On top of having a brazilian passport, things with Brazilian ANAC is a nightmare. I am a Brazilian citizen converting my CPL from Europe. Everyone must do a Law exam in Portuguese before starting applying for the conversion.
On top of it, I've been waiting since February for the paperwork.... close to settle but haven't got my papers yet and we are talking about 4 months with all exams and check rides done, so not easy at all.
There is lot of work right now, but the market is very hard to step in since they are trying as much as possible to protect nationals... it's worthy checking once and a while to see if rules have changed for foreigners...
I see Border Patrol are having another hiring extravaganza on the USA jobs site. All vacancies now require dual FW and rotary ratings. Is this the way forward for CBP now? Anybody in the know? A buddy of mine got hired in the last wave - took 9 months !!
Just a heads up chaps, I recently submitted my resume in for a post that was advertised on “flightglobal/jobs” for a company called “Impex Engineering ltd” located Africa. Yep I don’t know what I was thinking either as it was a little vague but I was at least one glass in.
I have since had a reply asking for my personal info, passport etc. There website which is www.impexengineeringltd.com, looks pretty suspect as it’s a free Google site (click on the bottom of the web page) I can’t be sure but I’m calling scam just in case, I certainly won’t be pursuing this bunch of dodgy looking characters.
I have also received the application form and began to smell a rat. There is another Impex Engineering, based in Malaysia and I've emailed them to see if the two companies are linked in any way (they appear to be genuine). I guess the first thing you have to realise is that if it's Nigeria there's always a chance of a scam. Impex Engineering Ltd (suspect) even has a scam warning on its website (good spot on the free google site issue Brownlees). Has anyone out there advertised with Flight Global? What checks and controls do they have for advertisers? Does it cost anything?
