The article stated where the pilots were based in Curacao hence flying AW139 for the Coast Guard ; so figured they were informed their CVs pulled up (I had to do that for every employee as part of my internal audit in old helicopter company I worked for, i.a.w EASA changes) and they were non Brits / trained in USA etc etc which had to have a degree??

If for some reason management says "ok peeps, under x,y,z may need a degree, lests send you both or do a distance learning course with one of the many aviation colleges stateside and earm it within 5-6 years"

cheers
They where Brits and they hold EASA licences. Pilots and engineers!
