Excuse me if I've missed the point. Can't imagine for a second Bristow will bring in any of our North Sea friends as foreign contractors, whatever the daily rates? Foreign doctors and nurses etc, for sure, shortages of occupants in those professions are desperately needed here. But there are so many helicopter pilots in Australia not working who should be working that it would be inconceivable that the necessary visa for foreign helicopter pilot contractors would be granted.

I thought on recent form that Bristows were putting on low experience local hires and nuturing them through their training systems, and for which they should be commended. Is that still not the case??

$500/day + DTA for FO's is a good rate, better money than working as a P1 in PNG.
