Coastal Aviation Tanzania?

Anybody know anything about em'? Seems like it'd be a good place to work. I've been emailing the company, but with no response yet.

Hi,

To be honest, unless they get back, which is rare. You will just have to rock up and try your luck. They will be looking for van time but do have a few 206's.

they mswahili'd the caravan

2 pilots in the caravan at coastal. Lol. That does not sound fun. When will you learn over-complicating simple things can lead to new risks... especially when you double up on pilot-error..

Just a guy being a ****.

​​​​​​He's implying that since a caravan is a single pilot aircraft, then it shouldn't be flown two crew.
Apparently somehow, having two crew in a single pilot aircraft, makes it more dangerous as they both combine in making pilot error mistakes rather than one catching the other.

I guess pilots of caravans are unprofessional and don't follow any sort of SOP since its a single pilot aircraft.

Ignore it.

Yeah I'm implying that there is no operational need for 2 pilots in a Caravan. Why not 2-crew a 206 while Coastal is at it? I flew vans for 3 years single pilot... it was FUN and EASY.. why on earth over complicate things? 1900 is a single pilot machine.. but that's a whole different animal.. so I am all for 2-crew where it makes sense.. but why 2-crew caravans at Coastal? It is overkill. Sounds to me if they were having trouble operating caravans single-pilot, they must of been hiring dummies.. putting a 250 hour pilot into the right seat won't remedy that. PLUS 2-crew in a caravan takes all the fun out of it!

Not to mention lost revenue from a right-seat filler! It's Coastal's prerogative... but WHY? It is completely unnecessary. Flying single-pilot with 13 passengers was part of the adventure that got me to pack my bags for Africa.. having to call "flaps 10" to Pilot Monitoring would have taken all the fun out of it! And that is why people become pilots no?

I am guessing it may have something to do with this clause out of the Tanzanian air law:

41.-(1) A person shall not conduct a single pilot operation under the instrument flight rules or at night unless the operation is approved by the Authority and-
(a) the flight manual does not require a flight crew of more than one;
(b) the aeroplane is propeller-driven;
(c) the maximum approved passenger seating configuration of the aeroplane is not more than nine;
(d) the maximum certificated take-off mass of the aeroplane is 5,700 kg or less;
(e) the aeroplane is equipped as described in sub-regulation (3); and
(f) the pilot has satisfied requirements of experience, training, checking and regency as prescribed by regulation 36.

(2) Notwithstanding the provisions of sub-regulation (1) (c) the Authority may approve a single pilot operation under IFR or at night for an aero plane with a passenger seating configuration of more than nine if the aero plane, in addition to meeting the requirements of sub-regulation (1) (a), (b), (d), (e) and (f), is type certificated for operation by a single pilot.

(3) A person conducting a single pilot operation under the IFR or at night shall ensure that the aeroplane is equipped with- (a) a serviceable autopilot that has at least altitude hold and heading select modes; (b) a headset with a boom microphone or equivalent; and

My understanding is that they had 2 accidents within a short time frame and that the introduction of 2 crew operations were a reaction to that.

tanzanian local institution initiative at work. Hire our incompetent pilots or your certificate won’t be renewed.

Nice copy and paste Saffa.. that's how TCAA got their regs.. they are a COPY & PASTE Civil Aviation Organization... ******* joke.. i remember writing a type exam and somehow i got like 15% as my exam score.. cause the dumb ex-ATC fat TCAA bitch can't get the right answer key.. TCAA is a joke.. 4runner is right... TCAA is pushing the local pilots into right seats of their operators.. the only incident i ever had flying in tanzania over 4 years was with a friggin hour builder local pilot who tagged along and didnt listen to me.. fu ker is at Precision now operating flaps and gear.. good for him. what a knob.. Coastal has all broken autopilots last i remember.. so makes sense they need a second crewmember to meet the IFR regs.. but thats just a technicality to fill the right seat with undesirable shit pilots.. a local 250-hour-wonder does not compare to a working autopilot!
