That is honestly good to hear that companies are making such efforts by not wasting people's time and resources... it was always kind of a risk you had to take back in my days.

Wilderness Air have just posted an advert on their Facebook page, applications opened on the 7th and close on the 24th September 2018, reference number WAIR-BOTS013.

Qualifications
850 hours Experience or more
C208 Rating or Turbine experience would added advantage


That is a straight copy of part of the advert.

Good luck to one and all.

Not too long ago Wilderness was hiring 200 hr pilots, now they want guys with 850 hrs plus a Van rating? Cathay will take you on at 250 hrs.

Well, nobody gets a call from Cathay with less then 750TT, their internal requirement . Been there in Jun and standards for passing the 777 sim are still high even though they say its lowest ever.

I read here on this forum that you can pass sim if you don`t crash more then twice,maybe it was a joke...

This is not a Wilderness requirement, let's say that expat pilots with less than 500hrs have zero chances to get a working permit, 800hrs is even better! Nowadays when companies are looking to hire junior pilots they take them from the local schools, no more 250hrs expat jobs available in Botswana!
