Question Any non passenger daytime only commercial work out there ?

I have a UK CPL and IMC rating and FAA CPL/IR as well as 1000 hours and 500 instruction (all SE so far)

Due to colour "blindness" my license is restricted to "daytime only" and "no passenger transport" - but as you can't keep a good man down I would like to know if there are any operators out there who conduct day only operations such as pipeline survey, parcel delivery, coastal patrol or anything similar that might pay a wage and keep me flying ?

I'm afraid you are posting to the wrong forum (although I'm not sure what would be the right one here). The freight dogs here are mostly involved in a 5 to 120 tonnes capacity birds and business around such birds rather than single-engine and/or one man crew things...

Neil, I will leave you to your nocturnal lifestyle but as you guys and girls are well advanced in your careers perhaps you would keep your ears close to the ground for anything that might get me sorted. I do have an exciting opportunity that I have fingers crossed for but it is taking a bit longer than expected hence my post (always have a plan B)

Every man and his dog would sell his mother for a job like that.
