I am searching for work in the middle east and interested with this operator. Any advice on how to land a job in the region? Any other operators recommended to look at?

If you have the qualifications and if they have the vacancy they will call you for an interview for sure.It's simple like that.

Gulf Helicopters are allways open to receive Cv's and normally hiring .I used to Know some guys when I flew for QR .The package used to be good.

As you already know they require:

Offshore Experience.
Current ICAO ATPL(H) with IR.
Valid Class 1 Medical.
Current Instrument Rating.
2500 hours Helicopter TT (1500 PIC).
Min 100 hrs B412/212/S92/AW139

Abu Dhabi Aviation In United Arab Emirates is another option and better in my opinion (I like Abu Dhabi)and always hiring too. Big fleet! THey don'T hire like an airline but keep hiring because people like to move.

Those 2 are the best and most secure jobs for heli pilots in ME. Private helis can be awesome in Qatar or UAE , but can end without Notice as Well.

I Wish you Luck!

It's a very easy life in Middle East as a Heli Offshore Pilot comparing to the North Atlantic Operations.You just have to get used to Inferno Heat from july to sept and other things but it fades away as you get used to it.
