Aero Rescue

Anyone have any current info on Aero Rescue such as the standard:

-Pay
-Allowances
- Hours flown
- Company culture
- Hours flown a year
- Interview structure and questions

Please don't speculate, facts would be good

Also looking for the same information (PM's preferred), that may differ from the already existing threads found between 2008-2013.

Cheers

Less than 100 hours a year.

Suit semi retirement for someone looking at slowing down the flying career vs building hours.

She's an orphan aircraft. If you're interested in that type of work, go to cobham and fly the trash 8.

Close to 75k for an effo. 40% more for a skipper.

It'll take 6 months to check to line, simply because of the limited opportunity for line training. It's not like there is scheduled flights or anything.

I read somewhere that Cobham may be going to do it, it was on here I think? Any substance in that rumour? Also notice that Cobham are advertising for pilots, both Captains and FO's. If I had a choice and was looking at this kind of work I know who I would be applying to.

Various government departments have been looking at combining the AMSA SAR and Coastwatch contracts. The earliest that could happen was 2020, from memory. There was also talk of a combined SAR/Disaster Relief contract. Combining contracts run by different government departments is like waiting for the planets to align, and hasn't been successful in the past, with the possible exception of asylum seeker contracts...

Or if CASA decides to pull the AOC, there might not be much choice but to get Cobham to pick up the work.....but I only heard a rumour about some dodgy Dornier stuff....or did the pilots really do those things?

Unsure as yet !

Anyone have an update on the FO pay on the CL604?

COB HAM haven't got that issue sussed just as yet FYI.

It's ( the money side ) is close, but from Marty in TSV it'll be CAPT $120 000 base & FO 60 % of that.

Bases are CS, PH & ML .

Not a lot of Kina to steer a CL 604 around for mine, Tom is tight as we know

Considering it's pretty much a part time job, it would be a tad greedy to expect too much more.

Can't see how it could be considered a "part time job". The job description I'm hearing is not designed for any part timer.

I'd imagine flying a jet to the task and then fly it at dot feet would be demanding at the very least.

You would be better to describ it as a "full time job" requiring a high skill set.

Hours flown per year are not the marker for professionalism

74k for an FO. That'd have to be an all time low! Only 55% of a captains wage too! U can easily earn that (and in most cases significantly better) in the RHS of a Saab, Dash, or ATR!

What duties/activities are there to do when waitng for a call out? Is it structured by the company or you do your own thing?

It's interesting that they have acquired an aircraft well ahead of the planned August 2016 start. Is to be used for training perhaps..

I wouldn't call flying on autopilot for the whole trip, exactly "demanding"
