Airmed PA31

They seem to have high hour requirements. If a pilot met those I would have guessed he/ she would be in Rex or similar

Might be so high time can match with the high aircraft hours? How many around now with less that 10,000 hours?

A Pa31 with10,000 hrs ? That's barely broken in ! The Ho I last flew 3 years ago had just crossed the 28,000 hr mark.

2000 total and 500 multi ? That seems pretty reasonable to me, based on my 1990's knowledge of the market.

They’ve explained it on the advert

May appear high hours to you but , the requirement would have been double that twenty five years ago and more still in times prior to that.

There would have been a queue around the block with those hour requirements in the 90s. Then someone with 5k+ and 2k on type would have got the job.

Probably also contract requirements.

The experience being asked is quite reasonable. Id imagine it wont be long until the aircraft are replaced with turbo props.

Id argue a pilot with 2000hrs is also barely broken in!!

Is TZY and SAO still flying? They had some hours on them years ago.

Anyone remember DAP? It was a tired old bird when it was lost with crew doing target towing off Nowra. Really sad story and should never have happened.

I'm surprised they haven't been already.

The hours are a contractual requirement, however, there is a waiver process they can use to reduce the hours. There is at least one pilot being moved across from Air Link with less than 2000 tt. And REX hahahaha, I'd rather stick a fork in my eye.

Soggy SAO scrapped a loooooong time ago.

I think a skydiving mob may have picked it up there for a while
