Contract Position
 
Can any fellow Ppruner's recommend/know/think of any employers around GA that employ single engine pilots for a 3-4 month position? From friends up north its too late in the season for Kimberley operators. I personally think it is unfair to apply for year round roles under false pretenses only to leave a few months later however its turning out to be a case of nice guys finish last.

I have a bit of experience including >2500PIC so not an entry level pilot however would be quite happy in a 210 or Airvan - a flying job is a flying job

Cheers!

Got any turbine? Maybe skydiving..weekends and public holiday reserve or something..?

Thanks,

I'm turbine experienced but not CASA rated - I've been overseas for the past few years so no point wasting time and money converting endorsements/ratings for CASA. I'm willing to go anywhere remote, its just that i want to avoid working at the local Macca's for 3 - 4 months.

Try Shoal Air in Kununurra. Heard they’re looking, not sure on the short term contract but might suit their seasonal work.

There’s a power line surveillance operator based in Albury usually after pilots. Oberon Air I think?

If you have tailwheel time then there is always the fire season in the scouts. Though they may have already hired for the year.

Well last time i transferred a basic rating it took 5 weeks! Its not justifiable for only a 3 month period would take half the period just to transfer

I'm not real bright but I think the OP was saying he has other endorsements, but is not going to get then all switched to be CAsA accepted on his current CAsA licence - Just for the fun of it.

What's a Turbine going to cost to put on the CAsA licence?

But I bet, happy to convert if a job is offered!

As I read it, he has no interest in work that would require him to transfer any endorsements. He just wants a bit of VFR piston work for a few months and presumably he has a CASA CPL that lets him do that already.
