Falcon Aviation Services

Hi Pruners. Anyone have any info on FAS in the middle East. What contracts are they involved with and what is the coin in those parts.

Thanks in advance.

Have recently been in contact with FAS about job prospects. They are in partnership with Evergreen for a SAR contract in UAE. Sounds like a good gig. Applications are through Evergreen though FAS has more recently advertised for EC130/135 drivers directly. Was told many of the pilots have in excess of 10000hrs! Not sure about the $$$ situation.

Mango season in the North is it Max??????????? People do strange things up there those times.
A reliable source tells me of R22's almost involved in all out shooting range wars up there, east of the bitumen where they wear black hats.
one bloke caught with a mob of scrub bulls tied up, bullcatchers, the whole works, well over the boundary and when sprung said that the lead of his cows got away!!!!!!!??????????? a sullying experience I've heard.

another helicopter operator has a video circulating somewhere well east of there detailing some horrendous cowboy activity in the animal welfare area, yet others seem to be disputing who will be first in best dressed in the rustling stakes on one very well known operators home turf.

Yessir seems like a real entertaining mango season for sure.

I heard that Cal was the Chief Pilot or DO. IF so should be a good outfit. Worked for Cal several years ago at ADA and he is good to work for.

I too worked for Cal at ADA years ago. He's a great guy, a very good pilot and was good at his job as the CP. He and Mike B made an excellent team au contraire to the current one.

FAS have Cal on board at their Ops Mgr., Phil M as their GM, Rohan S, and Kelly B in charge of engineering, Steve McC Tech Services, Peter H in avionics and Jason M in Quality. Six out of the seven are ex ADA employees, need I say more? Looks like FAS is a breath of fresh air in the Middle East.

Bloody Ozzie mafia on the engineering I see

Joking aside, top class team. Rohan S was probably the best CE ADA ever had, though Ross E would be equal IMHO.

FAS

Well, "luke"

In that part of the globe you ARE a third class citizen.

Suck it up buttercup! An old friend of mine is there doing his best to organise the day to day operations. There are options, pursue them and good luck.

Lukeoftheskies,

What a load of $hite. FAS is actually one of the better run companies in the Middle East and now that the Egyptian beancounter has gone and Salem and Phil are running the show again, its back to onwards and upwards. They have great machinery and if you class Phil, Cal Freyer, Rohan, AJ, Salem etc as bad management then you are nuts.

Lets see, brand new 412s, Hermes EC135, Grands etc, yeah real shitty equipment isnt it.

Bayou - if you want some email contacts of guys still working for them drop me a PM and will pass on details.
