PAI is known as
Presidential Airways (charter) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also interesting:
Aviation Worldwide Services: Presidential Airways

I find that AWS is more famous than PA (or PAI)..

What´s the background to your question?
Interested in flying there?

Then again-whats your (flying) background?
It´s not a "all days job" down there...

Most Iraq Heli jobs are now taken by Iraqi Nationals. Heli jobs for security Companies are mostly manned by ex-SF or those with previous extensive SF flight operations. Security Companies have been downscaling for quite some time now, so would say not much prospect trying that route.

However, should you manage to gain a vacancy with a non-security company, just think about what would happen should your craft go tech. ..., the locals aren't too partial to Westerners, particularly those in shiny heli's landing in the "Hello Ransom" backyard.

Just some friendly advice.

okay, I already heard about those two "sensitive" company controlled by the very well knowed blackwater private security company! I thought they were fired by the Iraqi gvt??
Anyway, flying in iraq is still a dangerous job which probably requiresair ops military background...
thanks for your answers anyway..

Anyone here had any luck with the Everett positions, or know if they have wrapped up employment? Still see advert on their web site and hear they are still looking.

Heard through the grapevine that Gerry B and a couple of others bailed from Everetts so my guess is they might be looking for pilots for a bit longer.
