Hi everybody,

Heliportugal had a lot of advertisement posted through March aviation/Flightglobal/Aviationjobsearch a few months ago.

Anybody heard anything after they applied???

Have you actually spoken to the company? My understanding is that their recruitment process has not started yet. Either the agencies or the company themselves are worth a call before writing them off.
Companies plans change all the time and the industry is full of cancellations and postponements. May be a perfectly good reason, or you might be right. I found them very helpful.

Same here, sent my CV a couple months ago...no reply. I heard the guy in charge for recruiting is a S. African who was previously commercial director for Netjets and got kicked out for doing a cr..p job...maybe is not paying attention to the market!
My (inside) sources tell me the advertising is well well overstated and the real money is...for experienced Capts. after taxes arround 64000 euros/year net.
They operate 365's in Romenia and Turkey on equal rotation 28/28 or 14/14 and soon will have a couple 139's...but rumors say they will be heading for Nigerian partner Caverton...

Thumbs down

Heliportugal and Caverton have a close affiliation because both companies are run by spoilt little rich kids who think they know it all and don't want to listen to the professionals they sometimes employ, so they end up with a bunch of yes-men or guys who'll do anything to make a buck

Got an Email last week and they included their economic package.
I can confirm the numbers even though they include per diem.
