Anyone have a clue on the marketplace?

Hi everyone,

I'm an ex Brit Army pilot returning to flying after 10 years. Just in the process of doing CPL.

Total - 3158 S341/2 Gazelle
PIC - 2426
Turbine - 3145
Night - 390
NVG - 180

Inst. Actual - 108
Sim - 73

R22 - 10.5 (with more to come)

Just trying to get some feedback from people with a 'finger on the pulse' on the job prospects overall. Either currently employed pilots or people looking, like me. How about the Instructor route ? - is there any work (before I fork out for the course).

Any help would be much appreciated.


Sorry - forgot to add that I in UK at the moment.

The Police might be looking for pilots like you.

Maybe, but we normally like to have Real Men flying our aircraft.

Check out the CHC website in March. Maybe ABZ vacancies.

Care to elaborate? Thought that there were recent propspects of the numbers reducing?

No specific leads for you but be prepared to be expected to get a twin rating before you can do anything worthwhile in UK.
