All change again at CHC. CHC Global and CHC Europe are being merged into one 'Flying Operations' division.

So Neil Calvert is the only person left from the Dobbin era.

A global oil & gas division could be a response to Bristow abandoning their East & West Divisions. It could however be a sign they want to spin off their SAR/EMS business from oil & gas.

I can see that spinning SAR from oil and gas will be a major strategy for CHC. It has wanted to divorce the payscales for some time as while it is economic to charge the oil companies for oil and gas pilots salaries (a senior captain is on 100K) SAR cannot support these salaries. The salaries they will be looking at are around the higher end of Police/ Ambulance plus a few extra thousand for the less popular bases.

So Tilman Gabriel is moving to SAR, presumably as a last ditch attempt to convince the government to sign up for SAR-H.

And Scott Pinfield, who originally moved to SAR to assist in the bid, is moving back to O&G operations to presumably keep morale low there too?

What does CHC have to do to restore confidence after the SARH debacle? The company are a disgrace in the eyes of many after the way they managed the leak of information and don't try that old chestnut that senior management didn't know about it..ha ha ha ha ha.

If you genuinely believe pilots will fly SAR in heavies in all those outstations for the same salaries as police/hems drivers - you're not smelling the right coffee, I would suggest

There will be no shortage of qualified applicants for the SAR positions. If they don't get local pilots they will bring them in from overseas.

Thats just to be nearer the oil companies who are mainly based in Perth.

It would be difficult to keep hold of engineers in SAR if using the S92/EC225 and not paying the O&G rates. People will get experience and type ratings and be off at the first opportunity.

Just heard that the "new" CHC Canada has lost their one and only contract in the Sable Island gas fields. Not sure who won it but I imagine Cougar would be the safe bet.

Might even stifle it too.

Could certainly explain why recruitment has suddenly stopped.

Did this get mixed up with the thread about Cougar?

Probably time for Bristow or INAER/Bond to form a JV in Canada.
Good luck with that

Maybe you spoke a little too soon there squib? Is this the beginning of the end for H1?

Why would the announcement that Niel Calvert is retiring from Heli-One and stepping down as CEO and President mean the end of Heli-One?

Just one of the many changes that CHC is going through currently.
