I heard they have laid off some pilots and forced some married accompanied ones to go onto 6/6 against their will. Whether this is linked to FL's retirement and a new acting DOPs I don't know....

I'm considering the 6/6 because move full time to Quatar is not really what i want.
However salary from what i understand is not really good, considering they pay only working days, and not so much.

Matteolo,
Most companies in the Arabian Gulf area only pay your working days, unless you get a "resident" status.

Thanks Tottigoal i didn't know that.
I thought companies like GH, ADA... where paying also the vacations.

However the salary is not so good, this is why i'm trying to understand how is the situation, if some effort can worth the choice, or not.

I'm considering in enter the offshore market, to make a bit more experience on big heli, but i think that this is the worst time to do that, with this oil price.

GHC News?

Understand Redundancies are lightly in some areas due the oil downturn. Would not leave a sound job to join them just now???

OH
