Aucky,

Mr Akinbobola is employed by Bristow HR department in Nigeria, but as 212 man says, the interviews are for those selected for their Nigerian sponsored cadet programme, which is only open to Nigerian graduates - the adverts for applications were in the local papers a few months back.

They may be looking for some qualified S76 pilots though if you're typed on it and have offshore experience.

Thanks - Thats what I thought was odd. I was sent an email inviting me to interview, with some basic info on the cadet program, but as a non-nigerian national I wasn't sure why, and wouldn't have applied on that basis, or seen an ad in a local nigerian paper... (But I did apply for something else with Bristow in Africa). Must have been a mix up. Cheers for the clarification

Perminent cover as far as Im aware.
Current Pilot not had his visa extended.
Probably best paid position at PSNI.

If an organisation wants to encourage good candidates it is a good idea to provide the sort of detail such a candidate would reasonably want.

It is all a question of perspective of course, but as I read it, it is the lowest (or one of the lowest) rates for a current police helicopter pilot in the UK. If you add all the costs of transport and accommodation (which the pilot would personally need to cover), and no idea of duration, it just increases uncertainty. A current, typed police pilot will be comparing rates with what HE can get doing the same work elsewhere. What other people working for PSNI are paid may not be very persuasive for a candidate.

Not trying to be awkward, but helpful. I have flown at PSNI and enjoyed it.

One of the pilots made redundant by NPAS might not have found a place yet, but I would not hold your breath?

Re the PSNI job, instead of relying on PPRuNe for details, I contacted the job advert and received answers to all my questions. Didn't fit my timelines so no go.

The advert is about the standard you seem to get from aviation recruitment agencies. If you see what is posted on Flight Global, there are hundreds of adverts from so-called aviation recruitment specialists who make no mention whatsoever of whether they are even looking for a fixed-wing or rotary-wing pilot. If you ring up and ask them, half the time they dont even know, and they cerainly dont understand much of what you explain to them in terms of your experience. They are just forwarding the information provided by other HR departments (who often do not really know much about it either). Imagine how many pilots a police HR department deals with...(not many). The person in the HR department would not have the faintest idea what the shift pattern is etc. Unfortunately, the "professionals" at the recruitment agencies dont always use their experience to filter out the superfluous and obtain the useful infomation from the customer!

Hi folks, im after some advice.

I havent flown in 5 years, I went into business after my initial training but this year id like to make a return to flying if I can, would appreciate some counsel on how i might achieve that.

I have under 500 hours TT, JAA CPL with IR on the AS355, also have an FAA CPL with IR.

No previous work experience, UK citizen.

If I acquired an R44 type rating, reckon I could pick up some work as a tour pilot somewhere in Europe or in the Canaries as listed above ?

Is 5 years on the ground too long ?

Appreciate your insight.

If you got your IR current, all of the UK offshore operators are currently hiring co-pilots.

PM me if you want some suggestions as to where you could do this.

Bravo 73, no I don't think there are any sex discrimination laws in Malaysia. It may just be a case of the religious attitude of the country and the males of the family feeling happier with a woman teaching their daughter/sister/mother to fly.

Mmmmm ...

.... I don't think there are any sex discrimination laws in Malaysia. ....

The Malaysian legal system though inherited from Britain has some aspects of Sharia Law and is by European standards discriminatory .... as Malaysia (like Indonesia) is an Islamic State (????) ... the local attitudes are different to what might be elsewhere considered 'normal'.

Anyway like Europe they do believe that "What the customer wants the customer gets!!!" (sometimes ).

A quick re-cap for everyone who has sent me a PM recently (and, no, I don't have any inside line or crystal ball):

All the 3 major UK offshore operators are currently hiring.

Bond: Pilots – Bond Offshore Aberdeen | Bond Aviation Group

Bristow: Bristow - bristowgroup.com (ref EBU00340)

CHC: https://www5.recruitingcenter.net/Cl...=13426&esid=az

For all of those positions, you will need (at least) a JAA/EASA CPL(H)/IR, the right to work in the EU and good English. If you have SAR experience (and wish to remain in SAR), if the current rumours are correct, you will be better off applying to Bond or Bristow.
