And remember the agreement between the Pilots Association and Banks:

They will not fly helicopters if we do not finance companies!!!

Yes, in the Spanish Air Force you sign for 17 years. BUT in the civilian side it's not possible to "invite" the employees to sign for more than two years.

Any jobs out there?

Any jobs out there???

When I talk to other pilot colleagues there is always mention of one big operator or other looking for pilots. Yet no one I know is having any luck at all in finding these mysterious vacancies.

I often wonder where all of the jobs are myself. I get told there are lots of jobs, but no-one seems to be hiring.

4k hrs, ATPL(IR), 3k Multi Eng offshore experience in different parts of world inc North Sea. Doesnt seem to count for anything.

Often its who you know, not what you know or what your quals are. Just keep plugging away and you'll get a break if you show willingness.

Good luck.

It´s not only hours-you know that…

It´s having the right amount of hours…the right experience….the right type ratings…the right licenses….the right work visa/right to live and work somewhere…..and: The right idea of how much money you can expect...

I don't know about the others, but as B-412 pilot I obviously don't have any chance for job. I am looking now for 8 months and nothing is happening. I tried a million different approachec but tipically no reply or strange working conditions.

Miklavz,
There are several companies looking for 412 Captains on line, I guess you tried them all?

Do you have a strong CV and cover letter? Have you had a friend check your CV/Application?

Strange working conditions....sometimes strange working conditions are better than no job at all, except if you have a lot of cash in your bank account

Have you tried Caverton in Nigeria?

Good luck and hope you will find something soon!

Thank you, Helinaut! I just send today my CV to Calverton - I hope I have the correct email adress. Othervise I would appreciate if someone can send me the correct one. The one I use is from their web page.... [email protected]
And yes, I tried to apply to most of them; USA is out of possibilities because I don't have Green cart.
For the rest of the world - allmost no replies.
Anyway, I'm ready to work anywhere - OK, almost anywhere. So, any help?
Thanks in advance.
Mike

I think Caverscam had one 412 on a police contract in Lagos and another had picked up a short contract for Totaldisaster near Warri, but that was over a year ago, so I'm guessing just one operating for the police now. All the majors utilise 139
However, this is a rumour network and I don't actually exist

Caverton 412

I see the Caverton 412's flying at NAF Base and if I remember correctly, they were just recently looking for 412 Pilots.

Griffo...All the "majors" are utilizing 139? Hmmm...I guess Bristow is not a major right?!?! Next time you taxi out at NAF base have a look around and then tell me what you see. 139's?
BTW, I wish Bristow would have 139's...I would only need two tours to be out of there

Caverton has two bell 412's at the moment and a thrid one coming shortly. Two would be based in lagos and the third one is going to be based in ph for a total contract.
Now one is in lagos and the second one in PH flying with total.

As far as I know they are not hiring any bell 412 pilot at the moment....

Cheers!

I have just discovered this forum and I have to say how much I appreciate the folks who have taken the time to post.

I'm always looking for "the next" job, even though I'm working, as I think many here do. I got my training thru the military and have only been working the civil sector for 3 years. Even though my training was, to me, "hard won", I find that I'm still a neophyte on the outside.

A few observations for those who are just starting out. Kudos for the dedication and energy required to acquire your training on the civil side and build your hours to get the jobs. Not sure I could have put up with the 'suck' that is required on that route. Don't give up. Another truth that I've found, which has been stated here already, ...... a tremendous amount depends on who you know. Network, network, network! Timing and willingness also help. Risks in this business are abundant and not just in the air.

Off my soapbox.....

I'm looking to get into O&G offshore. I have a lot of twin turbine time, mainly S70 and a FAA ATPH. The only type I have which is being used offshore is S332 (400 hrs).

Question: How often do companies give type training for a/c they fly, when required, and what is the best way to approach them?
