offshore employment?

Hi folks,

I'm looking for some advice from people knowing the offshore pilot business on the North Sea.

I currently have EASA ATPL(H)+IR theory and just finished CPL(H). I have about 300 hrs on helicopter.

Now I'm wondering if taking the step to invest into IR(H)+ ME(IR) type rated on EC135 will make me employable for a co-pilot job offshore in the North Sea. (from UK, Belgium or Holland). I'm 35 years old.
How's the job-market doing nowadays?

Anyone advice on this?

Thanks in advance!

There seems to be one constant, people do no agree on which direction the market is moving :-)

Manufacturers are talking about expansions in the offshore industry, producing new helicopter models, etc.. and pilots are looking rather negative towards the chances for employment as a new pilot in this sector..?

what shortage?! THE Shortage, that one that we have always heard for years, the one that will bring jobs and careers to all the helicopter pilots, the one that was predicted by Nostradamus...
In resume, the one that will always happen but in fact it never did.

Lets take it serious, there is a small shortage. Go and ask the companies like Bristow, CHC, ADA, Guld, Dan, NHV, and others... there is a shortage of pilots, to be more precise, there is a shortage of Captains and First Officers experienced and qualified in AW139, AW189, S76, S92, AS332L#, EC155, EC175, EC225, AS365N#, Bell412/212. Do i miss any?

This is the shortage... so unless you belong to this group of pilots with this CV, there is no shortage.

Sorry, thats my opinion.

Type ratings are still being provided to those who meet requirements and acceptable to the employer. Hence there's a wait for places on type rating courses.

Well the North Sea did suck up a lot of Police and corporate pilots last summer, so I think you can call that a shortage...

Re rotary jobs - if there are any experienced instructors out there who want a job on the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, North QLD, I know of a bloke who would be happy to share some of those extremely valuable Robbie hours!

Seriously though, PM me if interested.

Working with Fishtail!

I'm not a pro pilot, but you guys must be dead jealous and gaging for the opportunity of a flying career in Nepal! VF is obviously a great pilot and camera man.

Whoever gets the job has big boots to follow!

I'm sure VF will be at your side!

Mmmm ...

Pablo .... try phoning Abu Dhabi Aviation (phone number on their website) and ask to talk to the Chief Pilot Arturo Cruz ...

He is a spanish speaker and will be able to tell you if he can use you .. with your hours expect to only be offered a co-pilot position initially.

You will have to fill out their "online application' which will then go to the 'employment committee' ... expect this process to go on for some time ...

Good luck ...

You´ve got an ATPL, but you´re only rated on SPH?
Maybe that´s the reason..

With 2500 hours, you´re still considered a "youngster"-so don´t be surprised when all they will offer you is a (junior)-copilot position...
