so the logical thing to do would be to dump HNZ and use BRS for transfers AND you would get AWSAR as well
Crab why would i dump the company that i work for? until this year BRS had the whole contract anyway.

Had the clients not gambled their personnels safety on an unapproved, low cost operator (who clearly can't deliver a genuine LIMSAR service, let alone AWSAR) then BHL would have already been delivering an AWSAR service!
You get what you pay for right?!

The water is warm, not sure why they'd need an AWSAR capability. In Bass Strait the water is cold: for almost 50 years Esso has never had a night SAR capability, or all-WX day capability for that matter. This must be a new-age Shell driven thing.

As far as I know, if an Esso crew gets called out at night, and the unfortunate should happen and they end up floating on the tide, they continue floating until day break.

Under the agreement announced Tuesday, HNZ shareholders will receive $18.70 per share — 43 per cent above Monday's closing price at the Toronto Stock Exchange.

in your language its a lesser service so a dedicated 15 minute LIMSAR and medevac with AWSAR in Q1 2018 which is the same as brs was giving but brs wasn't on 15 minute sar.

Which part is the LIM in LIMSAR? Is it daylight only, VMC only, no winching or what exactly? Its rather a vague term.

I'm not so sure about that. The news grab I saw specifically mentioned the visa was only to go to foreign pilots working for Regional Airlines, and only for 2 or 4 years. I guess at the very least it's the thin edge of the wedge to open the door for helicopter pilots to come here. HNZ are paying some of their AW139 line pilots $190k per year plus car, you'd need an armored door to hold back the flood of International applicants keen to get their snouts in that trough.

Oh yes they are, their contract pilots flying Esso AW139 are on that deal.

Too true, too true!

Out of curiosity, what percentage of the "not low cost" operator's medevacs launched in the prescribed timeframe before they were replaced.....?
