Not disputing the 225/92 issue but 3 on 3 off, no annual leave, no DTA, 457 Visas strikes me as a downward move in pay and conditions in Oz.

Pretty obvious. Back when I was in Broome it was two on/off for Bristow pilots. 3/3 cuts down the beans spent on travelling.

BRS pilots certainly had a good life in Australia. It couldn't last. When I was inbound to do some contract flying a few years ago I was asked if I would consider sharing with another pilot? If I agreed they would pay me an extra $125 per day. I said thanks - but I would prefer my own room. Oh! - we don't mean sharing a room - we mean would you share a 3 bedroom house and pool with another pilot for an extra $125 per day?

So how many contracts / people have BRS now.
I don't think they have any unless they get the beach contract back in Vic. if they don't it will just be the airline in darwin

And so the bell tolls for Bristow Aus, they go from near on 90% of the offshore market with 150 pilots and a similar number of engineers to nothing. How could the leading provider of offshore services in Australia have been scuttled like that?

Arrogance, hubris and a determination of management to be distracted from the best interests of the business by pursuing petty agendas. Thereís three ways for starters.

Looks like they moved AW139 VH-PXF to Warrnambool over the weekend, pictured below in the Babcock SAR livery landing in Adelaide.

Nope, they'll need the complete the contact. This is an ex-CHC machine.

Do they have TUPE in Oz or do the old personnel just get their cards.

No tupe, but theyíll get $250k in the bank from a massive redundancy payout, and most of them are due to retire anyway.

I don't know they are faring at Aberdeen. I checked the flying programme today and they had thirteen flights. When I last flew from there it was about sixty five/seventy.
