I can not understand (if im reading correctly) that a company asks for a fee to receive applications nowadays. "application fee - non refundable) for Rs. 295/- (Rupees two hundred and ninety five only"

It seems as though the UK job market for helicopter pilots must be pretty buoyant at the moment.. The minimum requirements seem to be going down and down for the NPAS and HEMS jobs.

A lot of people get hired at NPAS then don't pass the type rating and line training. Their recruitment procedure seems at odds with their internal requirements.

That seems like an expensive merry-go-round.

That depends on your point of view. In a buoyant market for operators the hours requirement would go up as they could be picky. If buoyant for pilots, the hours requirement comes down because there is a high demand. But in any case that particular job is for a VFR only pilot and that's the statutory minima in SPA.HEMS. Other operators still looking for higher hours (eg Babcock at Norwich Babcock Norwich Captain - 2000 hrs)

UK Hems + VFR only... Smart... I guess they think IIMC is not even a possibility...

The VFR reference was to the NPAS (Police) job. The Babcock P1 job requires an ATPL(H) (which presumes the holder has an IR).

You can have an ATPL(H) without an IR, but I don’t know of any HEMS operators who are not mandating an IR in their recruitment as almost all aircraft used in HEMS are IFR certified, and crews are expected to be able to use that equipment if required.

You know, as well as I do, that the EAAA requires an IR.

Is the ATPL(H)/VFR even still a thing? Because under the skills test requirements on the CAA’s site, it states: “Applicants for an ATPL(H) shall pass a skill test in accordance with Appendix 9 to Part FCL to demonstrate the ability to perform as PIC of a multi pilot helicopter under IFR”. (My bold). But you will know the relevant regs far better than me.

Technically yes, according to the UK regulations, but in practice I can’t imagine it is used often - p136 details the ATPL pre-requisites https://www.caa.co.uk/media/kqzpwgxn...1-feb-2022.pdf

I believe that one of the reasons for removing the IR from the ATPL pre-requisites was that in other countries with no offshore industry where they conduct multi-crew crew load lifting in 332s etc there is no IR proficiency requirement, but there is a requirement to hold an ATPL to command multi-crew operations. But yes, it’s an academic point really, HEMS operators will generally require an IR, in the UK at least.

What's the point of a recent OPC - they are (by definition) Operator specific!

"What's the point of a recent OPC"

Know the area, not the customer or operator. Short-term contract, so looking for mercenary international pilots (as opposed to your nanny state, cradle to grave, hotel must have a manicurist).

My guess is that an LPC + recent OPC would suggest a pilot that needs a minimum amount of training to meet standard. Or taking the Australian approach, test to standard and then add training only as required (only slightly /s).

Pretty standard consideration for short term, also weeds out the non-current in case the customer is one of those "50 hours initial if expired two years".

Why not just contract with one of any number of offshore operators already in existence?
