A restricted FI may only instruct towards a PPL but not a CPL until he/she has 500 hours total and given 200 hours of instruction.

The restricted bit when you are talking job adverts is the above. Not able to send first solo. The CPL bit is a privilege that you get, not a restriction that you lose.

I remember a flight school owner saying "the thing is, instructing isn't a proper job", he expected his FIs to be there all day and only get paid when the engine starts. Then he drove away in one of his multiple high-end cars.
Welcome to everyday in The States for a pilot under 1,000 hours.

a restricted FI also needs to be supervised by an unrestricted FI until a certain amount of instructing hours and solo sign offs....

My ATPL(H) is restricted to 'Day only' due to not having sufficient night hours on helicopters to make it unrestricted. I know of one other pilot who has just gained a command on a large helicopter with the same restriction.

Sorry, should have said this in reply to Bravo73, post number 29

Nothing dodgy at all. Proof of recent Type simulator and LPC is a requirement of the aviation authority for the issuance of a license validation. This is a short term contract and consequently pays out at top rates. Clear details will be made available to candidates who tick the boxes. Up to 12 hours of FFS training will be made available to candidates that seem suitable but do not have recent simulator time. If a pilot doesn’t like using a Gmail address, they needn’t reply.

As reference or testimonial, I can provide the names and contacts of numerous pilots who have worked for me in the past.

This is a legitimate post and poster.

I inquired, and the poster worked at the same offshore heli company as me for many years. This isn't fishy, and I'm not sure what the issue with the email is; it worked fine for me.

Cheers.

I think noone questions the functionality of the gmail address. the we're insinuating that a person hiring Pilots professionally would have a company, complete with Internet Domain and company email.

I have just checked the job specific, canít see anything about age maximum? Having just been forced to retire at 65 after 45 years in aviation and 18,000 helicopter flying hours, it would be nice to still smell Avtur in the morning!

Out of interest, why the preference for non medical Technical Crew Members? Would it not be easier/more practical to train your HEMS Paramedics/CCP's as TCM's? This would allow significantly more payload for missions. Not such an issue on the 169, but certainly beneficial if deployed on a 902. This is the crewing model used in the majority of UK HEMS units and seems to work well.
