Hughes500, I suspect you’re likely referring to a rather different entity with a not dissimilar name?

I’m sure Helicentre.com, based at Liverpool & Manchester, would be most grateful if you could clear that up!

I’ll explain the history to you next time I see you

Draken Europe are looking urgently for a AW139 SAR Captain with EASA licence for a fixed term contract until Oct 22 in Curacao if anyone wants a nice summer in the Caribbean.

NPAS looking for pilots down south. I see they've removed the IR requirement.

Has anybody heard back from THC "The Helicopter Company" Saudi Arabia about the H125 pilot position? I mean after applying for the job via LinkedIn, which I did 5 weeks ago.

Greetings

Do NPAS pilots have to be under 60? The advert and job spec don't mention that at all.

As one of many who had to leave because he reached that age. Yes.

• Minimum of a Commercial Pilot’s Licence (Helicopter) with RT Licence and Class 1 Medical (unrestricted)
I think the ‘unrestricted’ requirement here is the bit that excludes we older knackers.

Thanks handysnaks - I thought it was probably the case - very frustrating since we don't suddenly become incapable of doing the job safely just because the clock ticks past 60.

Yes, it's classed as Public Transport. To be honest, NPAS not withstanding, I was quite happy to retire at 60.

Although I enjoyed the work on them, I can’t say I miss the 12 hour night shifts! Although, who knows what the future holds.

I actually do miss the night shifts - I'm a bit weird like that. Much of the best work was done after 3am in your patch, Handy - really enjoyed the buzz of going from cold to seeing the scrotes getting their collars felt within 20 minutes of the call. Then there would be the out-of-hours calls from non-24-hour forces - even D&C on one occasion, although that was called off before launch.

Having said all that, I can recommend getting a job in whatever they call the utility area these post-EASA days to ease you into retirement. Routinely managing over 4.5 hours a day, frequently more, with 80%+ at around 30-100' agl - what's not to like? I was ready to leave flying at 65 though - the eyesight, although up to the required standard, was never going to match that of the rest of the crew, and being a night-owl I never really enjoyed the getting-up-in-the-morning-and-driving-to-work thing.

Yes, it was fun at times, but that fun rapidly disappeared as NPAS became established.

MI-26 Longline Pilot

I have a bit of an odd ask…are there any pilots out there with experience and the skill sets to conduct longline operations with an MI-26? I may have a contract position in the coming months.

Hello Mr. or Mrs. Assisgrass- not a Mi-26 pilot but we specialize in Russian helicopters. I imagine we can find your needed candidates and/or hardware for Mi-26 projects. Not our main aircraft (that would be Mi-17s along with Hind work) but 30 years in Russian aviation means we have good candidates (and not just Russian passports, of course). We are at vtsc.net and my email is [email protected] the same domain.

EC-145 Offshore Pilot Position

We may have need for an offshore qualified EC-145 pilot/instructor. This would initially commence as a contract position (90-120 days during summer of 2022) but depending on outcomes, could easily change into a full-time position. 90-120 day contract position would initially involve Night MEDEVAC standby. Russian language skills would be an asset but not essential. Any interested candidates please contact me at [email protected] and include CV. Additional details would be forthcoming to those deemed as suitable candidates.

Pawan Hans is seeking pilots with experience on the aircraft mentioned. I can not post linked due to my account has less than 10 posts. You can find more information on their website under the careers section.
