I agree that Bristow has brought in many with very debatable experience, especially in rear crew with paramedics off the street with very little training. Also I am aware that there is a genuine...

The EWTD is a 'nicety' to observe but it is not a show stopper. What matters is our FTL as laid out by the CAA. We do get quite close to that limit if you work 8 shifts per month with a night call...

Exactly. These guys aren't being forced to apply to Bristow. If you don't like what is being offered then look elsewhere. As for living within 30 miles of base. At the interview of course you...

BB; I take it you are not referring to the RAF SARF here. With the exception of a few, SARF individuals haven't deployed to war zones, and do get home each time they finish shift. If they choose...

Getting back to the debate a wee while back; the 'open cockpit' description comes from the CAA (I believe) and prohibits the crews carrying certain medical cases. I may be incorrect in this...

I can see your PoV however, I would be very surprised if it were >40'. They are pretty anal about it, sometimes it can be a bit frustrating. Operationally it is different; if the winchman needs to...
