Helicopter Pilot Employment in China

Postby skidsmarks » Sun May 22 2016, 17:14

Could someone please provide information on helicopter pilot employment in China.

Are there many opportunities for non Chinese helicopter pilots in China at present?

Who are the operators to contact?

Any information around the conversion process, pilot salaries and any other relevant topics greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

move along...nothing to see here. You wanna work without work Visa, without validation, without permits, without license, without authority to fly, without clearance, without any proper maintenance; then China is right for You pop; otherwise please move along :shock:

rotors99, is that you guessing or do you have some experience of working in China? Not poking a stick, just genuinely curious.

I have spent a little bit of time in China and found they can be very particular in some areas or not particular at all. There seems to be precious little in between. My good mate flies in there from HK all the time and has zero trust for the ground handling chappies, and comments that the majority of FW pilots wouldn't have a royal clue what to do if their FD systems failed. Good robots, poor pilots.

Maybe they will realise they have a problem and suddenly there will be a great opportunity for all the (apparently) about to be laid off offshore pilots???

Hoy Muppet....there may well be some serious professional operators there in China???? But....I don't know of any. Yep I have a few Mates flying there right now & I also was gonna fly there till I saw the home made spray rig bodgely strapped to the skids. inspections are miraculously done overnight without an Engineer in attendance, simply amazing :shock: The Money is great but, YIKES at what risk Oc:=

Thanks rotors99, appreciate the comments. They certainly do have some home-design type engineering methods. Shame in some ways, cos there could be good opportunity for work over there - some amazing countryside and the food is just to die for.... And from an EMS perspective, they have a different approach to road rules, so would be plenty of work around...
