Road trip for employment HELP WANTED

Postby nicklasunderbjerg » Mon Apr 17 2017, 06:53

Hi fellow pilots!

I'm a foreign, danish, low hour pilot, who just got my EASA license converted to CASA. Now that I'm done, my plan is to travel along the east coast from Brisbane to Adelaide and drop off my resume and have a chat with every charter operator I can get to. But I'm struggling to find a list or info about which operators there are on my route. In that case, i was hoping that some of you guys maybe would be helpful with info and locations for the operators, that were worth stopping by? Even though they're not currently looking for an employee, all info would be appreciated!

Total: 210 hours
Rated: r22, r44, b206
IR(H)

Thanks
Best regards
Nicklas

There used to be a page somewhere on this site that had a list of all the operators around the country.
Can it be assumed you have the right to work in Australia?

I'll try search for list, thanks

Oh forgot that.

Yes, all documents are sorted. The only thing I need is the job :)

Euro heli IR? Yikes. Billund is relatively cheaper with IFR 206, but still. Not best job market, as you know.

Shall we assume you are on Working Holiday visa? If other full-time long term status then great. Otherwise it is limiting more than you may think.

Good job on converting, btw.

Sorry to break the news, but with mainly 22 time, as newcomer and those hours total, you may not achieve desired outcome.
More R44 hours, full residence (or similar) - that matters.

The 206 rating moved over won't have much use South of 500-1000hrs depending on variety of factors and employers. It does save money for subsequent turbine types, if you end up returning with more hours or ask for PNG jobs. I know of one experienced guy who would fancy PNG but isn't bothered spending on CASA or NZ CAA conversion.

Greater concentration of low time employment opportunities is in Victoria. Some regional NT, WA, Qld or NSW operators, but less without sought after background and skills for mustering.
Rock etc scenics have own graduates on 44 or 206.

We can go for a beer in Fort. Valley before you leave Brisvegas, if you fancy.
