Which maintenance course ?

Postby skiesrblue » Mon Mar 2 2015, 20:01

Hi All

Ok so the big three are not just taking B1.3 guys anymore...
Seems like you need a lot more to get a look in.
So which maintenance course should an entire savings account go towards ?
AW139 or S76 / S92 with Sikorsky ?

Cheers

Depends on where you want to work.

EMS contracts in NSW, VIC and QLD are moving towards an all AW139 fleet.

For 'the big three', a couple operators have a handful of 139's servicing short range offshore installations from a couple bases in WA on a touring basis. Probably not a large growth area.

S92 likely positioned for continued growth with some 8 machines or thereabouts in country.

If you want to work somewhere near a populated area in the years to come I would've thought the AW139 ticket would be the one to have.
The 139 appears to be the money ticket in the industry, the beauty of it is that you may not necessarily be stuck in Port Headland or some other hole when you go to work on them as they are spreading all over the place especially in the EMS role. The others listed primarily seem to operate in the Oil and Gas sector.
