Fire Season Crewies

Postby bluey000 » Sat Jun 15 2013, 06:22

G'day All,

I was hoping I might be able to get some info on who to contact in relation to fire season work. I understand we are in winter however i thought I might start looking early.
Im Currently a Mil Crewy with around 1300hrs experience on various aircraft and am looking for something casual over the summer months.

Regards and Fly Safe

May I suggest Sydney might be a happy hunting ground.

1) National Parks and Wildlife Service,
2) Kareela aviation (think they are still around but was a fair few years ago when I worked opposite them), and
3) Heli-Aust (if they were taken over after their recent 'financial difficulties').

Some more recently employed crewies around the area may care to shine a light on some opportunities for you to look into.

Is it just summer casual work you're after? If you're close to a Westpac Lifesaver base that could be another outlet to look into.

Hi Blue,
You may like to also try one of the larger operators around Sydney being United Aero at Camden, they operate quite a few mediums over the season. Also try McDermotts in Qld. With your quals I wouldn't imagine you should have much trouble.
Good luck :)
