Request for hire rates

Postby ozloadie » Mon Mar 19 2018, 14:13

A consortium of scientists/medicos are speculating on setting up an org to eradicate pandemics in the Pacific region - idea only in planning stage at the moment.
They're interested in EC 135 / AW109 operating ship to shore and probably an AS 350B for light work.
All fitted with hook, hoist and litters.
Looking for basic wet rates for all three types, thanks if anyone can assist.

Not after commercial in confidence info or secrets.
Just general operating rates.
Any responses soon would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, I'll bite. $5000/hr for the twin, $3000/hr for the single. Minumum 200hrs per year for each machine. Cheaper rates if more hours are flown after the 200hrs.

That gets you two pilots and an engineer on a rotation (living on the boat I assume), VFR work only.

That'd ensure everyone was making money.

Thanks for that, much appreciated.
Got to have a start point somewhere to get a plan to work.
