As a point of curiosity, is there anyone in/on the forum who is currently flying outside the USA? At present I am in country but have worked in at least 40 and have been licensed in 15. I believe it would be helpful, or at least informative, for those who wish to work outside their own countries, to have current info or contacts. Anyone care to chime in? Supremo

G'day Rocky,
I'm in PNG at the moment, one of the positions came through. I'm on tours 28/28. Fleet of 23 machines - B205's, BK 117's, B407's and Mil 8's. Majority seismic and resource support, some ad hoc charter, all around the country. Lot of ext loads and longline. Great you're on the scope. Happy to provide any info re PNG if requested.
Best regards to all.
Steve.

Steve,

Are you with Hevilift? I am dual rated and have been interested in flying in PNG for a while. I'd prefer to fly on the rotor-wing side but would be interested in the fixed wing side as well. Does Hevilift hire co-pilots on the Mil or 205? Any info appreciated.

thanks,

Flying in Cambodia. We have a B2 and a B3+. Lot of scenics this time of year around Angkor Wat but also VIP charter, fotog, film, survey and sling. Good times all over this small country!

G'day mate, No I'm not with Hevilift. I'd suggest you do a recce on a RW site "Bladeslapper" and ask the questions there; you'll get an immediate local response and a better instinct (on the grapevine,I believe pay is an active debate with them at the moment). Expat co-pilots on the Mil's were in evidence back in the mid 90's however, I've only seen whole Russian crews since I've been back; the politics were never smooth then. The 205's depend on the operator and what work is on, some do, others don't have a requirement. I'll say one thing positive. It appears the aviation side here in PNG is just going to get bigger, so I'd throw a line in and see what you get. versatility, reliability and problem solving is the key here and longlining the skill most in demand, 100ft to 200 ft lines common. There is always talk of FW support for maintenance of the fleet and ground support equuipment. You might prod a train of thought if you mention it when applying. (it's a sound concept). Regards Steve
