Looks like B-More is hiring a TFO.
"at least 1400 hours of helicopter pilot time, the majority of which must have been as pilot in command."
"personal logbooks alone will not be considered adequate to meet this requirement."
Can anybody explain that last part to a CFI who is just logging his time in a Jeppesen book?
I thought at most departments the TFO was an observer position? Those are some pretty high req's to just have a guy ride along spotting. I also think Baltimore would be a tough place to work right now.
Baltimore is hiring, but yes it's a Flight Officer (pilot), not a Tactical Flight Officer (observer) position. Flight Officers are hired externally. TFOs are done internally.
It's a long road, even as a pilot, though. BPD requires you to go through the police academy and do field training, plus about 100 hours of additional flight training, including the factory course for EC120s.
It's a lot of flying once you're there. About 4 hours/day, 4-5 days a week. And it's more interesting flying than a lot of other gigs.
As far as the logbooks, it's nothing magical. Just expect a thorough background check. The place leans military, too. All the pilots are ex-military, so logbook verification is a lot easier for them.
