A friend of mine had just interviewed there last week and was told that he would have to move to within 100 miles of LFT otherwise they wouldn't offer him the position. He was asking for a 14/14 schedule too. Just FYI...

They are pressuring him to move, but probably not offering to relieve the pressure with an offer of relocation allowance.

Phi does offer a relocation package. The requirement is within 500 miles and they'll either reimburse your move or you can use their moving company. Either way they reimburse gas mileage and a hotel room depending on how far you're moving from. I doubt they changed the dist for your friend. I think there's some exageration or miscommunication there. The heliports are streched across almost 700 miles along the coast with lafayette in the middle. They may require one to move now for light ships because they aren't desperate for pilots but if so then it's new. A friend of mine just got hired last month living in wa state.

PHI is hiring heavy on the Air Medical side, with few openings in the Gulf. They are actually gearing up for Saudi EMS positions as well.

Was this for a light, medium, or heavy position? It seems like they are actively pursuing medium and heavy guys. Don't know why they would want to make it hard on someone they need.

That's good news for a new guy like me, especially since my eventual goal is to make a career of flying in the GOM.


Wow, why would you want a career in GOM? Unless you grew up in the south, yick! :P

Aside from the base around LFT, does PHI have any other base locations one can eventually laterally transfer to for their off-shore gigs?

  • Interests:Fixed Wing and Helo trucker. I enjoy being a chopper jockey, and trying to figure the world, people and belief systems out. I'm not very good at it, so it keeps me real busy. I scribble, blog, run a website, (www.writersharbor.org) run rental houses, ride motorbikes, and read as much as I can. I went solo 44 years ago, and I like to say I'm gonna get me a real job one day. When I grow up. ("but not just yet, Lord, not just yet")
    For my aviation scribbles see www.chopperstories.com.... enjoy!

Because you can live where you want and flying is flying, even if it's flat and featureless terrain.


Just a pilot (retired, so I have a LOT of time)...

Is anyone commuting internationally for the GOM? 14/14 seems like it would be possible.
