Even more pilots needed....

Was on the phone today with a buddy who works for Great Slave Helicopters. They are looking for pilots now too and sounds like they'll take folks with 200-500 hours of heli time in whatever. Once again go there in person... ready to work.

 

This is one of Canada's premier companies to work for. Lots of work to be had with them so long as you don't mind Arctic weather, and being based in towns you'll never ever be able to pronounce.

Does any one know of approx salary figures? What kind of jobs do they offer, year around employment or some seasonal contracts?

 

Nothing specific on their website...

Mostly seasonal from what I understand, and no exact figures on the pay but it's on the high end of the VFR scale. You'll get good with a line fast working with GSH... lots of seismic work. My buddy joined them with about 200 hours. He spent the summer darting polar bears and bird towing, then runing his own base in Manitoba. I'd lie if I said I wasn't jealous.

Thanks West Coaster. Sounds like a good place to work.

I flew with GSHL last season, and I am about to depart NZ for another go up there.

I had a great time and gained some valuable experience. From all I saw they seem a very good company.

You Canadians have an awesome country, and if I only do one more season up there, I will never forget it.

:D

Hughesy,

can you address the requirements for non-Canadians...do they need work permits and a conversion on thier license? does GSHL assist with getting permits and conversions?

thx

Does anyone know what it takes to get a Canadian work permit or work visa?

 

You must convert your license. Challenging written and check ride from what I understand. Then the company has to show a lack of qualified local personel. Then they can hire you. I'm not sure to what extent they have to "show a lack of qualified local personel", but from what I've been told if you covert your license you are in.

 

If you are serious, call a Canadian school.
