(floatjockey01 on PPRUNE)
I did almost 7 years in Maldives (had a break in between) and worked for both companies. Some of the best flying I have ever done, water conditions huge at times but awessome scenery. The comeraderie is fantastic and its because of this....
Most days awake at 4, airborne 6am. land about 530-6pm with average of 12-15 landings a day. The most I did was 22. By the end of the day, ya trashed but always manage to have a cleansing refreshings. Hard work, you lose the beauty of the place after about 3 months....its a sweatshop.
To apply for MAT, email CP at Madivian Air Taxi AND CP at Kenn Borek Air
To apply for TMA, email CP at Trans Maldivian Airways
Its hard to get a slot as f/o with either company these days as more and more Maldivians are getting their licences so the 2 companies are nationally obligated to hire them. Even if you had a DHC-6 Command endorsment/PPC, they prob wouldnt look at you as you wouldnt have enough float time.
Give it a try though....if you get in, you would love it....for the first few months anyway!!!
