Applications for this vacancy are now closed and candidates are currently being reviewed.

Special Operations (SPO), MEP, full time position

Salary: £28,000 - £32,000 depending on experience

Closing Date:

12:00 Thursday 1 February 2018. Applications received after that date will be filed but may not be considered in this recruiting round.

PDG Aviation Services is on the threshold of an exciting new phase in its development – the commencement of in-house fixed-wing Special Operations (SPO) including aerial survey, filming & photography, and other specialised missions in the UK and across Europe. We have acquired two Vulcanair P-68Ts and are now looking for single-crew pilots to join us.

Based at either our Wolverhampton or Cumbernauld bases, pilots will regularly deploy to other locations in order to carry out blocks of work. Normal work may involve long days during the week, as well as weekends and bank holidays. Pilots must live within one hour’s drive of their base.

The work is weather and client dependent so flexibility and an acceptance of an unstable roster are important personal qualities. Other important qualities are the ability to work smoothly with client task specialists and to integrate well with the wider PDG team.

Pilots are required to self-drive to work locations.

In return you will have the opportunity to develop useful and rewarding technical skills, earn the respect of your colleagues and be part of a company which loves the rich variety of Special Operations.

Preferred Experience & Qualifications:

EASA CPL(A), SP-MEP-IR, Class 1 medical suitable for single-pilot commercial operations

700 hours total time of which 50 hours will have been on MEP

Survey experience and time on the P-68 is an advantage but not essential
