    Thanks for the posting. Its a little far from me but I'm doing some photowork down here and its challenging for sure. Any info on pay? I must also add thats a pretty good schedule, are you home often or is travel all over the West Coast? I also wanted say its good to see the minimums drop for these gigs, a year ago it probably would've been 1000-1200 hours easy...

    Not a re-post. We are looking into hiring more pilots within the next few months.

    Travel is all over, pilots are flown home for the 6 days off. We look forward to reviewing resumes from qualified applicants and will post more info as hiring progresses.

    Is this a seasonal position or is it year round photography?

    Aperture is a good company. I encourage anyone interested and qualified to apply.

    Why does a first class medical reduce insurance?

    I'm not sure if its the same company, but I believe we have a member who works here (or at least somewhere similar). If I talk to him I'll see if I can get him to come on and elaborate a bit.

    Nevermind, turns out about half the people on here work for that company :p

    The thing is, if you are under 35, there really is no difference between a 2nd and 1st. (Aside from the AME charging more for the same thing).
