Default Aerial Survey Pilot

Hi guys,

Just wounder if anyone know any aerial Survey companies that are looking for pilots in a cessna 172. I have heard that you can build flight time very fast and the pay is much better than Regionals.

Thank you

I'm sure you have already looked here, but I've occasionally seen listings on:

www.flitejobs.com
www.findapilot.com

and if you are eligible for government employment there are some survey/dept of wildlife/dod survey type jobs occasionally listed on:

www.usajobs.com

Good luck

I have been looking at a few companies, but most don't fly 172s. I have a question to add to the thread though. Does anyone know what kind of salary I should put for desired? What would be reasonable for an aerial survey job?

Would be grateful if you could share some info about the companies you are aware about. It doesn't need to be a cessna 172. I can fly other airplanes as well.

Aerial survay pilots make good money. I have a good friend that is doing it right now. He makes about 2200 dollars a month. The company pay for hotel and car rental and everything. They also give him money for food per day, around 22 dollars.
The sad part is that his company is not hiring at the moment .

Good Luck

Hi,

I can fly other airplanes as well. I would love to FLY A TWIN OTTER (DHC-6). If you can find me one I will leave my current job tomorrow to fly that airplane.


Thank you,

Default Aerial Mapping

I am currently employed by one of these aerial mapping companies. Yes we do build time quickly. We fly 7 days a week as long as the weather is good if we are doing photo missions. If we are ferrying from one location to the next we are allowed to go ifr. Typical pay is better than your first year at a regional, but do realize when the wheels stop your day is not over.... paper work to fill out, reports to send, hard drives to ship off. So what was only suppose to be a 9-4 day just turned into a 9-530 day, and as the days get longer so does our availble collection window. But the big thing is I dont have a apartment, car, or other misc living expense bills so we save alot of money in that respect. As to getting a job with these companies most require 500 tt, but the big thing (as we all know in the aviation industry) is who you know. I got on with my current company through a friend who works here and he got on through a friend that worked here. There is also a few of our pilots who have got on by meeting us while working line service at a aiport we based out of while working an area and kept in touch. I would like to pass on what my friend did for me and help you out with my company but I cant cause we are fully staffed and have a couple of relief pilots who are next in line to take over. IF you have any other question feel free to send me a note and I will try to help you out in anyway possible. So feel free to ask more questions.

Oh yah one thing I forgot to add.... Be ready for 9 months on the road living out of hotels or maybe if you are lucky enough to be shooting near your home town you might get to stay at home. So be prepared for no life and continental breakfast for the next 10 months of your life.... yes there are negatives to our job.
