Sky lens just opened up their application window. They are widely considered to be one of the best survey gigs.

I know several people that flew for SDAZ. They were quite happy with the experience. Most of the skydiving pilot jobs are treated as contract work. It is a very good way to get turbine twin time in a short period.



But by all means, read that thread. Call and talk to former pilots. I can't think of any that would not recommend working for SDAZ for a while.



I don't work there, I do fly jumpers. If I lived in the Eloy area, I'd submit an application for PT work there in a second (I have a FT job).

What kind of schedule would a PT pilot have? Do PT pilots have to give an 18-month commitment?

These would be questions for them. I have not had any connection to SDAZ since the late 90's and then only as a jumper.



My current gig is "I fly when I want and when they need me." I have flown 130 hours in about 6 months. Sometimes I fly all weekend, other times I fly three or four loads in a row so the pilot can have a bio-break. My current gig did not require a contract.



Works for me... When not flying jumpers, I jump or fly my Pitts. I am at the DZ/Airport anyway.
