I was surprised to see that most pipeline jobs require 1500+hrs tt I was looking into it as an alternative to CFI

These days, you canít get a job flying a fín drone without an ATP written and 1500TT. Hiring minimums have gone up dramatically.

That's because they have a big pool of pilots to pick from right now.

Default Multi engine pipeline patrol

Does anyone know of any pipeline patrol companies that use multi-engine aircraft? I have a little over a year of pipeline patrol experience and wouldn't mind continuing if I could get some multi time (or turbine time.)

I know there's got to be at least one because I've heard them on the radio out by Laredo and McAllen Texas.

I saw a King Air doing pipeline control once around Austin!
No idea who owns or operates it, but I was very surprised.
Must be a specialized type of pipeline patrol.

Pipeline Patrol is flying the pipelines (there are hundreds of them, each hundreds to thousands of miles long) to check for damage, leaks, and encroachment. They do that periodically to ensure everything is okay.
