I’ve landed a job as an S92 Copilot for Bristow!
In May 2022 I joined Bristow Helicopters in Aberdeen where I now fly oil and gas workers to platforms in the North Sea.
The S92 is operated by two pilots and has space for 19 passengers. It has a maximum take off weight of 12 tonnes and cruises at around 135 kts. Most of the places we fly to are between 80 and 120 nautical miles offshore and due to the aircraft being fitted with a comprehensive deicing system we are able to fly in the majority of weather conditions.
I feel really fortunate to be paid to do what I love – flying! You can follow my semi-regular updates on Instagram.
