Air Serv International puts out call for pilots
Air Serv International is looking for a few good pilots.
The not-for-profit humanitarian aviation organization currently has overseas openings for experienced pilots.
Be it war, floods, famine, epidemics or any other humanitarian crisis, an Air Serv plane is usually there providing vital support to relief operations. From officials of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, to medical staff from Doctors without Borders, to Red Cross workers, to celebrities bringing attention to a cause or U.S. congressional staff on fact-finding missions, Air Serv has been transporting them in and out of the world’s “no-go” zones for the past 24 years.
Working with the United Nations and the world’s leading relief agencies, Air Serv International assures rapid response, emergency relief, medical and security evacuations and long-term rehabilitation and development assistance. From its headquarters in Virginia, the organization oversees programs in Mozambique, Chad, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Sudan, Iraq and Afghanistan, with new destinations limited only by the laws of chance and likelihood of humanitarian need.
The organization is looking for single-engine pilots who have commercial pilot certificates (ATP preferred), instrument rating and at least 1,500 hours PIC, as well as multi-engine pilots with similar ratings who have logged 1,800 hours PIC, including 500 hours multi PIC and 100 hours turbine.
Air Serv International offers salaries comparable to other not-for-profit organizations, a benefits package that includes housing, per diem, retirement, health, life and disability insurance, vacation and holidays. According to officials with the organization, that totals almost $100,000 a year.
