DHC6 Rated and Non Type Rated Pilots British Atlantic Survey UK and Antartica

The British Atlantic Survey is currently looking for a Line Pilot to support the British Antarctic Survey's (BAS) ambitious and challenging programme of science. To support the Antarctic science, BAS operates a fleet of five aircraft, specially adapted for flying in extreme Antarctic climate. The BAS aircraft consist of four De Havilland Canada Twin Otters and one De Havilland Canada Dash-7 equipped with modifications to allow them to carry out airborne science surveys. Between them they undertake a wide variety of transport and science missions.

You will expected to spend the whole of the Antarctic season from beginning of October to the end of March ferrying the aircraft to or from Antarctic or on duty in Antarctica. As a resilient pilot, you will be spending a considerate amount of time camping in sub-zero temperatures in remote areas often with one other person and the potential of being stuck for a number of days. It is essential for you to be self-reliant - relying on your experience, training, common sense and often a sense of humour to get you through the most remote environments.

Antarctica is the coldest and most isolated continent in the world. It’s also the most exhilarating, providing a unique and spectacular setting for our vital scientific research. By joining the Air Unit team responsible for air operations, you could play a crucial role in our success.

  • Fluent in written and spoken English language - Essential
