RELIEF AID BUSH PILOT
ASF-Belgium is hiring pilots to operate Cessna 206 and Cessna 208B under Belgian EASA AOC within the frame of humanitarian air transport services. These services will be provided to NGOs implementing relief aid programmes in remote corners of crisis countries, mainly in Africa.
ASF-Belgium is a small and unique aviation NGO specialised in humanitarian air transport services operating its own Cessna 206 and Cessna 208B aircraft with bush flying capabilities within the niche of the “Local Proximity Airlift”, thus providing NGOs flexible access to remote areas (on demand flights, short distance, unimproved bush airstrip). ASF-Belgium is currently applying for an EASA Air Operator Certificate to be issued by the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority. ASF-Belgium is the only aviation NGO to have developed unique expertise in the assessment of humanitarian air transport needs and participative management of air transport projects, all within a humanitarian conceptual framework and quality system designed for the specific requirements of NGOs.
ASF-Belgium is hiring pilots (work contract or consultant) for periods or “tours of duty” of a minimum of three months to operate Cessna 208B and Cessna 206 aircraft in countries such as DR Congo, South Sudan, Nigeria, Mali, etc. Under exceptional circumstances, shorter periods of mission stay are acceptable. ASF is looking for pilots who can adapt to community life with very limited comfort conditions and who are stress resistant. They will have to execute basic technical tasks, such as 50 FH inspection for C206, for which they will receive the necessary training and limited specifications.
