Our basic pilot requirements are:

Proficiency in external-load / long-line (up to 150′) operations utilizing vertical terrain reference, with the ability to accurately and efficiently place loads on predetermined spots.
The above requirements are those set forth in several of our government contracts (fire, etc.). Our proximity to the Sierra, and the frequency with which we fly in the mountains demands a thorough knowledge (experience) of mountain flying as well.
For our logging pilot positions, we normally look for 3,000-5,000 hours helicopter PIC (at least 500 hours in type), with considerable experience in production long-line operations.
