Expressions of interest for B1900 pilots based in Cairns

Expressions of interest for B1900 pilots based in Cairns.

Cairns is a relaxed, tropical city, full of coconut palms and curlews (a quirky, long-legged bird you’ll meet when you get here). Cairns is the hub for destinations like the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest and the Outback.  It’s a great place to live if you want a more natural life, if you like to hike, or if you’d like to see your kids out riding bikes or jumping in creeks after school. Cairns is also a great place to live if you’d like to make an impact in your community or career. If you need a break from flying over the  Great Barrier Reef , you can fly from Cairns International direct to the snowfields in Japan in under 8 hours.

East Air, established in 2009, is an Aircraft operator in Cairns. We operate a range of aircraft types including Multi Engine Piston, Single, Multi-Engine Turbine and Multi Crew  aircraft. We are a family owned business and have always understood and championed a culture of family first and work second. East Air has a broad client base, resulting in a broad range of interesting flying. Our pilot roster is innovative and is designed to ensure fairness and flexibility for our crews.

If you are looking for a flying position that also provides you with the lifestyle that you are seeking, then East Air can provide that position for you.

If flying full-time or only two or three days a week is what you want to do so you can spend the rest of the week with family, studying, fishing or exploring Far North Queensland, then East Air can provide you that position.

 Obviously you will need some minimum requirements
