Flight Survey Operators

#1 Post by awitzke » Fri Mar 27, 2015 1:24 pm

Been doing a bit of digging on a few survey operators. Has anyone ever worked for Eon Geosciences, Goldak Airborne Surveys or Airborne Sensing in Toronto?. They all operate PA31/C172/C206/PA31T aircraft. What can you tell me about these and other similar companies? Given the various locations of these operators, it's hard to show up in person and try to get a job. Have you seen them hire from out of town before? For QC operators, what are the chances of getting a job if you aren't fluent in French?

Sander Geophysics out of Ottawa is another company that does surveying. Good company to work for if you don't mind 9 week tours.

CGG in Ottawa. They are in the shell aerocentre, and someone is around most weekdays.

Aries Aviation in Calgary.

Goldak is a decent company. Don't know about eon or airborne sensing.

Going to resurrect this old thread by asking if anyone knows which of these, or any, survey companies hire wet CPL's. Planning a bit of a road trip.

Thanks!

Dont think Goldak will. They seem to have hour requirements for each of their clients that differ.
