Hi guys!

Hope you are doing well. I'm looking for IFR Twin Piston PILOT

Who are we looking for?
This is not a job, it’s an adventure. You need to have IFR rating, and twin piston licence issued by EASA with a solid flying experience. Previous military experience really appreciated.
The plane crew is composed by the plane’s pilot (Fabien), his girlfriend who advise on social media marketing, and a photographer/video maker.
You will be able to log for all IFR flights when you’ll be PIC, and will share VFR flights with Fabien.
There is no remuneration for this opportunity, but all transportation are covered by the plane operator.
You need to be easy going, have a curious appetite for travelling, and able to adapt effortlessly to change of plans.
Finally, you’ll need to be available from OCTOBER 2019 for up to 6 to 9 months and have the ability to obtain visas for all the countries we’ll be visiting (currently: Australia, New-Zealand, Indonesia, South-East Asia, Burma, India, Sri-Lanka, Oman, Israel, Lebanon, Turkey, and all EU countries).

What is the #FORTHISFORTHAT project?
The project consists of flying a P.68 Observer from Australia to London following backpackers’ routes and connecting with people along the way. We are expecting to cover 40’000km flying the plane.
The plane is owned and operated by www.skypacking.social and is currently being specially equipped for this very special adventure in Sydney, Australia.
The main pilot of the plane is Fabien, a French entrepreneur who will be presenting the related YouTube show. Travelling low by light plane will allow for amazing images to be shot and will result in the production of a weekly vlog show on youtube.com/forthisforthat that will focus on exploring the motivation behind individuals decisions in life.
Why do you this for, why do you that for?
The plane does not have a fixed itinerary but instead, decisions will be made based on people meet during the journey, suggestions from locals and followers/subscribers, and of course the weather.

How to apply?
Send your CV to info@skypacking.social with ‘GUEST PILOT 2019’ and include links to your social media accounts.

Asking a professional aviator to provide services without pay is generally looked at askance. Food and travel accommodations are not viewed as pay. But I assume you'll find many takers for your offer.

I'm not sure how I stumbled across this at such a late date but regardless of looking for someone to act as PIC for Instrument operations only, operating in some of the most demanding environments outside of the Arctic and Antarctic, giving up command authority in VFR to some guy named named Fabien traveling with his girlfriend (now what could possibly go wrong?) in a questionable aircraft with the cruse speed of a Mooney (an older Mooney mind you) for nine months?

Thank you, not only no but hell no!

Not that the Coviditis didn't likely snuff this thing in the early stages if a falling out among the thieves or between Fabien and the woman hadn't already killed it...
