As you can see, I am a thousand hour pilot. Although my flight time is low, I have had to learn fast. My flying experience has been in the highlands of Papua New Guinea. Flying conditions here were often very treacherous and required skillful caution.
We operated in all kinds of airfields from ILS guided international airports, to cliff top little strips at 7000ft. The fleet of Twin Otters ranged from not even having a heading bug, to having full synthetic vision with the Garmin 600.
Simply put, the range of flying I was exposed to means that the 1000 hrs I do have, will serve you well...
Along with this, I find that when things do go wrong up there, I am the calm, logical and level headed guy you want sat next to you in times like these...
