Hi All,

Is it possilble to fly EMS without an Instrument Rating?
Also would 100 hrs twin be enough if you had thousands of hrs turbine single?

Yes in many companies, but the UK may be a little different.

A lot of ads seem to want x amount of twin time, but the whole twin thing is a bit of a toss really. I would take a high time single engine pilot, with a good cross section of experience, over someone who had relatively low hours but most of it in a twin. Flying a twin is just more systems and procedures, and if your not a complete muppet it is just a matter of learning them.

Ask the EMS operators what they require... while shouting them a beer at the pub of course... Wink

I'm looking for this route, the HEMS in the UK don't fly at night or over seas, so you would think IR is not needed.
I hear it is the cream of flying and as such they can be pickly because of landing in tight spots.

I was told 2-3000 hours and IR minium.
To fly the London HEMS you need 2500 hours flying an HEMS.

One day Smile
