Fly for Us

 

By giving policy makers, conservationists, scientists, media representatives, community leaders and activists, a bird’s eye view of our portion of the planet, The Bateleurs contributes greatly to its protection. Our membership is comprised mostly of volunteer pilots as well as ground member volunteers, who are willing to assist with a number of non-flying activities. Clearly, we cannot function at all without a necessary squadron of volunteer licensed pilots.

Requirements for volunteer pilots

If you would like to become a member of the volunteer pilot corps, in order to fly missions on behalf of The Bateleurs, the following minimum requirements must be satisfied:

  • Fixed Wing, Helicopter and LSA pilots must have logged at least 400 hours of flying time
  • Weight Shift Microlight pilots must have logged at least 120 hours of flying time
  • All pilots must own or, have the use of a suitable aircraft
  • Pilots must complete and return a Volunteer Pilot Agreement, form available below

Please remember that it may take some time before you are asked to fly a mission as these depend on demand and locality.

How to join as a volunteer pilot

We may in respect of each approved flight and subject to the availability of funds, make an ex gratia payment in respect of the aviation fuel costs incurred, and only upon receipt of aviation fuel costs incurred.

Please note that The Bateleurs is under no obligation to contribute in any way to the aviation fuel or other costs incurred in respect of flights approved by The Bateleurs.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer pilot, kindly complete the form below with all the required documentation.
