D11SR Needs a Few Good Pilots and Planes!

Air Station LA and Sector San Diego have both expressed a desire to expand the AuxAir program in their AOR. We need two more aircraft in Air Station LA's AOR and one or two in Sector San Diego. The good news is that the onerous TBO rules have been thrown out and replaced with more reasonable ones. Basically aircraft facilities must have 100 hour inspections and an oil analysis. Approved progressive maintenance programs are also permitted. As for pilots, the more qualified the better. While our Operations Manual allows for Private Pilots to be active in AuxAir, we're looking for and will give priority to pilots with advanced ratings such as Instrument, Commercial, CFI, CFII and ATP. If you are interested please contact Eugene Korney, DSO-AV at (310) 614-6739 or pirep47@yahoo.com.
