LightHawk Volunteer Information
To become a member of LightHawk's volunteer pilot corps, licensed pilots are required to have a minimum of 1000 hours of pilot-in-command time, a stringent standard reflecting the challenging conditions that can be associated with environmental missions in remote areas both domestically and internationally. Our volunteer pilots range from retired professionals to avid private pilots to commercial and ex-military pilots. A spirit of volunteerism, professionalism, and a commitment In addition to these experience requirements, all pilots flying for LightHawk must maintain currency with all Federal Aviation requirements and regulations; hold and maintain a current medical certificate; and possess adequate insurance coverage for their aircraft and passengers. Additionally, it is recommended that volunteers live within a geographic region in which we currently operate a program. Pilots in regions without program managers will be asked to fly for us far less often. We currently seek additional volunteers in all of our operating regions.
