About the role
As a Helicopter Loadmaster you are a key member of the RNZAF, 3 Squadron helicopter crew. Your office is an advanced and agile aircraft designed to operate in a range of extreme environments all over the world.
Your aircraft is capable of carrying passengers and you will manage them and all cargo in the cabin. You will also operate the door guns, rescue hoist and underslung loads.
The types of tasks your crew will be involved in are wide ranging. You’ll work with the pilots to ensure the mission is completed safely and effectively, whether it’s delivering troops into combat or delivering aid within New Zealand or to villages in the South Pacific.
Your squadron supports the NZ Army, our allied militaries as well as the NZ Police and other government agencies.
Tasks are time critical in their execution, so you will be trained to quickly analyse the situation, determine a course of action and communicate it effectively to achieve the mission.
