Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District

Job Announcement: Pilot / Seasonal Pilot
Filing Deadline: Until filled

SEEKING: The District is currently looking to fill a pilot position with the District, either permanent full-time or seasonally.

ABOUT THE DISTRICT
The Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District (BCMVCD) is an independent special district that serves all of Butte County, except the small area served by the Durham Mosquito Abatement District. Additionally, BCMVCD serves Hamilton City and other small areas of Glenn County. In addition to mosquito and mosquito-borne disease surveillance and control, the District also conducts regular surveillance for ticks, yellow jackets, and other nuisance pests and vectors of disease. The mission of BCMVCD is primarily to suppress mosquito-transmitted disease and to also reduce the annoyance levels of mosquitoes and diseases associated with ticks, fleas and other vectors through environmentally compatible control practices and public education.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
This position serves as a pilot for Butte County Mosquito and Vector Control District flight operations, Aviation Wing, and for support duties as assigned by the District’s management or Pilot II.

JOURNEYMAN APPLICANTS
The pilot must possess and maintain an FAA second-class medical certificate, commercial pilot certificate, a valid California Journeyman Pest Control Aircraft Pilot certificate, and valid California Driver’s License with a safe driving record. An A & P mechanic’s license will qualify a person hired as a Pilot I to receive salary at (2) steps above the salary for Pilot I without such license. Experience, training, and evaluations will be reviewed and administered by management or the Pilot II.

APPRENTICE PILOT APPLICANTS
Any apprentice pilot hired must possess an FAA second-class medical certificate, commercial pilot certificate, a valid California Apprentice Pest Control Aircraft Pilot certificate (which must be upgraded to a journeyman certificate within two years of the date hired), and a valid California Driver’s License with a safe driving record. Pilot I apprentice pilots must have at least 500 hours total time, 50 hours of tailwheel experience. Pre-hire flight proficiency evaluation and training will be administered by the Pilot II. Emphasis will be placed on those tasks pertinent to ag operations. An A & P mechanic’s license will qualify a person hired as an apprentice pilot to receive salary at (2) steps above the salary for Pilot I without such license.

COMPENSATION & BENEFITS
Compensation will depend on the applicant’s Journeyman or Apprentice status and whether the applicant is applying for permanent full-time employment or seasonal employment. If you elect to become a full-time member of the team, the District provides a complete benefits package including holidays, vacation, sick leave, retirement, medical, dental, vision, and workers compensation.
