You must be a current LightHawk volunteer pilot, have 25 hours in the make/model, and have an instrument rating. Note that these are minimums for insurance purposes. LightHawk generally seeks pilots with significantly greater time and similar flight profile experience to fly these aircraft. See Latin America experience guidelines ("Can I fly for LightHawk in Latin America?") below. LightHawk flights typically are conducted in VFR conditions, as they are intended to provide an aerial view for passengers, though PIC decisions to maintain a safe flight environment may dictate IFR flight in some circumstances.
