Tropic Air and Maya Island Air in Belize

As you already know from time to time I run into lowtimer jobs that are out of Africa. This time it is Belize in Central America.
There are two small companies that seemingly hire low-time pilots. Tropic Air (based on La Isla Bonita) and Maya Island Air. Tropic flying Caravans and smaller Cessna's (172's and 207's which are a stretched version of the 206). Maya using Caravans, BN Islanders, G7 Airvan and Cessna 182.
From what I've found entry requirements are 250 TT. Although the thing in Belize is a bit tricky: "If you go there with 250 hours you will need to fly P2 for 500 hours before you get this as Civil Aviation only counts half your P2 time toward your total 500 before you can fly a 172 as a Captain. Then fly that until you get a shot at the Caravan as Captain."
The two websites don't give you much info on this. What I dug out is that Chief Pilot for Tropic is Mike Kuhn. His portrait appeaered in The San Pedro Sun (available online here: http://sanpedrosun.net/old/00-104.html).

Presently there are no hirings, but it is good to put these companies on your list.
