I was looking at the Border Patrol web page in the careers section. They require P-3 applicants to have experience in the P-3 or the L-188. Does anybody know who is flying an L-188 in the civilian world?

No US L-188's

Reeves parked their last L-188 a couple years ago. I do not know of any US L-188 operators since Zipper took a nose dive. There is still some operators in Europe

So is this then an ex-Navy job due to the fact that a civie can't get P-3/L-188 time anymore?

Reeves *is* out of business but their pilots are not. They're still out there (some are at Polar).

And I bet there are lots of Zantop guys who might be interested in a govt retirement....

Good luck.

Atlantic Airlines of the UK is using a few Electras to haul freight. Modified to 2-person cockpit if memory serves me right.

A few years ago there was an operator in Norway that was running them.
