...for a low time (3000tt) pt 121 turboprop captain?

I know, I know get in line. Looking for a change of pace in the midst of stagnation. Sick of getting raked over the coals on reserve, with no end in sight.

overseas stuff

There is still movement in the ME, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, KSA, but you have to be willing to put up with a whole other kind of Bull &hit from the locals, un-organised, bend the rules kind a stuff, unless you get on with a really established operation that was set up by Good expats, who got their foot in the door and stayed. M ost of those are word of mouth.

Good Luck

There are a number of contract atr/q400/fokker/casa-212 prop jobs in Asia and africa on job boards and/or contract agencies.

Precision Air in Dar-es-salaam is looking for ATR guys.

Yes they are. A friend of mine just started class there as an f/o. He is a former MD11 Captain.
Very competitive out there even with time in type.

Hi!

Things in East Africa seem to be slowly picking up. A couple of places are adding cargo aircraft in UAE.

IMF recently reported they are expecting growth of 4+% GDP in 2010 for Africa.
Ethiopian are increasing their MD11 fleet from one to three. They will be interviewing soon for the second aircraft. You have to have previous experience on the MD11.

Hi!

-8 capts in Tanzaniz/Kenya make $8K-$20K per month. Normal is $10-$14K per month. LOTS of -8s in those areas and S. Sudan. Need a LOT of guys...combined with Kenya Airways is overstretched, so they are trying to hire all the turboprop guys they can from Wilson, plus will HAVE to hire foreignors SOON!

Asia/ME cargo was back to normal as of about Jan. Pax picking up. Cargo in East/West Africa big improvement. All over Africa big growth and airport expansions all over the place. Here in Lome 300K pax per year. Expanding to 1.5M per year. New terminal, Emirates coming in soon, ASky making it their hub city.

Cliff - just curious who you say is paying 10-14k/month in East Africa to fly a DHC-8. I know many of the operators who fly the DHC-8 there, and if you're making HALF of that you're lucky. AND you only get paid when you are working (ie no pay off months).

Hi!

I know a guy who used to fly there. He said, as a Caravan capt, his LOWEST pay ever was over $70K per year.

It IS true that they fly a lot. He had a buddy that flew for 450? days in a row. In East Africa, the pay and schedules /days off don't change with seniority. Everybody is paid well for working the same amount, in most of the organizations.
