Hi!

I was over 1/2 way through a big post with a lot of info when my computer froze, and I lost it all. I'll post it later.

In the meantime, I would appreciate U Guys posting what U know:
Foreign airlines hiring, websites for contract pilots who fill positions overseas, specific conditions in specific countries/cities/airlines that you know about.

Here's one I found out. Viva Macau is hiring. Macau was a Portuguese controlled island off of China, similar to Hong Kong. A guy there has put $300K in the bank in two years of working there.

C U!

I'm moving to Ireland tomorrow for a flying job. I have also been offered a job with Air Deccan in India. I just used the services of Direct Personnel and Aeroprofessional in my search. I'm going in as an ATR captain for Aer Arran in Ireland. For most these jobs you need a type rating in their aircraft and 400-500 hours in type.

Any problem with work permits for US citizens?

Is the $500 housing, for housing in Japan or the US? Is that just to cover some crashpad expenses or are they expecting you to actually find a place to live on that? -kingaira90

It is for a place to stay in Japan when you are here working. Some guys get apartments near the airport or some just stay in a hotel. If you ended up doing a crash pad type of thing, you would probably have some left over.

Most of the airlines in Asia and Middle East are hiring due to tremendous expansion. As fareview said pick a carrier and Pprune it and you will find a wealth of info for all your questions. I guess it's really beneficial to have at least a 320 type or a 737 type right now.

Hi!

From my experience, ALL the Indian carriers want 500 hours in type, AND you have to have a type rating for Capt.

I believe all the 747 freighters (NOT Cathay) require time in type.
