View Full Version : List of pay to fly companies
10th Feb 2012, 02:19
I noticed that the "list of pay to fly airlines" under the terms of endearment section had been shut down and thought I would rephrase the question with "list of pay to fly companies" instead.
So far I have:
I know there are a couple more. Anyone please feel free to add to this list. So far I have found it difficult finding other companies.
And please no posts whinging about how pay to fly is ruining the industry blah blah.

So if anyone would care to add to add to that list that would be very helpful.
I dont necessarily agree with the schemes either. I'd just like a list of companies if possible?

Roope good luck for your future.
The point is that there are people who went through ths kind of programs and now fly for real company.
At this time, the best deal is Eagle Jet and Lion Air. 500 hours + 4 years of employment and you get paid. Obviously the pay is not that high, but is commensurate with the cost of living there.
I'm not a fan of P2F, but when it'll be time to make a decision this program, unfortunately, might be an option.

I dont think the eaglejet +4 employment deal is that good.
4 years is a real stretch especially in a place like Jakarta.
They have one other program in Turkey I believe but nothing else!
Bit annoying really that there isn't much variety. That's why I put this post up.
One more thing, if I could ask you all very kindly, please try to stay on topic.

Do you like Italy? Check out Windjet. They sell A320 TR + 300 hours. As far as I know, once the deal was TR + 500 + 1 year employment. I don't know if it still is.

Oh, there is another organization in California that seals a deals - yet again with Lion Air. The difference is that you'll be employed for either 1 or 2 years.
I still think EagleJet-Lion Air is the best one if someone wants to invest that money.
What really prevents me from doing this is that I haven't known yet what the pilots that went through P2F are doing now and where they are.
Heard a couple of times that one flyes now for Qatar Airways, others work in for other carriers. Is that really true?
On the other hand, what would experience on SEP and MEP in Africa give me in terms of odds to get employed either on turboprops or jet?
I wish I won the Green Card lottery!:ugh:

I know a couple of pay to fly guys at Lion Air with the Eagle Jet program and they seem to be enjoying it despite being overworked. They didn't say it was amazing or anything but they were pleased that they were getting the hours they needed.
A few foreigners who worked there for a year and half have now left, one went to Cathay and a few others to the Middle East.
That scheme with windjet, is that through an agency or through the airline itself?

As far as I know the program is with WindJet itself. I don't know if you are required to be fluent in italian. You have to check it out.

Cheers guys, really appreciate all your useful comments re p2f.
Does anyone else know of any other agenices other than EJ, Skies Con., and a320?

In line with your original Q, airBaltic last Summer (probably this one too ? ) & Small Planet Airlines to add to the list.

This thread is titled 'list of P2F companies' and yet there is no such list present in the thread, only the same old complaining that we find in virtually all of the threads in this forum. Can you do something about it?
28th Feb 2012, 10:45
You posted as I was 'doing something!'
28th Feb 2012, 12:21
Hmmm... P2F companies???
Well, in Italy there could be Mistral Air (737 CL), WindJet (A320), Blue Panorama (often called Blue Banana) and if I am not wrong, Air Italy as well.
Now, things may change as Alitalia is going to "take" WindJet and Blue Panorama.
Oh, Air Dolomiti has to be added too.

Add Nouvelair (Tunesia) through Brookfield :ugh:

OK - some ground rules.
If thread drift happens the posts will be deleted; repeated attempts will result in a ban.:=
