Nope, not anymore due to union negotiation i've been said, nowadays its U$2800 but i didn't mention that since only nationals are hired with low time (Below 1000 Hours), when you move up from the 1000 hours you get the payrise...

Thanks for the clarification leondefierro.
So basically if you are local with less than 1000 hrs starting salary is 2800 USD and with more than 1000 hrs is 3600 USD?

I applied online and got the message my application was "accepted". I didn't have all the documents they requested though, such as certificate of English or Spanish proficiency.

Has anybody heard recently from the company, one way or another?

To me, it's not funny that no one can get a job in Mexico due to nationality requirements and when a company is gone in bankruptcy this taco pilots claims for jobs everywhere else. A non written reciprocity law should be applied to Mexican pilots, they shouldn't be admitted anywhere out of Mexico.

Take it easy N-1. This is a helping forum for collegues. I understand your point, but the only way to open the Mexican maket is by showing them that they are not different to us. I donīt mind If a mexican pilot is comming to my country to work, as long they have the required level and do better than I in the test.

Close makets make bad proffesional, Iīm sure just a few mexican pilots give the standard worldwide.For my the real problems is, Do Airlines headquarters have a clue on Aviation? Donīt ask about politicians..

I wouldn't count on seeing any openness from Mexico, ever. Mexico plays by its own rules.

Leon,

Yeah. Didn't LAN post an ad on El Mercurio a few months ago stating that they wouls consider pilots with only a private license and LAN would put them through commercial training.

How is it going for you? Still flying that King Air? I'm back flying Air Ambulance in a Commander. Might be back in la calle Valparaiso in April or May.

Y.

Hi Yeager, yeah still king air, soon the 350 if lucky, and some Jet if everything goes extremely well... Trying to take the BizAviation Route... most friends already Joined LAN though, hahaha

The Newspaper ad was for "surveying" purposes mainly, they cant hire people with less than 200TT, but they wanted to know how many pilots were in the National market preparing to try join LAN, they made a meeting in some hotel in Santiago and (Internally) assigned a timeframe to the hour difference to reach the 200TT... lets say Pilots with 150TT IFR would be asked to take the tests in 6 Months, Pilots With 180 TT IFR in 3 and so on... So in that way the company can make a projection of the extra-chilean pilots they might need.

So they wont put them through commercial training. Although i have heard of certain Internal program to PAY to train Pilots, that means reaching 150TT AND passign your screening (The very same that all pilots take to join) they would extend a Guarantee Letter (Is that well said?) to you to borrow money from a certain Bank to finish your training, this program is only for ground or non flightdeck personnel and Capt or FO sons.

Lan Chile Itself would not train ab-initio pilots in the near future, they have plans to hire a major Flight School here in Chile (Pretty much the same thing they did in Peru) to provide trained pilots but thats 2012 onwards and is only a project by now.

That's it

Cheers everyone

There are Mexican pilots flying all over the world. Same goes for a lot of other Latin American nationals. If LAN is allowed to hire foreign nationals then blame LAN and/or the respective governments, not the pilots responding to the ad.

In those countries all pilots are well connected one way or another, or they would not be pilots in the first place. They tell their government what the rules will look like, in their favour naturally. Recipical treatment is the only answer, hard to achieve however.
