Who is offering this?

There's a scam that's been running for several years out of India/Florida.

If it's the same people stay well clear!

Also, what do you want to achieve with a B727 type rating? This type is at least 20 years past its use-by date and now truly and well rests in peace.

Steer well clear of this offer.

You could get a job in the upcoming industrial powerhouse of Iran.

They'll probably be hanging on to their 727s a bit longer now Trump is in power.

OK.

First of all, a type rating should be paid for by Your employer.

Second. What´s Your work worth? A salary maybe? Will You want a place to live in, keep it warm and possibly also have food on the table? Or do You value Yourself so low that You are even ready to pay for Your working a good day´s work?

Third. If You leave all professional ethos behind and are willing to pay for a type rating, at least pick one that will leave you somewhat employable thereafter. "Glass cockpit" and "widely operated worldwide" should be rather high on Your list of priorities. An old 3-crew fuel-to-noise converter like the 727, the worldwide operators of which You can count on the fingers of one hand and still have most to spare, has style points, true, but apart from that, I would not touch it with a 10 feet pole.

But after all, it´s your choice, as the consequences will be Yours as well to handle.

So: Choose wisely.

Justin, most here paid more to fly a 737. Do what you need to do. Good luck

People who pay instead of passing exams and selections will always be and forever the lowest form of aviation life.

Do what you like but read TU.144 answer carefully. The 3rd. point is something you really should think about.

Please

If you want to join an airline so eagerly then take your CPL/IFR pass all ATPL exams and apply in Europe with companies like Ryan Air, Easy Jet or Wizz. recently there had been an AD where even Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa and BA are looking for pilots (First officers). Even in the US are plenty of jobs for eager young fellows.
Please have a look around and don't pay for working. At the moment is tons of jobs out there where u get paid for the rating and the ocupation of the right seat.

Great idea. Go for it. Do they offer courses on a 707?

Go to Copa for free. They hire guys with 350 hours to. 737 or E190 time. Nobody flies 727s anymore. You would be wasting your money and I bet there is no guarantee of employment either. Give me the money instead. I could invest it in something for you with much greater return
