PK4,

Thanks for the info. You're probably right about this involving a small number of people in the Grand Scheme.

That list of carriers who applied for authority to use expats will at least show people where to concentrate their efforts. A glimpse behind the curtain ! :-)))

While we're on the subject of expats at regionals, one item mentioned but not answered was a statement made in another thread by a person whose name was VH-something. I can't find it now but he said (I got the impression he was speaking from personal experience ?) it was possible to start training at a regional here WITHOUT any FAA license and emerge from training WITH an FAA license by virtue of the regional training program.

Assuming I'm remembering his statement correctly [always have to preface it that way ;-)))] , is such a thing possible ? Seems like a bit of a stretch but I'm not all that knowledgeable on the nuts & bolts. I quit paying attention to such issues when I got my ATP circa 1971.

You called? 61.153 says to get a FAA ATP you must hold a FAA or foreign commercial with an IR. If the airline has an Aircrew Program Designee they could issue an ATP as the pilot's first FAA certificate. There would have to be the normal TSA background check and there would have to be a validation of the foreign license. I'm thinking it's a lot more common in the 142 world than in the 121 world so the APD may not be familiar but it's a fairly straight forward process.

MarkerInbound,

Thanks. That would sure grease the ways for an expat and save him a lot of time, money and aggravation.

The lack of pilots is because lack of money.
Bring pilots from others countries doesn't fix the problem.
They still have to live in very expensive places with little money

While Ameriflight isn't a "regional" in the common context, they're an entry-level carrier and have a demand for pilots. They've announced a pilot flow through program to pax carrier, Allegiant. More marshaling of resources:

Bafanguy tells us about the flow thru agreement between Ameriflight and Allegant.

Here is one better.
Air Cargo Carriers with the worlds largest fleet of Shorts SD-360s. Has a flow thru agreement with Omni Air to the Boeing 777 after 5 years.
Total time required: 1200 hours, 500 cross country, Pt 135 experience.
Bases: Puerto Rico (daytime flying to Caribbean islands- sounds fun), or US mainland at out stations flying inbound to Cincinatti (DHL) or Louisville, Columbia (UPS) Monday night -Saturday morning. Sundays off.
Pay sounds pretty good at $60,000+

"Here is one better.

bpi,

Neat. This is a fairly new deal ? Always glad to see more deals and opportunities for people. Found the statement quoted below on the ACC website but it didn't show any details (Haven't checked the Omni end of things). Have to apply to see how it works, I guess, but the announcement lists a "guaranteed interview" vs a guaranteed job. And sometimes just getting an interview is a HUGE accomplishment:

"December 2016

Inquire about AirCargo Carrier's Airline progression program with Omni Air International - - SD3 to B777 - in under 5 yrs. - guaranteed interview, apply today to learn more!"

Son of a friend of mine just went from PR based ACC Captain to Omni B-777 F/O.
His cricketing legend Uncle got 'six. sixes in an over'. Sounds like the son got a 'home run'. Well played, that man.

Ameriflight has added Frontier to its flow through:


"The Career Path Pilot Program ensures pilots entering the program a pilot position with Frontier upon completion of outlined experience and training requirements."

News today that Trump plans to increase the minimum qualifying base salary for H1B and related visas to $130,000 per year.

While the exact amount may still change, the final value is likely to be over $100,000 and could practically end using H1Bs for US regional pilot recruitment. The median base salary for "Airline Pilots" hired using this visa category in FY2016 was $73,000.

It's unknown if E3 visas will be similarly restricted by the Executive Order.

Yet another variation on the headhunting theme:

"Coast Flight Training is expanding from its San Diego headquarters to establish a second location for its airline flight training program in San Marcos, TX."

"The new training facilities in San Marcos will focus on training U. S. Military helicopter pilots who are transitioning to in-demand careers as civilian airline pilots for the nationís top airlines."
