Jet Airways Validation.
I know quite a few pilots who have been offered jobs including myself with Jet Airways and would like to take the job. However our main concern is that the position is based on a revalidation of our licence. Which means the Rating and medical has to be kept valid on our mother licence.
Unfortunately there can be real problems with this because, some countries dont have 777 simulators. One country that I know that has a 777 simulator cannot provide an IRE/TRE for one of checks.
If Jet can organise an Indian Licence for their expat captains, they would be a lot more takers for the jobs offered. Additionally to get an Instrument Rating and base check done, one is looking at least at 4000 pounds a year, not to mention the difficulty in arranging an IRE/TRE to undertake that check.
In addition a medical has to be done which means more expense. If Jet Airways can organise an Indian Licence I would accept the position. It is just too difficult to accept the job otherwise.
