Re: Jobs in other EU states for multi-lingual low hours pilots?

Despite scroggs' assertion that there are buoyant times in the recruitment market, the reality is that in the UK it is as tough as ever for low houred non-jet/turbo-prop pilots. The fact that you speak other languages would be of help, but only to a limited extent. Certain countries will be very difficult to break into, unless you personally know someone in the operation, or have some qualification others don't.

You always hear of others getting jobs, often third hand, but in the last 8 months I know of only 1 person getting a job, and she knew someone in the airline, from my network of people and from my school. I reckon that must be from a pool of about 40-50 fully qualified CPL/IR holders. It's pretty grim out there...:uhoh
