https://www.avweb.com/flight-safety/...tion-petition/

The FAA has denied a Republic Airways petition for an exemption from regulations requiring pilots applying for an airline transport pilot (ATP) certificate to have logged 1,500 flight hours. In the petition, the airline asked that graduates from its Leadership in Flight Training Academy (LIFT) be allowed to apply for a restricted airline transport pilot (R-ATP) certificate—allowing them to serve as first officer in Part 121 operations—with the same reduced experience requirements as military or former military pilots, who may apply for an R-ATP with 750 hours total flight time. Republic argued that its proposed R-ATP Program would “exceed the safety standards of the military R-ATP” as well as making “airline pilot career opportunities more accessible for qualified individuals from underrepresented groups.”
“After full consideration of Republic’s petition for exemption and the public comments, the FAA has determined that the relief requested is not in the public interest and would adversely affect safety,” the agency stated in its decision. “The FAA finds that the supporting materials and LIFT historical data does not sufficiently support Republic’s claim that the Republic R-ATP Program is sufficiently comparable to the training program of a military branch to warrant a reduction in flight hours.”

Republic also argued in its petition, which was filed last April, that its proposed program would provide a service to the public by producing more pilots to satisfy “continuing commercial aviation demand,” including benefiting “small communities who rely on commercial aviation services.” The FAA disagreed that granting the exemption would address any pilot shortages, noting that “the exemption process is not the avenue to address the hiring difficulties of an operator that may result in service cuts to particular areas.” The “1,500-hour rule” was adopted by the FAA at the direction of Congress following the 2009 crash of a Colgan Air Flight 3407.

Apologies if this has already been asked. Anyone know of any e3 pilots who have gone to the states with the 75hrs night with the 45 full stop landings crediting the remaining 25hrs to make up the 100.
Currently building night hours and would like to know if anyone has been able to crack into one of the e3 airlines with the lower hour requirement…

Whatever airline you are applying too will have a person do a log book check (well my US airline did) to see if you have the ATP mins. Ask HR to get confirmation from whoever does the check before you come over.

honestly just make it easy on yourself and fly the extra 25 hours.

‘Most’ HR types will bypass your app unless you meet the mins unless someone is using R-ATP mins, it’ll be outside what is cookie cutter for them.

Do it stateside if possible. $100 and as straightforward as can be.

That’s great to know. I guess HR in the US have matured a little more since 2016 regarding E3’s coming over.

Thanks for clarifying.

Dr. Robin Mitchell at Eastgardens Medical Centre did mine whilst doing my Class 1 CASA medical. It got printed out on the spot. He's a no fuss great guy.

Does anyone know if previous travel to North Korea generates any issues for the E3 Visa? It makes me ineligible for an ESTA, and I’m struggling with appointments for a standard B2 Visitor Visa, so haven’t been able to test that side of it.

Why do you need a B2 if you plan to get an E3?

Obviously wouldn’t. But I’m getting a B2 for an up coming holiday and curious if anyone has been through the process of an E3 in the same situation as I’m looking at jobs in the US as well. But if it would potentially present issues, I’d like to know in advance.

Funny. That’s what the U.S. Customs and Border Protection are asking!

I know a guy who went to North Korea and got an E3 flying here. He didn't mention any undue delays.

Got a link or screenshot? For all the naysayers that said E3’s will never get hired by a major in the US.

Hi all, sorry for the potential thread drift but I’m hoping someone can help regarding E3 visa’s.

I’m currently flying the 737 in the U.K. on a U.K. ATPL. However, I also hold an Australian CPL (No ATPL subjects) and Australian passport.

Would the Australian passport allow me to apply for the E3 scheme, or is it dependant on having an Australian frozen ATPL?

Many thanks.

GA F15,

I think it sorta depends on which carrier you're talking about. I'd assume you are an Australian citizen since you hold their passport ? E3s are only for Aussie citizens.

There were some regionals that'd take an Aussie right off the boat with no FAA license: PSA, GOJET COMMUTAIR (maybe PDT too ?) take E3s...or used to. I haven't checked lately to see if they still do.

Not sure how the ACMI carriers like Atlas, Kalitta, etc. handle that but it's worth your checking if you're determined to come here. Aussies have gone to some ACMIs.
