“ALL the US regionals are advertising for OZ pilots that are E3 ELIGIBLE”

No, not All of them, some. The number sourcing pilots via the E3 system will decrease if and when conditions improve, as is the case with SkyWest. They have gone from a timeline from interview to start of a few weeks up to six months.

That's correct!

As i recall, Skywest have discontinued E3 hiring, since the end of last year/2018.

I have noticed on the MESA Airlines website, that the E3 link, under pilot careers, ISN'T, there anymore (unless i'm mistaken), but it looks to have disappeared.

GoJet, Trans State Airlines, Commutair, Piedmont (via OZ pilot), have ALL advertised during the first 2 months of 2019 on the afap website, for OZ E3 eligible pilots, to start immediately.

Wishing everyone well !

Amatuer,
Do you mean FAA PPL based on a foreign licence? Your CPL will get you a FAA PPL but to exercise the privileges of the PPL you must have both medical and BFR current. As you dont need a CASA class 1 for a PPL you should be fine. If you are planning on joining a US regional you will have to get an FAA class 1 anyway. Dont bother getting your FAA PPL based on Oz licence. You can just do the FAA ATP checkride without it.

No plan to get a PPL. This is purely to jump through the FAA/CASA hoops of getting that validity letter from CASA to the FAA. I read somewhere in this thread that you need the CASA CL1 med valid for the letter to be sent to the FAA...but then the thread drifted and it never really got answered. I just want to know if you need a valid CL1 CASA medical to get that letter...... Im in Canada now so don't really want to go back to Aus for a medical. (current Canadian CL1 Med).

Same same with MECIR (that needs an IPC by end of june) I read that it can 'lapse' and then the FAA ATP check ride with re validate it.

CASA Designated Aviation Medical Examiners located overseas

Worst case you can get a CASA medical done in Canada (or the US).

Aero Crew Solutions is a legit outfit as far as I've seen:

Legitimate they may be but why go through an agency when you can apply directly?

The only way you know it's an agency that has posted the job is when you click on the email link. I usually find agencies post ads that direct you to their website. This seems a bit deceptive to me.

Beats me. I don't think Aero Crew Solutions is an "agency" in the mode of Rishworth et al. They seem to be more of an interview prep, resume, pilot employment services outfit.

I don't know why they're involved with Trans States for headhunting since one would, as you said, apply directly with Trans States by whatever mechanism they use for that. Maybe it's just another way to spread the word.

In any event, Trans States sure is interested in gettin' some Aussies !

Hey Raplhi,

I am looking at he same as you with PDT. Currently in Melbourne and applied yesterday. Any advice on doing the same? Is commuting really feasible? So you're still working in your old job too?

cheers

Howdy from Trumpland. Commuting from Australia worked for me, but ONLY during the training phase. This was about 4 months for me where they would pos space me home and I could still fly in Oz whilst picking up the USD paycheck. Once you hit SIMs this is not really feasible, and anyway right now we have a heap of well paid OT (circa $150 usd per flight hour) on offer to pickup trips so this the current focus for me.

see me a PM if you want to split the PDT referral bonus with me ($5000 Pre tax)

cheers Ralphi.

Great! Thanks for that info! I will PM you properly as soon as I get a chance. The PDT referral split bonus sounds like a plan too.

Cheers - Chat to soon

The TSA/Aero Crew post on FAPA was almost a cry for help. Kind of amusing:

Just to clarify, the bonus is not 40k paid in year one. The bonus structure was changed in January to make it spread over years with 5k payments every six months. Who would give away 40k in year one with no contract to stay?

Envoy, for DEC. Although they don't take E3, lump sum bonuses like that do exist.

Envoy pays bonuses upfront on day one. The bonuses are subject to staying 2 years.

you can leave before the 2 years no harm no foul but you have to repay he bonuses. They repayments are prorated after year one.

Envoy doesn’t take E3’s and never have.

Im currently a captain at Envoy and have been here since late 2016.
