Not that I've heard of. Can't rule out the possibility of a dual citizen or green card but no E3s. I checked with someone who flew there until a year ago and he hadn't heard of any E3s...FWIW.

Ok, thanks. Speaking of green cards, does anyone know which airlines will hire pilots with an EAD, who are in the adjustment of status phase of obtaining a green card?

All of them should.

sigler,

The only way I can think of to get your question authoritatively answered is to contact their recruitment people directly and ask. Here's the website with recruiter contact at the bottom. When I looked at the page, an online chat box opened up automatically asking if they could answer any questions for me. I was tempted to ask but thought I'd best stay out of it:

Recently I asked a Commutair recruiter whether CPP to United applies to E-3 visa holders. They double checked with United HR and the answer was: only if your status in the U.S. changes to the green card holder OR citizen. Otherwise there is NO guaranteed flow for an Aussie pilot. United will not sponsor any visas.

Max T,

That's a worthwhile bit of info for planning purposes. I'd like to hear what other US legacies officially have to say in response to the same question.

Found this exchange re Aussies at US regional, Piedmont. I wonder how many Aussies (E3s) came, made it to the line but have voluntarily left for one reason or another:

“Speaking of interviews, seems you guys are hunting for Australian new hires?
How many do you have?”


"Half Dozen, or a Dozen or so? Some Kiwis too."

“One of the first ones hired recently just returned though. He got tired of the terrible schedules that go along with the low pay.”
